Like the thread title says. Is anyone else sick of all this crap?
I've been a XOOPS user and a forum member since 2003. Over that time i've seen a lot of ups and downs in the project, people coming and going, and some coming and going more than once. But lately I can't believe what i'm seeing. I'm sick of all the ego trips, character assassination, lies, half-truths, accusations, misinformation, self-promotion, and all the plain crap. I'm not naming names, there's a lot of you, and you all know who you are.
I wasn't going to say anything, but I really don't want to see something i've invested so much of my time in go down the toilet.T here's a lot of very talented people here wasting their time with this crap instead of making XOOPS better. I'm just wondering how many other users are sick of it all, and how many former users that have just disappeared because of it.
It's time for some righteous indignation on the part of those of us who humbly TRY to help the program along, and who want to approach the XOOPS CMS in a more professional way. It's time for us to call for an ELECTED group to run the XOOPS program, and for ACCOUNTABILITY to be the word of the day.
I fear we'll never see it. I hope we will, but I'm betting we won't.
I believe that XOOPS is dead unless it can put together a cognizant plan for going forward in the future. We need leadership. We need organization. We need persistence and understanding. We need to renew our sense of community.
So, I'm committed... who else is committed with me?
I am committed...
and here is the proof...
I put my wiki work where my mouth is...
I don't think ADDON's and XOOPSWIKI.org is willing to do that. (I know xoopsinfo isn't, the people over there have been advertising - no longer active on xoops.org for a long time now. -- pre DJ I might add)
I believe if they want to bring it over to xoops.org we can find a place for it...
