When it comes to technology, Xenforo is still stuck on ajax calls to "emulate" live-updates, and limited because of the performance impact. gg PHP.Because its a forum software. Make it easier to find content but look elsewhere if you want to compete in a Q/A niche. I don't want this software to turn into bloatware just because someone wants to use it as a Stackoverflow or Facebook.
Crap? One of the things Xenforo was sold on when it came around now is crap?The last thing I want is to "social media-ize" a forum. Keep that crap out of our forums please.
The social features of XF came from one selling point for the software that IPB and vBulletin didn't had yet, to pretty much the most neglected features...
