Menalto Gallery 1 was lean and mean.I have used BuddyPress.org for the past and have been active within that community for over a year.
Guess what happened then ?
All webmasters realised only later on that they have troubles with the software and a hard time to use and customize it. So webmasters got very angry and complained about all the confusing features build into it: webmasters complained: "why did you build a kitchen sink ?"
Menalto Gallery 2 is a massive beast with so many features stuck on that it grinds web servers to a halt if you turn everything on.
Guess what Menalto Gallery 3 is?
