You absolutely nailed it, J!
I am a retired systems engineer and since about 2003 have accumulated what I call an accidental business as a professional web developer. My work is limited to high-end database driven turnkey information systems for small businesses and small to medium size nonprofit organizations. Since January, however, I am practically out of business as a result of my need to oversee and provide care for my husband, who suddenly became seriously ill then. As a result, I have told my clients who needed anything from me during that time to please find someone else to provide their needs. At this point, I don't feel very sharp and don't remember what version numbers are current or how far out of date WikiTree's version is.
Over the four years I have been a member here, I have seen many things about the way things are done that I would never consider doing. I have also made some suggestions in the past - even offered to donate my services to assist the very small and overextended technical staff. It is not appropriate for me to judge their priority list of planned improvements is ill advised, since I am not privy to the parameters driving their decisions. Any disagreement I may feel with either the things they do (and plan to do) or the ways in which they do them is inappropriate, since I am not seeing the whole picture. I therefore try to keep my opinions to myself about any specific features, functions, styles, etc.
