  • Sorry this is the only means I could find to let you know that I've quoted you in my complaint to slideshare/linked in about not allowing re-upload any more. Not sure if I can include a full copy of my message (from a.sloman AT (Apologies for format) To: Cc: Aaron Sloman Subject: Who made this decision in Slideshare? Regarding the inability to update (re-upload) Slideshare presentations, about which there seem to be many disgruntled slideshare users, e.g. for reasons given here: (Cathy Miller) Reupload Feature The reupload feature allowed users to post a revised or updated copy of a prior upload. Think of it like revising an old blog post. The claim that removing is no loss because people can delete an old version and upload a new version shows a deep lack of education in computer science and software engineering, including the importance of persistent links. I would give very poor grades if I were teaching a student in this department who made such a proposal. Perhaps Slideshare (or is it Microsoft?) has been hiring the wrong sorts of people, with inadequate technical/scientific education? In that case perhaps the main fault is in the Human resources department? Is it possible to escalate this problem to a senior software engineer who understands internet mechanisms, with a request to re-evaluate the decision to remove the reupload option? Thanks.
