Stating the same thing again and again when its already self evident is unhelpful, bring something to the table Joanne and let folks like myself get on with undertaking the work we as supposed to be doing.
I was just gathering up a list of things that the community can do for itself to improve matters,
New Wav files for both the new client and the older items like robomx and bendmx , leechhammer and moni, lets hear something new
AscII pictures and art that folks can use in the chat rooms, there are tools about to assist in creating such art.
Language files for the new client need creating based on an english template, also look at updating any of the older programs to handle different languages.
Posting news articles to help free up the time of the staff here to more critical thing, whilst making sure folks have a reason to keep coming here.
Posting up or creating articles that show folks some of the tricks of the seasoned network users, remember those old text docs we have all downloaded that have great titles and always gave some helpful information ?
Chatting in the chat rooms instead of lurking to help hold the community together, failure to do this has led to a few of the rooms disappearing, with great social interactions being undertaken folks make more efforts to fight past any annoyances so lets make sure they have a reason to bother.
Planning and strategising new ways to expand the userbase, this is something all of you can do and all it takes is a simple idea and a group discussion to expand further in any direction likely to be of help.
We need to grow and link to all of the existing community sites and better still add to their number, diversification is critical to cover all angles of our community sphere, so lets all make our own winmx support/ blog sites each with its own special flavour.
We need to head hunt further developers and this is something the community can assist with as its impossible to have enough time to gather up such folks when you have no free time or any idea where they might be hiding.
What about some new trivia files for those mxc bot users its not hard to make them or growing this further lets create some subject specific ones to assist folks with specific topics they need to learn it might even be a great concept for an education room on winmx, the winmx university where you can read and answer questions on a range of topics and maybe have a yearly "brains of winmx" competition open to all ?
Content creation - do you have pictures art , poems and songs, or you play the flute or banjo
you can create or collate free content that you want to share then please do so, we have a lot of users here still and each one is talented in some way so lets tap that to see what is out there we can all enjoy,
Older project maintainers, some of the older winmx projects need named maintainers so that they don't rot in the dirt and fall into disuse, a champion could be appointed to ensure such occurrences are few and new avenues are explored to make the most of our rich legacy of programs and projects that might still deliver fun and functionality in the future.
That's my few off-the-head ideas folks. now what about hearing from you in what you want to see or do ?
