    If the masses want something and the developer has other ideas, WHICH has happened in the past, what makes Xen any better than vb?
    I brought that up with them actually and it sounds like they will try to communicate with us if an idea is out of scope for various reasons. They are also trying to keep users posted as to when a feature may come up if it is in the deck of cards. What makes this different is that we can then choose to hire a coder to create it or not as the case may be. It remains to be seen if it works out that way but a brief check of the suggestions forum over at XF leads me to believe so.

    Ahh Common sense where would be be without it. If everyone wanted to have a big bold red blinking text on the home page saying Register Here but the developers thinks it will hinder the philosophy of the clean design of xenForo they should not implement it.

    The primary condition to see if a feature will/not be added is if they have used it. Regardless of their answer, the community then suggests and converse with the developers to see if it can/not be implemented.

    Do you have a particular time frame in mind as well?

    Yep though their decisions are very good and it's what decides how successful the product will be. Please excuse me but if they follow every suggestion that has been suggested the product will be bloated, a failure and inefficient. (remind you of anything???)

    A quote from a member.

    With vision like this, I don't need to be listened to. I keep looking for things to add or something I don't like, but I've got nothing. Literally.

    Proves that they can learn and adapt.

    What do you mean "support" ?
