Re: An update

Can't see any cause for concern now, myself. The original author himself has said he will fork the code if that scenario ever arose. Even if he didn't, someone else could and probably would. No reason for concern. smile

Apart from sponsoring the project, they wanted to later down the line offer paid-for web services in relation to PunBB (for example commercial grade PunBB hosting).

Instead of an example for what they might do maybe you could give us some facts for what they will do. Unless you sold the rights to PunBB without actually knowing the intentions of this company. Which I doubt.... big time.
So I suppose my next question would be... are you holding out on us again? Will another announcment be made soon after 1.3 that people will not like or did you sell it without knowing there TRUE intentions.

Dont get me wrong.. if this speeds up PunBB and improves PunBB then I am all for it. I just have my doubts. sad

Re: An update

...and although I was a lurker for a while (only registered today), why has this announcement stirred so much garbage here?

Honestly - I don't care.

As an example - mambo was great, and after the fork - now joomla looks even better (v1.5 RC1). So how and why is this a problem?

I used PunBB on many intranets, and CHARGED clients to set it up. Rikard and others put a LOT of work in this, offer came, and what is the problem in accepting it? Does it matter really?

I'm more concerned about the changes 1.3 will bring about. Will it offer some sort of Upgrade package? THAT would be the ONLY concern I have atm.

I'm happy for PunBB Devs to be able to get a bit of $$$ for their work.

Rumors about something that hadn't even happened at that point are false wink
Think about it, if I spread a rumor that Apple is going to come out with an iPod extreme and two years later they release one, does that make my rumor valid?

Re: An update

For me, this is good news. I`m glad your getting paid for your hard work and glad development has picked up momentum. I`ll probably install 1.3 now instead of 1.2 on my live server.

Just please.. don`t loose the philosophy, keep it fast and also don`t add any more images. The lack of images is one of the reasons I like PunBB, admitedly the nav and feed images do improve the look/feel enough to persuade even me to keep them. The feed hover image I will remove though and feel that any more images should not be added. That`s just me though.

Re: An update

Guys, this is not an announcement to say "Use 1.3," it isn't done and is not for production use (and we're not accepting bug reports at this point) wink

Re: An update

Don`t worry I`ll keep any bug reports to myself and won`t come crying if my server goes up in flames wink

Re: An update

lol I found a bug which would render the board un-usable, so I`ll be going with 1.2 after all.

It look pretty allright on the screenshot. But now as I'm so used to the other versions, it might be a bit hard to get used to the new look of it. (New options and that kind of stuff is always good, but new allover designs taks some time for me) tongue

Re: An update

yes its end of free punbb...now it may sound too harsh....but punbb asked donations to support the project...they developed it based on those donations and now selling it off for $$$ thats too bad...why dont you refund money of those who supported the script and donated for "development"

Re: An update

PunBB will be still free for us to use. Did you really read it deeply?

Yes, that does sound bitter, and also wrong. I doubt anyone ever asked for donations. Accepting and asking are two very different things. As with all open source software, one should be grateful for the fact that the author and devs ever created and open sourced the software in the first place. There is no obligation. If someone donates, that is of their own volition, not due to some pre-requisite.

How tardy of the author and devs to actually wish to earn a living. How could they.............


Yes, btw, that was sarcasm.

Re: An update

Donation were asked for. If you check the earlier threads there was a thread about donations. And people donated whole heartedly (including me)

http://punbb.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=5415

developers must earn a levaing that true....The point is not about that..Point is as a donar I feel cheated...the message is very ambiguos about future versions...or what it actually means to me as a end user...whats the impact of this sale on the end user...

Rick could have communicated this news in better way giving clear idea about what to expect, what will change and what will not change...

Re: An update

Why? Have you ever created or wrote a minor mod even, for PunBB? Do you have any idea how much time coding even the simplest of scripts can consume? The fact that this software ever became available at all is payment in itself for whatever donation people made. I can understand your opinion to a degree, but seriously, good intentions don't put food on the table. Dev's have families to support too. smile
