...and elk is too young and there are too many cooks in the kitchen IMHO. Thus, they spend most of their time fixing bugs.
Development philosophy - just because our developers don't do it in wedge way that doesn't mean its wrong...
Try vbulletin then it has more features inside it, I'm sure you love it!
Refactoring the whole core to OOP / MVC isn't a simple task and will most likely produce some bugs.
Meanwhile we have standardized the action controllers,
most of them are free of database queries and use api functions instead for the "low-level" tasks (database queries, file manipulation and so on.)
And we have also added lots of cool new features :cool: Post by E-Mail, OpenID 2.0, Likes, Spoiler & Footnotes BBC, Gravatars, improved admin and antispam security, drag & drop for sorting boards, custom profile fields and smileys, Video Embedding, Quote to new topic, disregard topics, and much much more..
Also, do you really think that the other forums are showing all their stuff for no reason?
They are getting more and more input from the community, and not just their little private community.
Yes, there are some reasons not to use something like GitHub, and I for one can not fault you that.
However, saying that one is better than any other, when none of them are truly out there is being too full of oneself and being conceited.
Wait until they are out there, for the general public to use and judge. Then we all will see which is best, in the view of those who count: The users.
If you're evaluating software quality through its number of users alone, I can tell you which forum system is the best: vBulletin. Ah, ah. Very droll. ::)
And we have also added lots of cool new features :cool: Post by E-Mail, OpenID 2.0, Likes, (...)
If instead of being against each other, SMF and forks, should be working together on main issues and features.
And what's the point of going OOP/MVC..?
Wedge uses OOP where it makes sense. Does Elk do that?
Yup, I just registered on your board to test that. Got a timeout after returning from my OpenID provider instantly. Now that's a cool feature! I had to use the password-based authentication.
Guess I should fork ElkArte and make it right.
