So, What Were We Promised With This New Community?

Re: So, What Were We Promised With This New Community?

Just to give some feedback, yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon someone from MC actually phoned my mom and said they would send my mom her Dish today. Nothing came today, but if it was only couriered today it might only arrive tomorrow. Let's see. I will keep you guys posted.

Re: So, What Were We Promised With This New Community?

I notice there was a post by @Genesistt stating how upset they were because of the non delivery of the Dish Magazine. This was on Tuesday. @Grace_DStv1 then replied that they understood the frustration and would be supplying an answer "before close of business tomorrow, you will have your feedback. Apologies for the long wait". Tomorrow in this instance would have been Wednesday. It is now THURSDAY and unless there has been some private communications between the two parties I do not see this promised feedback anywhere here? Then people want to know why most here are saying this Community Forum is a waste of time?

One thing we need to do is remember that the old forum wasn't doing well, although far better than here - MC closed the doors on much of the feedback, mostly due to very negative policy changes in the last few months there.

 

MC also insist on fighting DIY, which now appears to be official policy. A terrible mistake, you can't manipulate reality MC. And a key component of this "forum's" future success, if any...

 

Every time you've made major changes to the forums it's been worse MC, you're still listening to the wrong people.

You, or those that you report to, don't seem to get it.. there is no "sentiment and history" around the old forum  ... it's about the foolhardiness of MC replacing a fully functional forum with this rubish. The old one was 80-90% customer to customer in any case, so absolutely NO benefits here

Dear MC Customer Touchpoint Representative (Grace in this case) - please ask MC to stop trying to deny the obvious facts, many thanks.

The biggest mistake made was taking those from the public who did help for granted, it's rare to find such people that are well educated re factors of this service, and willing and able to assist.
This country / continent is also not used to badges and the likes as "rewards", good luck with that.
If you want the Lithium model to work to any degree MC, stop manipulating (poor as the attempt may be), say thank you for those who are still around despite your mistakes, and get on with helping as best as you can with fingers crossed re how it may naturally develop.

@Genesistt - your frustration is understood Smiley Sad. We're busy checking with the team involved in order to resolve this matter. Before end of business tomorrow, you will have your feedback. Apologies for the long wait.

Don't make promises you can't keep.  I tried sorting out an issue I was having with DSTV not sending my mother her DSTV Dish (she's a senior citizen and still supposed to get one).  I got a "we'll forward it to the team" and "she'll get a book with the next batch".  Nothing ever came of anything and I've tried PM-ing the moderator 3 or 4 times since then with just no answer or feedback.  So this is a problem that the rest of the community can't fix and the moderators are just flatout ignoring, because why would you bother.  If I sound peed off, it's because I am!

God, I hate this new community!  I miss my old forum where I could actually get the help I needed and get actual honest to goodness feedback!  I struggle to find where anything is on here.  I struggle to find where I need to post questions.  And MC is just non-existent!  You don't get any kind of answer from them ever. I don't think they're even monitoring this thing anymore. 

 

Whoever thought this was a good idea needs to be fired!

Agree, this is more a downgrade than upgrade.  On my pc the fonts weird and large.  No order in the posts.  Like hellopeter, old format was concise and quick to view and get what you need to see.  Here like large images, posts, and really battle to get somewhere.

 

But so far no problems this year with new explora after SDPVR mess, except for the PVR notifification message sometimes, so may be my last query and post here.  But curiosity killed the cat ,will be watching.
