Some folks at SMF took the software and forked it since they changed their license. Then they posted their screenshot wanting some feedback. I told them they where using to many icons(49 just on a post display). They got all defensive and told me to go fork my own software.
See, Mike and Kier is cool, because you can leave feedback or constructive criticism and they won't bite your head off. They listen to you and tell you if they agree or disagree, and why.
Although, I feel like I'm beating my head against the wall here searching for the perfect community software. XenForo is the best in my opinion(by god the fastest), but is a long way from being mature enough to manipulate to people's needs, or at least my needs. Not without spending thousands of dollars. If it wasn't for Jaxel and his mod's, I don't think as many people would be using it as there is now.
However, there is no doubt that within a year from now, all web developers will know XenForo's name. It will probably be as popular as wordpress. I just wish other communities was as cool as this one. Not so much ego flying around by the developers and its user's.
I always find myself coming back to for a breath of fresh forum air...
