No there is no change at all. Maybe the magic potion will start working after a few more months. I have posted a similar thread here which I cannot access anymore, so maybe you can -> http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/361511-anyone-moved-their-forum-from-vb-and-then-moved-out/unread/
I wonder how long before your thread also gets moved there so its better that I get my inputs in before I cannot see this thread as well.
The web is moving towards simplicity is how I see it.
Maybe someone can make mod which shows a button in the header like the xenforo login button. Clicking on that will bring down an ajax based thread posting form. You can enter the title, select the forum, add tags maybe and enter the thread body before submitting.
People will ask whats the point as the that can be achieved by visiting the forum and clicking the start new thread button. Well usability is all about achieving more with less scrolling and clicking.
I like that thought but I wouldn't say this would be critical for survival. However the platform which can provide the richest app experience for both publisher and consumer will surely come out on top.
This is a good take away from this thread for me. Lets see how well we can implement it. :)
Good idea about shoutbox. We generally point the users to our facebook page. We usually have large downtimes ranging in days when we are doing a bigger migration/upgrade. Soon we will be moving our servers and I intend to keep the downtime negligible. Then there is this impending 3.3 upgrade.
