Define Foldit as a Developers' TOOL, not a game and stop using the word ' game ' in context with Foldit.

We know what happens to prioritizing Beta, there have been far to many GUI suggestions that have not made to the program. Most of them fairly easy to include with almost no troubleshooting required. Wonder what ever happened to them??? Instead this ' game ' gets treated as developer's own personal voltmeter taking measurements he/she can include in some published paper.
If I had known ahead of time that tamirh was leaving, you can be assured there would have been at least one more GUI suggestion re-submitted, as I can't find the original submission.
No, I'm not angry, but purely disappointed, far to much work and effort went into the filters' problems, and none into creating a better client.
I don't blame this on tamirh, but I do blame it on someones' method of prioritizing.
More interest needs to be displayed by devs to make this TOOL into a mainline program, instead of the beta it now exists and seems destined to remain as.
More time needs to be taken with devprev releases so these many bugs do not show up in the ' main ' releases.
I'm speaking my mind right now, and kinda glad tamirh isn't here to see it, as he didn't deserve this as a send-off, but now that he's gone, something positive needs to be done for the community and it needs to be continued, not abruptly halted for the sake of some new filter.
BTW, Murlow and others, keep bumping the ' deleting tracks ' thread. I'm from Missouri and I want to see proof of decent prioritization.
