Hello people. Work is being done, slow because summer is a slow season, and we're all busy working or at beach or working at beach, or whatever we're doing. But work is being done. And there will be a release soon, tho I'm not sure if a 2.1.x or that 2.2.0 that everyone wants to be released. We'll see about that.

On a side note,

THE WIKI IS NOT A PLACE TO REPORT BUGS OR ASK FOR HELP.

MY EMAIL IS NOT A PLACE TO REPORT BUGS OR ASK FOR HELP.

ADMIN_AT_AMULE.ORG EMAIL IS NOT A PLACE TO REPORT BUGS OR ASK FOR HELP.


UPDATE: NO, THE REPORT BUTTON ON THE DOWNLOAD PAGE IS NOT A PLACE TO REPORT BUGS OR ASK FOR HELP EITHER.

Every bug report or help request filed via those methods will be ignored, and the user punished if I ever find out his real life location.

No kidding. I get plenty of mails a day.

So, I've never asked for help or reported a bug.  I was seeking a new version to download… when I saw this message proudly displayed on the homepage. It was disappointing.

I'm sure you are overloaded with clueless users using the wrong channels for communication.  That really sucks, and you have my deepest sympathies.

However, if you'd really like to help solve this problem, you may wish to provide some positive guidance as to HOW they can do these things.  Just yelling at them for what they are doing wrong, without some direction, is not helping your cause at all.

Also, your attitude implying violence has me reconsidering eMule as a project I wish to make monetary contributions to.

Kindest Regards,
3ric

You completely missed the point. Specialy about the violence bit. We can't provide more positive guidance - there's no way. There are like 30 forum sections in 5 different languages (maybe more). There is irc channel. I was personally replying those mail to point the proper comunication channels - it just made people mail me MORE. We were pointing people from wiki to the proper channel, now we just delete the edits. Same with the report button. I'm about to disable it, we get like 1 useful report for every 1 thousand "OMG WHERE IS SEVER LIST CAN'T DL PORN LOLZ". Seriously.

But you misunderstood the post. Read it again. I gave updates on the project's state, The I put some big warnings about what NOT to do, which is something we have been doing in a per-user basis for the last what, 2 years, 3 years? And it doesn't work. The best way to reach users is the main page on the website, as you just realized yourself, and belive me, if there's anyone thinking an open source developer is going to look after him in Real Life (tm) to punish him for being clueless, I guess he deserves what he gets.

Really, some people (fortunately just a few percentage) just DOESN'T CARE or BOTHER to do the right thing. They think "OH LOLZ THEY WILL READ ME WIZ DIS BUTTON" and use it to spam the hell out of us. And I don't mean just help, I mean pure spam. I don't know what can get someone to use temporary mail boxes to mail those aliases to just annoy the hell out of us with spam and "LOLZ I'M MAILING YOU WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO DIS IS NOT ME REAL MAILZ ROFL", etcetera, but I guess boredom is the primary reason.

And the day people bothers to read the wiki for help before asking, or search the forum for help before asking, or read the irc channel rules or even the topic which states some basics (like reading the wiki and the forum first), it'll be a happy day. I'm sorry you find my lack of spoon-feeding willingness discouraging in donating to the project. Guess trying to get the people to think for themselves and be resourceful nulifies any coding we might do, or the usefulnes of the app for you.

Really, my post has been very kind, for what some people deserves, and for what people here is used to see from me. It was so kind, some people like you might have taken it seriously. Think again.

In the meantime, another bug fix release would be fine.

No, it just crashes a little bit too often.

No on my side. I have seen no really critical bug for 2.1.3, nor any crash report with info that can be reproducible on my side to fix it. Everything I've seen seems distro-related.

Fix kademlia for amuled. It disconnects from Kademlia and there is no way to force a reconnect unless you restart amuled.
I found out that the network code for amulegui and amuled is not the same so that explains why it works with amulegui but not amuled.
