It can be argued that this page is also a repository for "broken clue". Dagmar d'Surreal 17:59, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Come on folks, people work on this project in their spare time and this 'sucks' page is the thanks they get? Sure it could use some improvements as every other bit of software can but there is no way in the world you can ever say it sucks and justify it. Pages like this (and indeed similarly toned threads on mailing lists) only ever seem to attract bitching from people who have never contributed a jot. I'm not saying that MythTV is beyond criticism for one minute but initiatives like this are NOT the way to convince anybody you have an idea worth thinking about. If you really want things to improve, come on - bring your ideas to the table in some form that shows you've at least thought about how you'd do things differently. "I can't code but here's an outline longer than two lines describing how it'll work" or "I can't code but this is a mockup of how it might look in operation" would be a VAST improvement. Not got the time to do that? Oh well I guess you get out what you put in, eh..

  • Sign your stuff, Juski. And would it make you feel better if it said "WHERE MythTV sucks?" Yes, there's a Feature Wishlist page, but who knows if that's watched, and there's a lot of chaff there, mainly people wanting new functionality. I think the "Sucks" page is much more useful as a method of explaining where the UI breaks down. And you're naive if you think there aren't areas of Myth that deserve the "suck" tag. --DirkGecko 20:12, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

It'd be altogether better if people contributed more than just 10 seconds of their time to chip in with their 'I think it sucks too' comments & actually came up with usable ideas instead. --Juski 20:54, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
