Town Hall Meeting is in session .
― Jane Austen,
I have been blogging with Word Press for many years now and as such feel myself to be an unoffical tribal elder and perhaps spokeman for the majority of those users who would rather suffer in silence than question the system.
I do not know if you have noticed the unorthodox manoeuver but the login format has changed drastically the way a user can navigate his/her way through the enhanced site.
You now have to thoroughly – and I do mean thoroughly – scrutinize the choices you make and the site destinations you want to visit or else you will end up in a state of utter confusion and site chaos.
Many find this recently adopted approach confusing, intimidating , uncalled for and at times downright unprecedented. It is a managerial decision that has definitely raised the hackles on many longtime users who have probably grown comfortable with the familiar way of doing things around here.
One person I recently received a comment from felt it was an act of “unmitigated gall”. She had purchased a premuim layout from Word Press and is now discovering that her financial investment and creative effort to present a professionally credible image of herself and business is in jeopardy.
She added that she has a “set it and forget it” attitude towards her site. She is a professional business woman who does not have the time to overly invest in the chaotic maintenance of the Word Press blogging site. Her customers are now experiencing difficulties in linking up with her site.
I am sure that she is not the only person feeling this way about the recent changes to the site. For that reason I have included a brief survey lightly touching on the number of issues you might be feeling towards this radical restructuring of the site.
Feel free to add your comments and suggestions. Hopefully someone on the WP staff will listen. A silent majority needs to voice their opinions.
Town council is now in session and the floor is open to your comments and ideas.

There will be an update on this vote in one week’s time. Be sure to set the public record straight with your input on the matter.
