Trax in Space has become really stagnant in terms of development. In fact, Saurin has been pretty rare lately. I wish I knew what the heck he was thinking, because he's got a great site on his hands that needs help, and he's just not willing to do anything about it, either by doing the required work himself or delegating it out to people who can help.
It's gotten so bad, I've finally decided to voice my concern
publicly. It's been met with overwhelmingly positive response by the community, which tells me I'm not the only one who sees the problems with the site and its present management.
Don't get me wrong here. I think very highly of Saurin and can respect that he has a busy life. But he's created a site that people love, but has massive problems, and hasn't taken the time to do anything about it. People are frustrated, and this has showed in the fact that song uploads are well less than half of what they were two months ago.
If I were him, I'd open up development to the community. Saurin can still manage what needs to be done on the site, but he needs help actually getting these things done. I'm all for setting up a trac
for purposes of both organizing developers and tracking issues with the website, and granting SVN access to those interested in actually doing the work on the site.
Why he doesn't do this is beyond me. He HAS to recognize that he can't take care of TiS2 like he did TiS1. I have no clue what he's waiting for.
