Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

I do not think whatever speed (or lack thereof) other OSS projects may display is relavent. Olympus development is proceeding, and that is obvious by the commits. ---------- If you would like to criticize the method of the release (which is to put together a very large featureset and release seldom...

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

I've not used vB or IPB, but tell me where in SMF one can manage what search engines can see, without lumping their permissions in with unregisterd users? Oh, wait, you can't. How about allowing unregisterd users to post, but making it so that all their posts are in a moderation queue and won't app...

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

Look carefully at phpBB3. There are some features in it even vB doesn't have, like the level of permissions control. Not true. I use boards of all kind - phpBB (I've used Olympus CVS AND 2.0.12), vBulletin, Invision, SMF - and their permissions levels are all equal. phpBB3 has a modular ACP, MCP an...

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

I want AJAX for two things: fast-posting and inline editing. Plus, once it's a feature, other AJAX mods can be made. (A great example of how this can work is vbulletin's RPG Inferno. Version 3.0 at gzevolution.net is the coolest mod ever, and all because of AJAX.)

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

So... now you're arguing that just because they don't listen doesn't mean you should act like your way is best. This from the person who attacks people based on saying what THEY think is best. Paradox, anybody?

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

Then again, most people arguing against it make it obvious that they don't know what they mean by AJAX... ;)

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

I know I'm from the proverbial devil's camp, but I support freeware, and I'm giving the view from the other side. Sorry if I bug you guys! ^_^ Well, freeware and vB. I'm sorry, was I unclear? I support GOOD programs first, followed by freeware. I currently use Drupal, for example, for my CMS, since...

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

Ah, but I DO use vBulletin, you see. I just WISH I could switch to a more open bulletin board: they DO seem to be sadly lacking, which is what I am posting about.

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

Then I'd say that ACCEPTING donations would be the next obvious step. It doesn't *beep* us off, you know, and it will help you. The users that don't want a lot are in the definite minority. And either way, just let 'em disable what they don't want. I know I'm from the proverbial devil's camp, but I ...

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

It has been said already but it bears repeating: AJAX came into it's own around a year ago, after the project was underway and feature request was closed. In a development cycle, you do not add features while underway. Yes, development has taken longer than expected but that doesn't mean phpBB devs...
