In Topic: Forum Is its time up?

6 days ago

If you're a mod here you're allowed to have your own opinion - we don't force an opinion on our mods. They do a fantastic job, and we are extremely grateful for what they do. The forum is toxic of late, and we totally understand why. Neither myself or Fraser have any control over when the R1 update is out, nor do we have control over any news on that subject.
 
There is cooperation between the Netduma team and the mods behind the scenes, so we don't totally leave them to their own devices. I'm confident that once that update is out for the R1 you'll see a revival of this forum and everything will begin to get back on track. Don't worry too much Macca - the community is weaker than it was before, but soon it will be stronger than it ever was.


That's great to hear Jack, the thorn in the side has been the complete lack of communication and the moderators have been left to face the crap.There used to be suggestions for competitions, possible meet ups, secret santas etc which were good fun. I know you have to have participants for these "extras" if you like and its down to forum members to join in, but I believe that the severe delay on the DumaOS has had a very negative effect on the forum members, myself included.

Jack you alluded to the the issue of the update being released, I think EVERYONE is waiting for some sort of news, and I agree the forum probably be a much healthier place......... But waiting's a bitch!

I don't think there is anything to achieve posting about the OS delay
I think every argument possible has been put forward and STILL nothing has come from the Duma team. The silence is deafening, the time of the delay announcement was inexcusable, but no amount of posting is going to change the fact that is has not been released, is not likely to be released on this version of the Duma.

I far one, and I speak for myself, am not , and will not lose any sleep over it. For you guys that bought the Duma on the promise of an upgrade etc I can understand your annoyance, anger and frustration over the situation.

But it has not made ANY difference at All and we have 33 pages of nothing! Once the announcement was made the Duma team wound their necks in and battened down the hatches and have not yet come out of the bunkers.
Except to put their nice new OS on the XR500.......... :)

The more I look over Netdumas twitter page the more I think that update about something big wasn't for the R1 at all. 
The only mention of the R1 seems to be people asking when is it going to be ready.
They sure seem to talk about the XR500 and how great it is. 
 
Not so much about the R1. Maybe the silence is a hint.


I love conspiracy theories! I agree the silence is deafening,

Conspiracy theory 1 maybe the Netgear hierarchy told Netduma "You can't give the OS for free when our customers have to pay for it"
Conspiracy theory 2 "Netgear "If you delay the roll out of the OS, the Duma customers will get pissed of with waiting and buy the XR 500 and we will give you a cut of the sales".
Conspiracy theory 3. Duma "We can't the OS to work on the Duma, backwards compatibility is not going to work. Blame the lawyers! :)

I am thinking that, quote from Hamlet "There's something wrong in the state of Denmark" lots of conspiracies in Hamlet! :)
