Quote from: robertk2I'm sure those THREE people who won loved their prizes. I hope that THREE people enjoy the game too. TongueI'm not trying to be a jerk. I just think some more updates are in order. Not one big update, but regular updates that keep us coming back to keep checking out whats new. But this discussion has gone on way to long, I've got better things to do. I'm sure I'll enjoy the game if/whenver it comes out.PS: I think all the back talk that comes from moderators/team members whenever release dates are inquired about is dumb. You guys wanna put your selfs out like a quasi-"professional" group? Then expect professional standards from the community. If you wanna be seen like an amature group of volunteers, that's fine, we'll expect an amature product. See how it goes?
Quote from: koko_99_2001As for the release of screenshots...well, all I can say is you might want to start participating in the contests we are holding (last month was a Book Title contest, this month is a Smiley Contest). There are prizes involved, and I'm sure the three winners from last month's contest will say they liked the prize
Quote from: koko_99_2001Dew, by asking repeatedly for a release date is NOT going to get you one...especially several times in different threads. In fact, instead of getting us to come up with a release date, it is annoying. When there is a release date that we are confident about, we will let the fans know.
QuoteIf you do not care about the community, checking the site frequently is a waste of time. You can get major updates directed to your email inbox, others here can tell you how. Personally, I recommend you do so and then try to forget about TSL. The email will remind you at the proper time. That is my personal advice to you, not because I think it would be a bad thing if POS were to give more progress reports, but because I doubt you will get them no matter how you beg and plea, demand, threaten or whatever. Thus, it will simply save you some angst and Say* some annoyance if you stop and forget about it until your email reminds you.
Quote from: NemelChelovek on May 21, 2007, 04:54:17 AMI was really, really happy when this game got un-canceled and I found out it was going to actually happen again. This was over a year ago. In that time, we (the people who want to play it) have seen, game-wise a demo we were soon told was already out of date and two new screenshots. We've gotten very sporadic journal updates about progress, the most recent of which told us only that the developers have lives and that the team is really awesome. When someone asks if the team could release updates on progress, new screenshots, or some small tidbit, the only response I've seen is that the team all have personal lives and that we can't expect them to drop everything to please us. This approach has all but killed my interest in the project, and whenever I think about the project it's in a "what-might-have-been" way. I thought I was the only one, but looking around I'm starting to see there are more people who feel the same way. I'm not trying to insult anyone. All I'm saying is that it doesn't make much sense for a company, even one not working for money, to advertise a product and then tell interested potential consumers to be more considerate of the staff's needs when they ask to know more about said product. If the public stays as in the dark as it has been about The Silver Lining, eventually there won't be much of a public willing to ask about it.

At the end of the new contest, why not release the old contest's prize screenshot to the public? That way the winner of each contest can feel like they've gotten something special (being able to see a screenshot/progress a month or so before the public), and then a month or so later, the public gets to see a bit of progress as well.
