How can a site as massive, as successful and as lucrative as penny-arcade.com be so broken?
It’s an interesting question for which I’d love to hear an answer.
These are hardly isolated incidents. For months they’ve had problems with the structure of the site. Posts don’t appear, comics don’t appear, links don’t go to the right comic, the list goes on.
They told us they’d fixed them, but things still seem to be very, very broken.
I’m hardly one to talk, the html validation icon down the bottom of my browser continually whining on about the deficiency of my code.
However my site (for the moment) is lucky to get thirty unique visitors a day, so perhaps I could be excused.
I love PA, but when you get millions of hits a day, and presumably thousands of dollars revenue, I can’t imagine that I would find any excuse reasonable.
