Hello TAZ Community. I'm dealing with Forums all my life and you guys can see my background in my previously posts if wanted. First, i don't want to go in XenForo official community for discussing this subject, because i don't feel that we, clients, are generally welcome there. I don't know why but i have this impression. Don't get me wrong, they have a good support but i really don't feel like a "home" for me. And i know many other people around here that feel's in the same way. Maybe some of the Staff need to participate in some 'sensitive training' or something like that. But this is another subject for another thread. After some reading and some experience with forum software, in my humble opinion, i can tell that XenForo is the best Forum software in the market. And i said FORUM system. They really have all features for a Forum system, like: - Good features for the Forum system in general speaking, like good (can be better) admin panel, moderation resources; - Embeds; - Media upload; - Emojis; - Reactions system; - Alerts; - Feed/Stream; - And some very expensive add-ons with more expensive renew licenses prices. They really nailed the Forum software aspect, real mastered, very secure, very low bugs and everything is very functional. But that's it. What is the point to keep supporting XenForo if we don't even know what is going on for the next years? We, Forum Admins have to know at least some road map of the development. With planned updates, we, administrators, can be prepared for the future. With this kind of information we can compare with the competitors, calculate the price, calculate the next steps for developing each of our own communities, calculate the investment needs for new features, etc. In my case, I'm trying to merge my website with my Forum, but XenForo don't have anything like a CMS manager. The Resource Manager (another paid addon) is a option, but is not a CMS. Limited to articles and that's it. Why not a blog management feature? Would be great. I can pay for this if the price is ok. And i know many others forums administrators who want this feature too. Just offer the possibility for implementing a static page for some information is not good enough. They need to expand their possibilities. And i really don't know if their approach on suggestions for implementing new features is the best thing to do: They offer a section in the Forum for people offer suggestions. The thread with most likes will get some implementation. This is really the best way? After one year using XenForo, i never be able to participate in some case study of marketing research from XenForo. Never ever i participated in some SurveyMonkey research. I never replied to some question from XF like: "What's are your feelings about your experience with XenForo?". The competitors are offering more and more resources along the time, specially CMS options. Yeah, XenForo really mastered the Forum Software in the last update (2.1) and what now? Where are you guys going? If you guys look at the main website it looks like was made in the 90's and never changed one single line: Now look at Invision Community website: Almost of every feature on Invision i have to buy third-part add-ons for doing the same thing. I feel so much more "secure" to use a native solution than using a third-part plugin for doing something. Yeah, i know, most of this resources are paid ones, but they are official and i can buy without any single weight on my conscience. Now let's see vBulletin: The desired CMS/Blog features: My site is growing (thanks God!) and is requiring me to plan more and more ahead. I need to see what kind of product that I'm buying. I'm criticizing this aspects because this is not a new discussion about certain issues and i really want to see XenForo growing more and more, the team is very competent and i know they don't have a big team like some competitors. But maybe is time to think outside of the box for one moment and really understand the necessities of the costumer base.
