    Kier and Mike haven't been on the site in about three weeks. Prior to that Mike hadn't posted since March? Kier posts in a bit of a flurry every 3-6 weeks it seems?

    Or have I missed some news about ownership of the company? Or am I reading their profiles wrong?

    Brogan and ChrisD seem to be minding the shop, with other moderators sporadically showing up. The forums seem to be in an ebb rather than a flow.

    Support tickets do get dealt with though, even if we sometimes need to prod to get full answers.

    just because you haven't seen them or they haven't posted means nothing. They are often on the site without being logged in and/or logged in without displaying their status...

    All good - we just noticed it the other day. They used to be active, creating video guides etc but I hadn't seen them on very often recently.

    Kier is not publicly active for at least 6 years now and Mike is on his 3rd year, if I am not mistaken.

    My definition of publicly active = at least 7 posts a week in average.

    Shows how active I must be on the Xf forum if I didn't notice until now :)

    Well, the video guides you mentioned were a thing in 2010. That level of activity never happened again nor someone else created video guides ever again.

    Brogan also seemed to give up doing his Bro-Guides after a while.

    The customer service content and community building activities seem to have been abandoned, which is ironic.

    It looks like we have a mystery on our hands.

    When people who developed the top forum software, even with financial interests involved, can't get themselves to be engaged in their own forum - it is proof that forums are dying :p

    Let me put it in another way, I rather have that Kier, Mike and Chris develop Xenforo then them posting when not needed. On the other hand i do miss Kiers video’s explaining, Mike is not bad but I rather have Kier his voice is better.

    Well, it does seem to create discussion, so yes. :)

    I wouldn't worry about Kier or Mike unless you see that XenForo is being renamed to ChrisForo. :D

    Im still slowly working my way towards a new forum project but I've been stuck on choosing XF or IPB for months. The few have you seens (more like none) that have come out for the new version have been putting me off of XF but it's still such a nice simple forum software compared to IPB.

    Then again I've always been an IPB fan boy (as you can tell I still haven't gotten around to calling it IPS) and it was my favorite forum script to make themes for and also offers a lot more. I'm really liking the new acp look, just wish it had a dark mode.

    I'm still probably not going to have anything running for another few months so hopefully by then there will be more happenings with XF 2.2 being announced and shown off to help me make up my mind.

    I actually loved that movie, it's one of the few ones I enjoy watching over and over again or just having play in the background while I do other things.

    XF 2.2 is in development so there will indeed be some things to show when we're closer to beta.
