reguardless of what you think, #sy isn't necessary. If you were paying attention the devs responded to this thread... which means *OMG* you can communicate with them just fine.

There is no lack of communication.

I think his point is that we shouldnt have to post a thread every few days asking the same question to see if things have changed, nor should we have to keep asking devs on a regular basis, it should just be there pinned up somewhere and updated.

One of the developers has spent quite a bit of time helping me learn lua. However, if I had behaved like some people (not naming names :roll: ) he would have told me to fuck off. The devs are not here to teach people how to code spring, and in fact time the spend teaching is time they don't have to code. If you want help from them you better go out of your way to thank them for the time they are spending with you and be pleasant to be around.

Whereas your speaking of a community, you yourself can do something to help.

You can help summarize whats happening in #sy that seems important and then ask questions then put it up for all to see.

That is in fact what's happening. trepan makes threads about his gui stuff, i made threads when i implemented sm3 stuff,etc... Every developer that makes something that others have to use post about it.
There is also the SVN log, the changelog.txt or the testing threads when a new big version is going to be released in some time.
If nothing is posted, then nothing is happening...
