How often is the the site updated?
« on: April 26, 2007, 05:30:21 PM »
I haven't been around too long, bit I'm noticing that these journal entries usually come every few months.  It would be nice to know that there is still someone alive on the other side ya know?

I've noticed the trend or updating the journal about 3 months after each entry.  However, it is disconcerting that there hasn't been one of the regular 1-per-3-month update for a few weeks now...

Everyone, including project director to every single staffer I know seems to be insanely busy working very hard on their deadlines. There might be surprises coming along once final milestones are all done, that does mean including final legal approval on release.

Nothing else to say, we're still working (harder than ever) and hopefully we will make announcements whenever possible.

sooo...
I officially feel like the forum's official whiner, but it has been 6 months since the last update, which is worrisome
At the very least, let us know if you're planning a big update, so that I can be there for it.  but seriously, at least a journal entry? PLEEEEASE?

Hope that helps a little :)

Come on Koko, :-\
 you have to admit that it's been a pretty long time since there was any site updates. And to find the Contest Prize you have to look on the forums, so wouldn't it be more of a "forum update" than an actuall site update?

Regardless, it's a game media update. :P

yeah, a game media update that was probably sitting around for a year before being released, not to mention that it took six months just for that. :P

lol, I love how pessimistic people want to be. We did give an update :) Maybe it wasn't exactly what you were hoping for, but it's an update, none-the-less :)

You seem like more of a TSL-pessemist than a KQ-fan to me. I think that the contest prize was SO much more than I thought it would be. I am actually not a huge fan of screenshot after screenshot, the music in this game is fantastic. I was expecting a screenshot, and instead got a beautiful comospition. (Not to diss any screenshots, for I do love them dearly, but to me they aren't a huge "update") :P

Hey I love the music too, but I just think that having 1 musical composition in 6 months time, not to mention that a music composition is really no sign of "true" progress, is really not that much at all to go by. But what I truly think is funny, koko and awesomeasapossum, is that you did exactly what I said people did when they post less than positive comments :suffer:( both of you read my post, I wrote it about a month ago, its under New Screenshots thread and the #63 reply,you'll see what I mean.)
(now in that post I used the word "development" but the same can be applied for updates)
My point is that we have gotten absolutely 0 updates from anyone besides Web moderators in the past six months and I can't help but ask myself "Do we really have to wait half a year just to get a little media from a moderator? Can't the "actual" site be updated with new content from the TSL team rather than just another link on the forum?"
but that leads me to one last question: This one is for Yonkey, so if your reading this please respond, "Is it hard to have website updates?, I mean is their a genuine reason why they haven't been updated in awhile? Is the team just trying to save time and energy by not updating it?  ???
I've done a bit of website creation and I know how complecated it can get. :-\

koko, awesomeasapossum.. pls dont pass judgements on kk fan007 or other 'people.'

It really says something when you label them as pessimistic off the back.. c'mon now! You should know better.

kq fan 007 is a fan, he just wants an actual game progression update, not some distraction contest, which what it really is supposed to be... it is NOT an update about how the game is coming along.

and those 'screenshots' koko mentions... it WAS an update...... 9 months ago! 

Stop spinning things... face the facts.. no genuine update has been given.  I read quite a few posts from people expressing anxiety..  that is NOT pessimism,  that is ENTHUSIASM.

Don't tell me when you are told by your partner one day "Hey hon, I have a surprise for you! But I won't tell you what it is over the phone, I will give it to you later when we see each other."

Time passes.. you grow anxious.. you want to know what the surprise is, but you wait patiently pretending nothing is fazing you... but you know you are going nuts inside.

Then when you get home, your partner explains "The surprise I have isn't ready for you, but I can tell you you have always wanted it"

A few months pass, "yea that surprise I promised... here's a picture of it if it was seen from a 4th dimension"

9 months later..     you say "wtf?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"

lol... I think you get what I am trying to say. People are excited about the game, not Pessimistic!

And if anything.. to say a content, aka distraction, is a genuine update is to deliberately misrepresent the truth.. and I find THAT to be rather obnoxious, not the anxiety people share here that you interpret to be 'pessimism'

nuff' said!

Well, let's get a couple facts straight first.  The last update was not 6 or 9 months ago.  It was 5 days ago, and prior to that it was 2 months ago in June.  The people that participate in contests got to see these updates even sooner. 8)

So, if you truly are enthusiastic about the game, you could try showing it better by participating in the monthly contests we run.  If you don't want to do that, then you'll just have to have patience. :)

*agrees with Neil* And also, you can tell by reading people's posts whether they're optimistic or pessimistic. I wasn't labeling one person in particular, but saying overall, there are quite a few pessimistic people out there :)

Oh, and Neil, I THINK we had another update back in July as well. I'm thinking we've released the last three months of prizes. Of course, since I've moved four times in three months...my months are a bit mixed up ;)

You seem like more of a TSL-pessemist than a KQ-fan to me.
Oddly enough, I find devoted people trolling others who say something that could possibly be misinterpreted as pessimism, worse than actual trolls.

Come on koko and yonkey think for a minute here :P, I been reading posts from other forumers and they think the same way. WE HAVEN"T HAD ANY ACTUAL PROGRESS UPDATES. I don't know what I have to say to make you two realize this. I feel like both of you have just covered your ears and started yelling. "YOUR WRONG!, WE HAVE UPDATES!, WE HAVE UPDATES!, WE HAVE UPDATES!, WE HAVE UPDATES!", despite what everyone else is saying. So if you want to call music and pictures updates then let me rephrase my question "Where are the progress updates?" But whenever someone asks this question they get the moderators most favorite answers: "You know that if we gave you lots of updates it would spoil the game for you and we wouldn't want that :)" or "If we gave a release date something would come up and we would have to change it so we won't give you one :)" or my personal favorite " Would you rather have the game come out sooner or have a couple of more updates :)" Well I can answer all three of those replies 1. People don't need to hear the plotline or see 101 game screens, all they want to here is "We had a really good week, we got alot done" or "We were pretty busy so not much was done this week" what I wish they would do would be to just give us a percentage like" well we're 85% done so far" 2. I read gunhomac's post and I think it pretty much answered this reply, we need a release date so at the very least it can put the game on a bit of a timetable. 3. Updates would not take anytime at all from the developers despite what other people say, all they could do would be to make a thread on the forums where everyone on the team would take maybe 1 minute each week and write a little something about how much progress they made this week.
*agrees with Neil* And also, you can tell by reading people's posts whether they're optimistic or pessimistic. I wasn't labeling one person in particular, but saying overall, there are quite a few pessimistic people out there :)
I think it's ridiculus to call people pessimistic when they realize that 3 pictures and 1 music clip in 6 months isn't alot.
Well, let's get a couple facts straight first.  The last update was not 6 or 9 months ago.  It was 5 days ago, and prior to that it was 2 months ago in June.  The people that participate in contests got to see these updates even sooner. 8)
Yes Yonkey, the last non-photo/music update when someone on the TSL team actually spoke was 6 months ago.
So, if you truly are enthusiastic about the game, you could try showing it better by participating in the monthly contests we run.  If you don't want to do that, then you'll just have to have patience. :)
So Yonkey your saying that we have to work to get even a meager update?

But all in all what really frustrates me is not the lack of updates, but the reason why there has been a lack of updates, I've spent the whole day thinking about this but I cannot think of one good reason why TSL isn't doing better with updates. Can anyone tell me why? ???
