When a computer application or hardware design feature has unintended or sometimes embarrassing consequences.
Getting Feature Fucked commonly occurs in word processing and email applications. For example you type a message that uses a misspelled version the word “incidentally” but the auto correct feature fixes it and it becomes “indecently”.
Very often this behavior occurs during important correspondences, such as with ones boss, can have undesirable consequences when the unintended word fits the sentence structure but drastically changes it meaning.
Can also occur in voice recognition applications. For example the scene in Wild Hogs where “Alternate Spec’s” is interpreted as “Alternate Sex”
Having your Facebook account converted over to the new and "improved" facebook timeline feature. This can be either be intentional by the user or a complete screw job from Facebook. This can have the unintended consequence of leaving you Feature Fucked by making pictures of you drunk in college readily accessible on your front page.
Wow, I just timelined myself and all my stuff is in one place! AWESOME!
I just logged into Facebook and they timelined me! NO!!!!!!!
I'd like to use that new social reader app but I don't want to get timelined. I like my old Facebook page.
A level of status. Typically used in reference to being physically, mentally, morally/ asthetically, performance-wise, or even theoretically damaged in some way. It, in and of itself has many gradient levels, such as 'slightly fucked up', or 'extremely fucked up', but all versions have to do with describing the level of damage. A wonderfully universal root word, to be sure.
1. (physical): "Ow! Man, I just fucked up my thumb by slamming it with my hammer!"
2. (mentally): "That chick is SO fucked up, she ate a full ounce of magic mushrooms!"
3. (morally/ asthetically): "See that landscaping feature? Now THAT is fucked up! Anyone with half a brain wouldn't do that!"
4. (performance-wise): "This horse's lap time is so fucked up, I could wak around the track faster than him!"
5. (theoretically): "Naw, man...that would be so fucked up if you did that!"
Getting fucked over; simple things being fucked up or broken
We got tq'd when tq implemented a new feature, or simply bugged out an old one and called it a feature.
A thing or action (esp a design decision) that once seemed rather reasonable and harmless, but over a longer period of time has proven itself to be categorically fucked in every way imaginable.
That was a really innoculous 'feature'
v. - To get screwed over by a dumb senior management decision.
They Dilberted me again! My boss promised a customer a feature that doesn't exist, and now I'll have to work nights and weekends to implement it.
reconfuckingsideration (re khun FUK ing sid err AY shun) n. what Urban Dictionary editors with any sense call the 'new' reconsideration feature on Urban Dictionary for they know it has the potential to be total bullshit because it's a way to rewrite history, censor other people's definitions AND see one's name on the reconsideration statistics list as a contributor to the crusade.
Sane, logical, stable UD editor:Sally, have you been working the reconsideration feature Aaron added to UD?
My girlfriend Sally: No! I have not. It's fucked up for people, especially n00bs, to have the power to fuck with somebody's definitions.
Sane, logical, stable UD editor: Chill Sally, damn. Aaron will ban you from talk if you don't watch it.
My girlfriend Sally: I don't give a rat's ass about no stinkin' reconfuckingsideration crusade. It sucks.
