    "We’ve had the opportunity to interview Mike Sullivan and Kier Darby from XenForo Limited, and ask them a few questions about their new company and upcoming forum product."

    And M/K, thanks again for your time! Much appreciated.

    We know they were busy, we had 15 to 25 good questions, but picked out those that wouldn't take too long for them to answer. We wanted them to focus on their project, and not get distracted by fan questions, they have enough of those on the forums :p

    Nice interview, Floris!

    I was really impressed when Mike and Kier responded that they can add a feature in less than an hour between the two of them. That is team-work! :)

    thanks for sharing Floris ;)

    just a tip put the disqus plug-in onto your blog ;)

    I tried both disqus and intensedebate, and they added 2 full seconds to the page load. Unlike my other blog, but I can't fix it, so turned it off.

    Nice insight but sadly not too much in-depth infos ;)
    But keep your good work ongoing Floris.

    That's on purpose, so we did not force them to spend an hour writing out questions :)

    Then they should hire some PR-people. Maybe Mike's girlfriend is interested :D

    I don't know what her skills or experience is regarding public relations.

    @ Kurtz:

    I've gone through the IntenseDebate source code and tweaked it. The lag should now be gone and logging/posting via twitter, facebook, wordpress, openid, or intensedebate is now possible and shouldn't have a slow down as well.

    I use disqus and I would be interested to learn what you did to tweak the code

    I think you'd be in a small minority of people who would rather hear from a XenForo PR department rather than the developers themselves.
