At the end of 1999 Fortune City began to suck. As a part of a site-wide redesign they rebuilt their web-based uploading utility. They went live with it when it was still full of bugs and practically unusable, leaving it to volunteers like me to answer the flood of angry and confused posts on the message boards. They also redesigned their message boards, making them difficult to use in Internet Explorer and impossible to use in Netscape, and effectively killing the community that had grown around them.
