In reply to Good bye Boonex

Oh wou wou wou. Calm down guys. Wordpress is another thing, totally different, supported by thousands of people around the world. Wordpress is also much simpler in a development point of view. We do not have in Wordpress all what we have in Dolphin. With wordpress you can make a blog or a multi-user blog, but will you have chat? video-chat? messagging systems? and etc.. etc.. etc.. I think not. Yes I like wordpress too. It is a good product. But before blaming Dolphin and Adrew Boonex you should see more take a while to think about what you r saying. Yes Dolphin has bugs, issues etc.. and it is not always easy to manage. But are aware of how many features are there? Can you realize the work that is behind this CMS? Would you really compare a Blog system like Wordpress is with a Social Utility like Dolphin is? Sometimes you come here and say "Wou, this does not work, then Adios". This is not the right way to act. If you want a 100% bug-free software, the hire a TEAM of developers for at least 2 years. Give to them at least $2000 per month and have them working on your Social Network for 9 hours per day. Then you can say "Wou, it does not work, you are all fired". But with Dolphin, you are having a very good product for free, with TONS of features. I repeat FOR FREE! Yes you will have to pay a license if you will want to remove the Boonex brand. But how much would you pay to have the same software made from the scratch??? Can you realize that?? As I already stated somewhere else, every software needs fixes, every software needs development. And if you are going to have a ocial network, you will ALWAYS need at least one developer working for you full-time. If you think to spend $100 for having a social network, and then leave it as it is, then you are totally wrong! Do not blame Dolphin.- Blame yourself, if you want a social network for $100 and think.."Is there any site in the world that became famous with $100 as budget?".."How much I will spend to have the same features made from the scratch? (maybe more than $50.000)".."Is there any site in the world with all those features that can live without at least a developer working on it full-time?"..Give the answers to those questions, and you will have the answer for yourself. Bye

Yes, WordPress doesn't has a ton of features. Has two tons, including video chat, etc etc. Yes, they are plugins made by thirds. Still, in all my "wp life" i've combined a lot of plugins with WP and it worked flawless.

Dolphin is a BIG mess, and this cannot be excused. Andrew told that v7 was "totally new", "from scratch", etc. Now we hear this again, but with 8. I suppose it will happen with 9, 10, 11. Cross my heart! Sounds familiar? :)
YobiLab
You said that right "made by thirds". Dolphin has all of that made by Boonex itself and not by many "thirds"..this is why we should excuse if we find some bugs and not always complain.
razva
If thirds are the solution, than why not develop a base and encourage devs to build this base? Obviously the way things work right now are not the best solution.
YobiLab
Well this is something that could be discussed
razva
Yes. But in my opinion this discussion is far to late. Lack of vision?
