Thank you, it’s nice to see some people get what I mean instead of saying I’m a unlistening powermonger
More the players, more complicated it gets to listen to them all, or at least show them we do listen, because everyone has its little suggestion and we can only do so much.
You’re the one being hostile in the first place, I barely answered your witty question on the same tone.
We do take criticism, and all we do, we do it for the players. We take a lot of suggestions into consideration (oh look, we added the suggestion to have your mouse on the Login page like people wanted), but I guess it will never be enough for you. And even if we do listen, sometimes we have to fix things and do things people haven’t asked for, because they don’t realize it needs to be changed.
If you don’t support our way of doing, then by all means leave. This is the only way to make us listen, in your opinion, right?
Aaah see, this is the kind of borderline asks that do irk me.
I do what I feel (and WE do what we feel) because I can. This is our dream job before being a business, and if it’s for doing things against what we feel is right, might as well not do anything at all and go back to McDonalds.
"something not broken shouldn’t be changed" is not valid : if you’re talking about the login page, it had hundreds of reasons to be changed. And if we change something, it’s because we have good reasons to. The fact that you can’t see it doesn’t make it right.
The new developer will be devoted to Transformice exclusively. After some time, we hope he will be able to be as good as Tig and able to develop new features all on his own. Some people even know who he is, but I won’t spoil the surprise ! He’s coming in next week.
We would need more devs for Celousco too but don’t have the funds for it, so we gotta do with what we got
We actually have 300 000+ daily unique visitors but I get your point lol
Don’t worry too much, if I choose to answer a question, it means it doesn’t hurt me (unless I say so), the blatantly stupid and hurtful questions end up in the trash can.
Some questions might hurt but it doesn’t mean they should go unadressed. People genuinely worry about some decisions we take, and poorly phrase their feelings, but I think it’s important that I give my side of the story on some things, otherwise players only hear one side and end up believing it.
I’m proud of what I do, I don’t think people send hurtful questions because they’re jealous, but because they want to draw my attention. I don’t take most of them personnaly, only sometimes their comments hurt me because they don’t get what I wanted to do or they simply bash my work. But overall, it won’t keep me awake at night.
Thanks for the kind words
You can see almost all my favorite authors there :
Lots of Robin Hobb, Orson Scott Card, Dan Simmons, Isaac Asimov, Brandon Sanderson, Anne Mc Caffrey… Most of them sci-fi authors. The Mistborn Saga must be one of my all-time favorites.
For comics I enjoy Boulet, some mangas listed there etc
We still haven’t decided yet. Implementing microtransactions in these games will demand dev time and support, and we probably won’t do it if there aren’t enough players. For now it’s still wait and see.
I really can’t give a precise date :/ I’ve been to the hospital all week and I thought I could keep writing it, but turned out I had no internet whatsoever and couldn’t retreive the necessary info (plus being busy, y’know, being sick and going to the various appointements)
Don’t worry, it’ll come eventually, I just still have no idea how long it’ll take me.
