1 and 3 i can't answer, you'll have to ask the dms team :POriginally posted by jdog006
1. People would not flood the forums asking "when will it be out????" If they hadn't told us it would be released on a certain date which never happened.
2. If the 2 mods on the site aren't team members how are they "completing the flash"?
3. The only reason people bitch when DMS says they are going to release a flash is because they never stick to a date that they make public.
I know you are a respected member of the community and I'm sorry if you don't understand where I am coming from, but it seems like the DMS team ALWAYS gets everyone all hyped up and anxious only to let us down. I totally agree that they offered a superior product by making it upgradable and I wouldn't trade my DMS for anything. The way that they go about releasing the upgrades doesn't do the chip justice though. They should either release it when they have said that they would or don't promise a date in the first place. Are you telling me that when they tell their customers something, the customers should take it with a grain of salt? If you expect your customers to disbelieve what you tell them, that is just bad business practice. I am not bent out of shape and I am fine with what I currently have. I am only making observations about the way that they release their upgrades and noting that it is not a good way of doing it. If they hadn't said anything about when the flash would be released and one day they just posted the flash on their forums, everyone would be extatic. Instead they create a huge build-up to another let down. This has happened with every flash release and chip release so far. I would think that they would become a little wiser eventually.
2 - i meant that the mods who aren't dms3 producers would not be able/have time to moderate the site. and even if they could, there's not much point of the DMS3 TEAM(people who could admin the forums) spending time on admining the forums when they could be completing the flash
look they have obviously hit into a trouble along the way. it happens, people make mistakes all the time. if they were so confident that they were gonna release the flash "the following wednesday" and didn't, there is obviously a hickup.
the only thing to do now is wait. don't visit the dms3 website, browse here as usual, just pretend they didn't say anything about a new firmware. and then when it does come out, you'll be like "oh sick a new firmware. "
even if they are bad in regards to sticking to chedual, they are kick ass programers, and i belive that that's worth waiting for...
i know where your coming from.. it is bad business practice, it is annoying, and it is frustrating. but thats' just the way things have worked out... no one can change it.
