An Update on Slicethepie

For years now, I have been a continued member of the music site, Slicethepie, but recently the site updated and it's left behind a sour note.

The first thing I noticed, is the issue of if you type your username and password when you are asked, the site tells you incorrect, no matter if it is or not. This will eventually result in a lockout of your account, if you are not careful. However, if you simply type your password in at the top upper left corner where it asks for it, you're automatically granted access to the site. This can be a nuisance to members.

Next, there is the idea of you must give Slicethepie access to your exact whereabouts or you can't log into the site.  In addition, if you're a firefox user, forget about getting into your account, because access will be denied no matter what. Internet Explorer works fine, but again a nuisance for members who prefer firefox.

Finally, When you review songs, many times, no matter how much you vary your reviews, the site will insist your review is the same as the last review you did. Sorry, but there is a big difference between a rap song and a christian Rock song. Also, it doesn't matter how many times or how much you change the review, you still cannot submit it when this happens as it will still claim your review is similar to the last review you did.

The only real plus side to the site right now is that they are offering a big chunk of change for music reviews right now, which is nice. 

However, the big question is, will I remain a member of Slicethepie, since the new changes have occurred? Maybe. Only time will really tell. For now, I will remain a member, but if the issues continue, then they can say adios to this member.
