Haha, OK well I'll do my best then and if others step up too that would be great.. guys?
Thing is though, the conversation goes dead because you answer their questions so well. Even if it's starting out as a negative thread, you go in there with logic and fight the fire and put their fears to rest, since you're the head of the project and their issues are addressed as such so that there can be little doubt as to your intentions and where the project is leading.
I think in order to speak on your behalf, we'll definitely have to feel confident about what we're talking about and go along the same lines as you, lest we lead users away. So it's probably best to refer already answered questions to your answers in other posts and then new, unanswered questions very carefully, identify problem threads and solve them with your input.
We should also do so responsibly, by reading as much as possible and staying informed where the project has been and where it's headed.
With that in mind, I'd be more than happy to help! Where specifically do you find conversations going to uninformed speculation James? Mainly Steam?
TLDR: I think we (the "informed" community) should be very careful and put our egos aside, to avoid answering questions we know little about and direct you to them instead if we're out of our depth. The questions which have been answered before, we should just link directly to your posts and be very careful that we link directly to them.
My name's John btw
