Harmony Central has “soft launched” our new mobile experience this past week. While we have done extensive testing, we know that with a community as large as HC that there will be items that surface that will still need to be addressed. We are asking that you utilize the thread belowto report any challenges you may encounter. Here are the things we request you provide: A brief description of the issue, the device and operating system version you were using, the browser and version, screen resolution, and a screen shot of the display.
Thanks for your patience as we work towards the best experience we can provide to our community.

  • So is this the new normal for this site?

    Takes about 15 tries to get anything to load and about another 10 to make a post or a thread?



    It worked ok for a while over the holidays but now it's even worse than it was before. The few people who remained after the last breakdown are going to start leaving.



    RIP Harmony Central

    The mere fact that so many have stuck around for so long in spite of the ridiculous state of the site speaks volumes regarding either the incredible forbearance and patience and/or stupidity of us members. I've basically had it at this point and only visit once per day to (about 90% of the time) confirm that the site is still FUBAR...

      Sadly, this does appear to be the new normal. They've really screwed up this site.
      No sig.

        I hope that the site is fixed and that people stay around. Lots of good advice, discussion, etc. here. I have been looking at Mark Wein's forum more due to the slowdowns here. Not sure of where else to go...

          Maybe we should start an online petition demanding that they fire the sysadmins.

              Every time I go to refresh a page, check my PMs or read a thread it's a gamble.

                  Tiresome to have these problems over and over. Can someone suggest solutions to the management, please?

                    A petition won't make a difference. As I mentioned on a couple of other threads, the fact that this forum has been essentially broken starting with and even before the HC 2.0 disaster and continues to get worse and worse makes it pretty obvious that the site owners simply don't give a ****************. The site is owned by the GC/MF/M123 conglomerate and with all of the resources a company like that has, if they haven't bothered to fix the site in several years despite constant outages and breakdowns and hundreds or maybe even thousands of user complaints, not to mention the loss of members, readers, posters, etc..., I think that sends a pretty clear message that they just don't care.

                      Folks......GC is BILLIONS in the RED...do you think they a) Have money to throw at this place, or b) Give a single ****************?

                        As long as it runs at all people will still keep coming back! There are other good forums out there that would be even better with more traffic, but it seems people would rather keep coming here then starting over somewhere else. Sometimes a change can really do you good.
