the only problem I have with TB having to approve ALL changes for all modifications is, he is basically outsourcing ADOM to people to do his work, and only his work. and they arent getting paid for it. instead of modding and new variants it would be people getting the bugs outa adom for TB for free. Thats why i'd rather have a few people full control of it than everyone have to submit to TB first to see if its approved or not.
I dont think the source should be released just to have people work the bugs out. It should be for that yeah, but also adding content and expanding old content. Its a tough thing to decide and honestly, I really dont think there is a "right" way to do it outside of what TB feels is right for his creation, his child.
