    It'd be more realistic if everyone of FS was paid $$$$ and working full time, but we're an volunteer team.


    Well, that's what I do not understand. The only explanation for this mindset that makes any sense to me, is being afraid of increased criticism, and if so, would mean you still are tied to or tied up in an "we have to act professionally though we can't be since it's a hobby not a job" kind of mentality. The interesting thing is, that it's always stressed (in writing) that fs is a band of free time devs but the way you present yourself (company image and alike) contradicts those claims entirely. Showing what you can do and can't do due to your logistical, staff and financial resources or lack thereof using e.g. that to do list, would basically mean, taking yourself and what you are saying about yourself more seriously. If you use a to do list and people are pissed because you might not be working fast enough in their opinion, well *@!# them then, since you told us you are a hobby dev team. Slow progress is nothing to be ashamed of given your circumstances but hiding it and giving oneself a professional image in my opinion is. My suggestion basically is about coherence. Right now the public image does not fit the output. Take a risk! I promise I will stand by and be ready to write raging replies if your effort is being criticized. That's the help I can offer due to my lack of any computer skills ; )
  2. In Topic: What are the ambitions for Resurgence ?

    Yeah, I agree. Honestly, I don't hold any judgement for FS devs for not wanting to professionalize. I regret this choice but I respect it.

    The problem is that FS falls between two stalls. They're amateurs who wanna stay amateurs, yet in the same time they act really serious, they communicate about being a company, they give all of them position titles such as CEO, Company director, Project Coordinator, Team manager, Lead developer and so on, they keep saying that they have high standards and that they're going to do an awesome game, they communicate on the development progress.

    It is to be expected that people get confused and ask about their ambitions.


    kudos!
    it's rare to see a discussion in a thread lead up to an actual gain of knowledge.
    i think, scylk's last comment wouldn't have been possible without the prior dicussion.
    with his last comment he hit the nail right on the head.
    i can relate to the frustration caused by the contradictory sitution (public image vs. actual circumstances).
  3. In Topic: End of an Era |FA|

    oh damn...that's sad news.
    the fa server is one of the few well populated servers, the one server I can hop on, when every other server is empty.
    too bad you are calling it quits. it's definitely a hard blow for what little is left of the public Urt scene.
    i do hope the players will migrate to other servers.
    thanks for running the ctf fa server.
