I like the simplistic approach w/ smaller footprint. But I'm a bit worried that many of the familiar forum UI components/features will be left out.
I DO want xenForo to be different but I also want it to make sense to my members.
Yes, I'm aware that adding the familiar forum UI components will add "bloat" to the software. However, I believe some kind of balance is needed to ensure a successful transformation (upgrade) from forum software X to xenForo.
I know it's too early but I'm really missing...
- status icons
- social bookmarks
- paid subscriptions (could be available just not enabled)
and I haven't even explored everything yet
