[I]t's just a stupid advertisement disguised as testing. They can do it all themselves. There is ZERO reason for this post to exist unless they have really incompetent coders that are bad at testing. I know their codrs (brad included) suck, but they don't suck this much.
You clearly know nothing about Quality Assurance (rough translation for you: 'testing') and next to nothing about programming.
1) FotoBilder including LiveJournal.com's hosted installation ScrapBook is in a BETA stage. That means ALL sub-aspects of it are subject to testing. In your special world
perhaps a team of programmers I can probably count on one hand are able to code+test+isolatebugs+fixeverything and work from conception to release all without user testing. In the real world
100,000+ people with a myriad of different needs and platforms can test and offer feedback that one person cannot. You may want to look up the definition of open-source too; so you can 'refresh' your knowledge...
2) You are clearly not technically qualified
to make judgments about the coding expertise of the developers. The LiveJournal server code is installed and used in companies like Sun Microsystems and the United States Dept. of Energy. Components like Memcache, Perlbal are used on such high-use sites as Wikipedia, Slashdot and more. Much of the programming and ideas were produced by Brad. I honestly think organisations like those
are far, far better judges of programming prowess than yourself; given the unprecedented level of ignorance you've displayed in this community.
3) You are welcome to leave
this community at any time. Indeed, you may find an alternative journalling portal better fits your 'requirements'.
4) Although it might be tempting to suggest you contribute code to the open-source project if you are so confident of your own talents, in this case I think that would be unwise. Given the way you've shamed yourself in this community a better use of your time would be working on your social skills, gaining a basic grasp of what's known as 'netiquette', and developing some
