I just said that because it's like you have to repeat just about everything you say.

Arantor

Oh, yes, that's a recurrent thing. Combine a modicum of OCD, with the inherent and ongoing feeling that no-one understands me the first few times I say anything... yup. It sucks.

ApplianceJunk

It's not a bad thing. Just find it entertaining sometime and other times I find it helpful because I may not understand myself until you say it a second or third time. Most of the time I get it the first time around, but not always. :D

I personally find it rather a burden to have to deal with. Far too much, more often than not.

The problem, my cookie-eating friend, as often as not, is that you need a translator.
You do your best to speak precisely, using the best words you can find for the job.
Frequently though, your audience doesn't understand, because they are not familiar with how your words should be understood in the context you use them.

Often because they are not devs themselves.  Sometimes because they are relatively new to everything "forum", or even everything to do with starting up a web site.  Sometimes, because English is not their first language.  It is almost impossible to guess, the first time you communicate with someone, what they know and don't know.  So it is always difficult to make oneself understood the first time through.  Frequently, coming at the same explanation from a slightly different angle will do the trick of supplying whatever context the reader didn't have the first time through. Or will get the reader's brain to make connections between things he or she already might have known but had not really understood.  Or -- who knows?

Communication is often challenging.

Ah jeez. I have some reasons to update and not to update to SMF 2.1 when it releases.

Why I want to update are the major improvements. To the editor as well.
But the reason, why not, is that without a doubt a TON of mods will break. And I might have to wait a long time before they get updated.

Mods that uses hooks will still be largely supported, those who made source files edits only also would be largely supported.

This high compatibility actually turns out to be a burden, for us, not for you.

Its not 1.1 > 2.0 thing, you'll be surprised ;) I'm running live 2.1 site currently with some mods, i can't say they all working w/o touch but they are working (I had to made some changes on install files).

Please remember, we do not support or courage our users to run alpha/beta products on their live sites due to daily changes and possible bugs.

I say make all the changes you need.  Holding on to the past will not give us the best software.

1) Planned (but by a former developer so it needs bit discussion maybe :P)
2) Probably not
3) Sorry there is no

For mobile themes, there is this app called TapATalk. Maybe an integration into SMF?

Thinking out loud.

there is already a mod for tapatalk...

It is - however - not a mobile theme...
(and it requires payment, which is an issue)
(and there are several things that interact badly between tapatalk and other mods)
