Looking for the information of if, at some point, a Resonate Roadmap had been made available by the board members and teams working on the project, I came across this post which sums up what I think pretty well.
I think this definitely warrants a dedicated topic. The current lack of a roadmap makes a lot of people hesitant to talk and discuss things, seeing that they’re in the dark as to what is actually being worked on, who decided what, on what ground etc. But it also makes a lot of the discussions by those who are indeed talking possibly redundant or misplaced, which is also a waste of precious human energy we don’t want.
This is a lack of transparency that’s 100% understandable reconning Resonate is very much getting back on track after a few years of being “in between things”, and inevitably a lot isn’t ready / well organized yet.
However, the reason I’m opening this door is I think it’s currently detrimental to people looking to get involved further with the platform, which means it also holds it back. So I see it as a priority above all else for the organization of the community into a meaningful space.
I can only guess at the reasons why a roadmap isn’t widely available yet (at least here on the forum, as a pinned-to-top post) and seeing that we got a few informations from @peter and @richjensen that a lot of rather fundamental changes are coming to the platforms in the coming… well that’s the point, in the coming days? weeks? months? year? anyhow seeing that I’m guessing there’s quite a lot on the roadmap, and there must be one somewhere.
I should also point out this particular lack also probably puts a lot of work and pressure on the shoulders of some of the most regularly involved volunteers (I’m thinking of @Hakanto here) who then have to constantly act as a buffer between the decision making / working team and the rest of the community.
So I guess right now I’m more humbly asking for a “roadmap of the roadmap availability to all”.
I think this is really where it all starts for the people looking to get involved in this space, before we even ask people “what can you do”, they need to have a bird’s eye view of “what are the people already doing things doing?”, and I must say, even after trying to get quite involved into this, I haven’t quite managed to find enough knowledge to really form an opinion on both what’s going on and how I can help more efficiently (than with those long posts for example).
