I just thought I'd highlight that no post is ignored or overlooked. Each and every comment is read and the development team endeavour to do whatever they can in their busy schedules to deliver Flarum on a platter like we all expect.
Whilst I agree that everyone has a different interpretation of the term simple, there are many different types of forum software that cater to different subjects and projects purely from the way they work and the reason why they were created. No forum software is going to provide everything that everyone asks for, so the things that Flarum may lack can be picked up in the form of an extension or hopefully implemented in the core later down the road.
It's human nature really.
As a very simple example, I know someone that loves and uses XenForo 1.0, but absolutely hates XenForo 2.0 despite it being the exact same developers. Things transition and change according to the developers and as a consumer if you are against it, find a way to change it or use another forum software that caters more to what you want and need. I have personally chosen a forum software that I actually didn't like when compared to others (SMF) but I made the decision to use it for one reason, it had a supported shop and points modification/extension available that was essential for my community.
The job now is to iron out as many bugs and errors as possible and aim our sights on that stable release. ?
