That's definitely true, and a lot of people contribute to MicroPython in a lot of different ways. That's much appreciated by everyone. And there's no need to be blocked on a specific way to contribute, or on a specific change. The fact that there's a delay on some matter should not put off anyone.kfricke wrote:We are all working in respect of the community, that is for sure. I do not count contributing in "commits on github", "grep -r <author> docs/* | wc -l" or the like, but in commitment and helping and assisting the community. Even you should be able to see that i do work with stuff the community did create. I am just a stupid user of the things you and others do create, that is for sure.
Somebody really doesn't understand something. Let me quote it for you:Regarding this poll and what i am really angry about is the fact that my name is attached to my posts, including the top post. So as long this is my name tag and portrait attached to it, this is my poll. Like it or not, moderate by commenting in posts of yours and act accordingly to forum workflows. But *NEVER* put words in my mouth and let them look like mine.That is what you seem to not understand.
Summary of the nature of the changes proposed (summarized by Paul)
Sorry, but there's only one first post in each thread, and many people don't read beyond first sentences of it. So, if you call for big changes, but fail to start with a good summary, it still needs to be done. That's what you don't understand. As a moderator, I will change (or delete) any post if required for normal community process. Note that I almost never do that, and overall, we have very liberal forum. On many forums, it's permanent offtopic to discuss moderator's actions, and attempt to do so equals "cool down" ban for a user.
I don't blame, I explain.Do not blame us for being busy. You by yourself did set the timelines, so blame yourself.
Rest assured that I remember that very well, and appreciate it. That's also why I explain the situation (instead of ignoring anything which "doesn't fit"), and in general glad to answer your (or anyone's) concerns and happy to seek a solution. I'm also very glad to see that you remember that there were many other people who paid. You also may be reminded for what all those people paid - it's written (and was always written) at https://kickstarter.com/projects/214379 ... -easy-iot/ . So we do that, then anything else, as much as we can, when we can. And let me be straight: I value my time much (100USD/hr) and I already spent on answering your concerns more than you paid for. If you want to continue this useless discussion, I will have to bill you for my time.You do partially get paid from my 40 pounds for the ESP8266 kickstarter. I do know that i am only one of many. But I imagine to be one of the few to open their mouths when they see unfair and suggestive treatment.
Then please keep calm and enjoy.P.S.: I do not want your shoes and never asked for them!
