You don't know this community, and neither do I.

It just doesn't work like this.

There aren't many things you can be sure about what can work in this 
community, apart than the fact that if people shared only the things that 
are sure have a chance of becoming popular upfront, the whole community 
would stop functioning at all and everybody would just leave.

I always do my things for the 1% or 2% of the community that cares about 
my patches, because if they can care about my patches, they deserve that I 
don't count them as being part of the community that doesn't care about my 
patches. There are enough people doing the same, that all those individual 
1% and 2% add up to a very large proportion of what's being produced in 
the pd community.
