Wondering if this will always be free? See why free is better.

QuoteIn my opinion, SMF should just support MySQL, or have the option to select their database type on the installation.
QuoteAll old browser support should be dropped, such as IE6
QuotejQuery is most definitely in the future of the web, it is highly extensible and at the same time lightweight. If for no other reason, it should be included on a boolean variable for mod authors to enable if their mod uses it.
QuoteIn my opinion, the default theme should also contain some nice attributes that CSS3 has to offer.
QuoteI believe the Calendar should not be a core-feature. I think it should be removed from the SMF Core, and completely re-written to have an AJAX/jQuery fancy interface, provided as an official addon/modification
QuoteI believe bloated profile fields as "MSN" - "ICQ" - "AIM" - "YIM" should be removed. With the addition of Custom Profile Fields in SMF 2.0, why provide some fields, but by no means them all? What about Skype, Google Talk, Facebook? I think it's much better to remove all un-necessary fields but allow them to be added easily through Custom Profile Fields. You could even have "Custom Profile Field Templates".
QuoteThe memberlist should be configurable through the admin panel, with different two different listing styles. Block / List
QuoteThe buddy list is very limiting, and practically useless. This should be moved to an actual database table, and the features expanded.
QuoteThe profile sections of SMF are lacking, and very behind today's technology and social aspects. Inline editing, more social such as visitor messages / comments / notifications / etc.
QuoteRecaptcha to replace SMF's default captcha?
QuotePersonal Messages should definitely have the ability to include attachments.
QuoteYES +100 DEFINITELY!! Just think of everything that could be replaced: rooundeed corners, gradients, zebra-striping.
Quote.-1. It can and should be improved. Maybe then it'll get what it deserves...
QuoteI feel this one to be shot down if only because it relies on a third party service if I recall correctly. Why not include Bad Behavior and decrease the default captcha to easy and remove complicated levels starting from high? Maybe then less people would complain about the "horrible captcha". Signed, a user who has a hard time solving these puzzles.
