Wow, have you ever had to do something like what Ace has been doing? He DOES have a full-time job and is married, so he's doing this on his own time in addition to balancing a work load and marriage.
ACE is having to take MIUI code and get it working on a device it wasn't written for specifically. In the case of what he was having issues with, it's not open-source. Apparently, the MIUI team owns it and doesn't release the source, so he is at their mercy right now. And, with this not being an official MIUI release (just like CM7 isn't an official Cyanogenmod release), Ace has to rely on others to help out and not the MIUI team. It's not like he HASN'T been working hard at this.
Seems a little ungrateful and it's that attitude that has caused other developers to leave XDA and not develop for Android phones.
I can understand if you paid him to deliver you something, but considering he's doing this and not charging us a penny for it (only asking for donations), could we show him some more respect?
Let's instead be grateful and thankful that he even got us a very functional and sustainable MIUI build.
Not trying to belittle you or anything, but the post just came across wrong. If you meant no harm by it, then I apologize, but I've seen too many developers scared away when people make comments like what you just did.
Just an FYI, Ash tweeted the following:
People, PLEASE be careful about what you say on how you feel about the progress of things. In this case, as you can see, this is a problem that even the Motorola Atrix has concerning the sound issue. So, Ace is doing all that he can.
Even though Ace doesn't post here anymore, I'm sure he still reads and is getting feedback from others. I know I've been tweeting him bugs and other issues.
So, please read over what you are about to post and think if it's something that were directed at you, would you like it? If not, it's probably not a good thing to send.
