Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC and remove Discord bridge

Removing the bridge is totally doable, but keeping it makes sense in a situation where most of the real time chat already happened on Discord before the bridge was created. A split community isn't beneficial to MT. It makes sense, I was refusing to accept the idea most of the people were on Discord...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

Majority of forks died except for Multicraft (Freeminer 2.0), want to know why? Because it's supported by core devs. Fair point Instead of helping each other, what are we doing? Again, personally speaking I'm helping too while complaining. And we're here, debating about things this guy or the other...

Also, yes, given the current situation, to me the best solution is a fork.
it doesn't invite features, it only separates the community further.
The community is separated already. Us, idiots, and them, people with power not giving a crap. Try to change that

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

It's not just the core dev's fault that this is happening. it's the entire community's fault (including the core devs) for failing to efficiently collaborate and understand one another. I don't agree. They're the ones who should start communicating in the first place. I didn't say a thing for month...

Re: New project managment proposal

That’s how a meritocracy works. You’re not selected as core artist and then do the work, you first do the work and then get selected as core artist because of what you did before. If this is about me specifically, I think I proved enough, but ok. And no, to be clear I'm not asking for any core role...

Re: New project managment proposal

They also handle special interests or expertise in a meritocratic way like it’s currently done in Minetest. I don't see any core artist even if a menu is apparently needed This is the reason for the absurdly high amount of issues and PRs. The reason is nobody takes the responsibility to say yes/no ...

Yep, but the important part is that you accept the idea and so also a working PR for it. There is already the "assign" function for that, the problem is that is not respected. See here And maybe even more important: Close Issues with unwanted ideas to make clear nobody works on this. Uhm, I don't t...

Yes, and now imagine single teams not communicating with each other. This is exactly what happens if you slap business administration nonsense on real-life situations.

Re: New project managment proposal

I said to split the aspects of MT in separate areas. Then you end up with one or two areas having all the devs and the majority of areas have no devs. Wait wait wait, I think there is a misunderstanding. Advertising, design, website, they don't involve core devs at all . The point is having a separ...

Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC and remove Discord bridge

Fine, before I start with philosophical topics nobody wants to hear about:

can we have a Matrix official blessing, providing an alternative to the ones coming from Discord with the hope they could approach free software, and also being consistent with the message behind Minetest?

[ ] Yes
[ ] No

Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC and remove Discord bridge

But you've been locking in already. The exact moment you (MT staff) said "let's bridge it", you made it official. If someone didn't want to use IRC for whatever reason, now they have a substitute. A substitute which has being widely used for years by anyone, inside and outside FOSS development (firs...

Just for the record, I said nothing about removing the Discord bridge!

Perhaps the title of the thread itself doesn't help in that regard, since its wording suggests the aim is to abandon IRC and move elsewhere, rather than maybe endorsing/incorporating other FOSS chat applications more officially.
Title changed, and I agree with everything you said
