Honestly, to be fair, I haven’t really had a lot of the CMH problems other people have reported (I mean, through my regular CMH account) and if my budget had the room right now, I’d probably upgrade – especially if I could watch on my smart TV. I put the bitty free streams on and keep them on in the background while I work most of the day. I’m pretty easily thrilled.
So you know it’s bad if I’m this frustrated, trying to watch some of today’s Desert Circuit derby.
This USEF integration has just not gone well, at least for me. Someone from USEF emailed me back and said she thought some of the problems might be a clash between the two accounts and that she’d let CMH know (the implication is that this is all their circus?).
On the whole, I’d just say the changeover could’ve benefitted from absolute idiot-proof instructions and navigation that’s in your face at both ends. My suspicion is that there’s a design fail going on that’s rooted in failing to look at the interface and process from “the outside.”
What may be obvious to people who work on the USEF Network or for CMH, is not going to be to someone who’s not living it every day. And this just feels a bit hastily pulled off.
