How about ACT's Web site...
If someone would like to contribute, he will find a way to do so. But don't expect to get the award, before you have something done at all.
IF more managemt is needed, then management people just need to start DOING it and not TALKING about it. IF financial gurus think money would help, then they need to raise that money and not just say it is needed and so on.
Before you cry, "well just do all that stuff and stop complaining", you need to know that all that stuff falls into one or both of two categories. The first requires cooperation from the key developers (how can a graphic designer contribute to a GUI if he doesn't code, or how can a PR person describe to the press about where the project is going without a clear plan being agreed?).
And before you say any sort of retort resorting to elitism...
* Those of us doing the work, tend to respect others who also dig in and do work too.
* Those of us doing the work write the code. He who writes the code HAS THE FINAL SAY.
This is because we're down in the trenches, and we choose to give away the fruits of our work for others. There is an unwritten rule here that those who recieve should also give in kind.
So, when you sit there on top of the mount and preach that "you should do this and this and this and this..." guess what? it sounds like you're preaching from the mount.
tmoore, it is THAT reason why I am ascerbic to you. You have done absolutely nothing to gain credibility in this community. If you want your incredibly assertive statements to carry any weight, you need to change this and get down here in the dirt with us.
And the sheer fact you just back-pedaled on your last thread really did nothing to help your credibility. Just a tip.
