Re: BuddyPress Future w/o MVC: Big Deal?
So we should all be enormously grateful for that. I don’t think threats to move another platform are really productive.
I am grateful and Buddypress developers wouldn’t care whether I move to another platform or not. I was responding to John James Jacoby’s argument that people stick with WordPress because it has found the right balance.
WordPress is evolving from blog software to a social networking platform with Buddypress. That puts the user at the center, which is a fundamental shift in focus. That’s why I keep hammering on member management and registration.
I love the extensibility of WordPress/Buddypress, but if the foundation – member management – is a mess, that is a real problem that can force people to consider other options. I have not found good alternatives. Anahita Social Engine on Joomla could be one to watch.
