The Wiki is part of the closed beta. You'll be able to get into it once all the final touches/changes have been made. Meaning: When the Open Beta starts.

SwordofWhedon;2973697 said:Seriously, it's highly frustrating that other people are being given such a gigantic head start over the rest of us. I have a tour coming through around the same time as the store is going to open. So instead of having 2-3 months like the Rythm Authors people for example, I'm going to have more like 2-3 weeks to get songs charted and into peer review/approval if we're looking at an october open beta now. I have pro-level experience in music and video, just not the experience doing this specifically.I'd rather read an in-progress manual now and go back later.See where I'm coming from?
So while I see where you are coming from and understand your points, it saddens me to see such a negative attitude against the groups like us, who are really just trying to help things move along more smoothly. (I'd also like to state that this post contains my personal opinions on this matter and not necessarily those of other Rhythm Authors members. Just in case, , etc)
SwordofWhedon;2974428 said:So seriously, what harm is it letting people look at a work in progress manual?
SwordofWhedon;2974428 said:It's not a negative attitude any more than competition in any other industry would be, when that competition gets the ability to move 3 months-ish early. By the time I split with my partner I'm seeing 15 cents a track here. I seriously doubt we're looking to serve the same client base either. I hate waiting for things I can have now with no negative impact to anyone, especially when I'm looking at a crunch deadline and having to do a ton of the work in hotel rooms because one or both of us is going to be out of the country for much of October (and I don't have a portable synth that fits in my luggage for input). I want to "help move things along" too. So seriously, what harm is it letting people look at a work in progress manual?
Name me one other company that does that. Did Roland release the draft versions of the manual for their new TD-20X module before it was finished? Of course not.Technical documentation needs to be completed before it is released to the public. Every company in the world does that.

davidshek;2975217 said:I wouldn't worry too much about that. The RBN Store is not opening at the same time as the Open Beta. It will probably be at least a month in Open Beta before anybody can actually buy any songs. So you've got plenty of time to get your songs authored and in the store before it opens.
