Probably, this requirement only wants to
create a link between new LiveCode users
and the current LiveCode community and
Mark, How many new LiveCode users
stop using this platform after a single glance
or after a really short time of use?
My educated guess is that many, many new
users do not take enough time to try this platform
in all it's complexity and extension. Many new
user are just looking for a ready made solution
for their application needs.
In my experience, some users do not want to learn
something completely new and unfamiliar. They just
want a program with an interface similar to Microsoft Office
with added functionalities like scripting and compiling...
Maybe, just maybe, LiveCode should offer something
like a free short course on a topic of specific interest for
the new user in exchange for this email direction.
