Yeah, a lot of people make a lot of significant contributions to the site, but important things seem to take forever to get done.
Brad's recent patch request. has been sitting there for a day now, and hasn't even received a single comment. Not even a stupid witty remark. He has practically written everything for you. Very little design work left. I'm sitting here wondering why someone hasn't picked up on it. If I weren't about to be beaten up by several people awaiting contract work, I'd go do it myself. Instead, here's a little poll. I encourage everyone to take part in it so we can continue to address problems and get more people writing code. Good comments are appreciated as well.
Why don't you contribute more code?
lack of perl knowledge
lack of SQL knowledge
lack of LJ internals knowledge
lack of time
fear of getting rejected
