ahhh new muppets.com how annoying

weird sick people
This is an open letter to anyone at the Muppet Holding Company, or with any knowledge in the activites of The Muppet Holding Company in respects to their website.
Since early this summer Muppet fans have been excited to see what The Muppet Holding Company had in store for the Muppet fans. A website was launched telling the fans to stay tuned to see a new website in "fall 2004". In September 2004 (the begining of Fall) fans began to wonder when they could expect to see the new website. Their questions were answered when the website changed from the generic message to a countdown to the website's launch. Fans rejoiced as they not only know the site was coming, but had a good idea when it would be here.
Originally the site countdown to the new Muppets.com said the site would be up on:
October 26, 2004 at 05:55:54 AM Greenwich Mean time (GMT)
Strangly on the night of October 25, 2004 (only a few hours before the site should have launched) the counter jumped back to show a new release date for the site. The new counter says the site will launch on:
November 16, 2004 at 12:56:41 PM Greenwich Mean time (GMT)
Now, almost 24-hours after the orignal countdown said the site should have been up on the web and ready for visitors to explore and enjoy the countdown remains counting down the middle of November.
Now, I am not upset that the site was delayed in launch. I've waited since before July to see the new Muppet's site and I can easily wait another 22 days. I would however like to know one thing why The Muppet Holding Company changed the release date for the site. The knew for 37+ days when they were planning to launch the site; why only hours before the site was going to launch did they change their mind? Is there a reason for this? Was the site just not ready, are they waiting to make more of an event out of the launch, or have they decided to add more to it before launch? Why was it pushed back? And why was it pushed back so far? Why did they create a countdown that was to the second when they did not plan to live up to it? I am not upset, I am just confused. I would like to know why The Muppet Holding Company would make a promise to the fan community and then break it? Please answer. Thank you.
It'd be cool if it launches on time this time. Nov. 16 is Beebers' birthday!
That'd be kinda cool for her!
well i dont know
maybe ther just gonna make it better!
see look your on this thread too
leave me aloooneeee
ha im just kidding
Well, it's time for me to go to class so I don't have a choice anyway.
how many posts get u up to member?
I believe that you need 100 points to become a member and 1,000 points to become a senior member.
Its 35 for member (for me it was 35 posts)
im a quarter of a way there
thanks for informing me!
oh only 35 score
Actually, you only need 30 posts to become a "member" and 1000 posts to become a "senior member."
yay it gets lower and lower everytime
just like disneys credibility!!!
Isn't it possible that their original estimate was simply wrong? I'm guessing they didn't have it finished by the countdown time, so they pushed it back. It happens--especially with anything technical like designing a web site.
Also, it's just a web site and probably not worth all of the posts/threads complaining about it. I'd rather have them delay it so it works properly than have a site with tons of broken links and other problems.
