Quote from: Zylot on June 25, 2008, 10:37:52 amWhat I disagree with you on, Calico, is the idea of getting date. I think we've proven that getting dates does nothing.
Quote from: Zylot on June 25, 2008, 11:14:05 amI think you put way too much context into anything I say. I *again* state that I am not the authority on anything. My statement of knowing that a date won't help stems solely from the fact that we've had dates from planetside before that have yielded nothing. They came and went.This is why I proposed a much more interactive (IE, PS interacting with it's users to give them up-to-date info) way of showing us how far along the process is and when we'll likely see a release. Instead of some shimmering object in the distance, we have a path to walk along (so to speak).I'd like to hear your ideas on that, the bulk of my previous post, as opposed to just another attack on my charatcer based on one line in the whole post taken way out of context.Maybe instead of asking for yet another release date, we should *all* work together tog et something more concrete so we don't feel so lef tin the dark.

Quote from: calico on June 25, 2008, 11:01:20 amUnless you're a programmer and have the data to show otherwise, your statement isn't accurate. Actually, dates are critical for any project.
QuoteIf we were to give a release date, to be truly "safe" it would have to be much further in the future than would really bring anyone comfort anyway. I think it's clear from past history that specifying dates just doesn't work and doesn't make anyone happier for long.
Quote from: Oshyan on June 25, 2008, 02:44:46 pmIt's not that we expect to be unaccountable, nor that we don't have a sense of the time pressure here - believe me we are well aware of that. It is simply that we are working as hard as we can and the release will be available as soon as it can, and trying to say publicly when we think that will be has clearly not worked well in the past. That is simply an unfortunate reality. When it is certain that release is imminent we can safely announce it and avoid breaking promises, and I think that is in everyone's best interest.- Oshyan

Where exactly did they say this?
