    I wasn't defending anyone futhermore when I don't know anything about her and this is the first time I hear about Cathy. I have never used SFM and I am not involved in their community.

    I'm simply pointing out that there are more than one point of view and maybe there were good reasons to do what she did, or simply that she's not suited to be a manager. There are very smart and intelligent people that simply don't know how to be managers. Or she could be really smart but even smart people do stupid things sometimes

    Take your pick

    If a group of former SMF devotees plans to start a new forum system, please come back and let us know. phpBB3 is nice, but I think it's templating system sucks.

    I'm not sure what I am and aren't allowed to say since this is all being worked in a semi-private forum, but you might be able to work out a lot of it if you have a poke around http://smf-friends.org/.

    If you are interested in helping out, then leave a post saying as such on that site and you might be given access. I'm not sure exactly what the requirements are for access, but they let me in and I haven't been overly heavily involved with SMF in the past.

    This sucks. I use SMF on a site, and love it. I'd hate to see it go.

    And the saga continues:


    http://www.simplemachines.org/commun...763#msg2486763

    The thing I find truly odd about this forum post by Cathy, was that she attached some documents to supposedly justify that she wasn't doing anything dodgy with the accounts. However those documents are only from 2006. 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 are all missing.

    And now the conversation has been blocked by the site admins again after a bunch of SMF users starting asking more questions about the issue ... http://www.simplemachines.org/commun...564#msg2488564

    I do hope they get it sorted out or change the license to GPL, it would be a shame to loose a free forum software from the market.

    ryanheller, I went over to smf-friends the other day. It looks like that Jeff guy from SMF is over there.

    I would love to see another forum script. Perhaps a halfway point between SMF and phpBB without phpBB's "compiled" templates and without SMF's echoing stuff out here, there, and everywhere.

    It seems that there is very little interest in using a GPL license. A BSD or Apache license appear to be the preferred options.

    There are apparently discussions going on behind closed doors. Work is being undertaken to resolve the situation, but it's being worked on out of the public eye.
