about GPL...

GPL is known not able to protect web/network scripts well because it only says a user may not remove the copyright when redistributing the software (modified or not). This wont be much problem with programs that one runs in his/her own computer, because nobody else will see it. But if it's a webscript or a program that's used on a network or by many people, it will be very important to have the copyright notice properly shown there.

I was told that this should be covered in GPL v3, and was recommened for now to use the afero license, which is an alternate license, based on the GPL V2 with the network clause, which covers those concerns and is supposedly very similar to what GPL V3 will be (should it ever be finished)

btw, why is the SMF site registration not like in this site? (without email confirmation) i think more people will register that way...

This site should have e-mail confirmation turned on.  If you don't want your real address publically viewable then choose to hide it.  It is no excuse to use a fake address.

we'll prove you wrong
SMF is going to be a great forum software, whether you like it or not ;)

Hey spACEman sp1ff,

You (the whole team) don't need to prove anything to me. That has been done time and time again. Look around and the proof is right here in the best Message Board I have ever come across.
Will that be duplicated and most probably greatly improved on ? Of course it will, because the team behind it is so good.

Change is necessary to survive, that I understand all too well, but what I have a problem with is a name that
wouldn't accurately represent the product.

1. Php and MySQL coding is not 'simple' by any means otherwise we'd all be writing our own message board software.

2. There's no machines involved here. Think of it from a keyword perspective. There's no mention of any of the keywords you might expect to find like "forum, message, bulletin, board, etc etc".

Obviously the person who decided on the SMF name will be greatly upset to think that the name is being trashed (it is not a person dig) , but I was really cooled out thinking that the new product was going to be called something like "Trinity".

Trinity Bulletin Board
Powered by Trinity BB
Trinity Software
Trinity Support Forum


Instead what do we get?

Powered by Simple Machines

???


Just my opinion.
What ever it is called, I'm sure it will be just as good as 1.5.4.

Too bad I like Simple Machines :P.

Yes, the upgrade is painless.  It's even better than the previous ones ;).  You can even do a backup from it ;D.

Hey Metho,

We all know there there are ignorant morons who don't know the difference between Gold and SE, but then there are those that do research and can see the difference.

YaBBSE stands alone from Gold because it is far superior, faster and more resourceful. Some people would not know quality if it bit them on the bum.

Viva SE - God Speed SMF (or what ever the hell you want to call it .... Simple Machines ? Jeez ! What sort of message does that give ? ? )


Edit additional -

Jeez ! I have had time enough now to come to hate the name "Simple Machines".

I'm sorry but simple machines has bugger all to do with php, mysql, forums, message boards, admins, moderators, or any other bloody thing you will find in these pages.

Simple Machines as a name sucks big time.
"Simple" is a dumb ass mistake.

Unpopular ? I know I will be, but hey at least I'm honest.

I could aslways go for a copyright with "Dumb Threads" forum, but then that doesn't exist because no-one was idiot enough to go for a name like that,

"Simple" sucks. Nil Points!

its only a name ;) the forum doesnt work any difrend with an other name :P

I actually like the name...goes very well with the concept. Rather cool, imho. But of course, I know I'll get flamed for that. :D

Bad history...some people still think it's only Perl and fltfile.

We've made the change to the new name guys...come and join us or not, your choice.
