Interesting. Pincus took an interest in tribe again, it would seem. Too bad.


Well, www.triberefugees.ning.com is getting some play these days.

Less than 14 minutes after Darell posted, I was there
I found Mark Pincus' blog and requested, very respectfully and without threatening him, to please help us over here at Tribe.

Lord knows we need it.

Let's see if that helps. Or not.
I am not nearly as frustrated and annoyed as I was, now that I know some of what happened last week..

What a mess.

Anyway, it's stupid, and juvenile and in the end, unprofessional. I do hope they work out their differences or Pincus hires a new programmer. I have a feeling he is getting a lot of resumes right now. Tribe could be a huge plum for someone to help fix up, and smooth out the kinks.

I don't get it. Who is tjcrowley and what was he doing for Pincus that he quit?

well, gotta say, that if the money some of us sent to help this "whale" stay afloat hasn't been able to buy them the "experts" needed or the hardware or the software orwhaever wear... then maybe it is time to let the damn thing go..

not that I want it too, I would miss it..

but this is NOT good business, it's a horrible display of a poorly run "business" and people's intregrity is on the line

can ya see someone filling out an app to go work at say "apple" or some such place, and listing THIS as past experience, Hell I wouldnt hire them...

and MAYBE, they needed a wake up call. yelling or cursing rarely solves anything, but Gessh, IF you do this for a profession and are not just some geek tearing your puter apart, then ya best know what you're doing and DO IT!!

Ya have the money of the people. you have promised a product. ya better be able to deliver....

just sayin...

Thanks E, I read a few of his twitters and figured that was who he was. This is so much of a bummer. Seriously. I'm copying my blogs so they can be backed up before this place burns to the ground.

I have it on good and reliable sources,

"Don't give up on Tribe yet"

as the song says, "the old man may be barely breathin"

but, the heart of Tribe IS still beating....
