But really though, one of the strengths, IMHO anyway, of SMF(at least partly and def. more in the beginning than later years) was that graphics/UI/coding/framework was done by different people,good at what they did and allowed some freedom in it. One man project implies strength in ALL these displines..thats hard to come by, if not impossible. For example, Wedge doesn't strike me as very exciting graphicwise - maybe becasue they want to control it all? Not their fault, and that can be good in itself. But with a good graphic person and without any of the coders interfering too much, it would be a better project. Well, IMHO anyway, but this is not about them.

So thats why i am curious on who you are, Femshep - or if there are more people involved.And why I put the "challenge" out there. ;)

I see where you're coming from and I agree. But that only makes this a more interesting challenge for me. I look forward to seeing your feedback once I've begun.

Not sure what information is needed other than the fact that a former SMF geek is throwing away some more of his/her life on a fork like most others out there. And oh, the fork will be the most open son-of-a-source your sources have ever opened. I can give you the source of that, openly.

No, thats not what I am saying, I could focus Wedge as well, but chose not to. SMF is my focus. I am only wondering who Femshep is lol.

okai, now I am indeed curious.

青山 素子:
It's too bad that there is such a move on all the multiple forks. It seems to be draining the core SMF of development. Heck, I'm surprised that there isn't even a 2.0 point release yet fixing things.

That said, the ideas look interesting. Hopefully there will be something to look at eventually.

Eliana Tamerin:
Femshep, you need a proper avatar. Something with an N7 logo, a big gun, maybe even that cute outfit from Stolen Memory. ;)

This calls for another fork!

AngelinaBelle:
It's the hottest new trend!

Of course, a new version of the code, done by the "official" team, is, technically, an in-house fork as well.  Unless it is done by community members, as open-source code, which can then be adopted back in-house by the team. With proper attribution, of course.
