Why the Roadmap needs to be updated now

Cardano has been getting some good press lately. So there may be new investors, new app developers, new journalists, new financial institutions or other governments new to crypto that might research Cardano. The website is their first impression. Now there will be new people that will not know who Charles Hoskinson is or know about his AMA’s. They (and many on this forum) do not check the pull requests on GitHub or even know how GitHub works - to see that the project is actively being developed. So, when new people see the Roadmap and it says “Back Soon” - it gives the impression that work has stopped on the project or it has been abandon altogether. This is BAD.

Why not instead say - "The project is in the Shelly phase development and is actively being developed by top developers, mathematicians, cryptographers, and academia. As the project advances to the next phase Gougen, the roadmap is updated accordingly. Check the forum, telegraph, twitter and YouTube channels for all the latest news. "

A paragraph like this is far more accurate, leaves a positive impression and the expectation that the roadmap will be changed in the future. Plus, it helps fight against the trolls and fud mongers.

Anybody can help to pass this to the Cardano website admin? I know how important it is. Imagine you’re new to Crypto and you’re try to choose which the best Crypto you want to buy. You’ll dig the white paper and definitely the roadmap. That’s why it’s so important.

Great suggestion @Montna_Jim

Communication is very important for projects like this, especially when there are various different types of stakeholders.

Agreed, this is not something to be proud of:
