I'll tell you what, if you swim over from Ireland you can have one free too :P [...]
You call that for free
[...] If you have a few (tens of) thousand pounds to get some kind of franchise system up and going then sure ;)
So, you'll do all the hard work, and I'd collect royalties then?
[...] It's like they are saying okay lets re-write this and re-write that and splice it all together and hope the site still works, when what we really need is a fresh new site built from that ground up to 2018's coding standards. [...]
Well, judging by the fact that the latest revamp of the chat system swallowed the exchanges I had with a user, and GOG's not going to do anything about it, I'd say that's a quite accurate assessment.
Well, I wouldn't expect you to come here and say that somebody at GOG said so, even if they had, would I now? It's about how it comes across, especially when those decisions are from questionable to not making any sense from the user experience side.
A prominent example would be the scrapping of game update notifications; currently there are at least four active, plus one that has left, users providing the service that GOG should, while all GOG said is they'll come back eventually
™, and has somebody flagging games manually, which may or may not show a game as updated in one's library.
Another is the scrapping of display options of reviews - why were those scrapped in the first place? And no word/intention to restore them, because hey, why do that, AF's doing a fine job at it, at least until you decide another revamp.
Should I mention the lack of forum links on game pages? It's clearly doable as evidenced by you placing them for InDev games, but for the rest it's either use BE or no dice.
What about changelogs tacked away in people's libraries as if the update status of games here is some big governmental secret? Again, the community to the rescue, and no word or action from GOG when we suggested ways of handling them.
Do I need to go on? The list's a lot longer.
As for bug fixes - please, I've yet to see a bug not related to logging in, buying and downloading games that GOG hasn't labelled as "low priority", thus no ETA, and no pressure for anybody to work on it.
And while you're here, thanks for the latest revamp of the chat system that swallowed one more exchange of messages with another user, one that had miraculously survived the introduction of the NAS.
