Whataboutism.I would argue the trend on thinking a single piece of software is the only reason a community is successful is moot.
I’ve seen communities run on old Perl scripts be successful in 2022.
Did I say otherwise? I didn't say a single thing about a community being successful or not based on the software it runs. If I did, which I didn't, your point would be valid. But since I didn't say something close to that, you are just presenting an argument nobody countered to begin with.
To be more clear, nobody here thinks that a single piece of software is the only reason a community is successful or not.
Should we run both vB and XF at the same time then? Whataboutism at its finest. Also, I run a non-commercial place, so my business model is non-existent. Thanks for reminding me about the risks of running XF. Not sure what it has got to do with XF not having released a meaningful update for 2 years yet, but good to know that it exposes a risk that we rely on XF. Note to everyone, don't rely on XF, gotcha.Depending on a single piece of software for a business model exposes a risk.
I completely disagree about the expectation part. Not gonna go into why cause I see no point trying to explain it to someone who asks us to lower our expectations even more than they are. Maybe another 2 years of waiting will cure us from our "high" expectations.XenForo does not charge enterprise level pricing, and shouldn’t be expected to deliver those results although often times they are.
