Also, to characterize the fairly massive updates that have been made to Fallen Enchantress over the years as minor updates characterizes one of the reasons there isn’t a lot of incentive to read the forums for those games.
It discourages me as an owner of the game. I can only imagine how it affect developers. I consider Steam forums an inconsistent, often vitriolic, environment. I am thankful that Stardock runs their own environment and encourages communication there. Even occasional Frogboy rants are a sign of how much everybody cares at Stardock.
