Dear developers, tell me when the release of this version will take place?
Yeah, ummm, about that. You're at the mercy of the people running that site. For all you know they could have opened or created backdoors to access info on your computer or from your browser without you knowing. Many track everything you do on their website and some possibly beyond it through cookies. The list goes on. But you really are at the mercy of that site, not Xenforo.Good point. Unlike Facebook, forum software like XenForo do not steal my privacy.
Clearly that's not what most people want with the decline of forums and the explosion of other social media outlets. 'Better structured discussions' is also not entirely true as I see many forums that are a hot mess of no structure with their discussions. Heck most people don't even look to see if previous threads on a topic exist recently, they just make a new one without looking. Many make posts that have nothing to do with anything.much better structured discussions
Depends on how you want to moderate your community.Heck a thread can be about Chris Hemsworth and the next thing you know it's talking about Ariana Grande and if Taco Johns is really Mexican food. So I definitely wouldn't say they have better structured discussions. lol
Then what makes it different when it's done on social media?Depends on how you want to moderate your community.
If you're in a living room with friends watching TV together, does a conversation not sometimes veer off like this? Why not let it on forums? If you don't want it to, move posts.
More control and ownership of content.Then what makes it different when it's done on social media?
And some developers release Alphas claiming they are gold. No particular companies mind but the initials MS are in my head for some reason.Yes, of course. But sometimes developers named "BETA" something that really is 99% ready. And sometime...is an Alpha version
