    Even if it gets released tomorrow then people will complain it is too late by 5 hours, or "it's already evening here".

    Honestly, just wait for the announcement. It will be out when it's ready and working.

Where a couple of months down the line now, so really I would have thought this could be shown in the form of some screenies like he asked.

    Not much to ask really, only takes a minute to do using a program like HyperSnap for example. And refusing to do so, just adds fuel to the fire thats it just a pie in the sky idea still.

    Personally I'm not bothered about the SN in vB 3.7 myself as a side note, and would much sooner see thr WC3 Validation problem sorted first.
    The w3 valdation is a _minor_ issue, its not going to stop sites from working.

    They cannot release screenshots until the product is basically complete feature wise and design wise (even for the SN part). Theres no point showing everyone what it looks like and changing it in a few weeks time.

    Sorry you feel that way about it Sean. Actually being intelligent permits one to comment in a "thoughtful" manner, without rancor or peak. It also permits one to live with the simple fact that not "everyone" will "get it" or choose to follow that path.

    There are also other features getting worked on, you'll see what its going to look like when we're comfortable with the feature set.
    Theres the best answer you will ever get .

    Again, I will attempt to make clear that I have NO criticism of your site or your hopes and/or dreams for where it, or future iterations of it, might go. This, however, is the "Site Feedback Forum" which is denoted as the place if one has:

    "some feedback on the design of the site? Want something added to the vBulletin online manual? Post it here!"

    There is also a "vBulletin Suggestions and Feedback Forum" where they ask:

    "Please use this forum to post feedback and suggestions related to vBulletin"

    But again, my comment was directed to the apparent anger and method of expression of your desire to have a social networking plug-in when it appears that there are other issues affecting the success and/or non-success of your current and/or now disclosed former Forums, unrelated to a social networking plug-in.

    For example, you might have simply stated you wanted to built your vision of a social-networking site and were anxious to get it started and that you needed to know when vBulletin's version of the plug-in might be ready and available and that you needed some more details of its proposed features, because if it was not to be available soon and/or if its proposed feature list was not going to be sufficient for your needs and/or to your liking, you would have to go in a different direction and that you needed to make that informed decision before your current license expired.

    You chose a different path, which is your option, but one which, under the circumstances apparant from what you had posted and the current status of your site, appeared to me "seems somewhat over the top." This was intended to simply convey that it seemed to go beyond what was apparently justified and/or necessary, based upon the information you provided from which to evaluate the circumstances and manner in which you voiced your complaints.

    Regards,

    Look, Mr-I-wanna-be-all-wordy-trying-to-make-myself-appear-intelligent, you misunderstand the use of this forum as it pertains to the site feedback of 'vbulletin.com' which i am clearly giving as the proposed idea of an SN in developement is/will be part of vbulletin.com. This is not about feedback on MY forum or site.

    Thanks, to the others, for your comments.

    It sucks, but that's the way it is. The alternative (according to the developers, and judging by other companies, they do have a point there) would be empty promises on both features and deadlines.

    fyi, ive been a vbulletin owner since jan. 2002 and have redone my site over and over again, so much so that my friends & acquaintances dont bother to reregister anymore. what i want is to have the SN, restart my site on a new domain, and get it going for good....that is...if the SN is even worth waiting for.

    as far as myself having the majority of the posts, you have to post on your own forum if you expect anyone else to. nobody's gonna waste their time registering and then posting on a forum that has no activity, right?
