we all started this project for fun, when pixelpunk created pixelpost it was because there wasnt anything like it out there, and we all just loved helping out. this isnt some super awesome wordpress like organization with a serious business mindset...yes we try to keep it on a remotely professional level, but we're not in it for that level of things...we love photography and pixelposts helps us share that. if we cant meet someones needs or expectations then there is nothing we can do about that. it's a fun atmosphere, we spend hours on end helping people setup blogs and talking about photography, and in our spare time outside life and that pixelpost takes it's form...this is our process and we depend on people to give feedback.
we've had a run of luck on this forum, i moderate in 4 other large communities, and this is one of the first heated debates we've had here. it's not a bad thing though so i urge everyone to just take a deep breathe and be chill about it. we're all here for the same reason, and pixelposts code isnt perfect. but with each thing we do together it gets closer and closer to what a userbase demands out of it.
i've thought about a revamp for the comments system for a while, a bbcode or markdown editor system would be nice for the future, but in truth outside a linkback tot he commenter, who needs the rest of those things in a comment anyway?
i should say more clever stuff
