Hi there and thanks for the new version.
It is unbelievable, that people do such a great job in the spare free time and each time i go to bed i send a prayer to the holly Lord to create more people like this, which are doing an altruistic work.
I hope, that it is allowed to write some wishes which might sound like criticism after this introduction.
In my last post (page 2) i was wondering about the way of announcing a new version by date and time and the lapidary way of "****** happens".
I even wanted to write a short post and earned replays that told me to be happy about the work of the streamer team. Ok, one of them came from southern germany whichs football-team lost against my great HSV a few days before, so....
(by the way, it was the 2nd lost in this season).
But I ask myself, who supports whom?
In my point of view the success of streamer is to find in the count of broadcasters and the success of a broadcaster is the number of listeners, right?
Now i presume, that both, the team and the broadcasters, want to work successfully.
The way of rollout the new version is in this point of view counterproductive to the the success of the broadcasters and the team.
It came to me over night and all listerners have read, that there is a new version out in the streamer window. It is tuesday and many broadcasters only have the weekend to spend time and work to their stations.
Most of the stations have a download&install link included on their website which is now linking to the new version, what means, that the broadcasters have to update right now. Outherwise the visitors of the homepage which are clicking on the d&i link can´t listen to the station...
Certainly i can´t stop the people telling me to be happy about everything and only to say thanks, but i mean, if something could have done better, it should.
This is not a complaint, it is a wish to more communication or information next time, so that every broadcaster has the time to prepare his station and plan the time to update. I see no reason of an overhasty rollout. No listener (and they are the endconsumers) was waiting for a new version, so it could be released carefully and in cooperation or coordination with the broadcasters next time.
Why don´t we celebrate the next release alltogether in a night from saturday to sunday?
PS: Maybe i haven´t read the right postings, but i didn´t find a new release-announcement or version changelog somewhere. If it exists i say sorry for my replay right now and will be happy about a link. But the fact, that the first station in the list has 8 listerners right now, gives me the feeling, that i´m right.
