Doesn’t remember my log in and kicks me out randomly
Ignoring all the other glitches, the major one that is really starting to get on my nerves is when the app will randomly kick me out and make me log back in, so if I don’t then I cannot do or interact with anything in the app.
It’s gotten even worse today too, I was scrolling through a post and trying to upvote a few, but each time I did so it asked me to log in, I would put in the email and password, it would tell me that it worked, but then literally five seconds later it had logged me out again.
It’s really hard to enjoy an app when it doesn’t let you look at or interact with its contents.
Great content, horrible censorship
I love the content that they have, but after reading so many reviews about their censorship, and receiving an email myself, I’m done. They only get 2 stars because of the content.
My 1st “oops” was to make a negative post regarding the last President. Wasn’t even that bad. But 38 people downvoted me, so that was strike 1. Now, I made a comment regarding a post that seems to be based on fictional information, and because I made a post about doing my own research before forming an opinion based on something skeptical I read once on the internet that 10 people downvoted, I have been suspended from making comments for FIVE WHOLE DAYS! However will I manage?! They also pick and choose who can use certain words and who gets censored. I totally understand about keeping things positive, but it seems they only care about downvotes vs what what actually said. I wouldn’t waste ur time. I’ve already deleted and notified them they can remove my account. With their current score, I doubt they’ll b around much longer anyway.
Could be great, but it’s not.
Much of the material on Bored Panda is lifted wholesale from other sites, particularly Reddit and Twitter. Most of this material is at least a couple of years old. There is some original content which is usually pretty good, but not always. Unfortunately, the regurgitated content seems to be taking over.
No effort is given to match the photos with the content matter, and, more egregiously, no credit is given to photographers or artists whose work has been co-opted. Finally, a depressing amount of the content is factually wrong; apparently fact checking is not a thing at Bored Panda.
Finally, Bored Panda gives you the option to either upvote or downvote people’s comments. This gets abused all the time, with people receiving downvotes either arbitrarily or because the reader disagrees with the commenter’s opinion. This in and of itself isn’t that much of a problem. What is a problem is that BP keeps track of downvotes, and after a certain number will no longer permit that person to comment. Bored Panda users have protested against this policy, but have been soundly ignored.
Frankly, I’m about to delete this app because it’s so frustrating (the app itself is very unstable and has frequent glitches.)
