I'd like to just see 2.1 finished up and go from there...yes there are many things that can be improved on any given project, but I think for me anyway that, the current step needs to be completed for, for considering other stuff. I like both and many points of view and many things can be accomplished , like forks and mods and widgets or add on or themes. I'm not partial to any of these.

I like SMF and the 2.1 alpha me not be what everyone wants, but it must be completed it in what ever its needs to secure where it meant to go at this point, as far as security and bugs, the other stuff maybe, brought up in the next version. hell I want to start using the 2.1 now for my live site, not a coder, but can't that much wrong with it as for functionality, and like I said  Wedge and other possible projects can do nothing less to help it along, Someone needs to make derision! without getting hung up on trying to please everyone at this point anyway. I love all this stuff and will support it all in anyway I possibly can, but I'm getting old fast and you youngster will see the year past by fast, and I'm talking 10 0r 20 years at a time.

talkers and the doers always the same.

I'm learning more and more everyday at the age of 64, and you young guys have all the talent and knowledge to get these thing accomplished and I know you all can get it done!

cooperation is missing out some where out there LOL! :}

I've been using these forums for 8 years and I finally learned to compose my longer posts in an external text editor. But today I had several things going on, I was making lunch, I was in a hurry to respond, and I deleted part of Arantor's quote in my post. I then clicked the back button and refreshed looking for something and what I wrote up was gone.

So, I just thought of something I didn't know I "needed" - automatic real-time post backups.

maxg

yes an auto save would be nice!

SMF 2.1 + 2 forks have this.

Arantor - I just lost 15 minutes of typing of my response. I'm sorry. I'll try to write it up again later but right now I'm to aggravated.

You see, you want a new feature, while I solved the issue learning to post short answers. :P


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

That's why I use the Lazarus plug-in for Firefox ;)

Yes indeed.

Unfortunately, on my forum short answers are few and far between.

Now she tells me! OK I'll take a look at this plug-in, thanks.

It's long time to get new news. Wake up dudes! When we can test SMF 3.0 ???

Arantor

There is no such thing as 3.0, only 2.1 which is currently in development.

Believe it or not, but when we make it!

Also, every time somebody whines about how long it takes, the date gets another week added to it.

Now you're just mean. :P

Arantor

No, not mean, just reinforcing the notion that complaining about it is about the worst thing to do.

Your PR perspective is a bit wrong. But who am I to complain about it, eh? :)

Arantor

Complaining at the speed of development isn't going to *change* anything.

Of course not. That's the right way of doing things. (Except for those quotation marks.)

If you want to speed up development, you can always help. If you don't know how to code but have spare web space, start testing the code and reporting bugs you find in the development tracker. Make sure you write a good bug report. (More information on writing good bug reports here, here, and here.) Of course, look to make sure your bug hasn't been reported so you don't file a duplicate.

If you are unsure how to set up your own testing environment, then just offer help to the community by supporting people. Helping lower the load of the forum team will give them more time to focus on development, or just a well-deserved rest.

Writing complaints on slow development only takes away time from those that are trying to develop the code or support the community.

if you wanna speed up the development, you can pay for the charter membership so the team can pay the developers for a full force development :D

yes then and only then it will speed up :P

and probally we need more charter members ;)
