Well... its been approximately a week now having XF, and from viewing my forums post count yesterday, in only a week my daily post count has now shifted to around 1200 posts per day. That is a strong member feedback from their increased posting and use of the site, all due to purely the software being used.
My expectations are that after a month, my daily posts are more around the 2500 daily range, and I will keep this post updated and report back in about 3 weeks as to whether this software reaches my expectations.
So far... it is. I expected it would take a week for many to get used to it, get past the shock of change, and then get into using the software... and members haven't let me down.
So... XF... this is a reflection of your softwares impact on my existing community, and discussion has now increased in one week near 400% just shifting from VB4 to XF software.
More and more impressed and happy with my decision to move platforms, in conjunction with the improved server load.
