View Full Version : Is MapDust dead?

when I first came across MapDust, it looked like a really good idea to me.

However, MapDust seems to have developed into Skobbler's step-child. Just to make my point clear:

a huge pile of bug reports because of out-dated routing data (bonus points for not telling those dates)
a huge pile of bug reports because of duplicates that aren't detected (http://forum.skobbler.com/showthread.php/2016-Duplikate-in-MapDust)
completely useless bugs with default descriptions that cannot be filtered (http://forum.skobbler.com/showthread.php/1608-MapDust-Neue-Bug-Standardbeschreibungen-lassen-sich-nicht-ausblenden)
data dumps that have been broken for over a year (http://forum.skobbler.com/showthread.php/2017-Dumps-kaputt)
time-consuming interfaces (it takes two seconds and three clicks to report a bug, yet 20 seconds to close one: captcha, typing a reason, slow server, …)
the Skobbler team not responding to those issues at all

If your goal is to piss off the people that allow you to sell a better product, then you're definitely on the right track!
