It isn't the same but I still want more. Clone Topic and Post Karma can be standard, at least I wouldn't have to miss around with them anymore, lol.  ;D

Nend, why would those be standard? They are not things that the normal, general forum would find useful.

bulls fan, a bug fix release would be a minor release. I.e. 2.0.x
There are a fair umber of changes in 2.1, even other than the template.

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

lol
Then I'd have few features to add me too. O:) :P

Just because I'm picky: 2.0.x would be a micro release. ;)
2.x a minor and x.0 a major. O:)


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

There would be a point - it could have resolved some minor update like a bug update release a la vBulletin style.

That would be 2.0.3, not 2.1. ;)

And I don't think Post Karma should be a standard feature. TBH, I don't even think the whole karma system should be standard. IMO it's a waste of code.

Can't ever see me using Clone Topic either.

Don't know, have tried them all and SMF is the best for me. and the 2.1 looks like the right move so far as I can tell, allot of things are nice to have but not needed. If you have something good, it's best to just make it stable/secure and a little more flexible, if possible, and if something is not broken , don't fix it.

It's not a forum (only) ( it's Not a Blog only) but it is as I can see the most versatile community system out there, that portals and mods can be added on. I feel if you change things too much you may screw up and already good thing. ( i have seen this forum system used in so many ways already)!

I don't know how everyone feels, can not possibly know, but if I visit A vbull site I know as soon as the pages opens, if I visit a wp I can usually  tell right off, and so on and same goes for most.

If The SMF team sticks to a solid base and makes some improvements on the way of looks and feel (or features) fine, but after you have a Kick butt system and great foundation to build on these are more important, to me anyway.

Some of the other systems out there are very  hard for the topical user to navigate how to set up and use the system just to find it still does not do what SMF can do :) some you need a webmaster to set-up run and maintain!

Not to mention the fact that some themes are and look better on SMF that some have done, and are working on as we speak.

Again I like to say you are doing great, and please don't get distracted trying please everyone, cause it will never happen!

and Thanks!

regards,
Maxx

Same thing. All it does is encourage rep-whoring.

IMO, maybe we need to discuss future of Karma, removing it from SMF (not in 2.1 but maybe in 2.2 or even 3.0) and make it plug-in then we can see how many people actually needs & using it.

Removing features from a software, would be pretty odd.

Cool. Let's keep the legacy code to support IE4.

This is the same as messenger (MSN/YIM/AIM/ICQ) part, its also removed from core in SMF 2.2 (It transferred to custom profile). S in SMF means Simple remember :) (well i'm not a developer or never became one but one thing i learnt here, keep things simple). We are not in 1940 supply not creating its demand, demand changing supply.

Yes. Keep it more clean and simple (until we do not have anything fun? Just kidding). Those who like it, may add it. That is simple too.

based on the link given earlier in the thread,
hxxp:www.uofreeshards.net/index.php?board=52.0 [nonactive]
I give a critique:
I really like the current "curve" theme, the new theme IMHO looks kind of bad compared to Curve.
I think the theme has too much white and the blocks are kind of...floaty.
colors and placement are a bit harsh and awkward,I think.
the new theme doesn't really feel like the classic SMF style that is identifiable and easy to use.
I'm kind of disappointed to be honest.   :'(

I don't want to sound rude, this is just my observation,please forgive how this post may come across as I have difficulty with expression of my thoughts;sometimes.    :-[

No default theme, or no custom theme for that matter, is ever going to please everyone. People can do their own thing if they don't like the default. :)
