Is it just me, or do we all here feel as though we're actually being listened to.

IB's stock price doubled after the release of vB "Gold" (sic, sick) in December and the resultant end of the year bump in revenue due to the license sales.

There was quite a good series in the UK called "Ban the Boss" that covers many of the topics of why you should dispense with the role of management, and how the people who actually do the work are far more qualified to make decisions and run the show, his blog is here.
This is incredibly insightful and I agree wholeheartedly.

Matt & charles from IPB are a prime example of two owners who have maintained interaction and dialogue with their customers. I could not speak highly enough of these two and I think this is down to they don't have to answer to the executives/owners. They can be straight forward and honest not hiding behind the poor decisions that the money cats make but they would have otherwise need to (how can I put it) BS there customers by deploying tactics that give customers next to no info resulting in broken down communication, dialogue, promises etc.

Same rule with Kier and mike. They are the owners this time around. They are the developers. It's in their hands and I personally think they will maintain a healthy strong relationship with their customers. Afterall, happy devs and team can naturally bond with their customers, just like IPB (matt and charles) and it doesn't feel fake when they do. That's the way I see it. it worked for matt and charles and I'm sure it will work for Kier and mike it's in their best interests.

Ps. I talk too much.
Shelley,

I completely agree with you. Just pointing out that when vBulletin was first announced it was just like this. Lots of euphoria etc. Good communications from the outset. I too hope that the team here maintains this level of interaction throughout the entire life of the Company they are building.

Yes, I have left IB & vB if that is what you are thinking.
That was part of what I was thinking yes. Does that mean that XF might get a new Dev on the team with import specialisation?
You have always come across as extremely knowledgeable and seems like XF will have a lot of imports from vbulletin.

Mike has already written a vB importer.

Thanks, when it comes to imports yes I've done a few .......... and yes I dare say there will be a lot of vB imports.

I am baffled why people would want to be alerted when people change their avatar?
We use the avatar as the primary means of identifying members with XenForo - hence why the username is so de-emphasised on the unit next to messages.

Therefore, it is useful to be notified if someone's avatar changes so that you know that you should not expect to see the old familiar graphic.

Kudos. I like it. It gives XenForo a feeling of a social networking site.

I love the thought that is going into each and every detail of XenForo, no matter how big or small. :cool:

Fresh thinking!

But then I hope it does not work when the user already has a custom Avatar? I mean, what is the purpose of getting an alert from someone who just happens to change their Avatar on a weekly basis? Why does one need to be alerted on that?

It's not an alert.
It just appears in the news feed.

Well, that's what makes XenForo unique, and I can see how successful XF will be in the future if they keep doing things this way. :)
