Possible to know more about this? It seems that many persons on this  
list have done the same.

Again we are back to the same problem. Revolution Company has limited  
resources. Users on this list seems to be very resourceful. Why  
always direct the complaints against revolution? Why not start  
thinking about what *WE* users can do to improve this. Because we  
paid for a license means we shouldn't do the service? What matters  
most for you, the fact you paid for your license or the quality of  
the service you could get if each one of us gave a hand, as a  
function of his time, dedication, and level of skill?

This page: http://revolution.lexicall.org/wiki/tiki-index.php? 
page=RevolutionSnippetTips
has been accessed 215 times. Numbers of persons who have taken the  
time to update it other than me (nothing more than cut and paste from  
a post on the list, 2 minutes of your time a week maximum): 0 (zero).

I would have more resources at my fingertips if more of *you users of  
this list ranting against the lack of good docs* decided to invest a  
bit more of *your* time in the creation of a good documentation.

  The documentation is really excellent... comparing well if not  
better than other documentation systems I have been using (Visual  
Basic or Visual Basic for Applications, for instance). With other  
languages, you can often find a book that make up for unclear  
documentation, but this comes with an extra price tag. To improve  
this documentation, there are two models: Extensive Collaboration and  
a free service... Everybody trying to get more than he gives, keeping  
everything he has developed for him/herself and a paying service.  
Choose the model you want for the years to come in this community...  
but if you choose the second, please spare me the rants against the  
doc. Dreamcard is less than $100 and Macromedia Studio 8 costs $400.  
What you get for less than $100 is *extraordinary*.
