    I Gave Up on JKO - How Bow Choo?

    First, I can't thank Austin enough for giving us an alternative to PBB (and JKO)
    - takes the sting outta' VS buttfucking both forums despite concerns of the members.
    If not for a viable, familiar alternative, I believe many of us would be sick with anger.

    I just posted this on JKO, because the "new" JKO is foreign and loathsome to me.
    Well, I believe I gave it enough of a chance, but I'm calling bullshit: this chick has a dong.
    It was semi-tolerable-ish (only 50% fucked) 'til they did the same "upgrade" bullshit to PBB.

    The way I see it, I didn't leave JKO - Pirate and JKO were taken away despite the members.
    Not happy about hanging it up here, definitely not gloating, and I wish all of you the best.

    For anyone with Pirate4x4 caliber of sensibilities (thick skin), I'll be on irate4x4.com.
    For anyone who's easily offended - at all - be honest, just stay right here (please).

    May still post here, but making no promises because the JKO I joined got murdered.
    TL/DR: the changes to JKO and PBB made me . . . irate. Fuck this noise - I'm out.
    So . . . who else has zero appetite for the newly-minted "tranny JKO"?

    I haven't given it up on JKO completely yet, but as time goes on that will probably change. To me the interface change from the software overall didn't bother me, it was the overall feel of the site and the way the new admins were treating members. I know there are people complaining about the advertising, but for myself I don't experience that due to the way I setup my browser.

    So I'm here now hoping this great experiment will work out in the end 😎

      I’m kinda busy with Wifey’s new Gladiator right now but check JKO occasionally. Still have my 07 4 door and LJ. JKOwners definitely sucks now as do a lot of the old Jeep forums.

          I tried to be accepting of the upgrade. I put on my welding shield and gave it a chance. I helped others see the good. It still sucks.
          None of my critiques are opinion driven just observations.

          - Regardless what Cricket n' Jeff say, there are missing posts and content.
          - Search no longer returns relevant results. It's a struggle to find content.
          - Navigating JKO now means being knee-deep in spam at any given time.
          - The UI has a lot of negative space and navigational struggles that require added clicks n' mousing
          - Throttle errors pop up when trying to edit posts or report posts
          - Content (posts and entire threads) seems to be out of sync. I assume there is some back end synchronization between instances that gets lagged

          I've provided both online and offline feedback on how to manage the spam and of course, it was ignored. I provided some helpful hints about good UI design and again, was ignored. I am a developer by trade and manage an organization of developers, so I know how to pull down my pants before going poop.

          JKO's absentee mods are exactly that. Whatever.

          When I access JKO, I'm met with active topics that are the same 5 vendors updating the same 5 threads over and over, followed by bots that dredge up ancient threads with vague pigeon-english replies that suck in less-experienced members' replies. Those threads then get thread-humped to fucking death by the post-padding knuckleheads that feel post count has some sort of meaning.

          Anyway. My Jeep is just 🏳️‍🌈 bolt-ons so I have nothing cool to contribute, but I'm happy to be here anyway. Thanks Austin.
          I would like to contribute to an open-source JKU cage that includes bends and cut sheets, so please don't vote me off the island yet.

            snout - I think you went above & beyond to try to help the hapless Canooks unfuck JKO.

            Hell, my feedback to them amounted to "don't fucking lock threads" and "GTFO of Chit Chat"

            Also, your take on the changes was objective and fair (at least as compared to my take).

            The content & vitality were waning, but they nailed the fuck outta' the coffin lid IMO.

            Glad to see you made it here.
            If you need a reference, I can confirm that you're enough of an asshole for this place

              Well, here I am. I saw the posts on JKO mentioning this place. As little as I am likely to post, let's see what we can make of it.

                Amazing how a forum can be gutted so quickly. I am not a fan of the "give it a chance you will like it" attitude.

                  Hey, I gave it a chance (within the limits of my patience, which may not be ideal).

                  Never been an altar boy, but I think I know when someone's fixin' to fawk me.

                        Dr. Slippyfist does have a gentle bedside manner


                        SIDE NOTE: I feel bad about starting a ~chit chat thread in a Tech subforum, but this seemed the most appropriate place.
                        It's just nice having a JK subforum that's not an offsite bastard stepchild like it was on VSBB.
                        All the Jeep bullshit may get crammed together, In which case this should probably go to Shat.

                        If a mod wants to move this, no worries - do what ya' gotta' do.
                        To that mod: please pardon my noob mistake . . . noob

                          I'll hang out until ev'ry other fuckin' post becomes some bullshit sayin' to "search the forum" like on JKO.

                          Sad to see the culprit is already on here tho.

                            Ah, it's good to see you here too. I have to say, it wouldn't be the same without your passive aggressive comments.

                              Not sure I’ll ever be able to offer much here but I’ve grown fond of you fellas.

                              don’t get mad, you left the trail of crumbs.
