QuoteAs I said, everything doesn't have to look like I'm using a mobile device. While it's nice to have when I'm on a phone, or a tablet, it's awkward and ugly and looks like Playskool toys on my desktop.

Is the next SMF roadmap going to include all kinds of fancy, gee-whiz, shiny things like Vanilla and NodeBB? Will there be a mobile version by default? Are the buttons going to be huge? Will all the text be gigantic and brightly colored?
