I'm not debating that forums are or aren't a social network, but rather if a timeline is or isn't (isn't in my humble opinion) an aspect of a social network. The only reason I even brought it up was because someone said that's like making things more social network-like, which I was simply asking how when all it really would be (as far as this thread) is a different way of presenting information that is already available/used on an xenForo forum.PLEASE do not let us get into another BORING debate about whether a forum is a social network.
Some are, some are not.
XF does an excellent job of spanning the spectrum of needs here.
Please don't attacvk other admins who have a different kind of forum to yours. That just makes you look small minded and silly. Stick with what suits you, fine, but accept that might not be what suits everyone.
