Dude!?What the #%$& is your PROBLEM?! LEAVE IT ALONE!Everyone is telling you to leave it alone. You're a nooby, trying to reinvent chdk and the way it's laid out, and you're NOT HELPING!These guys are all being really nice about it, but personally, you're really starting to pi$$ me off! What's wrong with you? You voiced your opinion(s) like a dozen times now, and the basic, inarguably unanimous consensus is that you are generally disagreed with. Your actual useful input to chdk REALLY, REALLY doesn't afford you the volume of wasted forum space you've used to continue to spout out your big plans for something that you haven't even contributed to.That goes for your new "idol" who thought pestering Canon for their source code was a great idea, too. In fact, I was just gonna keep my own yap shut on this till I read that you agree with him!Niether one of you have done a thing here, yet you're eager to tell everyone all the improvements that could be made. That's not helpful. AT ALL. And neither one of you are using your head regarding the legalities and proprietorship involved with CANON'S (as in, THEY ALREADY &(+#&%^$& OWN IT, BRO!) code. -Yes, yes, love, daisy chains and open source for everyone... -NOT! Use your head. Canon is a corporation who doesn't give a rat's @$$ about you or me. You really think they don't have a few employees who work on things like code and production? You really think they NEED the help of CHDK to make their cameras all sing and dance?-Or is it more likely that Canon knows what it's doing by marketing virtually identical P&S cameras all with different external designs and features?That's not opinion. It's common sense!!! People like you can get things like chdk shut down. (Are you from Canon?! )Put your time in before you go trying to rally up a revolution. I asked you before, as others have; If you want to contribute, stop wasting all this effort and energy and channel it into rewriting or restructuring the wiki.
To Pyschokitty: I really thought you were better than that. I think your post was completely unnecessary (not to mention extremely rude). You could have said the same thing in a much nicer way, without 20-point red curses. If you don't like this discussion, nobody is asking you to join in. We are just exchanging our ideas.

Well that's fine because I think that about the last 50 of your posts were completely unnecessary. You don't seem to be "exchanging" any ideas what so ever.You think I alone gave you 24 "smites"? My buddy used to have a saying; when everyone at the bar says you're drunk, you're pro'bly drunk....Well guess what?
this is a huge thread, with huge posts. please don't quote the FULL posts (if they are huge), only the valid sentences or abbreviate them with "..." somewhere in the middle to cut down on the size here.
you may call it a discussion, i call it "david vs. the goliath", as in goliath represented by the core forum members who know ALOT, not only about CHDK itself, but about the whole ordeal of opensource and the likes and david is you.
Yeah great. You're a "full member" simply because you post every day about stuff that everyone has already told you how they feel about.
I'm not about to apologize for having being brought to the breaking point. Smites and all, I don't care.
You're not a contributing member. You're a "director wannabe" who has no interest in actually doing any of the actual work that's already been laid out by the likes of PhyrePhox and others.
CHDK needs people to do this work, not more people to decide what work needs to be done. So who are you to come in here and start a slew of threads on nothing but how to improve something that everyone is quite happy with as it is, without offering to do any of the needed work? Who are you to RE-insist that approaching Canon for their source code with a stupid thread of boycott after the topic has already been beaten to death?
And you guys say that I was "over the top"!PhyrePhox, I'm sorry you think I stepped over the line (and probably smited me, as well), but only because you're a moderator, and I know full well how this forum works as far as that.
I'll be smited now just because I've been smited. That's how it works around here. Once people see you've been smited a bit, they tend just to smite you for no reason. (Like how on earth did someone as nice as you are to everyone get smited?![/i] See my point?)
With some people, "nice talk" isn't enough. They'll just keep going on and on and on, asserting themselves all the while, and apparently believing that so long as they exhaust everyone else and they are the last one left standing after they've beaten the topic into the ground, they're automatically correct. Some people simply don't get it and need to be told that enough is enough, already.
If no one else will do it, then I will, and if that makes me CHDK's "forum bad guy", to be bombarded with "smites" to my "karma", then so be it. But someone had to set this guy straight.
Great. Smite me again. But I'm not simply going to take it on the chin.And BTW, I didn't actually use "foul language". If you're privy to such language in which you could fill in the blanks and assume as such, that's not my fault.
