Even though, it may not be possible or feasible?
Is to have some of the above mentioned systems merged in to one somehow. Maybe some as plug ins or add an on, to the main or mother ship example; like Elkarte or SMF future version, with something like Protendo, (but Elkarte preferably), that would enable one to have to social abilities in the package. Like the blog and media. galleries and possible other stuff or features that Protendo may offer up?
I have mentioned many times, that there is nothing like SMF and I mean this and also, if something a WordPress like system and SMF could be combined, some how? but (main functionality such as social stuff) and also fit TP or it's future thoughts in there also.
Maybe far fetched Ideas, but never the less, vision of the future, in my thoughts anyway.
It seems to me that there are already many contributors at Elkarte, that get along and are having fun with this project.. I can only hope that more could jump on board the peace train and keep something new and exciting going, without legal complications of course!
Thanks to all out there, doing their thing and doing it well!
