No features this week
« on: January 23, 2014, 08:38:58 PM »

Hey, just a quick little heads-up. Despite my promises last week, there will not be an update this Friday.

The reason being that I just got a new apartment. I'm moving on Saturday so there's a lot of packing and preparation to do. With the already busy university and work schedule, there simply hasn't been enough time to work on NSM. Depending on how quickly I get settled to the new place and get my things sorted, there might be some kind of update next week. If not, I might have to take a couple of weeks off with the site features.

Sorry about that. At least the apartment has a two-year lease so this kind of disruptions shouldn't happen too often in the future.

Bah! Oh well. Everyone's got a life (er, most of us anyways). Congrats on your apartment but please don't keep us waiting too long!

At least you've given us two years to prepare for the next disappointment.

No! We will work you into the ground and make you regret ever running this site.

Not likely. But you get an award for optimism.

This is going to sound incredibly rude, and it probably is.

The biggest problem with this sort of thing, and new updaters, etc is that they all set expectations. Don't say you're going to do an update every 2 weeks, or a site fix every week, just because you have a couple weeks of free time. It will not last. You're being idealistic. If you're going to set an expectation, people will hold you to it. Just say you'll do your damn best and everyone should just be appreciative of what happens.

And honestly, with a site that runs on volunteers, that's all we naturally expect anyhow.

End random thoughts.

...how long have you been here? :P I'm surprised we even got two feature updates out of this. Jamaha's a busy dude.

That's fine that he's busy, but then he shouldn't say he's going to do something every week!

I'm not surprised. This sort of thing has been happening for years. I'm just tired of the fact that everyone makes these grand statements and then fails miserably.



Also when these things are internal, fine. But when it becomes site news that you're going to do something every week, do it. To the daily/weekly visitor to the site, this is extremely disappointing.

I totally agree.

And this doesn't just go for site updates and moderators, either. ::)

Pro tip: NEVER brag about or even announce something before it's finished.
