Any idea when the xenforo 2 will be available for download? Or should we just consider going with Nodebb?
Ok, I meant for actual usage, with upgrade/import and everything ... this is the presales forum, not the one for plugin developers.
Maybe because many people do not like the formatting of StackExchange/Discourse?
Yes, but is has no importer and no upgrade path. It's a recipe for disaster to start a real forum with it, and without much technical knowledgeIt is not just available for plug in developers at this point in time.
It's available in the "Customer Account" for all active licensed customers to DL so to advise new potential customers it is not available would not encourage them to buy into it.
You don't seem to know many forums, because that's exactly not how a forum works. A thread is no collection of semi-related posts that can be viewed in any order, or something like that, a thread is a conversation between people where each sentence has a fixed point in time, and won't make sense elsewhere.But doesn't the repetition bother the users. Like I've quoted you and you've quoted me. And lets say after 10 messages someone quotes this message. The conversation becomes disjoint where data is not structured properly..
The beginnings of Stackoverflow, where the vision what a tiny bit different (a "library" of google-able answers, not a personal support site for coding problems) was when many good programmers came and made good content. The fundings (risk capital etc.) and marketing of the company behind it helped much too.Also judging by the number of users Stack exchange has it doesn't seem people hate the interface. There are many coding forums - but stack exchange really stands out.
