Indeed. The more garbage posts, trolling, and pointless arguments that we as a community produce, the more he has to sift through in order to find something of value to pass on to the development team.Callum's primary job is to deliver our feedback to the devs and help sort out the useful info from the hysterical nonsense
That said, he can make his own life easier with a bit more pro-active management of the community. Case in point, we have 5 pages (so far) of "content" in this thread, which could be condensed and refined to:
"TW set the target of a weekly cycle to stabilise the beta build and move it to the main branch. It's been 11 days, can we have an update please?"
That should already be obvious, and shouldn't even need to be said out loud - let alone expressed in the midst of 5 pages of fanboi vs jaded troll wars.
When you set a target and you're not going to hit it, you give an update. That's how the public market works, that's how people's jobs work (if they want to keep them). Targets get missed all the time, that's life. People have expectations, and those expectations won't always be met - but they do always need to be managed, if you want to avoid mountains of garbage posting.
There will always be trolls and stupid arguments. This is the Internet after all. But most people are satisfied by being told what the reasonable goal is, and being informed of the reasonable delays to achieving it when they happen.
