"our ROM was never here to compete with the others. Its served to bring aosp to a enhanced state. It was never done to be a "toggle all the things" type of ROM. "
I am sorry but that's just not true. Everyone who used PA 3.9 knows what type of ROM this used to be. Until 4.0, P.A. was Toggle All The Things type of ROM. And users LOVED it.
Now, with the release of 4.0, everything went to trash. This ROM gained recognition from its amazing features and the ability to customize basically anything you wanted.
You could customize PIE the way you wanted to, you could customize the size of things with Hybrid, you could choose a certain layout and if that didn't work for you, you could change it back. But now there's NONE of that.
I think what I'm trying to say is that they keyword for the ROM, as it stands, is: "You can't."
Oh wow I wish I could pull my notification panel from PIE, that would be usef-You can't. This is not part of our philosophy anymore. Seek other ROMs.
How about giving Hover this function-No. We know better. Please put it in our Git and we'll review it.
Do you see how closeminded this is getting? Some team members put themselves higher than the users and basically bash them from trying to interact and/or suggest more features.
This is not a sense of entitlement, and to be considered a prick for talking about the ROM instead of simply bending over and saying "Great work, fuck the haters!" is offensive to say the least. There are people, including myself, that have been loyal to Paranoid Android for a long time.
And what happened? The passion is no longer there. The features are no longer there. People are being rude and all we see is - indeed - a polished, well executed and clean ROM, but with no flavor to it.
If we wanted to be assholes for the sake of being assholes, we would not try to provide feedback. We would post all over the community walls and all over the comment section about how "THIS SUCKS LETS ALL MOVE TO PAC BECAUSE FEATURES AM I FUCKING RIGHT GUYS" and that is NOT what we're doing.
I just want this Paranoid circlejerk to end, and people to open their minds a little bit about the state of what we're dealing with here. Power users are pretty much gone but my love for the ROM still remains and I look forward to the day where I can go back and say I'm proud of this ROM again.
