Getting to Know: K@

1. What got you involved with SMF?
I needed a it of support, so I registered at .org.

Read a few posts and realised I could help-out. So, I did. Then, I got invited onto the support team and that was that.

2. What feature of SMF do you like the most?
With v1.x, it was the wide range of themes that it could have. I’ve not used v2, much, because I find v1 to be more user-friendly.

3. From what you see what do you feel SMF is missing?
I’m no coder, sadly. But, from a layman’s point of view, the way that mods could be a right PITA to install, if you don’t know code. Mind you, it helped me learn a little bit of PHP, because of that.

Maybe I should be grateful, for that, really.

Again, though, I’m no coder. So, it may be that that kinda thing can’t be improved, much.

4. How do you feel about the transition from LLC to NPO?
It was perfect, as far as I was concerned. It was just a pity that it took so long, for reasons that were beyond our (their?) control.

5. Since you have left SMF what have you been up too?Hurting, as you might imagine.

Oddly enough, though, I’ve been doing an awful lot of SMF support work, via e-mail. For reasons that I won’t bore you with, some people don’t like using the SMF forum.

If I’m honest, which I always try to be, I haven’t given up hope, with SMF. If things change and they can see their was to accepting me, I’d go back, tomorrow.

Somehow, though, I think I have more chance of shitting on Neptune.
