To answer your question: Amature coders who listen to tutorials that say to get rid of them and then can't find the right replacement files when they appearently need them again. This was a simple solution to get it compiling again so I can do basic experimentation thats at my level of coding knowledge until I can get the right files and figure out how to put them back in. Even when I do get those files in there, I'll still have to figure out why the code didn't compile with them in originally and how I can fix the problem without deleting them again. Rather than going through all that frustration, I'm fine with giving up some crash protection in my code temporarily so I can get back to making basic adjustments for testing and experimental gameplay purposes.

My role on this team is primarily design ideas, moderating, and beta testing and the only coding I really do here is for testing my own ideas and presenting them from an already partially tested fashion. I don't commit any of my code unless razor sees it first and is convinced it isn't a hack
