Great Interview. Thanks Lynne!! (and thanks Steve for organising it )
Your most welcome, I rather enjoyed this, was kinda nice to learn about someone who has given me so much help on vBulletin.org.
Great interview. Great read.
Very nice interview - Thanks Lynne and Steve
It was a great interview indeed. Lynne is a great person with great intentions. Nice work.
I still find it weird to have anyone interview me.... I'm just a regular person and just don't think I'd be that interesting. But, the interview was fun to do. Glad you guys enjoy it.
Lynne, lots of people seem to be defecting from vb due to 4.
Do you have confidence that the software will right itself or do you see 4 as the deathknell of VB?
I had the same feeling when I was asked for my first interview, you did a great job and it was an excellent read!
I am trying very hard to believe that they will get their act together and release a quality product, but sometimes it is very hard to keep the faith. I think it has great potential and I think it has some great developers on the team that really *want* to make the product great. I've seen them posting in threads trying to get ideas from the users to add into the software (take a look at all Edwin's posts regarding the CMS). The devs are trying hard. But, somewhere something is going wrong in the process and that really needs to be fixed. There are some bugs that keep reappearing every other release and that is just not acceptable.
Now that you mention it. . .
Wow, Lockeed Martin! You have any association with skunkworks
Same here (even though I've only technically done one).
Funnily enough, it was Shawn (^ that guy up there) who did the interview.
You made a great interviewee I might add
Was catching up on the interviews around here and I really appreciated this one. On vb.org, I just saw that Lynne was a very helpful person. I applaud you for tenacity there as well as other places I've seen you. It's really quite welcoming to see what you've shared. Brings some tangible aspects to this online interaction thang, if you will.
Of course, I keyed in on this part, if you've seen what I posted on what I do:
This makes all the more sense on you did your "leading" posts for people. It certainly worked for me on a few occasions. Furthermore, thanks for candidness regarding vb4. Since the presale event, which I'm not meaning to make a scene here about it, is that I would look seriously when vb5 comes, simple as that for me. Course, 3.8 in my eyes is perfectly a lasting product.
Lastly, I'm a Cali native myself. I used to be near a beach. Central coast, but now closer to the mountains, which has its merits.
Thanks for sharing and well done questions!
