Actually, they will... especially when they're the fastest page from the result set to be returned. Read: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/the-importance-of-mobile-performance-xf-designers-take-heed.122321/Amp pages won't have any more precedence over normal mobile friendly in search from what I've seen
Your site can be as quick as you "think" it is, for desktop viewing, but how does that stack up for mobile viewing? And then, how does your supposed quick mobile viewing stack up against the same page in AMP?If your sites already quick theres no point imo.
Ignorance is seems. AMP started with news pages. Google are now splitting their index into two sets, desktop and mobile. AMP now takes precedence in the new mobile only index for ALL pages that are the fastest. Any content can be delivered in AMP, you can make an entire design purely upon AMP if you want, however, to be shown in AMP results the page must validate AMP, which means the underlying software must cater every requisite for AMP to ensure that each page containing user generated content automatically adjusts (images, image size declarations, attachments handled correctly, blah blah) so the page can be listed in AMP results.unless you're news worthy
Again... ignorance of where something started, and where Google have now pushed it. Go research what Google have recently just done and their current stance on this. They even gave us a couple months notice before this happens.is forum content even news worthy? seems like more of a carrot that Google is dangling thats causing threads like these.

No problem here, Keep in mind you need a active licence from xfrocks to get support. The support given here on this forum is an extra for free and not if xfrocks is busy he doesn't always have time for that. If you have an active webmaster badge I'm sure he will get back to you.Not very good support for it though.
I don't know about a badge, but I pay for support on the forum there. I find with amp that all the images are huge and I cannot find a way to fix thisNo problem here, Keep in mind you need a active licence from xfrocks to get support.

What does HTML5 have to do with making a site fast? That is the silliest thing I've heard in a while. Let alone for a mobile device, being the purpose of AMP.because you haven't heard of HTML5 yet
Prior to Google deciding to split their index, I would have agreed with you. Now they're splitting it early next year... around 60% of my sites and client sites traffic is mobile... that will be a significant potential loss when Google are looking to load the fastest possible page versions for their mobile index, no longer comparing against desktop pages to decide which is delivered. Obviously no such issue for the desktop index.Just not sure it's worth the effort is all.
You should have a look at Progressive Web Apps and the power of service workers @digitalpoint They are really powerful. You can do amazing things with it.I didn't mean it as a comparison to performance, only that someone with a dated/old site hasn't heard of modern things. Could have also said it's good for people don't use Google because they haven't outgrown Lycos (also no relevance to speed).
It wouldn't be terribly difficult to AMP enable certain XenForo content types that are relatively static (like threads) with an addon. Just not sure it's worth the effort is all. You basically would be making a dumbed down version of your content that really isn't useable to your users (think like vBulletin's old "archive"). Then again, I don't see a point in a lot of things (for example I don't use sitemaps).
I'm all for "fast", but I'm not going to buy into the only servers that can be fast are Google's cache (AMP users never come to your site).
