They mainly just don't agree with how XDA runs things, you can read more about DU on Dev's Base, stuff like that. That's where they post stuff.

Almost, read this.

This is a Quote from a Post.

Back in early September of 2016 there was a situation between a friend of mines and XDA. This friend’s name is Nate Benis or better known as Beanstown106. Nate or should I say “Beans” as I call him was upset that a individual had taken his work and posted it on XDA prior to him releasing his official build. He really got upset. This was probably the first time that I had seen Beans upset in public. He normally keeps his thoughts private and so I was surprised. He pulled his source off github and took to G+ to call this guy out.

So what do you think about it?

Not much. Alex didn't like XDA's direction, which seems fair. Creates new site to recreate what once was, admin gets upset, escalates things. Too much drama for me.

I wholeheartedly agree with the "glorified tech support" thing though. It seems most people here can't even pull up proper logs when they have issues. "issue here plz fix o kind dev."

I think XDA has become more of a tech site instead of an actual developer website, albeit developers still post here. If you look at Dev's Base, it doesn't have the completely off topic posts that XDA does. Not saying its a bad thing that XDA does, it just seems Dev's base is a dev site not a tech site.

Stop discussing this, read the beginning of the thread. No discussion. You can go to their G+ for that. Mods should close thread.

Dude bugger off. They don't care if we discuss it. As long as no links to downloads are posted here. Look below a few threads and you'll see a discussion about DU that was active over a year. Never got shutdown cause it didn't violate any rules. I don't know why we needed a new thread though.

Stop trying to act all hard. Noob

Sorry if I came across harsh, and discussion is allowed. Just don't see the point of doing it here, when you could get responses from people who actually develop this ROM over on their G+. That's what I really meant, don't see point in this thread. Discussing it is allowed.

IDK, the large majority of Dev's Base seems to not be there for "tech" stuff. Considering the current lead of the site, I doubt it will change either. Its possible though.

It's only possible to keep the site that way if it remains small or if they ban every new user that doesn't know enough.

Looking at their G+ page and at what some DU users ask here on XDA, it's clear not everyone is a genius. Allow normal users to create accounts and install your fancy ROM and then you have a typical XDA thread with dumb questions.
