Ratings and Reviews
Grew up in Michigan, MSU grad and big fan. My wife and I plan to retire in Michigan in a couple of years. Like MLive for the variety of stories they cover, there’s something for everyone.
Writing skill levels are inconsistent, but I understand how difficult it is to have editors read every single clip that is posted.
Comment section is great, now that the mute feature is there. Would like to get feedback on why comments might get flagged, especially if I send an email requesting that feedback. Just because another flags a comment doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with that comment. Some moderators are trigger happy and need guidelines.
Please link a screen name with an email address. Too many people stealing screen names and throwing out trashy comments acting as another. Needs to stop.
Overall, a great idea, good product. Wish Illinois had ILive.
Location of stories
Would be better if the location of a story was better defined. For example sometimes a township is named, and not the county the township is in. Some counties have townships with similar or identical names so only by reading article and recognizing, or not, nearby locations like roads, can I see if an article was near me.
The articles take a while to load when my phone isn’t connected to WiFi. Comments cannot be seen when using Internet Explorer.
Lack of effort
The electronic version of the old newspapers is terrible. It is filled with out of date stories. Mix labeled items. Lack of any real reporting....pages of proms, old stories run for sometimes weeks at a time. Pop up ad clips. Here is a suggestion ...hire a person to check stories and perhaps delete articles after one day. There is a real lack of any news reporting. Sometimes I think the paper has reverted to a extensive rap sheet for criminals. There is becoming less and less reason to have mlive.
