Chit chat takes far less effort to write than code. I can make hundreds of posts a day, but hundreds of lines of code? Less likely.

I will note that most of the developers don't contribute to the "talk about it" because they are out there doing it...   so, your comment is just incorrect in its entirety
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.<br /><br />"Loki is not evil, although he is certainly not a force for good. Loki is... complicated."

I also think people don't understand what's actually involved with programming, they think it's as easy as just typing. Fun fact, I spent 8 hours at work programming, I fixed two bugs and changed something at a client's request, these things totalled 28 lines of code. Just over 4 lines of code per hour and yet I'm consistently considered one of the most productive people.

It really isn't easy to actually do this programming thing. I suggest those complaining about it give it a go sometime.

Exactly, it depends sometimes on a lot of factors, time, thinking of the issue, for me personally I am always pushed in many directions or people needing me to do something.

One thing about SMF that stands out on support forums - they talk a lot more about doing something than actually doing it. Wonder how many MB of Dev chit chat there are about 2.1 releases - if only it was code. Makes you wonder how much chit chat each line of software code represents.

It was probably toward anyone and everyone associated with SMF because he's impatient waiting for that next release of pure awesomeness.

Maybe that's what everyone thought. I thought of replying too but... There's better things to do. Like resting and having fun so you'll be able to write code better without stressing youself, or discussing doing things for when you have the time to do it ;D

If so, that'd be even sillier. You've posted so often here over the years because you've spent so much time helping people. To complain about that would seem... rather odd.

That sounds about right to me. Also, :D

Yep.

And I just noticed my comment was rather ambiguous. If it's for everyone, then each one of us is personally included, though some do post here more often, so...

To miss the fact some hardly even post here at all is also silly.

Time is relative online so many feel your time is theirs and what you dedicate your time to is the same as things they would. Coding things for 'free' usually is a work of love- people do not know the cost or time involved in these ventures. In other words, you are not human- you are not entitled to life, free time or pursuing your own needs and wants. You are just there for them, and them only. That is the modern interpretation of a username- the person that posts updates that meets your needs when you want it.

With all that said... let's hope that 2019 sees some good surprises for SMF 2.1 with a stable public release. ;)

I think OCJ was the one being rude, making such comments on the development team, apparently based on false assumptions made on the forum alone.

For anyone who has spent a little time here, it should be fairly apparent that actual development work is not really visible here, and one can't make assumptions like that on what they see here. Even github can't really show how much time and effort has gone in to each commit...

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

Hi,
I'm looking to resolve the mobile friendliness of my site. I'm running 2.0.15 with the responsive curve mod. Will this version do away with the need of a mod, and be responsive anyway? So is it worth me sitting back and waiting for the upgrade?
And how about other mods, will they be compatible with this version? And if not, are they automatically discarded on upgrade?
Thanks in advance
Pete

Arantor

Yes 2.1 is responsive, some mods will work with few or no changes, but all mods should be uninstalled on upgrade.

The package manager will frequently try to let you install things that aren't marked for 2.1 on the off chance they might work.

8  months and not release as yet?!


14 months since ANY update!!!


....... SMF is starting to look VERY dated these days and an 'elephant-in-the-room'  of missing features....   :'(

I don't know code, I don't know the difficulties... I'm just a consumer of SMF ...... for over 12 years!  :-[ :'( :'( 
That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

14 months since an update.....Me thinks you have not been to GH lately.

Two and a half lines of chitchat produced a whole page of  replies. Some people here are very highly strung - wasn't at all  like some people made it out to be. Of course I appreciate the difference between writing chitchat and code, and the hard work people put in - just doesn't seem so productive as a group here (but that's another story better left burried). Anyway, it was meant to be posted in another board, 'Old News and No Updates'.
