Can we form the big evil league now? What else do we need?

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

Gwenwyfar

No! Too much niceness to qualify.

Plus, we need something to show for our evilness.

Then again we have n the past had 2.0 RC 1-1 and 2.0 RC 1.2, both bad decisions that have haunted ever since.

I'm sure there was also a 1.0 beta 3.142 or something daft in the past too.

All that said though I think unfortunately the wait has been too long for me and I'm about the pull the trigger on Xenforo.

Their 2.1 release is quite something I have to admit.

Agreed. If SMF could incorporate that push notification system ...

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

The mod uses a third party service (OneSignal), XenForo does not.

SMF 2.1 has push notifications. Apparently unlike XenForo's, ours even work in Safari on macOS. (They don't on iOS, though, because Apple requires a completely different API for iOS push notifications.)
I promise you nothing.


Sesqu... Sesqui... what?

Unless you rewrote it when I wasn't looking, SMF has poll notifications... since I don't obviously see webworkers or anything that would work when you're not on the site with it open in a tab. If you did, great, but I don't see the tooling that would make that work.

Do you have any pyrotechnics spells? Count yourself in if so :D


... If not, still in anyway, because we need a c... *ahem*, an evil cat to make the team complete. We can hire someone else for the pyrotechnics >:D

That's a name I didn't hear before. What's the idea behind it being called "poll"?

Arantor

Because that's what it's doing: polling the server for updates via AJAX.

Gwenwyfar

I see. Might make more sense if you know exactly what that does, because poll still sounds like an odd word choice for a request of info :P

Arantor

Is it though? When you do the voting thing, you're asking for information. When you have a forum poll, you're explicitly asking other people for information.

Either way, it's not *pushed from the server* unlike XF's.

Is it better pushing than polling?
