I’d say that there are more suitable software for your needs:
I’ve earlier only lent support to other noobs like me at BP.org and bought services from BP-developers. I haven’t had much to do with BP.org lately since my install of BP works pretty well. I drop by once in a while to see if there’s something new to have a look at. I don’t think that BP will die but the launch of 1.2 at BP.org was probably not a step in the right direction. A website as small as mine works fantastic with 1.2. Heavy websites like BP.org probably don’t.
I’m also confused by the design of BP.org and think that the first step to the evolution of BP.org (apart from the trac, I’m not a coder, sorry) is to revise it. If that isn’t mended, people like Jeff Sayre won’t support as much (if I understand your comments correctly). I’m not sure if BP.org has to look like a community. Perhaps a rollback to the old forums will be a better choice for now.
I solved this by having two different blogs. One as a frontend and the second for BP.
There’s some old forum posts about this. Search the forum and find plugins and work arounds.
I’ve had more success with finding developers by finding them instead of hoping for them to find me.
Is it this one: https://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/2269 ?
Extremely interesting but I’m a bit hesitant to do modding that needs to be at core. I’m hoping that Andy_P will see this! This have to get to core if it work! I’ll check the trac.
I’ve tried to sign up for your test website but I’m not getting any activation email.
I’ve got a site for professionals and they don’t need to have a friending-feature. They’d go to Facebook if they wanted that.
But I agree that the stream can be a bit crowded. We’re keeping members number low at the moment to handle that.
Oh, that would be good. I’ve been salivating for this feature since 1.2 beta. A lot of my users think this is a problem.
Doh! I’ve used hyphen (-) instead of dot (.) in usernames so that they’d work. Apparently not.
“I just had a revelation tonight that it would be relatively trivial to extend this to topic merge and topic split, completing the “holy trinity” of forum manipulation.”
What JJJ said about it technicaly. What Andrea_r said about Facebook. I’ll add what I think as an admin.
BP is a stream for me as a user and not a techie. I need to be able to tweak everything that shows up in the stream in a way so that the community can expand. We’ve got 250 users now at a closed community with about 20% really active users. I’d like to grow up to at least 1000 users but I’m afraid of what will become of the Stream. I’ve got 300 very active friends over at Facebook and it makes me want to hide away from it. I mostly never go there since it’s too much to follow.
Also apart from the Stream there needs to be containers for all things for part time users. They should be able to follow the community even if they don’t take a peek every day.
“What would be cool is to take it a step further and make the plugin agnostic and have multiple buttons. For example, I might want a like, dislike, and sarcastic like button (or whatever creative things people come up with). “
Lovely. In a futuristic version perhaps the poster can set up different buttons for his/her post.
I’d try to hire a coder to do it for you if you have funds instead of coding skills.
If you don’t know coding at all, this is probably to hard for you. Just saying.
If you’ve got windws hosting (most people here probably don’t) that works with both ASP and PHP you’ll have to keep the web.config-file for it to work. There’s no need to take it away. You’ll probably have to have it recreated for you if it doesn’t work.
This is a windows hosting problem and not an Buddypress issue.
If all you want is an additional forum to the blog perhaps you’d like to have a look at:
@ Disbas: Yes, it does.
Also google or others may search and document all of your website if not protected.

Not specific for BP but works for BP also.
Great to have until the Privacy Module from Jeff S hits the road.
