Dear WordPress. Your title ‘Happiness Engineers’ these past few months is a title I don’t agree with anymore. I think that title is about as funny as, ‘pigs can fly.’
You have really proven now how unhappy you can make a majority of WordPress users unhappy, whether they pay for their blog, or use a free one by throwing the Block Editor in our face from 1st June, whether we like it or not. Yet all I read from you is how a majority supposedly like it. Well from where I am sitting and reading, it’s not what I am seeing. So I don’t belive you.
But thank you for keeping the Classic Editor going, cos that is what I will be using and while Block Editor continues to be used, I do hope that you continue to keep Classic Editor going long after 2022. Please don’t ever get rid.
It’s obvious to me that I need to keep writing as part of my wellbeing. But if you ever get rid of Classic Editor means I will just have to disappear altogether off WordPress.
Not having anywhere else to go, or the idea of not writing on WordPress, bears not thinking about. But I am not able to use Block Editor on my phone. There is just not enough screen space for that editor, for me.
My phone is only where I have internet. I cannot afford internet via other means to use a computer and do it that way. The editor is also visually to busy for me and using a computer will not mske it visually any better.
A lot of things I have to sift through that don’t apply to me, making posting hours, not minutes on posts that are short in length. It makes the whole thing confusing.
I have seen how others explain how they have struggled to use it, but have shared steps to try and make the process easier for everyone else. It doesn’t make a difference. I still see the same images for the layouts of how to find what you want to create a post and as I have said, this is visually too busy for me.
So to WordPress and my readers, the day Classic Editor is ever removed, which wouldn’t surprise me in years to come WordPress Happiness Engineers doing this, I will disappear without any warning, because I won’t be able to write my post and I will be so heart broken if I have to do that, if I still feel about blogging, as I do now.
But just remember WordPress. I am not the only one that has spoken that will do this, so just think, even for a free blog, that means as I would remove my blog and not post no more, that’s one blog less you can’t put adverts on. Just how many more would you lose, whether paid or free and what affect will it have on your income, ‘Happiness Engineers?’ (What a joke that name.)
