Lessons from the demise of another game?

#1
http://www.bloodfrontier.com/index.html

I really am not trying to say anything about xonotic in and of itself--hell, we are making progress like crazy--but I think it's valuable to look at what others have gone through and at least be aware of possible issues.

For one, I'm not sure I agree with his last point which sounds more like something out of the "cathedral" model as opposed to the "bazaar". Yes, not everyone will be happy, but our community ends up beings our devs in this case, as in hackers, modelers, mappers, etc, we can't exactly ignore them.
bye / bad luck and have boredom

Three quarters of his points are obvious the rest are wrong. The article as a whole is completely useless.

The thing about community members sounds about right, and wanting to voice opinions/tweaks, don't do it! :p

Oh. I think I have read 1/3 of this page. It's too much. Too much drama and sheeet. Like a soap opera. But I think some points might be useful for us. Like: use communication channels that do leave a trace of what have been there. And: make some plan and don't brak it just because someone has a better idea Big Grin Knowing where are we going would (will?) help us on our way.
