I don't recall it being this bad even during the beta stage of CSM2 (although that may be as time heals all wounds). Any idea what they are actually trying to achieve or fix ?
The focus currently is on getting the new content-admin tools working ok in cms2. Once that's done I think all these smaller annoyances will get fixed. I do report them to HQ, so they're definitely on the list
I think Frans nailed it; the Web Dev team normally pounce on stuff like this long before anyone even notices it; but are currently, temporarily, engaged on a high priority project. If I'm being vague, it's because there's not a single definitive reason known to me. Little porblems come up and get fixed all the time, some are more visible than others, sometimes there are more or less than usual. Also, it's part of the price that comes with pushing the envelope on developing better and new features. A static html site with no pay per scene, no tagging, nor dynamic lining between shoot, model, fetish specific searches, and so on, would have drastically fewer issues. It would also be ugly, unintuitive, outdated, inefficient and inflexible.
