I think c242 is honest and fed up....and I'm not too far behind.
I'm seeing/hearing this more often than I like... with people moving on and the forums getting quieter and quieter... 'tis almost like a graveyard at times. So many old timers and forum regulars have departed, and quite a few of the newbies don't seem to hang around long anymore, so yeah, activity levels are on the decline and that's sad. Eventually people will find no need or encouragement to purchase or renew subscriptions and the site will just fold... which may be the plan, given that games development is/has become so lucrative.
I hope that's not the case and that Stardock will continue to support Wincustomize and the customisation community. After all, customisation was its bread and butter prior to its foray into gaming, and there are millions of customers who have remained loyal no matter what, so I sincerely hope that Stardock believes it has a commitment to those people... myself included.
While I've not experienced too many problems myself, either with the site or the software, I do believe C242 has made some valid points, particularly with regard to ObjectDock 2. I purchased OD2 with the belief that development was ongoing and that features missing from OD1 would be added in the very near future, but that has not been the case. In fact, I have reverted back to OD1 Plus to retain the features I need/enjoy using: eg, flyout menus.
Now while it is not imperative that I have these features, I do notice that others have complained about the lack of updates to Rightclick and other apps as well as OD2, so yes, there is a need for Stardock to prioritise these apps and take them off the back burner, not necessarily for myself, but for all those customers who invested their money based on assurances of updates and ongoing development.
The other thing that would be nice... a fully functional site with a bit of speed. While there have been some cosmetic changes, there have been few improvements under the hood with regard to reliability and slow page changes. I don't experience these issues very often, but they are annoying when I do... so I can imagine the frustration and anger of those who experience them regularly... all the time. So please, Stardock, how about popping the hood a doing a few fixes there... after all, WC is your showcase as well as our meeting place.
