I hate to say it but he has a point. You guys know I love ya but you have to stop saying that this isn't important and you're working on your "real" project. Is this site a business? Is it intended to make money, fill a need in the community, enhance your ultimate goals with VD? If the answer is yes, you should treat it as you do the other thing.
Why would we want to support or be a part of something that's just a red-headed stepchild?
You've missed the point. Talknightlife is not not important. It is an ancillary feature of a bigger machine that is getting most of the attention right now. The entire project is "real" but resources are limited and currently focused on the engine of it all.
They said they'd fix it... when they can. End of story.
I haven't missed the point at all. Maybe you, in your haste to disagree with me again, missed mine. I understand their situation. I understand the master plan, perhaps more than most as I know the players and have been hearing about this for ages. My point was that Pod and Ryan should present it in a different way rather than always saying how unimportant this is. this forum may not be a huge part of the overall plan but it is a part. If it's worth doing, it's worth taking seriously and doing right. Every time someone makes a comment about this site, we hear "we know but we don't really care because we're working on something important." The intention of any forum is to develop a community of some sort. All I'm saying is that if you keep telling us that this isn't important and you don't care about it, why should we care and contribute.
You could say the same thing without the part where it's a stepchild. You could just say that "we're very busy making this the best forum in the world and as soon as we have time, we'll get that fixed."
