Nice plans, wishing luck :)

Oh I have one for sure, I just ain't allowed to upload it yet :P

I agree and it saddens me as well. I would very much prefer to see everyone work together on SMF 2.1 and SMF 3.0, which would both probably turn out great if all of these forkers (see what I did there? ;)) really tried. But that obviously won't happen and I personally can't see myself work on SMF again the way it is now. I've realised I'm better of on my own. I want to be able to do the stuff I want, add the features I want, without first having to let everyone in a full team (Even though it's a great team) have their say, and then go through three polls per thing. I'm exaggerating now, but you get my point. I'm not a team player in that sense. But to be honest, the biggest reason for me is that it simply isn't what it used to be without all the old people around, sadly.

Exactly my thoughts too - and the main reason why I rather work on stuff on my own, than venture into a team(SMF or otherwise) again. Its just too much hassle, and I would not be able to do what I do best anyway, because everyone would have to "approve" what I do first.(that may sound more harsh than I like it to sound - not all are like that of course, but many are, sadly).

But looking forward to see the progress in your project. I will surely port my SMF themes over, when the time comes. :)

Jeff Lewis:
Is it that bad? I mean development for SMF these days...that it requires poll after poll? Don't lead dev and dev teams have a little more freedom?

AngelinaBelle:
I joined the team in Jan 2011. So I don't know how features were chosen for SMF 2.0.  That was a while ago.
I don't think polls are taken on feature choices.  There is a lot of discussion about everything.
