Open Source Dev Musings / Fork-off 

When someone tells you to "Just fork it" it is always a power play from their side. They are saying it because they know that you alone can't do anything about it.

They know you can't fork it if you're not a coder.

They know you can't fork it if you only understand front-end stuff.

They know you can't fork it alone.

Telling someone you know can't fork it to do it is equivalent to Fuck off, or as some other people said it.

But what if you're not alone?

What if so many of us have been told to that we together possess enough knowledge and experiences that we can go forward with this project?

What if we survey the battlefield (because that's what it felt like today) and see what we can contribute, together?

No one can alone, but together we may be able to.

I present to you: The Great Fork-Off Survey of 2018

This is just one step, among many towards finding out what we can do, if we just do it together.

Take your time with it, you don't have to answer it all right now, we also don't have to all the answers today.

But please jot down any questions in that last box, any thoughts that popped into your head that you don't want us to lose, and I'll do my best to make sure they are in another survey down the road. Or addressed somehow.

Keep CWs ON! Fork-off 

Since we all had a really rough day with a lot of meta discourse, I want to encourage everyone to keep the CWs on when we talk about this today/tomorrow and so forth.

Because I don't want to be the reason to drain more people of energy because of this.

If your replies to me remove the CWs I've already set, I probably wont respond to you.

@maloki How do I block it? It's getting ridiculously dominant in my feed :x
