QuoteNot many. I never liked forums all that much, thought most just ate a lot of time. Ironic, I know. But I did like Simple Machines' Community. (unknown)
QuoteI would have not tried so hard to do everything. At first it was great, but in the end it became impossible - and there were always volunteers, but many weren't interested in filling shoes I'd been walking in.That said, I really think my mistakes were forgivable - I would've done much differently knowing what I do now, but that was my first time. Everyone has to learn somewhere, and things were still pretty good. That's a big part of open source to me.

Just curious......SMF staff consists of 100% volunteers. Sometimes RL (real life) and or other ventures require team members to step down for the team. (remember the bulk of SMF'ers admin/own one or more of their own sites) Some of our friends still stay active, but aren't able to commit fully to the team like they once did. Friends such as Douglas, groundup, Tippmaster, and Killer Possum, still are fairly active. KP still is a moderator here. (Just and example). The way I see the SMF community/ the SMF team, consists of everyone who contributes in some way shape or form to the project. The official badge is just a symbol of extended dedication. There are many regular members who have built some popular mods, popular theme(s) and continue to provide support of those mod/themes. They too help make SMF what it is Just my 2 cents
