Quote from: GunHoMac on May 16, 2007, 09:21:10 AMThat's not the point. They don't base their game status information on the actual livelihood of the development. They base it on the awareness, promotability, and proximity to completion. The game itself has lost awareness do to a perceived lack of development by the outside community (even if it isn't true). Also, it doesn't seem to be promoted on the gaming forefront, so only people with prior knowledge are going to think about it on a weekly basis. The game has no explicity defined end, so to a gamesite based on showing game status...it looks like a canceled project. They won't remove it because they don't know that for sure, but I surely wouldn't expect them to change the status without something giving them good reason to do so besides "trust us...it'll get done".

Laptops, wireless cards, and remote access make where you are irrelevant to development. People will always find time and a way to get things done that they really want to get done. If you're relying solely on using your parents' computer hidden in the closet of their bedroom that you only get to use for 20 minutes before it explodes...you'd still find another way to get it done.
Quote from: Petra Rocks on May 18, 2007, 05:19:51 PM Mac is correct in that Cat's example does not fully match up to her point. Living with her parents does not inhibit her from working on TSL, nor does a limited amount of foruming time, by definition, mean a lack of time to work on TSL.
Quote from: Petra Rocks on May 18, 2007, 05:19:51 PMIt is further true that the higher a priority a person places on something, the more probable is it will get done, and that humans are capable of remarkable efforts and achievements in pursuit of something they greatly desire.
Quote from: Petra Rocks on May 18, 2007, 05:19:51 PMTeam members have other priorities than TSL, and thus spend the effort on other things. If you agree or do not agree with this prioritization is irrelevant. It is reality.
