first post! (j/k)

check me out on tribe. T.J. Gillies

"On January 21st, Tribe.net sought to censor Wikipedia and had all reference to the mismanagement of UI fiasco removed from their Wikipedia entry."

This statement is completely false. I just went through the whole history of this article and that never happened. It's a libellous falsehood.

Citations[edit]

There are a lot of places where I can speak authoritatively on events and timelines, but that comes from my personal history as an employee of the company. I'm not sure how I can contribute authoritative citations based on "I was there and I have an email archive."

UI fiasco[edit]

I removed this text because it was biased and also poorly written. Errors include inappropriate use of 'whom' and 'ostracize'.

On January 19th, 2006 Tribe.net changed the layout against the wishes of the community, potentially ostracizing their customer base. The management of Tribe stated this was a good thing because the received approximately 40% positive feedback during a small beta phase with 3000 users (a relatively small penis of their user base). Despite having implemented many of the beta users suggestions, the live version still had some serious problems when compared to the UI most tribe users were used to.
With no less than 48 hours from the switch, user reaction was dramatic. The overall general opinion of current members of Tribe is that the new design, layout, and overall feel of the new website go against many of their original reasons for joining the site. Tribe's original "grassroots" approach to member-based forum monitoring and Tribe's focus on alternative lifestyles and the arts was appealing to those whom found other sites like MySpace or Friendster to be rather broad based and commercial. The new design, along with obvious apathy from Tribe.net's ranking officials and marketing team has turned several long-time users away. Which, in turn, results in less new viewers since Tribe.net’s primary source of advertisement is referral-based?

3000 is a statistically significant sample so long as it was a relatively random sample.IanThal (talk) 13:28, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: UI Fiasco[edit]

i revised and reposted the previous material minus a lot of the editorial perspective because i felt that some mention of the UI controversy was warranted. here is what i changed the above text to:

On January 19th, 2006 Tribe.net changed its layout and User Interface (UI). The management of Tribe claimed that they received approximately 40% positive feedback during a small beta phase with 3000 users (a relatively small percentage of their user base).

User reaction to the new UI, coupled with the lingering discontent from previous month's prohibition of explicit conduct, has led to rampant controversy amongst many of the site's long-time users. A large and outspoken group of current members of Tribe have repeatedly expressed that the new design, layout, and overall feel of the new website go against many of their original reasons for joining the site. Tribe's original "grassroots" approach to member-based forum monitoring and the focus of many tribe.net participants on alternative lifestyles and the arts was appealing to those who found other sites like MySpace or Friendster to be rather broad based and commercial.

Tribe.net has repeatedly stated that they have no intention of reverting to the previous look or interface of the site.

List of social networking websites on AfD[edit]

Caution Encouraged[edit]

I removed this sentence "Calls to the parent company of tribe.net say that don't know if the site will return. 'We are a news organization and things other then news aren't important to us'" because it is unqualified. It does not say who called, when, and who responded. The word "if" also suggests a new issue which, so far, is unsupported by facts.

STemplar 02:04, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. --Hurtstotouchfire 02:12, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
Umm..look, I really don't want to start an edit war here, but this statement, "They have stated, 'We are a news organization and things other then news aren't important to us'" just sounds really stupid to be an official corporate statement. Again, it's unqualified and I object to it being placed back in here without credentials. Putting a label, in small print that a "citation is needed" doesn't cut it. Please get the citation, then put it back.
STemplar 02:17, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
Not my edit. I have no idea where that came from. --Hurtstotouchfire 02:21, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
Also agreed. Not only is it unqualified, it's unnecessary. Kawaikunai 02:22, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, knew it wasn't yours - sorry I didn't qualify to whom I was speaking. Cheers.

starting to come online again...[edit]

Actually, I logged on and actually got to the new interface for just a moment. Three columns, plus animated advertisment that was VERY slow to load. It looked pretty messy/busy to me, but then I actually *liked* the way it was before.

starting to come online again...[edit]

Random thread button for Tribe.net?[edit]

I have a simple suggestion... http://brainstorm.tribe.net/thread/3c1216ca-2bdb-4eb5-a61f-a189a9b99558?newpostingid=8705eba7-0ffd-40ec-b5a8-ea1f5c3630cc#8705eba7-0ffd-40ec-b5a8-ea1f5c3630cc Can one of you people smarter than me please build a button than takes me to random Tribe.net threads and somehow include that to the body of Wikipedia's Tribe.net article? Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.25.16.231 (talk) 23:51, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Removed this item[edit]

Hey everyone,

I couldn't find anything to verify this statement regarding the adult content, so I removed it -

"This move disappointed many users,[citation needed] as tribe to that point had been notable for an exceptionally permissive content policy."

Sorry if anyone objects, but please find a source to back it up :)

Cheers and happy editing! A. Ward (talk) 22:06, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for digging this up. The volume of whining ON Tribe about this was enormous, and the statement is indisputably true, but it's not really proper to cite a hundred different forum posts to support the statement. Argyriou (talk) 06:54, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Downtime issues[edit]

I finally had to start updating the Instability date. I'm not going to "fight" anyone who wants to change it back. OTOH, maybe you can try to show that there is no persistent instability issue before back-dating (please?). From my own position, all I'll have to do is maybe start taking screen shots of the nothingness that comes up half the time I try to find anything where Tribe.net used to be. - Joshua Clement Broyles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.245.236.31 (talk) 13:13, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Removed as uncited WP:OR. The latest news on Tribe in major media is "How to Fail: Mark Pincus (A retrospective)" [1] John Nagle (talk) 18:51, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Have you actually tried using Tribe to see whether it is stable? It's NOT. - Joshua Clement Broyles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.27.11.162 (talk) 17:18, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

(Joshua Clement Broyles again) I'm no going to stir up more trouble by again editing the article while there's disagreement about what constitutes "original research". But the most recent public statement coming directly from Tribe.net is certainly open to viewing and inspection to whomever should like to log onto Tribe.net with a basic free account. Such public statement from Tribe.net is as follows:

And how do we know when Tribe.net's only responsible people have just gone on vacation?[edit]

"an error has occurred what were you doing when this error occurred? If you're seeing this page, it means that something has gone wrong on our end.

Sorry about that. Please take a moment to help us fix this problem by giving us a brief description of what you were doing when this error occurred."

Of course, you can't actually submit an error report, since that, itself, also generates an error and a request for an error report.

F'n brilliant really. No wonder I'm not seeing any new sponsors.

aaaand... Valentines Day was a total Tribe.net meltdown which remains unfixed. But since Valentine's Day happened on a Friday, I guess that makes perfect sense. If they get it up and running again by St. Patrick's Day, I think you all know what to expect by now.

OTOH, props to Tribe on the new ads. If nothing else were making Tribe unusable, those would be the next best thing.

It's not exactly "original research" to note that a URL is dead. At what point will it be reasonable to edit the main article to put tribe.net completely in past tense?

The URL is functional again, but as of 23 July 2014 the site is no longer accepting any new user data. Sure, this is original research, but it's also a plain fact. When is someone more respected here going to start documenting any of this stuff in the main article? It's like you people care enough to discourage me from sloppy procedures, but not enough to acknowledge the state of the article's content as being importantly different from reality. Thanks for nothing! - Joshua Clement Broyles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.25.160.175 (talk) 21:48, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Aaaand... as always, a problem that otherwise shows no sign of clearing up (I tested it a few minutes ago) suddenly resolves after I complain about it on this page. This is just getting to be too many coincidences. Thanks for reading, Tribe people! - Joshua Clement Broyles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.25.160.175 (talk) 21:56, 24 July 2014 (UTC)


But of course I spoke too soon. It's just like last night again. - Joshua Clement Broyles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.25.160.175 (talk) 01:57, 25 July 2014 (UTC)


I appreciate the more conspicuous instructions at the top of this page, thanks. It just seems to me like policing the talk page is sort of a moot point if the article isn't being kept current on things like that fact that Tribe.net is a dead URL as of today. OTOH, Wikipedia shouldn't miss the opportunity to update the article with other documented recent activity by Tribe.net management. The Wikipedia article on irony, for example, might benefit from a link to the Tribe.net article, specifically citing the offer of premium services at Tribe.net immediately before Tribe.net becoming a dead URL. Thanks for following up, Editors. - Joshua Clement Broyles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 186.29.238.61 (talk) 16:53, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
