It seems the interest have died out now, 7 votes and and 9 at smf site - probably some overlapping members - which seems to indicate a die-hard fan base of TP out there. :)

You'd think that but then since I started working on TinyPortal there has been 140 downloads of the latest released version with 188 of the one prior to that and 97 of the one previous to that one. So somebody somewhere is using it. I think people just download and use it now and less people visit this site unless there is a issue, or something they can't do.


tino, don't forget the downloads from here too.  ;) 

From the SMF mod site
1.4r = 97
1.4.1  = 188
1.5.0 = 140

From here in the downloads
1.4R = 95
1.4.1  = 140
1.5.0 = 105

Total = 765 downloads.

So yes, it's being used a fair bit, or at least tried out.  But I agree they don't seem to say much until assistance is required.

For me the number one best feature has always been the TP Article system because it gives you the ability to add as many extra pages as you like and the type of content can be so diverse.
Next would be the blocks and panels and here again the attraction is the wide ranging type of content.

After that comes the Frontpage option(s) and then everything else on the list... I voted for all, of course.  ^-^

As for folks showing up and voting, I've always held the opinion that aside from our forum staff we've never had really high numbers of active members when compared to the numbers of downloads of TinyPortal. As tino said, people don't tend to show up until they have an issue that they are unable to resolve on their own.
I think that maybe they are just busy with their own forums/site and don't visit here unless they need us to fix something.


...Well to be perfectly honest, in my humble opinion, of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view, but also by looking into this matter in a different perspective and without being condemning of one's view's and by trying to make it objectified, and by considering each and every one's valid opinion, I honestly believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say.   ^-^
