The more users start to approach QLC+, the more the forum is getting messy. Most of it because
people don't read the forum guidelines, and don't provide the necessary details for who reads the post
to understand the issue and therefore give help.
So today I have created 15 new forum categories, trying to guide users to the appropriate section and
create some order out of chaos, with the hope to implicitely provide some basic information.
I renamed the huge "Issue, feedbacks and ideas" forum into "Archive" and no more new threads are to be
Now please allow me a few remarks. Sometimes I can be caustic, I know that, but after 3 years of QLC+,
I think I have seen the worst out of people.
Aside from maintaining QLC+ 4, developing QLC+ 5, improving the Raspberry Pi image, maintaining the website,
producing video tutorials and documentation and studying new techonologies for the project,
I am also a moderator of the forums, and whether you like it or not, there are rules to follow.
I become nasty when someone clearly ignores them, and then claims to be right when I make them noticing it.
Some come to the forum with the answers in their pockets, or saying "I have 30 years of experience" or
"I am a project manager". You can even be the Pope, but I truly don't care.
When you want to be part of a community, you come with humility and moreover after you have understood
that the QLC+ project is carried on by the spare time of volounteers, and not by a company.
You will never hear me saying QLC+ is perfect, but that's not an excuse not to respect what has been done so far.
The more openness this project has, the more people will abuse it. That's the opinion I ended up having,
based on several facts I observed during the years.
There was a time my personal email address was public in this website. And I had to remove it because people abused it.
Quite frequently I receive requests of contact from every corner of the internet, on every possible
"social" channel. I receive emails in every language, especially from italian people, who are the first I will ignore.
Please stop. We're not mates. This project is not only me. Use the forum and you will
find out that a) you will learn the english language and b) you will probably find nice people that will help you.
In private, I accept only requests of contact from serious people, who wants to contribute to QLC+ or have
interesting projects in mind that require my advise.
In conclusion, the positive aspect of this writing of mine, is that I am upset cause I still care about this
project. When I will not care anymore of people's ignorance, most likely this project will be dead.
