Re: The BuddyPress UI Design and conceptual approach to Social Networking
@r-a-y, I didn’t say you did. I compared bbPress to a parasite as in a foreign organism that weakens the host (“… mold BuddyPress into a more forum-like environment …”). First step to heal Buddypress is to remove the parasite.
Edit: @r-a-y (“This inferred that I believed bbPress was a parasite”) No it doesn’t. WTF?! I’m not even picking a fight with you, just trying to clearly state my arguments about where BP should go.
@Sadr (“I believe social networks can be the next generation of collaborative forums”) They shouldn’t be. Social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn) are a newer way to do some of the same things forums used to do. Forcing them back into the classic forum mold only ruins what makes them work. They are different conceptual approaches/paradigms. You can’t just mix them.
