1. "Nations" are still ridiculous. Barely workable, for all the many reasons expressed across the vine.
2. "Nations". And the front page is still ugly and incoherent. A trendy look from tumblr. Trendy, but flying in the face of generations of research on effective communications design.
3. "Nations" are still ridiculous. Whatever "logic" was behind them was clearly flawed.
4. "Nations". Participation seems to have dropped. Discussion certainly has. The only advantage of this is that some truly disagreeable people have wandered off to darker pastures -- where it's not so easy to block them.
5. "Nations" are still ridiculous. They serve no purpose that wasn't addressed in Groups as a means of like-minded folk to gather.
6. "Nations". Still no explanation (that I have found) for the logic behind these "improvements" after the initial apologies for lousy service. When will someone at the admin level step up and explain these?
7. "Nations" are still ridiculous. Many members (including me) have apparently set up "nations" of themselves only in order to post anything to the vine. Did someone foresee this development? What possible advantage does this confer? It merely adds an unnecessary level of confusion in getting anything posted.
8. "Nations". Who or what is served by these? A single coherent conversation is now scattered across a dozen or more incoherent "nations."
9. "Nations". If there's a "nations in support of nations" group, it has an embarrassingly low membership.
10. "Nations". Many Nations Under Chaos.
