I don't understand what the big deal is, if it bothers you that much, think of SMF as YaBB SE 2.

True. you could even apply the Classic YABB SE Theme and people would never see the difference, visually at least...

Actually I am not bothered at all - as long as I have an easy upgrade I don't care if it is yabbse or smf (or any other forum with similar functionalities).
But I can understand that some people might be  worried about the future of their highly modded yabbse boards......

Anyway, I am waiting for the public launch of SMF to have a look 8)

Well - considering several popular MOD's are included into SMF and nearly all other big mods were written by people who are either members of the development/mod development team or are forum members here I expect to see most big MOD's to come out fairly soon (hell there are even about 10 MOD's available in the charter area)

...All of our forums run YaBB but we can not bother doing development work until we see what simple machines will do.   There is no way we can see if we wish to stay as we are or go for the change and the delay after delay is really just not acceptable...

one way you can see what SMF will do, is by perusing this forum, and testing it's features.  for admins, from what i've heard, it's highly customizeable through features like "the new template system", so that you may not need all kinds of mods to get what you want out of it. 

in the mean-time, i'm still hacking away at my 1.5.4.  any experience you get from that will benefit you in the long run.

Okay, one of the big differences between YSE and SMF is the themes. This is a big generalization but imagine going through all of YSE, and taking out the html and page code, and moving it to a theme directory, and giving people the option of which directory to pull the html from. next, fix all the big security holes in YSE, and add a permission system that is more powerful than any other forum software out there. Those are just some generalizations of what has changed, but its like comparing a Playstation 2 with a Playstation. The pieces are compatible but its the new stuff thats really impressive.

Hi there! I'm really excited to try out the beta. I signed up for the charter membership yesterday. Just wondering how long it takes to get added so i can download the new forum? ;)

pulpitfire

it takes only until Jeff manually updates you, and that varies, depending on when he is online, etc.

Sorry for anyone waiting a long time lately, the notification emails haven't been coming through. If you end up waiting a day just PM me and I can flip the switch for anyone.

how can I get a picec of the source code of SMF

Chris Cromer

Well there are 2 ways... buy a charter membership... or wait for it to be released to the public.

Either that or I would to say know a developer or admin here or something like that. ;D

Hey gang - I'm the new kid here and still relatively uninformed.  I have yabbse and since it is for my business, decided it was smarter to move to SMF for the long term.

I signed up for a charter membership but cannot seem to find the download.  Help a gnoob out will ya?

Sorry man, not quite.  But at least it's an explanation... nothing I can do right now to fix it, though.

GameDemand

Well I saw that but I got a letter acknowleging payment so I kinda figured the download stuff was just buried somewhere.  I dropped a note to Jeff though since thats what he says to do in that thread.

As Jeff is Canadian and does each charter activation my hand, you can probably expect it to be activated in about 4 to 6 hours (because thats when he will be waking up)... of course that is providing he does it when he wakes up... but it shouldnt be too long anyway.

Hope you enjoy your charter membership ^^

Hmmm...

Time since last Charter Member Release: 24 days
Time until YaBB SE board closes: 22 days

So, since SMF will be out before the YaBB SE board closes (most likely several days before then), I would say that SMF should be here sometime in the next week or two... :P
