@doe3879: Okay, now it's off your chest. Feel any better?
Yes, I feel better now.
And sorry about all those typo and non nonsensical sentence structures. I did wrote it all in one go. English being my second language didn't help and I had never used the word "rant" in my life, only heard it from podcast and other audio/video forms.
Glad to see I'm not the only one feeling this way.
Need to let out all my frustration accumulated over the years. Sorry for the language.
I love the people at GaintBomb, the things they do and the contents they put on the site. The site looks great and it's very well designed in a lot of ways. But why the fuck wouldn't they ever organize all the contents in a sensible manner. The video feature page is one lousy mess with everything crammed into it. Even looking up for the video I want but unsure of the "name" is difficult, let alone trying to browse it.
Why do they insist on not adding more categories/folders/pages for all the different type of content they are coming up with, even with a brand new page redesign. For god sake Patrick had been doing the "Worth Reading" article for years now, how the fuck can there not be a page with a list of all those articles he wrote? And why isn't there an article page in general? Do they not care to keep a record of the stories they wrote at all?
Most of these categories of content sorting can sometimes be solve with using the search. Like sometimes I can search "Random PC game" and the site would display all that "category" of videos Vinny and Dave did back in the days. But half the time the search wouldn't work, right now I try to search Worth Reading and Worth Playing; nothing showed up.
And speaking of search. Maybe I'm stupid and never figure out how but is there no search by thread title?
Basically it comes down to me having some sort of OCD. With all these contents displayed in such a mess, drives me crazy over the years. And I love going back to watch all those "one off" silly they've done over the years, like the dungeon siege retrospective video Vinny and Ryan did. Please organize the site, it would be a shame all those content lost in pile of mess for new comer to the site.
Have that beer weekend sometimes and tag the content. Or select portion of the community do it, I'm sure there are people eagering to do it.
