Final Fantasy Press - Indefinite Hiatus

Hello!

In July 2010 the newsletter staff began using delicious to compile the newsletter. It made the process more efficient and faster for us so we could include more fanwork and link to more services. In December 2010, Yahoo!, then owner of delicious, sold the service to AVOS who planned to redesign and relaunch it. We mistakenly assumed they would be retaining the current functionality. You can read an article featuring the new owners and their plans released before the redesign: YouTube Founders Revamping a Site for Link Sharing. There is also an article released the day of the redesign: Exclusive Q&A With CEO Chad Hurley.

Monday, the new design for delicious went live. There has been quite a bit of outcry (to say the least). Real time commentary can be found by following the deliciousfail hashtag on Twitter: #deliciousfail.

Unfortunately, this redesign has rendered our entire compile process impossible. Many of the features we use to quickly curate and bookmark the 30+ links we often get each day are gone. The script we use to fetch links from delicious can be made to work, but only fetches 20 links at most, where our issues are often much longer. There are many internal features we used to bookmark and curate that no longer exist: autocomplete, tag bundles, and bulk edit specifically. In short, our delicious account has been hobbled both for us and anyone who wants to browse it as an archive and our compile process derailed. Final Fantasy Press is not currently sustainable without the tool we used the most to make the newsletter possible for its editors.

It is with great regret we have to announce an indefinite hiatus. We will be waiting to see if the functionality we require is returned to delicious given the unpopularity of the recent changes. We'll be discussing our options of other services. We are very sorry about the interruption. To that end, we have made the folders we use in Google Reader to follow communities and websites public, which anyone can follow in their own RSS reader:

Edge Magazine: Sony blocks class-action suits with new online terms
Sony has revised its online terms of service, adding a new clause which prevents disgruntled users binding together and launching a class-action lawsuit against the company - unless it agrees to it. While the clause sounds unenforcable, it has legal precedent. In May, the US Supreme Court ruled that mobile operator AT&T was entitled to block customers from binding together to bring class-action lawsuits, despite lower levels of the US legal system having branded its attempt to do so as "unconscionable."
