What if I don’t have the time to “fix it myself”? Does that mean the genuine issue addressed will remain ignored?
It does not. Early on, I found quite a few issues, and submitted bug reports on the FCC github page. Some were valid, and some were my misunderstanding. Part of the process of becoming a developer is learning effective use of bug-squashing tools, such as the git reporting system. Not saying you did or did not use them, not commenting on that at all, simply saying, for those who do not have the time to fix the issue themselves, there is a viable alternative.
And you’re absolutely right, as you say you are the first responder on that conversation I’d mentioned and I am not even on the list – but then, you aren’t really aware of side conversations that may be going on, and you seemed to be looking for alternatives to correct the curriculum. Whether I have posted on that conversation or not does not in any way lessen the value of joining into that endeavor.
If you feel you have been told off by anyone here, then please let me extend a personal apology. It was never my intent to make you feel in any way wronged or challenged. If anything, I tried to suggest a constructive way to make the very changes you were suggesting.
That said, when the day comes that you work in a team, how well you can work with that team will play into your effectiveness as a member of that team.
