Yes, let's just keep the development hidden and not show any progress and then release it. Surely if people get bored with testing, they won't get bored by watching the developers say "well ... it's not done yet. sorry you can't see it."

Releasing any software without putting out betas for testing is not a good idea unless you want software with more bugs than features.

If you don't understand why this site is using it in a live environment, then why can you support your reasons for using it live?

HUH? You're saying that they shouldn't release betas because they only make people want to run it live, yet now you're saying they should because they'll get more users? :? And you're saying that people shouldn't be running them live, yet you're giving them support in fixing bugs?

ALPHA== INTERNAL CODE
BETA == TEST CODE
RC == NEAR FINAL
FINAL == FINAL


Therefore BETA is always Test quality, and therefore not suggested to LIVE usage, except by those who don't need SUPPORT. That means the administrators of those 100's of sites you seen have made a conscious choice to do something that isn't advised.


Also you should notice this boards description:
phpBB's testing ground of bleeding edge developmental code

If people want to use it on a live environment, then they're the ones taking the risk. Just don't expect to get any support from the phpBB team. You aren't paying for the software, so I don't see why you should be demanding anything :roll: Good luck fixing bugs with the knowledge you gathered from editing myspace profiles :mrgreen:
