Before you make a feature request, consider if it's possible that you could implement the feature yourself. Otherwise, please don't make the request.
Since no one else is stepping up, when you make a feature request, you are asking me to perform unpaid labour for you. This seems very much contradictory to the almost-romantic relationship many here have to free software, where one of the big benefits touted is that whoever is in possession of the software may improve upon it. And yet, other than translations, I see precious little of outside contributions--only a handful of people have touched the actual code.
Up until now, I've done my utmost to try and meet peoples' wishes, but in the long run it's alienating to keep giving and never receiving anything in return. The backlog of bugs to fix, improvements to make, and features to implement keeps growing. My calls for help with Postmill consistently go unanswered. People who promise to help out never get in touch with me again.
I ask that admins reword the sidebar to remove mention of 'features' and 'Postmill' in the same sentence. Thanks, whoever did this. I also won't take new feature requests on the issue tracker, unless they pertain to moderation tools.
P.S. For those interested in helping out, I ask that you come up with ways to improve the navigation bar with the 'hot/new/top/etc...' buttons. Otherwise, the front page will break mobile forever.
Thank you for your work emma. I wish i could help., but I'm not good with PHP. I'm working every day without exception on Konsent, though, which can hopefully soon blend with the community here.
I don't think the issue is that people don't want to help; most just don't have what it takes. I really hope you don't burn out. If you're losing faith in the project, perhaps you should just take a long break until you're ready again. If you don't, you'll probably come to hate it and never be able to enjoy working on it again.
