Hi All !

I couldn’t agree more. If you can’t take criticism, software dev. is not for you. Get another job !
And, it may seem like I don’t take these into account, but I do, within (1) the vision of what IQ is and what it should be and (2) the limited time / resources I have.
IQ Outliner is a step in that direction, I hope users will find it useful (and manageable !)

P.S. I have to say I don’t remember if I’ve ever seen this much hype about an outliner before.

Even kids getting in on the action (though probably under a bit of home schooling parental pressure ;)

I think you’ve done an excellent job of handling criticism and of responding to it in a productive manner - namely, IQ Outliner!

I see that TheBrain 12 has added this feature of automatic recognition when you type the name of an existing thought:
https://www.thebrain.com/products/thebrain/thebrain12

Automatic Recognition of Mentions
- When a thought name appears within notes it is recognized automatically.
- Mentions are highlighted and respond to a right-click with a context menu to activate the mentioned thought or convert it to a direct link.
- Mentions utilize intelligent recognition of plural and singular word forms so exact matches are not required.

Related Thought Display in Content Area
- Mentions: Thoughts whose notes contain the name of the active thought even if not explicitly linked.

Speaking of wilting under criticism, there’s this

https://bit.ly/3AbxW3O

Reddit user said after Conor posted his intemperate response he blocked the user.

https://www.reddit.com/r/noteplanapp/comments/wu6mbq/this_is_the_response_i_got_from_roam_research/

No, the original complaint wasn’t specific with constructive ciritism, but it’s just another example of Conor’s thin skin.
