91 Strategic Directions / Re: OURMX "The New Client"
« Last post by White Stripes on October 16, 2017, 11:08:50 pm »  heres the actual thing itself... its buggy as hell but it does, to a degree, function... note that this is an old release that was mostly a 'try it out' and 'proof it exists' thing.. the actual code that makes it up is scattered about so another release would be a feat to pull off...

the search function of the forum... something many seem to forget about... is also useful...

Really ?

Aside from numerous answers to folks questions spanning many years these static pages are still in evidence.

(from post here,13104.msg74685.html#new)

One of the reasons you may not have seen everything OurMx related was likely to do with the site separation we had for OurMx topics, they would naturally appear on OurMxWorld and not WinMxWorld, a simple mistake to make.

I am of the opinion that your not a regular forum user or you would have seen many of the posts or at least one of these links above and the ones posted off forum including the ourmx forum that we parked up when the development tean dropped to one.

Whats also not shown here is any of the other support information including new tutorials for when we go open src, these describe in detail how the various bits of the client work so others can step into the battle when the time comes, all this goes on outside of your view, such material has a priority over answering the same questions umpteen times on the forum here, I will always answer questions out of politeness but for some reason the same posters make the same posts and are simply out to waste time that could be better spent elsewhere, for the same reason i havent created any new data for this year on progress, its not a vanity project I'm working on, its to get it working and completed and if that requires research i do the research if that requires some support pages I write those and share anything important with the developers area we have on the forum here, the other developers also share so we all sing from the same hymn-book, all this goes on outside of your view but have no doubts it goes on.

I'm not asking you to "put it out there" I'm merely saying you should keep folks informed.

If as you say you have done this and that, how come you never mention it? You talk about everything but.

It is not simply a matter of keeping anything to myself, I may well take a differing view than yourself on whether to release something or not but with so little in the way of support  I really feel unless somethings pretty much annoyance-free I cant toss it out there as we both know if there issues or problems it would fall to me to support it in some emergency capacity, that is the reality of the situation and whilst I am not happy with the current version it will remains out of sight.

This will not be the case forever, I am certain that transparency has been delivered even if its been the cause of much annoyance to some, the truth has always been told and this will continue to be the case, when the time is right and things look better in terms of bugs etc we can all as a community explore the open src route, this will then free both the community and myself from any further commitment and I hope lay the seeds for a more public foundation for all of us, currently the WinMX  network rests on the goodwill of less than a dozen folks, those folks are unselfish decent folks whom put you all before themselves because they care for this community, if anyone seeks to judge me for being cautious then so be it but the communities welfare has and will remain my primary concern.

I'm not annoyed or frustrated as I rarely use Winmx and have long given up on the "New client".

I was curious to see if any updated info was on this forum, but it seems you want to keep it to yourself.

Transparency is the best policy.

I would love to be able to show you my machine with all the main projects and subprojects dated and stored away for when they are needed to be added to the main build, unfortunately your never going to see what I have been up to with your own eyes and thats always a problem, if folks have no trust then its like trying to build on sand.

Originally Some folks said the whole project was made up and fake, this was disproved with a very early release that was full of problems, we all agree it needed further work, that work has been rolling on and progress has been made, the progress however is not up to a stage what I wish to deliver to the community, it needs a few more tweaks and routines and some existing code streamlining, so in short its looking a heap better but its not yet a full clone, there is then no rush to lauch a badly floating vessel when the boat we all bob along on is still holding its own in the water, I know its annoying, I know its frustrating but put yourself in my shoes for once, I know there are folks out there whom can assist in the communities client project and sit idle, the price on the community however for the laid back attitude is shrinkage and apathy, thats not my wish nor will I rest from the task, however we all use this network and I want it to live on and on for the next generation of folks needing a safe place to converse and stabilise their outlooks on life whilst sharing something of enjoyment, I am not the one holding anything back, please take some time to review the situation, we all want a secure future in terms of not having to rely on anything that could be closed overnight, we have a great community here and it would be immoral to let it sink slowly  when with a few extra hands we could have a spare boat for the time it will become necessary.

Or better still a committee  :lol:

Nice to see you about again Bluey  8)

We have a mountain of problems at the moment the main one has been zero other developers to bounce ideas off of and that alone slows dev to a crawl and then add to that any research has to be done by the same solo developer along with any testing and its hard to find anyone to help with that either and I have tried to drag a few folks into the project, it seems all anyone wants is the src code to play with and theres little wish to aid the community and a diminishing pool of folks whom have both the time and the will to do so,  I keep things ticking over and progress is made but theres no substitute for a professional developer to guide the way when theres a problem thats non obvious to resolve, that alone hold us up and its a scenario we have faced since day 1 of the project, progress has been made and will continue to be made but at a slow rate given the real life commitments I have and the lack of any further support from within the wider community, all that said however we are in a better place than some years ago in terms of being able to stand on our own two feet.
