The resistance is normal. I can understand their argument against adding a forum dedicated to a product which by all accounts doesn't even have a firm release date yet. Still, they added the forum in the end.
I suspect that XenForo is going to be swamped in both subscriptions and downloads in the first week of release. I foresee server downtime.
Yep and I know why, they think they are nothing special but they are, they are very talented and nice guys with some great background in forum software. Soooooo I am very surprised that TAZ even did a forum for it as well I'm surprised by the hype this early on. But I love this hype, will really show in sales upon release.
