My short (yes short , and I wrote the long one too, multiple times too) comment:
All it takes is realizing that people that complain are people
that are screaming to use/buy it again.
People that really don't like a product move away quickly and in silence.
There will also always be complainers, no matter what, but as said above it's actually a good thing.
To the complainers, suggestioners, opinionators, if you really feel adamantly that you are right and that IPACS is wrong or should listen. Well what right do you have to tell them anything? You're not responsible for their success or failure, so no responsibility, no decision power, that simple. Invest in IPACS (if they let you, their prerogative too), then we'll see.
If you're still adamant, create your own sim company, you will be ultra successful, especially when "everybody wants that feature".
And please don't state or claim, everyone plays this away, or everyone wants this or that, it ridiculous. It discredits yourself on the spot for your obvious attempt to justify what you want as what "everyone" wants.
You could also contribute and help makes things better by creating content.
To all, there is a cultural component to all this. this is a multi cultural forum and people come from all backgrounds and countries (cultures). Communication in forums is already a bit difficult to interpret, but when cultural biases (communication, actions, reactions, interpretations, and language barriers) come into play, it makes everything more edgy, please consider being tolerant of what you don't know and don't imagine, and don't always assume your cultural perception is the right one (saying or reading), and that your understanding of a particular fact or statement is correct, on all sides.
And I'm not trying to defend IPACS (not my responsibility or even desire). They upsetted me too (unwarranted censorship), they could do better in my (professional) opinion, but hey they are who they are, and I have no place to say anything, like the rest of us clients or observers. They lay their bed, they sleep in it. Their money, their fate, their strategy, their decisions, their consequences.
But let's face it
, in reality they've still done an
outstanding job so far, and with a great product, otherwise "we"
wouldn't be here discussing it, it's that simple.
Let's hope we'll get sling and lights sometimes, and maybe clouds
and water, something, better use or empowerment of third parties goodwill , and .... Anything is great as the alternative (nothing, product dying) would certainly not be "better", for anyone. But still, like everything, it has a natural life.
as I tried to post it told me that there was a "censored word" (now changed obviously), oh the irony.
