:P . Obviously.
Anywho, Curve looks nice.  Once I get it, I might edit some colors I like into my forum.

Yeah, it's not a complaint but rather pointing out that a product aiming to international market would not sport something like the hammer and sickle because it may not be a good marketing move. Same here, when I logged in on the forum where I am a member with Curve theme installed, the first thing I noticed on the forum index was a long column of those "sabbatical" icons, LOL. And I thought, the forum has really been converted.  ;D

Hey guys, i just discover that the new SMF have 63 tables while 1.1.10 have 51 that's 12 tables more...

I was thinking that the new release will have less tables.

:D Kenny, you are confusing html tables with database tables. 2.0 has less of the former and more of the latter compared to 1.1.x.

That's because the world is controlled by the Elders of Zion and we at SMF are their devoted minions. :P

Take it away, conspiracy theorists.

I am absolutely sure it was NOT a desirable effect, so please knock this ... off.

And how about adding a built-in enable/disable system for mods? This will help also when getting errors that cause serious problems to the forum; if SMF notices that something doens't work properly, automatically (or prompting an advice that invites to) disables that mod (like wordpress, that imho has one of the best plugins system)! :D

Don't know if it would be too difficult to add, maybe for the next major release... :P

The mod system is not the same with a plugin system. They both serve the same purpose: extending the functionality of a base software, but do it differently.
As said above, you can't really disable mods (unless the mod itself is written to provide some way, but then it's nonstandard anyway), as long as they are exactly that: mods, that is direct modifications of code. If they were separate components as far as implementation is concerned, that would be possible.
However, switching SMF to a modular design at that scale (and switching mods to a  different kind of extensions) is unlikely to happen any time soon (meaning years, if ever). In a sense, as explained by Nao, it's a different way of writing the software to be extensible. One way consists in allowing direct modifications of the code itself (mods), and being optimized for it, while the other consists in plugging in various external extensions. (plugins, or whatnot)
SMF is, and for all I can tell, will most likely continue to be, a medium sized piece of software which can be extended by modifications to get the wanted result with minimum hassles. It has a certain degree of modularity (by its template subsystem and a few others) and it is still small enough for a fair part of it to be fully understood, thus allowing easy modification.

We might see higher degrees of modularity of SMF in the future indeed, as the software grows, but personally, I highly doubt they will consist in implementing a totally different concept of its packages system. (rather, it's continually being improved and will most likely continue to be).
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.

You know what would be amazingly useful? If someone who is running SMF2 could start maintaining an ongoing list of mods for SMF1 that are no longer necessary due to new built-in functionality of SMF2. Would greatly reduce the amount of research those of us with lots of mods need to do as we prepare for an SMF1 -> SMF2 upgrade.

Thanks in advance. ;)

It was a joke. Seriously though I know what conspiracy theorists are like. They only have to spot one stray comment online and they'll be off and running. I would not be at all surprised if the rumour about SMF being controlled by shady Jewish organisations was doing the rounds in under a week once somebody read your post about the icons looking like they had Hebrew text on them.

The simple truth of the matter is that the font used for the text becomes unclear at that scale, as is common with most fonts. This means it does not look quite how you might expect it to look. Also bear in mind that Bloc is not English and may well have not originally written the icon text in English. It doesn't matter as it is purely representational in this context.

Check the 5 o'clock news tonight! I just sent both of these comments to every news agency in the world! LOL (JK, if you hadn't figured that out yet)

No but really, when I looked at the icon, all I saw was a bunch of squiggly lines that could represent writing.

I fail to see why you're writing this to me. I didn't say I don't understand why it could happen, I was merely sharing my impression on the result. I was not implying anything, and there was no need to label me, especially without knowing me. I am in fact don't know a single conspiracy theory that I like, and, moreover, I am Jewish.

Not when you have lots of big new features like the warning system, custom profile fields, etc. The devs have done a good job of optimizing things and new tables/columns are only added when necessary.

Because our own main forum uses its own theme, which - like all other themes - needs revisiting for Curve compliance.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

cool I"ll be sure to pick up a copy.
But really I think I've become obsessed with SMF latly because I work with alot of forum owners and most of them love phpbb and I hate installing mods on it. T_T It makes me cry...
... so painful and their auto installer is like beta and more crying.
I love you SMF for making it so much easier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
