Good luck.

On the subject of the 15.5 earthquake... Since that is a pretty big number (not picking you Kindred), impacts would definitely be felt in the EU/UK :p even if it did only hit the US. I suspect Tsunami's and other things would be easily triggered by it.. so HA.

Anyway, again good luck. It's good to see (?) some progress perhaps being made.
Pwned Europe, pwned. :D

Very glad to see steps being taken to get everything under control, and for things to be talked out calmly and peacefully. Seeing steps like this makes me happy, and safe in knowing that SMF is going to recover from this minor speed bump. :)

Though maybe I shouldn't speak so soon, but I trust the named people and I know their passion for the project will help see things through. After all, they all share a common interest. ;)

Though, if I may ask, how did these people (mainly from the SMF Friend's side) get chosen?

The reps on both sides were chosen by a vote. The team voted theirs, and friends and ex team members together theirs. :) Fair and open.

I always loved SMF for the professional manner in which it was handled.  I left for a while because I was trying to appease Joomla, but decided to drop those projects and come back.

I really hope differences can be set aside.  Good luck to you all.

I'm glad to see a little more transparency towards the public, if I'm honest. It's about time that happened.

Thank you for keeping the community updated on the situation. I hope you can reach an agreement that makes both parties happy, many of us are patiently waiting to hear the results.

I spend a great deal of time in "real life" as a negotiator. It is my job actually and I love it. Whenever two parties sit down in a room together face to face the results are usually positive. If they share at least some common goals and interests much can be accomplished. It is not uncommon to see integrity and decency replace contempt and discourtesy in the proper setting.

Having said that, I use to be a miserable failure settling disputes on my forum. The online world seems to push even decent folks into becoming very discourteous in a matter of seconds. We hide behind our key boards and feel a certain disconnect when it comes to others. I don't think it is intentional, but just the nature of online communications. At least that is what I experienced with my community forum.

I was able to make a change on my site which seemed to help. I actually picked up the telephone, got on Skype, used video chat, and when geography permitted, met some of my members in person. What a world of difference it made for our community. Did it solve all the problems? No. But for those that I knew had some desire to "compromise" it did make a huge difference.

I love this site. I love how complete strangers are willing to help you just because they want to. SMF is a community like no other. Of course there will be ups and downs, but as long as the core people (The SMF Team and Friends) want the community to succeed it will. I just hope that all (or most) of the people involved never lose track of what an awesome place you have created.

Thanks for all your years of great service and commitment to making SMF the best community on the Internet. I pray that both sides can find a way to work together for all of us!

I'm glad that what ever is going on is being handled maturely. Good luck with the disputes.

Amen! There will always be disputes and disagreements on the internet, just as there is in real life. It happens, nothing we can do about it, although things are always better, when dealt with maturely.

I'm reading this with Chrome, and your post breaks the page! Nothing shows up after it...

Code: [Select]
<blockquote>[12:13am] <%Jade> link me<br />[12:14am] <+orstio> <a href="Jade">link</a></blockquote>It breaks at the "< %". Which is, I believe, starter code for VBScript. I smell a SMF bug!

Yes, it's a bug with webkit renders :P

It works with Opera 10.50 too, that's why I specified Chrome ;)
