In simple, i think what EVERYONE who has invested money and time into your platform is saying to you (and i know your all reading this, not just @slagle, or atleast id hope so) is fairly obvious and you would be foolish not to respond asap as its becoming the most common post on this community, just reworded in a 101 ways…
START COMMUNICATING MORE WITH YOUR CORE FOLLOWING, WE ARE LOOSING INTEREST IN YOU BECAUSE IT FEELS LIKE YOU DONT EXIST ANYMORE SIMPLY DUE TO YOUR LACK OF “COMMUNICATION”…
COMMUNICATE AND INSPIRE US AND WE WILL REMAIN LOYAL AND CREATIVE… WE CANT ALL KEEP DEVELOPING ON TOP OF THIS PLATFORM TOGETHER MAKING GREAT SOLUTIONS IF YOU DONT HELP US, MAKE FEEL INCLUDED, APPRECIATED & INSPIRED… HOW CAN WE GET EXCITED ABOUT MAKING SOLUTIONS AS A DEVELOPER COMMUNITY FOR A PLATFORM THAT CANT EVEN ANSWER BASIC QUESTIONS ABOUT THEMSELVES.
STOP SHUTTING US OUT AND GIVING US SHORT BLUNT AND DISMISSIVE “WE CANT SAY” ANSWERS TO EVERYTHING… DONT CLAIM TO BE THE WORLDS MOST “OPEN” PLATFORM AND THEN CLOSE EVERYONE OUT WHO WANTS TO HELP PUSH YOU FORWARD…
COMMUNICATION IS KEY:
1.) dev calls are a shadow of there former selves and obviously no longer a priority.
2.) alex’s commitment to weekly post updates to keep us on the ball - obsolete after 5 weeks.
I THINK YOU ARE WEEKS AWAY FROM A 110% BACKLASH FROM MAJOR ST COMMUNITY DEVELOPERS LOOSING FULL INTEREST AND STOPPING SUPPORT AND DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR CONTRBUTIONS TO YOUR PLATFORM, ITS CLEAR FROM THE WAY ALL THE MAJOR DEVS AND THINKERS ON HERE TALK ABOUT YOU NOW AS A POSE TO HOW THEY DID 2 YEARS AGO.
COMMUNITY MORALE IS AT AN ALL TIME LOW !!!
Its time to enter the public spotlight and answer some questions, re-evaluate your communication paths to devs and the community and relight the fire in us all before you loose great, creative and passionate supporters.
However i wont hold my breath and i will expect a generic reply to the only sections of this you can joggle to your advantage ignoring the core facts and issues ive pointed out alike many others before me.
