Can You hear A Pin Drop ?
« on: June 02, 2019, 11:07:53 am »
As its so quiet around here I thought I would have a peek around the network itself to see how things are going

Despite some rumours the actual userbase remains substancially the same as many of the proceeding years (post attacks), the two largest userbase are still the English speaking nations and the Japanese , followed closely by one or two European states, so we are all good in terms of accessibility and folks are still enjoying the network.

What we are missing out on is new users and community led strategies to increase the size of the community and dare I mention it staff here.

Despite some folks claims over the years no one runs this network and no one is in chanrge, instead there is a loose collection of hard core users undertaking all of the key roles to ensure the network remains operational, this didnt happen by itself but was organised by talks and discussion and then planned action to deliver, one thing we all have in common as WinMx users is we dont like to be bullied  or silenced.

As one of the old school folks here it concerns me that we are not talking or discussing matters that concern us or we could all rally around, we dont need rules so much as direction of travel, as a community we would do well to set some lofty goals that we can all work towards, there have been few new ideas heard here or anywhere else that I have looked  and the ideas I have seen are not really applicable to the entire community, so what is to be done for the future ?

I ask those of you whom have ideas, big plans, small plans , strategies or simply dreams to post some of them here and lets all look at focusing some of our untapped energies towards improving what we have, it really does only take a small "time" investment from all of us to create a fully formed path for the future we can all follow as a community.

considering what a pain it is to get running on the vista+ environment of windows (especially if you want some add-on toys) i dont expect too many new users... the users it has now are going to be who keep it going for as long as they live and/or the win32 api exists (beware windows 10S) ... winmx is the p2p retirement home...

Always the optimist eh lol

I think we have a lot of the problems licked in terms of being able to launch a third party client but not all yet unfortunately, we dont need to be stuck in stone and I am looking towards that time for the ultimate ending of what I can bring to the table, in the mean time it pains me to see so few folks looking to maximise their enjoyment of what we have here, I completely understand times have changed for some folks and they have changed lifestyles or careers that devour much of the time they formally put into this network and that applies to me too but without some dreams or focus we stagnate and so whilst in the long term I see a potential future in the shorter term we need to expand on the overall activity to support other potential roots and branches, not everything needs to be a big job nor should we frown upon smaller projects that deliver value to the userbase, a key component of progress will always be to seek out ideas and match those to resources, or vice versa.

Thanks for making the time to post btw Stripes, you have been a good source of ideas, knowledge and quality feedback for some time now  8)
