I am writing this here as a favor to those not normally able to post in the Lounge, so everyone can participate in this discussion.
For those unaware: @dashingdon out of his own pocket, time and effort has made a free hosting site that many of us (including myself) utilize. This was done in May of 2015, because the normal methods of sharing demos was being taken away from us.
His service was and is a life-saver for many of our games and projects.
He does this out of kindness, and he does this without asking much in return.
Right now he does not have a lot of time to give to the service, but he is well aware of the issues everyone is experiencing.
I’ve noticed lately a lot of entitled community members say things that are uncalled for.
People, who do not even understand what is going on are demanding a lot of selfish things… all from a guy doing this out of kindness.
Why do people act like such entitled jerks when their demo loads slowly, or they experience lag when switching pages?
Do people here feel so entitled that they can throw out garbage in their posts and hurt those who are volunteering their time, their resources and doing all this thanklessly?
Before you start raging at moderators here or start badmouthing dashingdon, remember just what is being done for you.
I am sorry that a ton of @Seraphinite’s fans are overwhelming the service — that is what happens when a lot of people try to visit the same site at the same time.
This happens elsewhere too – @Jender reported the same thing happening on Patreon earlier… did you all make nasty posts on Patreon too?
Please think before posting. In the future, there might be suspensions issued.
Thank you for suggesting I do this, Eric.
