Want to get involved in developing SMF, then why not lend a hand on our github!

QuoteWe support the baseline SMF here. Sometimes we can help with general questions on mods... but specific support for mods needs to come from the mod author.
Quoteyes fine but no one helps there lol...
Quoteand we do not support that mod in here....
QuoteMicrosoft wants us to "Imagine life without walls"...I say, "If there are no walls, who needs Windows?"
QuoteTheres also the fact that, we simply don't have the manpower to do this at the moment. Who's problem is this? Well, it is my problem mostly. There are a good number helping with support, but very few might be considered for a team position.
Quote[I do appreciate the support already given by smf'ers for my mods, and I'm sure other mod authors feel the same]
QuoteI can, in just a few clicks, find a number of 3PD communities that develop Xoops-related products. These have nothing to do with the Xoops team at all -- they operate independently offering Xoops modules/themes/extensions:
QuoteSo, the simple question is: What can Simple Machines do to help make your SMF-based 3PD projects grow?
Quotenightbre... Your complaint seems odd to me...
Quotethe problem is: Support questions for 3rd party things, (mods, themes or other expansions) do not belong in the SMF 1.1.x or SMF 2.x suppoort area.
Quoteand yes before you say the post was also in the wrong thread.
QuoteMost of all, why should the SMF team be responsible for supporting a modification? Isn't it complicated enough to support the numerous features and settings, along with everything that can go wrong with them during normal usage, not to mention installation, upgrading, moving, and converting the default software? Now you want to add knowledge of these mods and dedicated support for them?
QuoteThe current mods show how people are willing to help if they can and are allowed to.I see it as finding a balance where 3PD's can be discussed here and maybe some issues resolved but not to the point where SMF staff feel they have some active role to play.
