The LARB has assured me that they have been working to get this sorted out for six weeks, and that they will soon have it fixed. Thanks folks. Meanwhile I took a screencap of the problem, you know, to speed things along. That is a rather strange CSS class to have built, but then I’m no designer so what do I know.
I guess the point is, if you are right and there is a contractual tie here, that’s not something they can up and break this afternoon. We don’t know, in short, if this tie is time-limited or even related to this grant they received. These are questions it seems to me important to answer in order to get the problem actually fixed.
Oh of course. And were that the case I think the more important issue would become that these grants might be predicated on ties beyond just feelings of gratitude. But LARB seems to be saying that that is not at all the case, and I’m not claiming otherwise.
Well if they are saying it isn’t the case, that it’s oversight, doesn’t the point that “shill” was jumping the gun in an unnecessarily combative way stand?
I’m with Michelle on this. In coding terms this is pretty straightforward, and there’s nothing strange about either of the CSS classes. I talked to a friend to confirm my suspicions here, and his guess is that their lookup by ISBN is broken or something. Presumably the only book purchase link that works properly at the moment is Amazon’s, and therefore the others are disabled until they are fixed. Their other options were to hold the site’s launch or to disable the working Amazon link until the other links were functional. (Possibly the latter would have been the best option here?) But if this were grant-related, why bother including the other links at all?
