    since when have you started developing xf? how many days it took you to make this fantastic script?

    It all started on a dark Christmas evening, the room lit by mere candle light and the sound of children singing carols outside in the snow ..

    But in all seriousness, I think they didn't start too long ago.

    Probably 6 months considering the experience they have.

    I'm sure they sat down for the first time to discuss the plans for XF the first business day after the NDA's and such expired :)

    Well the first time Kier mentioned it, was on January 1st this year. I wrote an article about it and posted it on vb-germany.com and then it came to vb.com (I wasn't quite THAT cheeky lol). So it must have been at least since then. Although, maybe back then it was only a concept - but I doubt that.

    I've been waiting for this for years lol :D My first thought upon seeing this was "Yay!" I think I actually squeed :D

    Considering the robustness, I would hazard a guess that it started the week after they said au revoir to vBulletin.

    Actually, knowing Mike and Kier, it was probably started about 2 weeks ago... Yep, that sounds right to me.

    I could say something about this and what should have, could have, or would have been, but I won't go there.;) All I can and want to say is, Way to go Kier and Mike! and the probably fast growing crew of XenForo. This will certainly stir up the paid forum software competition scene.:) I'm enjoying it already.:D

    Maybe just a few weeks after they left IB/vB.

    Remember Mike and Kier make it look easy, it isn't. I imagine long sleepless nights of coding have gone into this.

    A slick polished product such as this (that's only in ALPHA) doesn't happen overnight and if it did everyone would be at it.

    Yes, it's like any professional. Like athletes. They make doing their sport look so easy, but it really isn't. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, determination, discipline and a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get there. But in the end, that sort of passion pays off.
