I have been wondering but didn't want to be the one to ask...
in due time we will get the results. till then we are all waiting patiently.
I think rolando likes to build the suspense to make it more fun and interesting. (kinda like the "making an entrance" rule when showing up to parties and stuff.)
If we all found out right away than what would there be to look forward to now.


p.s. I am dying to know what's going on, too.

I know my opinion doesnt matter much but it seems to me that the powers to be dont really care much about this site anymore. It hasnt worked well from the beginning. There is only so many times that "we are working on it " will suffice.The same 4 messages are on the front page and have been for weeks thats boring.The recent thread thing is a joke.I am very dissapointed. I know everyone says keep working on it and you will learn but thats not why i joined .I wanted to enjoy and learn not work to figure out a website .

Try to be understanding. I know that it is hard to be patient with a site that you subscribe to, but I am sure you have read some of rolando's posts recently. He has been very busy (doing the things his career demands of him, traveling,etc) he also has a family. It is not that they dont care about this website, but on the list of priorities the site gets pushed to the backburner when more important things come up.
The way I look at it---is that this is something extra that someone with a busy life has taken on to keep us happy. I come hear for networking, learning opportunities and just for entertainment (to look at new images, talk and play tetris) we get all of those things, with or without rolando putting his life on hold for us.

I know it takes me about an hour a day to get through all my email (let alone reply to any of it.) I can only imagine how much time it takes to sit down and go through rolandos email/pm's. poor guy.

I have learned that nothing good comes fast! ever.
*in yoda voice* be patient my young padwan.

I'd say what I really feel and how to fix things, but if I did that might give away my real job and cause hardships on others. So for now, at least, I'll just have to keep a low profile while I carry-on with my other tasks. But rest assured that I am aware of the situation here, and time/events permitting something will happen. YMMV

i have no doubt that, originally, GG/G1 was something of a 'labor of love' for rolando & company. today, however, it has become a 'labor of business' moreso than love. nothing wrong with that. but as such, business is about customer satisfaction. when that deteriorates, it's not good business.

i come here for much the same reasons. (minus the tetris playing.) also, because i have something to say about this thing we do and this is a place where i can say it amongst peers with common interests. but that doesn't mean i should have to work harder to say what i have to say and/or to appreciate others' work and thoughts.
