“Not all bugs will be addressed because it depends on the severity of the bug and how many sites are affected” ~ Happiness Engineer
Pingbacks are restored!
It’s no secret that during the past three weeks I’ve been airing my grievances firmly in the direction of the WordPress Happiness Engineers.
Throughout the process, I remained polite but forthright, that so, I wasn’t proud of my constant complaints. No one likes a chronic complainer, and I was turning into a shrew; but in this instance, I really felt that if I didn’t continue to communicate , harass and question, my issues would not be dealt with, and I was correct.
Let’s take the pingback issue. It didn’t affect everyone, but it did affect some of us, and despite urging bloggers to please report their own faults, I was surprised to be told by a couple of lady bloggers – someone’s already reported it.
These ladies and I shared the same pingback issue, but they failed to report the problem, they believed that if WordPress was already aware then why did they need to report the fault again!
Meanwhile, I also experienced one or two problems using my iPad App. Today one of the engineers managed to replicate one of my issues. One problem turned out to be a bug that is affecting the iPad App. The bug is in the theme that GC and I have on Weekly Prompts.
Finally, we get to the really interesting part – A conversation that took place today with one of the Happiness Engineers.
“I’m going to report this issue as a bug to our theme developers. As a heads up, we’re working through a backlog at the moment so it may take a little while before they are able to review it. Not all bugs will be addressed because it depends on the severity of the bug and how many sites are affected.”
I doubt I am the only one who has realised that if every blogger affected by faulty pingbacks had reported their own individual faults, this issue would not have lasted for three whole weeks.
I am not judging, but let us hope that in the future people will independently and individually speak out, and perhaps the Happiness engineers might be more inclined to verdantly spread a little our way! 🌝
