I have been seeing series of complaints on this site from people informing me that once a post gets more than 10 comments some of them begin to fade into the edges. I wondered exactly what they were talking about, until someone showed me how my site loads on his system and how so many comments become unreadable. I felt bad, so people were actually going through this type of hassles to read?
It became an assignment for me to get this problem solved. I was going to do all in my power to make browsing through this site easy and enjoyable. I was happy though, that at least, I had a challenge in my hand; those that don’t have wars, have no victories. I’m glad to tell you that it’s done… I checked it again today and everybody should be able to see all the comments now, even when they get to 1000 :). I also think it’s a good idea to use this opportunity to solicit for ideas on what we can do to make your experience on this site even better.
Here is your opportunity to provide us with ideas on how we can make this site serve you better. When I say we, I mean all of us. There are a few things that won’t change being critical ingredients of our brand, like the colors and my Afro :), but ideas are welcome on all other areas you believe will make it more homely and interactive.
I’ll suggest that your ideas can be as crazy as possible, nothing is impossible, believe me :).
Haven said that, be happy when you have challenges, wars, struggles, problems and confusions, it’s in the middle of these that we have victories. There is not winner without a challenge, no conqueror without a conquest. No Victories without wars. When you overcome it means you moved over something that came.
When I look back at the best years of my life till date, they were those times when I overcame. Some of these thoughts show how some of these leaders and thinkers view adversity.
“In every difficult situation is potential value. Believe this, then begin looking for it.” – Norman Vincent Peale
The reason we don’t see the value in those difficult situations is because we are not consciously looking for them. If you look at most fruits, the harder the back, the softer the inside 🙂 In fact if you look at coconut that has a really hard back, there is mostly water inside 🙂
“You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” -Walt Disney
Coming from a man who got fired up from getting fired. He was told he lacked artistic talent. Yeah right! Mickey mouse proved all that wrong a long time ago. I remember how bad I felt when I didn’t do as well as any of my friends in my JSS 3 exams. It was so painful then. The thought of it however made me ensure that I never strayed out of top position in my SSS class. If it hadn’t looked bad then, I probably wouldn’t have buckled up. And finally in the words of Richard Back -“Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.” Take a closer look at your problems, and find ways to convert your smack in the but to a pat on the back 🙂
Your ideas…. Please
