And he certainly has not been the only one in this thread with a "do this, do that" structure... yet he's the one getting fired back at.
You are determined that you are the experts and anything that doesn't fit your world view is condescending, personal, and inflammatory.
As for me being self-promoting, I am not promoting anything. I am stating the facts. I have a great deal of experience in this area. I am an expert. I am most probably smarter than everyone of you. I solve these kinds of problems every day for large sums of money. I spend a lot of time studying and researching user experience and interaction with enterprise software systems. I know what engages users and what turns them away.
I would make a respectful request.I would like to maintain this thread for it's original purpose, to talk about increasing player base, not to talk trash.I understand why people get upset, especially if they feel attacked, and as Link said, text DOES NOT convey actual emotions.Please everyone, view this thread as a way to make Layo better, not criticize what has been done in the past.I have greatly enjoyed my years here, and it makes me cringe watching people bash the VOLUNTEERS that have kept me, and my son, and now my daughter, entertained for years.My Thanks,Merlin34
