Key is balancing that.

That's what user settings are for.

TBH I am not really that impressed with "users" and what they want. Listening to any given group of people and you get just as many opionions as the number of people. Sometimes(maybe more than some) you take a choice and stick to that. If 1 user is complaining while 20 is not, I would think thats is a fair tradeoff to ignore that 1 user. If all 21 people says it stinks, well, then you know that too. ;D

Add in the Subaccount mod and you'll have a sure winner in the RP forum world.

Quoted for truth! :)

A distribution for RP forums requires it. No idea if this is it, lol. It would be interesting to see though.
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done… until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

Actually a subaccount mod has more users than RP world.  Using it for a business type forum would allow a manager to manage his workers access.

... 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. :)

Exactly why I, a person starting out as somebody who just got stuck with an abandoned SMF board, wanna learn code now. I got told NO by the team more times than I was told YES. The fork that has exactly what I want will get favored, and odds of my getting an exact match are the same as a snowball's in hell.

I am pretty sure Femship is no longer planning on working on this.

Really? Did he say he quit?

or four? Maybe I shouldn't have ended mine... maybe EOS and Wedge will be the only two forks that do finish.

Good for you! Go for it! You probably want to start with a few simple mods before you work your way up to the kind of major reworking you want of how posts relate to each other.

When the SMF team is asked to make a major change, they have to worry about the existing user base and what possible incompatibilities they'll introduce (not to mention, bugs). Users are strange -- many get upset with a major change in the way of doing things, even if you can justifiably argue that it's a better way. When you fork (whether starting one yourself, or joining up with someone who has the same road map as you), you don't have to be so concerned about compatibility and can go wild with changes.

I am quite determined on mine, so maybe 3 then. That some will disappear just means it wasn't enough time - or passion. Or both. :)
