MLF really needs to shape up
« on: December 29, 2013, 05:39:36 PM »
Damn… MLF really needs to shape up. The forums is honestly a complete mess with no structure, and the lack of guides or guidelines that are easily accessible is staggering.

I've been using ML for the last year or so, and with the new publish of MLV I'm lost again. Took forever to find out where to download the files and now having inserted the card with the new ML files I feel lost again.

I like all others appreciate the huge coding work you guys have done, but why just dump it into this puddle of half finish and unmaintained threads and sub forums?

because this is experimental?
as soon it is ready for the masses, you will see it on the main page.

and until this is done, you will experience problems, unfinished software and yeah, no PDF guide with everything explained.

it took forever to download the MLV module?!?
click the BIG HERE link in the main post and get a recent ML build (nightly, whatever)

Get in contact with A1ex and I'm sure something could be arranged for you to organize all of the information on the site and forum.

Feel free to make constructive suggestions here: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9654.0

(you can propose a new structure, either for the entire forum or only some parts of it, or whatever you think it can be improved)
