Following the sudden removal of BBshowcase.org earlier in the week, it appears that BBprogress.com has decided to call time on the BBpress project as well.
It is with sadness and regret that BBprogress.com is closed effective immediately from 1st December 2009.
BBpress has lurched forward this past year like a headless chicken. As much as I personally like the software and as much as we have tried to embrace it; the project has effectively died. I urge you all to not look to BBpress for forum software unless it absolutely fits all your needs (and they had better be really basic).
Lack of communication, lack of leadership, lack of code, lack of project management in addition to an abundance of wrong and misleading information has weighed BBpress down for over a year. Almost all attempts to help were met with hostility or silence, which we now see as a result of dealing with people who were on borrowed time on BBpress and nothing personal in nature.
BBpress needs now, what it has always needed, a Project Manager…. someone to take the project from A to B to C in full visibility of the community. With Sam’s removal from BBpress some 3 months ago and no replacement being instated one must ask what is going on with BBpress and who is making the decisions.
What code that made it onto the BBpress.org website will stay there as long as is needed, and I openly invite others to edit and reuse any of the code this community has created.
We hope that the following plugins were useful to you:
Better tag control
Private Message v1
Autocomplete for tags.
Admin block posts based on keywords
Sin Bin functionality.
Black mark functionality.
Check registrar against spammer database.
Where now for BBpress?
