Update?

Post by yawg07 » Wed Apr 25, 2007 9:35 pm

Do you think there will ever be another update to the actual site?
I loved the old site, and I love how the new one has such HUGE pics.

But ... why has it stopped? There hasn't been an update in months :'-(

If you remember, Ralph discussed the need to concentrate on his profession, and noted the likelihood that the updates would slow for a while. Hopefully his transition from student to professional is going well, and he will be able to return to the updating process, or at least be able to delegate it.

No updates of any kind in 3 months. No personal posts in 30+ days. Doesn't look too good to me. I wish he hadn't spent all that time focusing on bar codes.

If he doesn't post for 120+ days then I'll start to worry. Until then, my guess is that he wants to make sure he gets off to a great start in his new job. Remember that Ralph is something of a perfectionist. If he starts concentrating on the needs of this site, he may be distracted for days, if not weeks.

NO!

Ralph is going to update the site as soon as he can. But life is hard an there will be much more challenges as working on a fan website.
Predicting the end of the page only because the webmaster concentrates on much more importatn things is crazy in my opinion.

Nevertheless he should give work to other guys with more time. Not to update the page alone but reducing Ralph's expenditure of time is a good goal. Isn't it?

Hi.
If Ralph will answer questions himself instead of others Members,I believe it will be Greatly appreciated,life can be hard(I know about it)but a minimum of communication at least is such an hard task ?

Although I'm in contact to Ralph irregularly it's often enought to estimate his situation. Don't speculate about the end of the page and trust more in Ralph's
ambition continueing his project.

If you're unhappy with some aspect of this site, you can always start your own rarities site up. There's gotta be some way of doing that without stepping on this sites' toes.

i think you are misinterpreting terrafrost's post. i don't think it is directed at ralph at all. i think he is politely trying to tell the people who are unhappy about the lack of updates that it is not so easy to maintain a site of this scope so show a little patience.

practice peace
