Seriously, what's with front-end authors playing the martyr? it's like if they are asking for pity. "I don't have proper training, I am busy and I have a though life. You're not allowed to criticize my work I spend on my very little free time I'm not pursuing money to eat today ... but use my project, I recommend it. I only have enough free time to accept good feedback".
BREAKING NEWS!!! Everyone has a though life and everyone spends their free time on these projects. It's not our fault you chose a deprecated / unpopular language (Delphi) to program and never learn anything else. Neither is if you self consider you live in a shitty country you can't earn money. Even less is not our fault you chose poorly a career you don't have the abilities or field experience necessary to earn money or improve your project. We don't care about your personal life as excuses to do a bad job. Your bad work, your fault. An excuse to earn pity won't make it any better. One thing is "I'm busy at the moment I can't fix it for now" and it's totally different to "I can't change it because I'm poor. I'd fix it but I'll have to rewrite it all and that's time I can't earn money ". The victim role doesn't fit you when you do exactly the same given the chance.
Do you have any idea how many people apart from yourself has to deal with money and health problems? It looks like you don't. It also looks like you believe MAME developers get paid over their free time fixing bugs, improving emulation or adding new dumps. Offering something to the public, free or not, involves getting positive and negative critics because as the word says it's now PUBLIC. You don't want to be "attacked by backstabbers when my life is so miserable ", don't make it public. Simple as that.
