There are posters on this board that complain about slow roll out of features/etc but they are incredibly negative in the way they do it, if these posts are on facebook they really should be removed.

But if anyone is researching a product to decide whether to purchase it or not they should not go to just the products site for this research (or FB) they should look else where.
You think people don't do that? You think people don't have rl friends that they aren't FB friends with? That route is sure to get a company in huge trouble. It is not ingenious. It is sure to just make the customer even angrier.

As to people on the forum being "incredibly" negative. I stood up for LWD for a long time. I bought RW in 2015, IIRC, and at the time updates and new features were rolling out at a steady pace. Then roughly Fall of 2016 everything became about rolling out the CM and updates and new features ground to a halt as did any real communication from LWD. For a long time after that I still stood up for them. I knew what they were doing was going to be hard but when all communication stopped and they said they couldn't make any progress because of Paizo and bug reports were being completely ignored and despite the fact there was nothing they could reasonably be doing on the CM front we still got no bug fixes and no new features I soured on LWD. Then they announced HLO which clearly was going to take the focus of their web technology guy(s) away from working with Paizo to get the CM working to that. I bit my tongue because clearly they must be having a money crunch. But after another year almost and when people around here have to literally beg for any scrap of info they get a huffy "nothing new so we can't see why we should bother with telling you anything." I had finally had enough.

People aren't being "incredibly" negative. Some of them are backers who are waiting for rewards for years that should have been delivered at least 6 months ago, that was the last time BJ promised them. Some are fans of the project who want it to succeed, in my case I made videos to evangelize it because Liz asked the community to do so, I'd still be doing so if there was anything new to show people. I doubt any of the forum regulars doesn't truly love the project and have many hundreds if not thousands of hours of our creativity wrapped up in it. We just want it to be better because it is so clearly partially finished in so many frustrating ways and it falls further and further behind technologically every day.
