Forum Suddenly Switched How Named Are Displayed?

Well it's not an issue of doing anything wrong, but I think most people like to know who is in charge whenever they join an organization or work for a company.
The name of the owner is in the upper left corner of the site. Whomever does work for him by proxy is self-evident when you do something wrong.

Joining an org or working for a company is not what's happening when you post on a website so the comparative argument you pose is not relevant.
 
It is a demonstrable point in the UX field that initial negative feedback is not as helpful as you might think. In the short term, humans typically react negatively to change they don't themselves initiate.

The real question will be how folks feel about it in a few weeks or so, after the shock of unannounced change wears off.
That happened months ago. It's gratifying that haven't noticed it until today.
I'm having trouble reconciling these two posts. It would seem that we are supposed to wait a few weeks before posting any complaints to make sure they are legitimate and not just a hostile reaction to change, but also that if we wait to long to say we don't like something it is disregarded as not being important because it wasn't brought up soon enough.

Well from from your last two comments, you and I no longer need converse.

As with anything, it depends on the circumstances surrounding the problem, what the complaint is, and often how the complaint is presented. If you look at a complaint "process" then the point about reconciliation makes sense, but processes don't live in a vacuum. They only get invoked with appropriate details.

Once you have the specifics of what the posts were directly referring to, they make perfect sense and they're not meant to be reconciled with each other.

Be well

That's because they are talking about different things.

I said nothing about, "supposed to wait". You can post about it whenever you want.

I'm talking about a major change, that pretty much everyone was sure to notice, and that initial reaction might be biased to the negative for reasons that don't have to deal with the details or content of the of the change. If we get a rush of negative feedback right at the get-go we might want to wait to see if it is still a problem a while afterwards.

Morrus is talking about a change that, as far as we can tell, wasn't even noted for several months. It wasn't a problem at the time, and like only one person finds it a problem now. That's pretty much a non-issue.

For what it's worth, I noticed it at the time it changed, and it's definitely irritating, but not to the point that I'd come here to complain about it, especially if it helps pages load significantly faster.

I'll add my discontent to the thread/name/level/badges changes, however. The rest I could probably get used to... losing the badges stings a little

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
I will just point out that I posted and posted and posted and finally (FINALLY) got enough gold to get me my tardis badge. The bestest badge (IMO).

Like a week before the change occurred getting rid of badges.

BADGES? WE DON'T NEED NO STEENKIN' BADGES!!!

Really, I'm sad. No tardis badge, and no easy way to see I'm higher "ranked" than Umbran. I'm only here for the props.

Oh, and the paladin love.

I like the top/bottom arrangement, but I miss seeing the level numbers and titles. What happened to those?

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
Still waiting for level numbers and titles to come back again... :(
What about badges? So, true story- I saved and saved and saved and finally got the tardis badge ...

And it was within the week that they made the change, so it doesn't display!

BADGES? WE DON'T NEED NO STEEKIN' BADGES!!!!
