    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.

    This is incredibly insightful and I agree wholeheartedly.

    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.

    Yoohoo! Over here! :D

    I thought we had a new mod then, your new avatar completely threw me :confused:

    We were testing the feature I just rolled out - news feed publication of avatar changes :)

    I just posted on your profile about that :D

    I thought it was new.

    I am baffled why people would want to be alerted when people change their avatar?

    ha, gotcha!

    Oh but I still am... ;)

    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.
    m0o0oeh, wizzard and Nick like this.

    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?
  18. Brogan

    Brogan XenForo Moderator Staff Member

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

    100% good move for new avatar on 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. :)
