What is the Problem with this side ?

We have together write with skimmy and other writer this wiki.

I have talk to cxandy. This Projekt Based on Smoothieware it is open source. Github site we will create with data about board in eagle file



That product has been flagged as not Open-Source for over a year, nobody took care of fixing it, and now that finally the page gets unlinked, people complain ??
 The reprap wiki is *not* for advertising closed-source projects. Once the source is properly published, feel free to add the page back, but not before that ! --Arthurwolf (talk) 14:44, 5 February 2017 (PST)
Skimmy wrote messages to cxandy and did not receive any response.
I did the same.
I like the AZSMZ Mini and hope the problem can be fixed, but it look's like cxandy is not interested. --Microfortnight (talk) 03:12, 6 February 2017 (PST)
 In a forum message somewhere, a few months after the board came out, they explained they had no interrest in making it Open-Source. Therefore this has no place on the Reprap wiki until they change their mind.
By the way, the board is also absolutely horrible design, it's got USB going bellow the stepper drivers, which causes a ton of USB problems, there are lots of reports of that.
It has plenty of other design flaws, some of which are even dangerous.
Even if this were Open-Source, there are a lot of other boards that are much better than this one, even ones with pololu sockets like this one does. --Arthurwolf (talk) 03:35, 6 February 2017 (PST)
Thanks for your response but it's too late for me, the Wiki page didn't have the not-open-source banner, so I bought one :-(
That's one of the reasons I like to keep these pages. With these banners, it was easy to see if a board is open-source or not.
IMHO we should tell people why open-source solutions are important for RepRap and not hide/delete everything else. --Microfortnight (talk) 03:49, 6 February 2017 (PST)
