Said this in the other thread, but here is my reason:

Bytemaster's weekly hangouts is one of the things that sets this project apart in terms of transparency. I hope they will continue at least until we are clear of these early stages and we have a healthy base of users on the exchange.

Is there any reason for them not to continue? Has the PR manager made a ruling?

I don't know why they should not continue. Surely the benefits far outweigh any downside.

BitShares, like all other Blockchain offerings, will succeed or fail relative to its utility; developers; community. Those are not distinct from one another. The community takes confidence from the competence of the developers. That raw talent, is not something that can be communicated through intermediaries; any PR dulls the message.

If you are going to attract new talent and real savvy investors, who in turn will amplify the message, then you need to provide sight of what they are signing up to. If you only provide sight of the community and utility, allowing vague allusions and speculation on reality, rather than giving sight of the nuanced way that the devs are thinking, then you substantially weaken the attraction.

BitShares at its root should be about what makes Blockchain technology's potential - devolved power driven by real talent. Without open discussion about what is best, users are not encouraged to think about what is best and why they are committed to BitShares over an alternate that does hide its developers behind good PR.

If the users are truely in control and if BitShares is to be distributed, then you need to respect those users and provide them clear sight of the state of play; both so that they can understand and learn from that and so they might contribute.

Yes absolutely. Bitshares is already losing developer mindshare when compared with projects like ethereum. The most recent mumble session where BM discussed scripting was especially interesting and relevant.

Yes of course they should continue, but I have no problem with his appearance being shorter and where he has a pre-arranged plan of what to say and then just take a few questions.  There doesn't need to be a long drawn out consultation every week, but hearing an update from him is good.

They have to continue, we need transparent information about what is going on, I have always found that the weekly hangouts are the best proof of transparency we have.

This.  Why wouldn't they continue?  I'm rarely able to participate but I really enjoy listening to the Hangouts.. it keeps me up to date on things that I've missed on the forum and it's a great outlet for the community to discuss ideas.

The openness of the dev team is what drew me into the PTS / BTS community.  I have not seen any other community work together to solve complex issues as seen on this forum.

Was DevSahres created to be a testing ground for new radical features for BitShares?  A simple solution might be to just start talking about changes to DevShares instead of BitShares.  This gives everyone a chance to see if the radical idea's work or not.

Along with the continued participation of bytemaster in the weekly hangouts, I would love to hear from many of the other core devs more often as well.

I would like to know the reasoning behind why the mumble hangouts would be bad.

As far as I can remember it was mostly stuff on the blog, the forums and press quotes that caused pr problems.

Not only have some mumble sessions helped clear up a lot of issues, I also find the hangouts a better way to keep track of what's going on than trying to find the information spread out in threads on the forums.

I will continue reaching out to them.  If you have anyone in particular,  please list them.
