    Default Comments on "About Xara Web Designer"

    I feel I need to comment on a statment made by “sledger” about the nature of Xara Web Designer (XWD). Sledger (on behalf of the Xara Team) comes with various statements which I have commented here.

    The Talkgraphics moderators aren't representatives of Xara. We are Xara users like you. We try to serve the community of users as best we can and we do so without any remuneration from Xara. Sledger, like any moderator, does not write "on behalf of the Xara Team".

    Hi Sten,
    I'm afraid you have made a big mistake..

    To coincide with the release of Xara Web Designer, Xara asked that I create the new Web Designer forum at TalkGraphics.
    All of the content of the opening sticky thread was provided by Xara which, as you can see, is signed: -The Xara Team, Not 'On Behalf of the Xara Team'

    In other words, the 'About Xara Web Designer' opening thread was not written by myself at all.

    I must therefore ask that you remove your comments about 'it' being my statement and, as Google has already indexed your site, correct your error quickly.

    In future, it would be best to contact either myself, another moderator or Xara themselves before using and commenting on material published at TalkGraphics.com for your own website purposes. It is polite and the right thing to do.

    Finally, why did you not bring your 'comments' to TG for discussion instead of directing people to your own website?
    It's what TalkGraphics.com, your membership and the Web Designer forum is for, surely?

    Many thanks
    Steve (sledger)

    Sten, I would like to comment your last, and only constructive paragraph in your article, called "Finally: Lets make it even better!".

    Your idea to extensively use WD is not new, as I have heard it from quite a few other TG members. So, if you want to organize a volunteer developers team, the best place to do it is TG.
    I suggest you create a thread where you put out your ideas, share them with community, and who knows, perhaps it will result in something useful.

    Also as a part of Xara team I feel not very pleased hearing this:
    But I hope that this article have been inspirational to the xara-team and others who have read it!.
    Are you trying to imply that xara-team is uninspired with WD? Well, sure you have a right for your opinion, but after all the tweaks and improvements we made shortly after the first release of the product, this works in reverse - reading such things I'm a one step from regretting that I actually did all this.
    John.

    I would never expect to be moderated while giving my points of view! The reason is that I like to have a BLOG where I collect my own articles.
    Cheers,

    No, guess my poor english made it come out wrong.

    In general getting 2nd opponions on a thing is inspiring, so I was hoping that my comment would somehow inspire you to see new sides of XWD
    Cheers,

    I typed the three words netsi sledger XWD into google and your ex-link was the very first item in the list No Problem

    The web is an open place whatever this forum may or may not be...

    Ok Sten, I understand.
    So, if you do really want to exapand WD functionality some way, you may cont on my support.
    But I would ask you to keep the project (if it will take a look of an open project) on Talkgraphics, because I'm active here and it would be much easier to keep in touch this way.
    John.
