And also the problem of thinking a silent comunity means everithing is awesome instead of the comunity just stop caring.
That is not true. I might voted for mobil as well, but it was thinking that if it was implemented, they will keep the focus on desktop/web and expand the team to cover the new targets…
I did not voted to split the scarse resources to have a mediocre desktop/web on the pursuit of mobile that will be medriocre as well
And that is not on the voters, it is 100% a lousy managment. If you dont have the resourse to have 2 good products, say no, focus on having a GOOD one and make it more profitable first, then expand the team an get a good new product.
not what I’m suggesting at all
I vote for features as well
As Markus notes its easy to core “Implement Android” if that matters to you
But compiler bugs arent if you haven’t hit them - yet
And so lots of feature requests get lots of upvotes while bugs dont
If all they look at is upvotes then you can see why they focus on implementing features
But features & bug report sHAVE to be considered as 2 separate piles - not one giant pile
Not doing this means bugs will always fall well below feature request in terms of popularity
And then we have the issue of “bugs dont get fixed”
The Principe of BugBash is not to have too many Bugs to fix immediately. And that is the Case. While the people have their favorite Bug and the Citizens have no Bug: there are not many people having problems with this Bug while not so many people need this for their Work and their Income. Make it with CodenameOne, IntelliJ or Netbeans: BAM you will have it immediately
Maybe xojo didnt think a lot with this Bug Bash move. They have a REALLY BIG problem, this event raised a little hope for many, and if xojo close the event with users feeling (as usual) “it is the same empty promisse”… more drops on sales… Hope is their current bussiness model, it will be even harder for xojo to recover confidence.
Maybe only if they declare a success on reports, too much to solve them on a month and make the marketing saying that and anounce at least the rest of the year to solve them (and actually puting a REAL effor to solve them)
