Abishur: I heard the same a while back, but I never caught the original post.
For most group/volunteer projects there tends to be a sort of annoyance buffer; stuff doesn't get fixed until someone is annoyed enough by the not-fixed state to get round to fixing it. I guess for a lot of people (including myself) that buffer si slowly being reached.
Each time I have to wait for the letters I type in to appear on by one in the post window. I guess it'll be a net time saver if I can help using some better software. However, I'm not going to just write a converter from Wordpress to any of the different board software options and see if it's used. If we really want to fix it, a bunch of people should be pointed at an given a clear directive in what to do.
I can understand the forum is not a priority, but once the newbies start flooding in, it would be nice to have some kind of welcoming banner out.
