I would like to make a serious suggestion on changing the policy on giving out information on the big milestone Bukkit updates-in-progress (1.5, 1.6, 1.7 ...) 1) Post a list of issues on the front page titled "stuff we need to do before 1.7.2 can be released." 2) When you finish coding stuff cross that over from the list so everyone knows it's done. 3) At the end of the post add "Bukkit 1.7.2 is xx% done." 4) ?? 5) Profit! The list-of-things-to-do and the "% done" would be - of course - inaccurate as the first 95% could take a day or two and the last 5% could take a week. But it doesn't really matter. This would greatly ease people's minds and take only a few minutes of the developers time every now and then. It would be worth it in my experience. I know many people are of the school of thought that think that the time would be "better spend coding than posting" - but I completely disagree with that mentality. The benefit to everyone would be much greater from getting this information out there than the few hours - or even days - of development time lost on writing and updating a forum post. It's all about appearances. People stay happy when they feel they can take a peep at "hey, I wonder what's going on with the Bukkit update?" - even if that information is inaccurate. It doesn't matter. What matters is the effort being made to include your users in this great experience that is Bukkit. Now it's more of a ... "keep your mouth shut, bite your thumb and wait patiently... or else" approach which only begs more questions and gives forum moderators gray hairs. Every project that posts their progress and problems in the open makes me feel really good about the project. It's something that is important. It's kike reading a newspaper - you want to take a look at things that interest and matter to you every now and then. It makes you feel like you are a part of the progress. So don't shut the gate. Keep it open. Include us - your users - in the progress. It makes people feel good and gives out a very positive appearance about the project. Thanks for listening. A Minecraft server owner, Pilvinen.
