It's not that easy. EHM is an official game i frankly doubt i can hypothetically charge money on a non-solicited thing...

I don't feel the responsibility to join the research when I bought the game to play it.

Which isn't to say I, alongside everyone else, very much appreciate the incredible work everyone involved in the TBL updates, and all the other add-ons, have done. But as far as I'm concerned, I certainly am happy playing the game and giving some remarks in this thread every once in a while. Should I have part ownership of the game franchise to have the right to complain in this thread? Is that what this is about?
I apologize for that post, I wrote it on emotions.

Btw Tomorrow or so we'll release a 9.4 version of the TBL DB but this time we ironed out all the possible bugs so it will be the last one for now.

At least you realize it!

When I tried to take a leadership role with the rosters the two biggest issues I ran into were #1 people not actually producing anything (which given it's a volunteer position, "that's life"; it's actually the norm that the majority of volunteers who say they'll do something do nothing) #2 many volunteers don't actually understand the game and how it works very well, and don't understand what you're mentioning in your post quoted above, meaning the person "in charge" has to do a lot of explaining/reviewing/correcting things

People that want quality will pay for quality...researchers that want to be appreciated will produce a quality product...
I went directly to the source, and was told SI really only pays coders/programmers (I could work on rosters/editing/testing full time for a third of what I made as a Teacher Assistant, which wasn't much! HaHa but alas it seems it's not meant to be).....I haven't done any roster work/researching in almost a year now, and that's seemingly unlikely to change (I've thought about it lately, but it seems unlikely I'll do much or if I do it won't be regarding the "modern database" - if my modern database efforts could be limited to days/weeks [instead of the 5-6 months of my freetime I spent every year from 2012-2016 doing Major Junior] I might still help out, otherwise if I ever return to editing for free I think I'd look to improve the retro databases I've worked on, both released and not released (which, despite the spectacular/exciting improvements made in editability for retro databases [thanks Arch! and all those involved in testing!], I still haven't had the motivation to do so).....I don't think I'll ever return to testing for free

(98 database with fantasy draft)

I managed to get 4 1st, 4 2nd and 2 3rd round picks for a severely underperforming Jeremy Roenick.

It's not "official" but yes it should be the ultimate version.
