New Year's Resolution

Post by rbytes » Sun Jan 06, 2019 2:48 am

I just realized that by posting my programs so often, I may be discouraging other, perhaps more recent, Forum members from posting their ideas. So I resolve to cut back my contributions this year and give others a chance to post their programs.

I hereby resolve to post a program this year only after at least two other members have posted theirs. Maybe then we can get back to what this section was intended for - a sharing of program contributions by all.

I hope that won't result in this section grinding to a halt. But look at the five most recent posts and their dates, and you'll see why I have made this resolution.

That does not increase the chance that others will make a contribution.
On the contrary, contributions are often based on new ideas that are shown in posted programs.
My recent contributions were dedicated to your iConvert program. Numerous other examples can be found.
This decision will lower viability. Unfortunately.

I respect your opinion, Ton, because you and I are virtually the only Forum members remaining who still publish new programs regularly.

I'm far from certain that my resolution will motivate the members who rarely or never contribute. But if the viewing information on this site is even halfway accurate, there are quite a few of them visiting here who rarely or never share their own creations.

If this continues, we might just as well exchange our code privately via email as we have already done.

What I miss most is the admiration, the cheering, the laudatory words and the grateful reactions. :lol:

When you post programs, I will make sure that you get such reactions from me! 8-)
