Well... I don't see innovation in XF lately. It's like you're trying to amuse the masses by adding popular add-ons. They already exist... so you aren't bringing new things to the table. The responsive admin panel is the only creative aspect in 1.5.
Kier brought innovation to XF time and again... hence my question, as it seems to be lacking the Kier flare.
I understand some XF team may be upset by this, but it doesn't make it any less true.
