Reply To: A important Statement
To be honest, if you wanted to you could ignore the community. But making this closed source puts people off because they don’t know whether it exists or not. I’d rather people annoy me but support me and be there, knowing that what I am doing actually will benefit people in some way. Putting this completely behind curtains closes off the community and doesn’t help you at all. I don’t mind closed source, but when a group just completely goes off the radar with a few vague “We’re working on it, but don’t want anyone in or knowing anything about it”, wouldn’t you just lose hope? You wouldn’t be able to know if they’re working on it, if they’re finished, if anything is even being done.
Pretty sad that it’s turned out this way. If I am telling the truth, before you all decided to move or whatever there wasn’t even a big problem. People were asking questions and what not, but there was like 3-4 a week, if ANY??? This isn’t like some big thing where hundreds would ask a week how to do this and that and what all.
We are all bonded by the love for LU. Closing your doors is IMO the wrong way to go. Set up some communication at least. No matter how annoying I or others can get, it all comes from our love of LU. We want this to happen, we want to help you, we want to see you succeed. If the worst comes to worst, revamp the whole project, delete LUNI and go with DLU, but involve some of the community, slowly handpick and open yourselves up more and more after you have gotten a core group. Doing so will greatly benefit the future of development and team morale altogether.
