@fukuro_zoku: Hehe, I wouldn't blame you if you did. I don't know if its getting worse or if I'm just out of tolerance for the problems but its started to really bug me.
The last two sites I'm a member of that have updated went down for a day and came back. There were a couple of minor glitches but site functionality was improved. There were new features. Fewer bugs. Faster. One of those sites had quite a bit of traffic and was run by one guy in his off time; he was the admin, engineer, everything. The other was run by a husband and wife team, who again, did everything.
But CV with its engineering team 'updates' and loses features, gains bugs, looses functionality, and takes forever to fix.. anything. Comic Vine will take years to catch up to where it was before the update in terms of site functionality.
We hope to break even but it looks like that's too much to ask for.
