I'm concerned about Desktop Gadgets. This could and should be a critical tool for developers to sell their applications. As it transpires I think it's falling short of its potential.
I submitted a gadget about 4 weeks ago and heard nothing; it's just sat in moderation. I appreciate that Stardock have been busy with GalCiv 2, and that moderation needs to be done carefully. However, this is an incredibly simple gadget which should have flown through.
I have DeskNotes 2 really which is a different issue altogether. I have literally invested thousands of hours in this and it is a really substantial gadget. I'm reluctant to publish this as I currently don't have the confidence in things moving forward, and I certainly don't want to develop anything else for the site at this time.
I'd be interested to hear what plans are for the site. If time can't be invested in it then please just let us know so we can make our own plans accordingly. The lack of communication is more damaging than anything.
