Ode to 500px

Published March 5th, 2012

Oh 500px, I think the word "improvement" means something different to you than it does to me, and the other mortals that use this service. Wall went away and then came back, but to get to it you have to do many complicated things now. And where oh where has Activity gone? I am now reduced to reading my emails to find out why my score has inched up a tad. And flow was such a silly idea, it doesn't bear thinking about.

What is a word that means the exact opposite of "improvement" I ask myself. That would be something like: "worsen, downgrade, fracture, destroy, ruin, spoil, undo, shatter, smash, deteriorate, decay, disintegrate, degenerate, go bad, decline, malfunction." Pick any of those.

The Jury is stil out!

Not sure I'm loving the new 'improved' 500px. It's better than it was last night, but I still have some issues. For instance, where's 'Activity?' or its equivalent? In the past that's where I went first, to see if anyone had written on my wall (no wall now) and to see if any of my shots had been commented upon or faved/liked. Then I could repay the compliment. Now while I can see that my score has gone up, I can't see a way to find out why, unless I click on each shot to see if there are new comments. Not something I have time for. And I want my wall back!
