Quote from: Road Rash on February 08, 2011, 09:17:29 AMMy apologises to those who have taken my post out of context and feel they have been attacked in some way. Not the case.I have nothing but praise and admiration for those who contribute productively to this great forum software. If I didn't think highly of it, I would not have invested my time in promoting it for the past few years. It's all to easy to misinterpret the typed word, or it's intent.I stand corrected on those points that clarified my misinterpretation of others posts and I thank you for that.

I expressed an opinion, answered your questions, and asked for clarification in response to your comments. Actually..while it may seem a long time, remember that 2.0 was a major rewrite of 1.1. Taking a stable version and changing large parts of code, not to mention the entire set of templates, took a good deal of time, 1-2 years just on that. Unfortunately past events(which I do NOT agreed was for the benefit of SMF, although it WAS good that the team leadership were exchanged) also delayed things with at least a year more.So your 5 years aren't really 5 years of real coding, more like 2-3 and the rest due to changing of team members, who had to re-learn the code, before they could create anything new. I can't find many members that was here when 2-0 was started, and that means the original "founders" of certain code parts are just gone.I see nothing surprising about this time-frame in that light, and I am - as should you and others, RoadRash - glad that we now indeed have a stable 2.0, with just minor bugs left to correct. What the future holds, no-one knows. But its up to US if SMF is to survive, the team can't just operate on its own, nor will they stay on if you bully them further.When have anyone ever done their best when getting scorn instead of praise..?
