Note this is not an atempt to have a fight it's a clarification of position. Something I reserve the right to have second or even 'n' thoughts about.
I've wanted access to this option for development since I had a share in a Beta test of fan stuff on H'uru (A private) shard during the UntilUru days before D'mala so if there's any thunder to steal it was stolen long ago.
One of the biggest arguments against this is that it pushes the Cyan IR issue.
Now all I want is to find and solve problems in my own age and posibly help others solve problems in theirs. I don't want to get access to ages hacked from Cyan and if I could do this without seeing any Cyan stuff then I would.
I would acctually prefer to run something personal inside a firewall but then the help I could muster would have me locked up (for talking to myself which I may be dooing here).
Whilyam if you dont want to use it then don't use it but don't try and pontificate from some moral high ground it's unbecoming. If a better one comes along later and it is better then we will probably all move to it Including Dustin (although I shouldn't realy speak for him)(apollogies Dustin).
I don't read anything into firsts to do something. It wasn't a race and it still is not a race. I will continue to use each and EVERY tool presented to me in order to produce a valid age.
Dustin has released something and has made it feely available it's not like he's trying to make a fast buck.
If truth be known I probably don't like the idea of hacking Cyan ages and worlds into development space but I am not about to veto a tool becuse it's used in a dubious way elswhere.
That's like not using battery power to start my car because some one somewhere is using it to hard wire someones gonads (and I don't mean for fun purposes with consent).
A veto will not make this go away Dustin would probably run it if it was occupied by him and a deceased flemish nun. (That's a reference to Mother Teresa of Calcutta BTW).
So if you don't like it and you want to wait for something else, then go wait I don't mind it's a free world (within reason).
So you get this clear when I thank Dustin it's because I like what he's made available for ME to use.
