Time to Say Goodbye

Last Update: November 05, 2020

For most people the new layout is good but for me it is a total nightmare. I spent months learning to navigate WA until I had it down to a fine art and I could find what I wanted almost immediately.

Now it takes me time I haven't got to do the simplest of tasks when it comes to navigation. I am unwilling to spend all the time I would need to in order to relearn how to navigate my way around the new layout.

All the platform is causing me at the moment is stress and frustration that I am no longer willing to accept. The only way to avoid the stress and frustration is to leave.

Passion led me here but change is sending me away.

I hope the greater majority get on with the new platform whereas my medical conditions render it to stressful for me. I wish you all luck.

Hi Derek, I can relate to your frustration. For me it is like anything new, I have to spend more time to learn how to navigate through this new update. It is three days, and I do feel there are still bugs being ironed out.
I just hope you would re-consider and stick with WA.

Best wishes,
Michael

I am not from the UK, but even as I studied history as I was growing up, one of the comments that always kept me going was the quote from Winston Churchill during WWII about " never give up, never give up, never give up ".
I am sorry to hear about your medical conditions, I completely understand how frustrating it can be to first learn a new way of doing things, but you did it before and succeeded.
I have been having a bit of difficulty myself, but what helped me was trying to see that Kyle and Carson have made it easier to use by putting the dashboard of the website on top, then you just pick out what task you want to accomplish.
I think the previous platform was hard to learn because you had to go all over the place to find the button for the task you were working on.
I would encourage you to try working on it for a while longer , everything you have already learned how to do has just been put in one place on top of the website to select.
I sincerely hope your health and morale improve and I wish you all the best whatever you decide.

I'm sorry to hear you're leaving. I know the new changes are tough, especially when you just got everything down pat. I was just learning the old system and now have to start fresh.
I wish you all the best in life and in everything you do. May your future burn bright.

Dear Derek,

Sad to hear about your decision. You are such a valued member here.
If the stress you are feeling is way more than the pain of losing touch with all the friends you have made here, then, by all means, we wish that you find happiness ahead.
If not, we shall see you back in a few days, hopefully.

With love,
Aparna

Hi Derek, the rearrangement can be the thing that will be a problem for many, I would suggest hang in there.
It appears that there are many bugs in the system, and updating a platform like WA was always going to be a big one

The lay out is not dissimilar to other larger platforms, so it is becoming a tend.

I will say snap out of it and stay the course. If you are having real issues a way to ease in is just access the platform through the email notifications, it gives the classical view.

There will be aspects that will challenge, just a matter of riding that learning curve.

Stay with it, I know that you won't be giving up your journey, just give WA the chance.

Best wishes.

I am really sorry to see WA doing such a large update without a thorough testing first. When I come in through emails I get the new layout.

Hi, Derek, I am hearing you, it kind of threw me as well, I have more than a few projects on the go so didn't need this at this time I suggested the email notifications because it bypasses the main dashboard, you can come in and I think the main thing is that you can scroll the comments. From here explore the main dashboard.

This works on laptop and desktop, a different story for mobile still similar.

Part of the motivation for WA is survival, the education resources niche is becoming a fiercely competitive niche. Almost every other day there is a course creation program launching on JVZoo and Warrior. There are a lot of players emerging in the market, from observation Kyle and Carsons driver is to overdeliver and above all stay very relevant and cutting edge in this space.

I hope that you stick around Derek you are a valued member of the community and will be missed.
