I for one would have loved to be very active in netgore for around 2 weeks now,
but as soon as school finished, other stuff came which kept me busy.
most of my time is practicing as our band has to entertain an entire wedding party and
we dont have near enough songs xD
I do have some time to look at .Net but I'm taking a while to get into this.
"actual OOP" and the entire .NET framework are very new things to me
we have clearly decided that we will use netgore "someday" for aleron,
and up until then everything but the coding will be beta-ready.
so basically the coders will be dragging behind anyone else on the team.
my feedback on when to release:
IF you release a beta, dont release it way to soon.
MY REGISTRATION DATE
it was WAY before i paid a 2. visit to the forums which was by accident and I saw
"wow this isnt that old small version!"
I personally dont care too much about site layout,
probably because im used to using the forums for anything.
but a regular site (INCLUDING a wiki and a forum) would probably be good.
and bake, we have a "list of active projects" in the wiki, but its very ineffective
