I'd really like to see you validate your viewpoint, especially where you term me "rude, snappy and dominating".
I started posting on this forum
under my company's name, Khitchdee.
I was posting through a MacBook Air.
The posting interface was really inconvenient.
Despite several message to you to fix it,
you kept rudely snapping back at me
and have still not fixed it.
In frustration, I deleted most of my posts,
took on an incognito avatar (Wicked Waldo)
and took a more direct approach to attacking you.
You immediately banned that.
Finally I started posting under my own real name,
just to keep thing open.
Nothing changed at your need.
Your approach is just to squash dissent,
by asserting your role as moderator, much like Modi's.
(That's why I called you dominating).
You can't do that in this kind of public, internet forum.
You have to address criticism
through analysis and open discussion
and you have to encourage people to participate.
Only then you will build a quorum of support.
Otherwise, you will Don Quixote quickly.
As a start-up founder type person,
you're obviously a little different
from the average technology consumer,
who is so swept up by the flood of technology available,
and the copious amount of their time that it consumes,
that they cant really cultivate a hobby.
In reality, hobbies are not difficult to cultivate,
and don't take up much of your time.
The earlier you start the better,
but it's never too late to start.
As a popular member of this forum,
I think I speak for the others,
when I say that your behavior
is very rude, snappy and dominating.
You are not letting free and fair discussion
happen on this board,
but instead trying to set a direction
which is contrary to what we have all agreed upon.
You hide behind words like democracy
and then contradict yourself by saying lets keep the politics out.
You are showing all the traits
of one who is trying to control,
but not able to justify why we should allow ourselves
to be controlled by you.
You need to turn up your mojo a notch
for people to reveal their insights to you.
Otherwise, just kick me off this board.
It would not be the first time (I got kicked off).
Also, see this post about product design,
of which idea dev is a part:
One way is to start with a hobby:
See this post:
Coming back to my origional question
which was, by no means, confrontational,
what is a component recognition system?
Are you trying to automatically decide
what kind of UI components to use in an app
based on some higher level inputs?
I could see that requiring a search
which could be done with a neural net.
This seems to be taking longer than one would expect.
Note the dates on the posts.
With 1.3K view so far,
at least in terms of the viewing stats,
we seem to be quite democratic.
The junta is clamoring for fulfillment of promises made.
I hope you guys are not trying to "pull a Modi" on us?
