    I know it's a bit premature to open this thread. Considering recent and not so recent staff departures from vBulletin, I thought it's worth to start discussing here whom we want to see in XenForo team [USER PROSPECTIVE WITH NO INTENTION TO INFLAME ANYTHING].

    I won't lie. I like the atmosphere of the old vBulletin. It feels like home.

    1. Scott Macvicar
    2. Jeremy Hutchings
    3. Freddie Bingham
    4. Jake Bunce
    5. Collin Frei
    6. Andy Huang
    7. Wayne Luke
    8. Steve Machol
    9. Zachery
    10. Lynne
    11. eva2000
    12. Floris

    and many other old team members


    Additionally,

    Mert Gökçeimam and Michael Biddle from vBSEO.com
    Brian from vBadvanced.com



    DISCLAIMER: The order in the list is random and not based on individuals' merits.

    wow that's quite a team. I have a feeling that big of a team would be a few years down the road.

    eva2000 mainly because I know the guy from around the net :) Just googled him to find out from which forums, and I found out he's had an anime forum for the past decade! wow!

    I laughed a little that Freddie wasn't allowed a surname (the word Bingham comes to mind? I'm not sure if it's related or if my brain is just throwing random words at me).

    I like Lynne a lot, she's a star on vBorg! Agree with this team here.

    Lets remember now; We don't want to go send job offers while their working with IB. It just low. If they quit or get fired off then we send them a deal :D

    They could try, but I don't think that will get them any where.

    Yep we all know what happened to.... What was it again? O yes vCrap 4.0.

    I'd love to see Calorie/Morgan in there too, Photoplog is hands down the best gallery for vB, and when she had the time/focus she provided some of the best support of all the commercial mod developers.

    I'd put Jake Bunce higher up the OP's list too along with Jerry... Good peeps both of them and only seem to get better with experience :).

    I wouldn't mind if Anders from IB joined the team :p. He's a good guy :)

    This is a really dangerous discussion that may not end well, discussing the relative merits of real individuals publicly.

    I don't know what is so dangerous about discussing people whose work we've known for many years. I don't expect negativity in this thread. But, maybe you are right. Anyway it's upto admins to allow it or not.

    No, I like how it currently is. Maybe some support staff once it's released. But that's it.
