Im not trying to be dumb, but what did he mean “kick up the arse”? Now that the new rust has moved to become the new rust, that they need to put more power in development?

Most people were either unaware of experimental in the first place, or only dipping in for a few minutes, causing a mostly-empty server most of the time and few people playing experimental because they were waiting for baseline.

Now people are going to be launching experimental by default, and they’re going to report/complain about the bugs they see. More eyes find more problems, and I believe garry is saying that he wants the extra attention and focus to help them drive in on problem spots. More forum activity also creates more demand on the devs to respond and deliver, but it also gives them more data in general, which should help them make more informed decisions.

I’m not a dev so I don’t know, but that’s my guess.
