Looks like Ubnt also changed their forum style; a lot of unhappy folks over there as well. Seems like post are now through tags as opposed to discussion topics. Are all forums heading this way? I don’t understand why change something that works
Thx for my decision to move 2M ago to Unify platform (router, switch, APs) I have no issues in my also in company network, then I have no idea about U-community.
SynoMan/Rusty community is enough for me , of course with all of you gents! Sometime we need limited our digital life, because we lose the real.
I have a full UniFi setup at home. I stumbled into the new community the day it went live and wondered what in the world had happened. My first thought was they’d f$#ked it just like Synology did. At least they have the balls to own up to the mistake. Time will tell just how much they manage to fix it.
What I don’t understand is, why?? Why mess with a perfectly functional platform and turn it into a steaming pile of ?
It costs momey to do it, and, you alienate your entire customer base and piss off the very people you use as a resource to help sell and support products.
I can answer why.
You can see anywhere around you:
people aren’t rational.
there are tons of “non-experienced” people who do their business based on “I think”, but they don’t listen
internal development (UBQT CEO confirmed). It is not about how many JS developers I can bring, or what perfect framework is it. It is up to - if I have an idea - is it in line of my customers expectations?
if it’s out of the basic expectation, how I can manage it?
.... then the enabler of the “do it better” is based on listening, then thinking.
They have a feedback. It will take a time and cost when they repair the current job.
But people do same job in still same way - again and again. An example- how many people bought NAS, then they are unsatisfied, then ask for a help, the just start an understanding about the possibilities of the NAS. This is the real life.
I don't care. Bought a bunch of POE access points from them. Hooked them up to a Cisco POE switch. None of them worked. Turned out they were originally designed to only work with their POE switches. They then changed the design to - gasp - meet industry standards. However they didn't change the model number or version number. So I ordered WAPs that said they met spec, but they were old ones that didn't.
Send them all back and purged Ubiquity from any future vendor lists.
