    I just remembered my old username, so balkanman is outdated.
    and to "having some enthusiasm for the product", just watched this mars rover, meshes in the shock absorbers ( or what this funny things are named) run out sideways and nobody cares, and alltogether you cannot build suspensions like in irl cars, just absorbers, its all just soso lala, so please dont use the words "...having some enthusiasm for the product ..." and "...the fellow at the top of the company.. "
    in one sentence, or maybe you have a very special definition of enthusiasm,

    The only issue I see here is that similarity to politician statements...

    Guy beibg enthusiastic about a X product, saying there's some amazing stuff they working on and people will be blown away...

    "No, that's not what he said, don't hope for too much, he was just enthusiastic..."

    Seriously, wth is going on in here.

    This thread has metastasized. That’s what’s going on here.

    Same old thing. People take something out of context, and speculate wildly about what it might mean. Newtek says, no, that's not right. Everyone ignores this. Then, other people take issue with the speculation, and still other people complain that Newtek is opportunistically raising false hope based on nothing. Still more people wander in later, after things get sort of half sorted out, and start it all over again. Just another typical day in the forum.

    I think this little nugget of info will make a lot of users happy. The eventual release of the training will help further restore faith in LW’s continued development and will go far in assisting with marketing the product to potential new users as well. Thanks for sharing this, Chuck.

    Chuck, this is ALWAYS a Good Thing. I was very cheered when the various Cody videos released, because it clarifies a lot of things that might seem self-obvious inside the offices, but not so much out here.

    Conversely, I was quite disappointed that was not an on-going effort.

    A monthly schedule of educational releases shouldn't be TOO onerous. Monthly, pick the thing that most seems to be confusing users, or neglected by users, and give it a whirl.

    I have long said that the people who complain and ****** and moan even after the new LW come out will continue to do so.
    No one has fully taken advantages of the 2015.x cycle let alone the new 2018.x version but they still whine about the stupid merits of integration and produce nothing and offer no help.
    LIGHTWIKI Facebook board is the place for folks to get help now. I offer and recieve it. The whiners show up there a little but I dont think ppl will suffer them long.

    How about use the friggin software, man. If you are in production then its agreat tool. If you are feature matching to other apps then you will whine indefinite.

That in turn has in effect trained a lot of the community to also focus that way, and many of them wish us to persist with that focus, but we will not be doing that.
    Thats the thing my fuzz was all about, or to be more detailed: neglecting the current version marketing and training wise for the sake of a new unreleased future version. Andrews remark might not be intended in that way, but from my pov it fit into this. Since you clarified your strategy on this I'll try to see his comments not in that light, and more on the positive side.
    Thank you for take your time on this.

    Thats really great to hear. Thanks !!

    It's when you use it in production you realize that many workflows and tools is not very efficient and doesn't work very well and that missing features make your daily life harder instead of easier. We all do different things but for me doing a lot of visualisation and VR with CAD data the lack of vertex normal support in fbx is enough for me to not use Lw anymore.

    guys, you all made your statements - can we now put it to a rest? please...
    So much fuzz about a few vage sentences uttered by someone in a relaxed atmosphere chit-chatting. What was he supposed to reply: "no comment..."?!?
    come on, guys... not much to see here - walk on...

    I'm fully aware (and prolly everyone here) this wasn't an official developer statement, just a small nugget from behind the scenes, that not necessarily will come to fruition for whatever reason, or could be a total Joke on behalf of Dr Cross who knows, we're not 4 yr old, besides the dude said nothing specific.

    Anyhow, bit surprised by hostility, no one in this thread stated that they're taking his words for granted, yet we're being reminded not to set our hopes to high, it probably wasn't even about LW at all (WTH, the guy clearly says LW LOL) and generally gtfo cause we're moaners and waste times on forums, which can be closed anytime.


    So, the conclusion is, you can't be happy about software future....and you can't be pessimistic about it too because in both cases you're a moaner who is not using the software and Lightwiki page is so much better .

    LOL
