2 years really isn't that long for a piece of software like this though.

Especially when you consider that the developers receive no sustenance from this.

Listen, we all may feel a little upset about the slow state of affairs. But you are free fork the project if you believe that you can accelerate it, or indeed switch to an alternative solution.

In fact I'm quite happy now because of this slow development. I am now a reseller for my country of one of paid forums and I must thank the developers of phpBB that they let me make some money this way. My business will be less successfull if Olympus was released until now. So, I might be the only one who is happy with this situation :mrgreen:

Hmm... this thread said it had a new post, but I didn't see any when I clicked it.

EDIT: BAH! :lol: God bless that "Foe" feature.

No, you don't get my point. I don't WANT to switch to SMF. I love phpBB, but it's going to end up that I have to just because the development is so slow.

It's amazing how hostile the phpBB community is to suggestions.

I was merely suggesting Paul and the other developers should try to speed it up. They themselves know it's going slow and it doesn't have to be that way. I'm not saying they should quit their day jobs, I'm saying maybe they should expand the development team so more people can work on it. I also understand why Paul is hesitant to expand the team, but it's getting to the point that the forum is basically un-usable to many people, such as me.

I don't know why I even bother, some hothead is just going to respond again and call me an idiot. :roll:

That would be a horrible idea. I downloaded SMF and installed it...OMG! Slow!

Do yourselves a favor...be happy with what the phpBB team has already given you with 2.0.x...and be patient with the next versions release.

They completely re-did everything. They wanted to get it right from the start. And remember, IPB and VB charge you...SMF is slow...and nothing really compares to phpBB.

Guys, enough. This is not the place to attack either other software or each other. If you carry on, I'll lock the thread. I'm not sure it's really going anywhere anyway.
