A double edge sword. Quite the conundrum.

do people actually know what they are complaining about on here - VB.org has been quiet of late and can see why - what with everyone whinging about one thing or another - get a grip on the matter here,who cares if some decide to pull their hacks - more will come to replace them.
Put the coders in a different usergroup and call em CODERS - should keep em happy and put us mere users in a usergroup called - BEGGING for HELP

that way they feel good when they help us and everyone will be happy then

It shouldn't be all about the coders OR the codees (is that even a word?). Without one, the other wouldn't exist. It needs to be about the community. We all need to work together as one and stop working against one another.

I dunno, Boofo. The "BEGGING FOR HELP" is rather catchy. :lick:

It does have a ring to it but someone like me would have to belong to both groups then and I would get so confused.

Emabrace the code and the coder becomes secondary. After all, you are here for the functionality of code. Not to become the coders buddy.

Embracing the coder manifests the elitist attitudes. Open up the free code to the community, as the org is intended, and the code dominates, not the coders.
is the code just going to magically appear? There's a far more limited supply of coders willing to release their work(especially good coders) than there are people needing code.

I'm not saying treat coders as if they're better people for knowing how to code, I'm saying give them some perks, show some more appreciation. Don't expect code to be written for free, don't expect more people to come and replace people who have left. If people feel like their contributions don't mean anything or don't make a difference than they will in fact leave.

There's so many members that seem to think they are entitled to custom code, 24/7 support for all their questions and problems and that everything should happen on their schedule. Maybe there's some misunderstanding with many members that think the coders here are employees or something?

And no where in my posts did I refer to sucking up to coders or trying to become their buddies, etc. As you said, I am here for the code, but I'm not ignorant, I know there's a person on the other end who has to write the code. I don't have to kiss up to them, but I should respect the work they've done, the time they've put in and the fact that they're willing to share it with me.

As far as the private forum thing, why is that such a big deal? Do we even have to know about it? Do you have a forum with some sort of staff section that only you have access to? Does that give you an elitist attitude? Maybe there's some things that coders should be able to discuss behind closed doors, like how to deal with disrespectful members, pointing out security problems in a hack or even reprimanding someone for an elitist attitude

That will work! In most instances, anyway.

Coding and Designing teams, as Boofo rightfully stated, unite as one and get on the code!
