Dear University of Glasgow,

Can you please tell me when will I get a response?
All I asked was for some document that everyone should have accessed to. This level of delay is inexcusable and cannot be accepted as reasonable.

As it stands, all I can conclude is that the University of Glasgow is a secretive organisation which is run most unprofessionally.

Yours faithfully,

John Ferguson

Dear FOI Office,

On the basis of my previous experiences with your organisation I do not believe that the work involved in gathering of the requested documents is the cause of this delay. Had that been the case you would have asked for a fee.

If invoking of the review procedure will speed up the process or will force you to respond by a certain date I am happy for you to do so.

Yours sincerely,

John Ferguson

When you spend £16m to replace a Ferrari with a Lawnmower, you shouldn't be surprise by users’ reaction:

Jonathan Crawford @Jonnycrawford91
Fuck this, @GlasgowUni #MyCampus is absolute pish. I'm away for a beer in the sun as oppose to wasting time on this horrific system.

Allan @aldoclaus
The lack of response from @GlasgowUni regarding the current MyCampus cock up is shocking. Feel sorry for the new students.

Гражданство @8zz8
@GlasgowUni Was the software bought from a company with directors/connections to anyone with an italian name? #mycampus

Shanaynay @SaniaA_x
Glasgow Uni is such a joke it can't even get MyCampus to work after ten days

Douglas Stewart @SomeGraniteWall
I hope they halt all Olympic events and have a minutes silence for all the poor students who still haven't been able to register on MyCampus

Alex Gibb @AlexGibb
this is a bloody stupid system this is.'this course is compulsory....PLEASE NOTE THIS COURSE IS NOT COMPULSORY'. mycampus, i hate you

Lyndsay Skilling @LyndsaySkilling
So glad I've left Glasgow Uni when I see all these #mycampus problems #cheesingforcaley

Laura Gowrie @lauragowrie
I don't know how to work MyCampus. Whyyyy don't I have access to enrollment?! It is shite.

Paul Docherty @paultdocherty2

Donald AC Martin @donaldacmartin
MyCampus fail, shite databases and traffic lights down #TechnologicalDisaster

Euan Freeman @efreeman
The equestrian team had a comparable budget to #MyCampus. Why don't we trade it for their 2 gold and 1 silver medals?

Michael Reid @TobyZ1967
Mycampus must be worst run site in Britain,, is enough you'd no want people to go to Glasgow just to avoid experiencing frustration of it

And there thousands more in SLP11/102 (Appendix 79)
