for those who have left

What exactly needs to be done/happen here on the .org for you guys to come back?

Points made in the thread:
  • More professionalism by the staff
  • help members to provide better feedback to coders
  • give coders more incentive to release hacks
  • encourage more coding discussion in the public forums
  • make it more challenging + rewarding to be a 'master coder'

For brad to give the graphic database it's own dedicated area. I'm sure they would come flooding back. Who's left btw?

I don't think graphics is the main reason people flock to org to be honest... you can get them anywhere *shrug*

Think very hard about where you're trying to take this thread, Shelley and whether it's a path you really want to go down.

No, I don't want you to design another style. I've just finished designing two custom styles for clients so haven't had time to work on the site. And if we're being pernickety it was one and a half you did.

I'm not getting into a slanging match on here with you over something you obviously still have issues with. So let's keep it sweet shall we, huh?

*steps out of thread*

I haven't got any issues with you. Believe that or not.

Now who actually left?

I'm referring to the coders who over the last few weeks/months have pulled their hacks from the site and stopped submitting/supporting them. but others have done the same in the past, just not as quickly as seemed to have happened recently.

actually you can't get them just anywhere, and graphics is a BIG reason why quite a few vB users come to vb.org

yea, I think if they paid more attention to the graphics area that people would use it a lot more.

I remember a discussion on the .com where I was suggesting that modified vb forums (thanks to the coders) account for a big portion of the vb sales. They said something like 85 or 90% of vb owners don't edit their code or templates. They mostly just changed the graphics. (but I was trying to make the point that the reason those 85/90% even purchased vb was because they saw a modified/hacked vb forum in the first place)

So basically there's a large group of vb owners who could really use a nice graphics/styles area here.

Actually, I dont care about graphics. My website is identiffied with some colours and I cant loose that strenght. So graphics is not all there is.

Most of the people left because of the staff replies they got. But even changing the staff, wont satisfy everyone. We all run boards and know how is it. You can never make everyon happy. And that is sad... in a way.
