"The daily updates really suck nowadays"


  

          

Okayplayers hear me out and tell the site what you think:

What happened to the daily updates with some actual news about the Okayartists. Back in the early days of this site there was actually NEWS about what The Roots were doing. MAYBE, just maybe there was the occasional link to a boards discussion, but now the daily updates are filled with that bullshit. We can all read the boards for ourselves, we dont need links to ten meaningless threads each day.

I come to the site to see what the okayartists are up to, where they will be touring, what projects they are working on, what they are doing etc etc. Please try and incorporate more news and less links to the discussion board. I enjoy the daily picture but ENOUGH with the links to the board. It has been over two weeks since there was any real roots news at all, and all that was was the picture of Thought and the news that "he's not shaving his locks". What great news. Dont the okaywebmasters know any Roots news?

Please someone with an OK icon respond to this and defend yourself on why your update doesnt have and actual news in it and is full of your favorite discussion board threads. Slow down on the flash intro's and site redesigns and work on something that the fans actually care about. Respond. Peace.

>Okayplayers hear me out and tell
>the site what you think:

hi, it's not a site, it's actual people.
>
>
>What happened to the daily updates
>with some actual news about
>the Okayartists.

Well, if someone would call and let us know what they are doing, or if we could get a publicist who feels like doing extra work call and tell us what they are doing, then everything would be straight.

But, we're a staff of THREE on the web side, and that is everything from sales, to mailing list, to server admin, to e-mail answerer, to programmer, to designer, etc...Three people.

So, if no one (and I made all the artists and their managers booklets on "guide to okayplayer) is letting me know what they are doing, and i cannot (i am still here at 1:30am answering e-mails and trying to play catch-up and fixing broken shit on the site and i started at 10am...this is nonstop shit here)...and i cannot play chase with people all day to find out what they are up to, what am i supposed to do besides keep what i DO find on the front page of artists sites and update on the community?

Back in
>the early days of this
>site there was actually NEWS
>about what The Roots were
>doing.

Yes, that was me. It was just me, and just the roots. they were all in philly. the site was much smaller. i would bust my ass with a funsaver camera to get the news. i cannot chase everyone. what do you suggest i do? and no, there is no money to hire "chasers". All the roots weren't working on solo projects either. Lots are now, so they are not in one place.

MAYBE, just maybe
>there was the occasional link
>to a boards discussion, but
>now the daily updates are
>filled with that bullshit.

Don't read them, maybe? Just a suggestion.

>We can all read the
>boards for ourselves, we dont
>need links to ten meaningless
>threads each day.

Then yell at the artists, publicists, etc...whoever you think ain't doing they job. We could have fucking quit. We could have said "eff this" and not even given okayplayers shine.


>I come to the site to
>see what the okayartists are
>up to,

see their sections. see posts on this board. That's all we know. Matter of fact, everyone is mostly in studio or "chilling" between albums.

where they will
>be touring, what projects they
>are working on, what they
>are doing etc etc.

And all I know, and I bust my ass to get this info, is on their sites.


>Please try and incorporate more
>news and less links to
>the discussion board.

I'll see if B wants to. I know I'm like "whatever".

I
>enjoy the daily picture but
>ENOUGH with the links to
>the board. It has
>been over two weeks since
>there was any real roots
>news at all, and all
>that was was the picture

>that "he's not shaving his

Okay. Thought's in studio. Over and over and over and over.

> Dont the okaywebmasters know
>any Roots news?

That's the point. We are WEBMASTERS and everything else you could think of that work at a website (sect, gopher, writers, etc.) We are not researchers, but we do our best. I don't know what to tell you. The most recent news is on their site. there is only so many times i can say "thought is still in studio" cause that's where he is!


>Please someone with an OK icon
>respond to this and defend
>yourself on why your update
>doesnt have and actual news
>in it and is full
>of your favorite discussion board
>threads.

I did. I don't need to defend myself, though. Shit, we ain't got a writing staff, a research staff, a design staff, a sect, all that. People don't want the site to get "too big", but when the signs of us being small and overworked start to show, all they do is bitch...hmmm...

Slow down on
>the flash intro's and site
>redesigns and work on something
>that the fans actually care
>about.

I've always known fans care about content. I, however, care about my sanity. That's why I should be in bed now. Doh! But, in order to keep ANY part of this site around, we have to do outside work and stay up till crazy late.

Oh, and defend ourselves.

dammit. Lord deliver me.

Best to you. Happy holidays.

like the site redesigning and the Flash intro's.

As far as the news is concerned - I don't think it's angieee's job to be their puppy dog and follow all the members of The Roots around trying to gather information for the updates page.

I believe that the updates are more than fine. If there's a slow news day then there's a slow news day. It's not like The Roots and affiliated artists are doing something interesting and so important for an update.

"Ohh...?uest just got done taking a shit. Talib and Hi-Tek aren't here right now, but you can believe I'm going to get on the phone and bug them to tell me what they did for the last week!"

give me a break.

stress and B hold it down lovely in the update sektion.

In response to Reply # 0


          

today i...
woke up.
watched the view.
erased a beat i spent 11 hours working on for riq.
got a storefront house appraised.
took in a meeting.
ran to petstore to buy my mom some fish.
worked out at gym.
scrapped a beat i made for the new babyface album.
worked on another jawn for riq.
argued with scratch about missing evian water.
promised my sister that i'd see her band perform at the north star bar.
went to a brave new world to watch a deranged bilal scare the shit out of his hometown audience.
laughed hard as hell when he mangled musiq's "just friends" in his "soul sista" ad-libs. no one in audience caught it. but me and james.
ran to his after jawn only to realize as the dj was playing that: the neptunes do the same beat, the sound of jigga's voice makes women dance, "lift you fist" is probably the best mix i've ever done at our philadelphia studio, i really really hope timb gives riq a jawn as addictive as "snnnnnnnooooooop dawwwwgg", wondered what the fuss over the new ludacris single is about.

left early cause a drunken negroe insists that his 2 year internship at action news should be enough experience to direct a music video of the roots.

showered.
ate salad.
thinking of good ass excuse for why i neglected to call ang when i said that i'd call her after i went to gym (absent minded...sorry)
bout to watch sesame street on noggin.
see d online, think i'll IM him....
(later)
d: i ain't doin nothin but chillin!

there you have it.

Hold up, what?

Ang, pay no mind...I remember when updates weren't daily and I had to check back everyday to get nothing new. I would much rather get the new Boondocks everyday (cause you know I don't read the paper) and when Roots/okayartists news comes out, good, I'm glad.

ALSO, just LOVE that this post was ironically on the new front page (which, by the way, from a usability/research standpoint is completely excellent.)

Ang, you know what your traffic is, and that is the best measurement of what does and does not work. Don't let one soul bring you down.

Thats what I like to hear Quest. I appreciate hearing stuff like that because that is what I am most interested in, what my idols are doing every day. I wish the rest of the crew were as into the boards as you.

AND

to the entire okayplayer staff....

This is the best artist/s site on the web. I spend way too much time online and I know that this is HANDS DOWN the best site on the net. I was just trying to make some constructive criticism and I am glad you guys read it. BTW i think working at okayplayer would be a dream come true, the OKP phenomenon is pretty hot in itself and the site is the driving force for it. Thanks for all your hard work for okayplayer.com and especially taking the time to address my concerns.

Peace and Love

I wish all Okayplayers a safe and happy New Years!!!

I'd like to think that you knew he was being terribly sarcastic, and you were responding with an even subtler form of sarcasm.

Okayplayer is cool and all but if you gotta be kidding. If the daily updates turned into ?uest listing his meals and what he watched on television, I'd flee to Eminem.com and never return.

jesus' hairy nuts, what the hell is up with the sudden uproar over the new look of the site? aint shit changed...

okp is still a place where people who like (or dont like) the roots and/or d'angelo and/or dilated peoples and/or reflection eternal and/or the jazzyfatnastees and/or the boondocks and/or any other thing can discuss butt plugs and hip hop. hell its not even required that you like any of the above. okp is still run by those who bust their ass to provide a place where people can chill the eff out online.

this extends to all things: if you dont like it, leave it the fuck alone.

now its clear why shes called stress...

and yes part of the reason im defending her is cause i got a link on the front page to my post in activist. post links for all!!!!!!

that and she once laughed at my questlove throwpillow idea.

hey stress you have a thing for lazy unemployed skinny not quite short/not quite tall/not even quite right moody but funny and constantly constipated native american sociology majors who tried to make it to the toilet last week in the dark to throw up but instead ran into a wall and threw up all over said wall?

'cuz it really is hard to write something meaningful, coherent, and funny in 3 paragraphs (now even shorter) when all you know is black thought is in the studio, and common will be on tv (but it ain't even next week, so now i gotta tell you that again when it actually is going to happen).

see my wed, dec 27 update - the one where i said that the labels have shut down for the holidays. 'tis the season for nothing to happen. that's why i wrote about the sports board. there's a lot of sports going on. good material there. and guess what...princeton is the squad in college lacrosse! didn't know that yesterday. okayplayer really is swell!

anybody got d's number? i'll give him a ring, see what he's up to. oh yeah, quest just said d was chilling. so i'll tell you about that in my next update.

happy kwanzaa!

Besides the fact that Angieee has enough things to worry about keeping the site running, sometimes shit just don't happen. Sometimes there is no fuckin news to report. Even if she just talked to every one of the okayartists just yesterday, there just might be not a damn thing going on to put in the updates. And if you still wanna bitch, peep the quote from Ang in my sig.

ANY of it myself. It's obviously a labor of love. It's only natural for people to get a raincoat when they think they're being shitted upon, hence the response(s).

I enjoy the interaction and I know there is no way in TWO H*ELLS I could come near stepping up to the plate with this sort of determination.

And although I somewhat agree with your point, it's not always what you say but how you say it. The sad truth is that it seems a lot of "them" are no where near as interested as ?uest in contributing to this site. Let's pray that changes because I think this is definitely precedents that OKP is setting, regardless of what anyone deem to be a "shortcoming". . .however minor.

P.S. I think the overall makeover is a STEP ^, kudos. . .

Alright, first time posting but long time reader. I got nothing to do so I might as well start here
You gotta give people some respect. This same stuff goes on everywhere. There's always a bunch of people who don't care and they just want more. If you wanted more news, why don't you fly to Philly and do it yourself?

The people and artists on this site work HAAAARD. If you've ever worked HAAAAARD in your life than you would know why the updates are the way they are and you wouldn't be writing this post.

You're like one of those very few, yet very annoying listeners who used to call the radio station whining and bitching at me cause they didn't like the last hour of music.

Angie puts 100% into this site every damn day. It wouldn't be here without her. Any REAL Okayplayer recognizes this and wouldn't be ignant enough as to complain about lack of news (it ain't her fault!)

Besides, I'd like to see you to write updates that are as quirky and humorous as the ones she writes. Without any news. And without a window to look out.

It ain't easy. I know, I write out of a basement.

Just thought I'd throw that in there . . .
