Thanks, very wise advice, I couldn't expect any less. I'm actually aware of that stuff.
I'm able to pull some plugs on very popular related websites, but I kept delaying that. But on the other hand, once we got linked in another plug about Yo Frankie on first page of [link]
, which is one of the most popular websites/communities on the web.. and we had a lot of people rushing in, we had 100 people in no time on the forums and some even offered their help. Some are even in the team now, contributing once in a while. At that time we where lacking a lot of stuff, even a nice looking website or proper design documentation and was getting bothered time after time with basic questions about the project(s), but that helped me out in some ways as well.
So the idea is to spread the word on a small corner of the web once in a while, constantly looking for fresh blood pouring in as we speed development and shape up more, while avoiding major surges of people rushing in at once. I need to remove that 'under construction' stuff right away and make something custom and more interesting hehe
The thing is that the projects are colossal amount of work and I'll be working a long time on them and I really need more skilled mates around as well as (financial) support, even if prematurely scaring off some of the people. I think it's very important to have something new (progress/eyecandy) to show off on constant basis to those interested, so that they know we're alive and doing well.
