Re: Privacy ?
There was some talk in the recent buddypress-dev meeting about creating a poll for future feature requests. When such a poll appears on the site, be sure to vote for privacy in the core if you think it’s important for it not to be located in a plugin.
Didn’t we do the exact same thing six months ago?
Privacy is crucial imho. If access management is not core, what is? Social networks can’t function without privacy controls. Members won’t use it for anything serious if they can’t control whether their posts goes to their friends or out to the world.
I hadn’t paid much attention to this issue because I assumed it was coming. With all due respect, the developers seem more interested in “new features” and cool coding challenges than straightforward usability and making sure the core is rock solid.
