I really dislike the tone you're setting @Braindawg. I mean, in the end we all want the best for the gameserver. Even I do.
Just a few facts that apply to Mr. Green (and myself) for the last 2 years or so:
- It barely makes any money. I put in more money a month than I get back from donations. Which is fine for now, it's just a hobby anyways.
- Because I have other stuff in life now I tried to put more control in the hands of the community itself (the 'Managers'). They basically decide about everything related to that gameserver. I have only veto'd small stuff a couple times.
- I'm fully aware I didn't do everything perfect. But all decisions have always been in the best interest of the community. And guess what. I'm just a person as well. People make bad calls from time to time. It's part of life.
"what compotent/caring community owner drives away the main dev for a gamemode by adding fucking microtransactions". I can't recall driving anyone away because I wanted micro-transactions. Actually, Duby was working on a whole new ZS, but I can't recall demanding 'GC support' before it getting released. I just asked/'demanded' that it would be a stable gamemode before replacing it with the old one.
tl;dr: Mr. Green didn't make millions. I'm fine with most ideas to improve the community. Just be realistic.
