I'm going to answer Ramuk, as it's his post. (and he's got nicer teeth than me!)
I am unclear what is going on. I came here to hack my Linkstation. I think it is noble to share information but I don't feel the need to support everyone else's community, or create it for them. Let them do it on thier own. If they want help that's great.
I do agree somewhat, I (as many others here) have been here a while, and originally came to stream my music!! I have no doubt that very talanted individuals will do great things with other boxes, but I don't have one of those so I'm not that interested.
I know that ARM-kernel issues are complicated, but it seems like things are occuring OFF-wiki in mailing lists and hush-hush. Am I wrong? or misinformed?
From what I've read (which isn't alot) people are trying hard to get things recognised
I don't want to hack everyone else's device, just mine. I am happy to join other communities if I can help or I get one of their devices, but I don't see a need to form everyone's communities for them, and maintain them.
It's certainly ambitious, and I'm not sure necessararily needed, but can/will we make use of other communitys resources
I joined and contributed because this community helped me hack my LS and I was hoping that they would help me to do new and cool things with my Kuro-Pro that I might not have the expertise to do on my own. Now it seems like there is an unnercurrent of profiteering going on that I cannot see or understand. What is going on?
I'm too drunk to make sense of that, but I don't think any profiteering has occured
I still want to participate in the LinkStation wiki. and The KuroWiki I OWN both of these devices, I feel like people here can help me with them, and that I can help some people with them. I am happy to help someone else if they ask, but I don't want to hack other devices.
I know exactly where you're at.
Am I the only one that feels this way?
I don't think you are.
But, at the end of the day, I know there are alot of people that have made/make this a great site, but fenderbender does (in my opion) spend too much time on making it better. And should therefor bare full responsibility for his actions!!
I think we need keep our individuality This is where we are, and this is what we do. Others may say the same, then let them amalgamarise with us (if they like)
Now, can someone pull the splinters out, this fence is hurting my arse
