You must be new here . As someone who has been on XF since the beginning, this communication style isn't anything new. These threads ALWAYS pop up, they have for the past 10 years.
Are we allowed to talk about xf development without the risk of the thread being closed? I noticed your allowing talk of vb5 development and bashing a competitor so I'm assuming it is okay to discuss xf development with members keeping everything civil towards one another? So - Any news on the...xenforo.comXenforo 1.1 released! :) http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-1-1-0-released.23605/ What do you hope will make it into version 1.2? I'm looking forward to user albums, user blogs, CMS, and other payment gateways (like Authorize.net or ClickBank) for premium memberships. What do...xenforo.comSummer is over, after waiting for pretty much over a better half of year I wonder when 1.1 will be available. We still run vb 3.8 and after being patience for years, I begin to regret I just didn't move to different non-forum web site.xenforo.com*Mods edit* As per this post we will use this thread to keep all discussions of a similar nature contained to one topic. Note any and all attacks as well as off topic posts will be removed. */Mods edit* I absolutely love xenforo:) , but as rumors about serious problems at xenforo´s do not...xenforo.comThis thread will be used to discuss the recent XenForo announcement.

(some of these were from the litigation times, but they still pop up almost every release cycle)
A few things I know:
1.) The second 2.3 HYS's come, this thread becomes irrelevant as with the others for the most part (not saying there isn't valid feedback here, but people won't care as much).
2.) Someone will post "where's 2.4" the day 2.3 is released as a joke but eventually turns semi-serious.
3.) XF has a rock solid platform to build a community on CURRENTLY.
Could they be more vocal in the community? Sure. Am I looking forward to the first HYS? Absolutely.
I wondered how long before an old timer posted the classics. You and I both know you've likely missed 10+ other threads....lol
Like you said, EVERY release this happens, starts as a joke then slowly builds up until one of these posts appear. It's literally clockwork. All I do is lurk, and I can gauge within a month or two when these threads will start appearing.
I only stay here at XF because I appreciate what the team does. Not much interaction with Kier, but plenty with Mike (good and... eh, bad....lol), tons with Chris. And a ton with Brogan. I respect the hell out of those guys. I do think if something happens that has been highlighted here (sold, people leaving, etc), we would have been told already. Besides a "roadmap" that is always demanded (and the XF team has clearly stated there will not be one) , they've been pretty upfront with the customer base here. The only issue I really see, is XF has put itself in a corner. They've built by far the best software, and you have rabid custoner base who always wants more, no matter the timetable. And to beat it all.... the time frame is never good enough.
Hell, if I'm Kier, Mike, Chris (can't add Brogan, he's a robot with no emotions) I put 98% of the site on mute. Some here are relentless.
I do agree with OP on one thing... I have had enough with the COVID/pandemic excuses. It's overplayed. Stop using that as a catch all excuse. Half you tools wore a mask thinking it would stop a microscopic droplets or particles from getting to you...
Either way. Enjoy your day guys.
Russ, keep it real. Glad to see you still slaying it.
I almost forgot @Slavik ...
He and I never see eye to eye (usually cause I'm being an ass and he has a job to preform) , but I respect what he does as well. He's also a key contributor to the success of XF.
