Here I am again... I resisted posting today. Give my fingers a rest. Do other things but I can't resist a good baiting.
First off I concur this was a fun and unusual heist. Grand actually.
What I don't like are those who ask questions or demand the answers when all they have to do is read above where they want to post.
I agree also with 'pmenair' he makes great points which leads me to this idea for the Directorate: Place a header that pops up in every thread that deals with the Heist itself that states to please scan/read the postings before asking any questions.
As for people who post findings, clues, answers a bunch... I agree with Bob, everyone making headway wants to post and a few of us heisters are a little more quick with some of the heists and we race to post our findings and we get a deluge.
But for me... that doesn't bother me as much as those who ask what does this mean or look what I found what does it mean?, when both are already in many posts above theirs.
maerlynne is also right... some of us who visit are to lazy. Is that alright? Sure.
This is a game that is fun and a community with alot of cool Mac Heads in it.
And if some just want to drop by get the info, never post and download the apps or just come ask questions that have been overly answered then download and leave until they remember to check for the next heist... that's fine.
Then there are some of us who for some reason want to take part in this whole shebang... and play along. and that is fine as well.
The real point here is simple: to put apps into play so the developers can get better known, grow and we as users can find out things we might not have known about.
What if you have no use at all for an app you get here or on MAAD... well why not at least check out the developer... maybe they have another app you would like.
Also if some of these apps can't be upgraded without a upgrade purchase, well if you are using it, then pay for it.
Now I like free apps. FREE is great... but at the same time money, sweat, hours, ideas and other stuff go into creating these apps and we shouldn't expect them to always be free because we somehow deserve it. That said... Yes I will take Mac app for free of course and then if I use it and like it and I have to pay for a newer release I can make a choice at that time.... and if not well I still have the app and it's working. These apps are not demos. Just like on MAAD they won't be demos.
If the apps here and on MAAD were demos this whole thing would be silly and I would say just subscribe to MacAddict or if you are in Great Britain MacWorld which is a better mag there than here.
Wow... Did I go off or what... But then I am a Dad and I own my own company so I sometimes feel the need to speak out.
Sue me.... LOL. After all these are just my opinion and in the immoral words of Dennis Miller: I could be wrong.
