Re: [Osdc-list] What comes after Rock Star?



Is this something we feel is preventing people from using or feeling welcome on the site?  I haven't read otherwise, but maybe I'm not looking in the right places.  I think there is something to be said if you are reading an article by someone who writes regularly for the site and someone who doesn't from a quick glance.  When you combine that with the fun of unlocking achievements, I dunno, I really think the good outweighs any bad.

To me it sounds like we are looking too hard for sharp corners and we end up making a safe playground that no one wants to visit.  Just my 2 cents.

I think it add an element of fun as well. If we're not having fun doing
all this open source stuff, then why are we doing it?
