From: Washington, DC
I'd like to see TOAW become an open source project so that us computer programmers could help out. Update the GUI more, fix bugs, expand the features of the game engine, develop some MODS for the community, maybe develop some "skins" so that some eye candy could be applied to the GUI...
Don't forget *cough cough* hexside rivers...
Just because we haven't had a good hexside river discussion in a while.
Also, as a follow-up to Lobster's informative post, I would like to ask why Bart is a temporary project leader? Why doesn't TOAW rate a permanent leader? What will cause Bart the temporary project leader to be replaced by a permanent leader? And what is the point of appointing a temporary leader to do nothing? I don't mean to pick on Bart--I'm sure he's a wonderful fellow--but I just don't understand his role with this game, or rather whether he has a role.
Finally, while I understand if certain things can't happen if the developer goes AWOL, that is not much of an excuse for the complete lack of communication, which is also a problem.
