Anyone Else Hate The "Rooms" System

This new feature has been causing me grief ever since it was implemented.

 

Because of "rooms" I keep seeing messages that were sent MONTHS ago, being presented as though they were new. 

 

Also, when I'm logged into one of my client's "rooms" I can't see my own odesk stuff. I was logged into some agency's "room" for days and I was unable to view "find work," "my jobs," "reports" etc. I don't even know how I got logged into this room in the first place; but aside from that, why is it that when you're in a "room" your own personal nav bar for your own stuff goes away? This just strikes me as really shoddy design and an overall step back from odesk.

It is shoddy and underdeveloped and buggy and I fear the day it will be forced on all of us

(I opted out and I'm currently using the old format).

I don’t use the word hate, but I’ll make an exception. I hate the new message system.

 

Sorry, Hyun https://www.upwork.com/blog/2015/07/new-upwork-messages/

Ahoy there! I just went to the message zone to see what all the fuss is about, and I clicked on the settings cog-tyoe icon in the top left. In there's there's an option at the bottom to go back to the old-skool message style. Worth a try.

Sorry, I missed out a step... I then went to the 'Message Settings' option, there at the top.

Fox News, you led us astray. I'm very upset about this.

 

This message system confuses the me and it's only Sunday. I'm going to drown my sorrows in a cheeseburger and wine. It's very high brow in the ol' Jennifer house.

I've just this second finished a big bowl of chilli covered in cheese, with loads of basmati rice dripping in butter! Thought I'd go for the healthy option today.

 

Only got half a bottle of wine so I'm thinking of traversing the mountain and heading into the village. Last day at the mountain retreat on Tuesday, so I better get cleaning tomorrow... one last hurrah tonight!
