It would be better if it had good instrctions
By ,

I guess I can stumble into everything, but it sure would be GREAT if someone would spend time WALKING PEOPLE THROUGH how it works. How do I "invite" users on my WordPress blog to join or become friends? No clue. No instructions. Just assumptions. That's the problem with Geeks. They love to create plugins but no one knows how to write -- which is kind of ironic since BLOGGING IS ABOUT WRITING! I'll keep it for a while before deactivating. It happens to too many great ideas that just don't work in the real world.

Over rated?
By , for WP 3.6.1

With approximately 591 ratings of which 115 or almost 20% are one star - one has to wonder how many NO stars there might be were there such a rating option.

I'd like to understand why are at least 1 in 5 peeps not happy with buddy press?

That's more than just a few.

bbpress has less than 10% one star rating

Activity Stream PopUp Driving Me Nuts, Features Not That Hot
By , for WP 3.4.2

I'm using this with Commons in a Box. Though the Activity Stream could be helpful, I can't find any way to turn off the annoying "Looks like this is the first time using the Activity Stream etc" pop up.

I can't log in on Buddypress with my WP info for some reason so I can't ask anything about it there. Would be nice to be able to post to support from here.

DON'T FULLY UNDERSTAND THIS?
By , for WP 3.5

Generally very excited by the idea BUT There seems to be no way of closing access to anyone that wants to become a member - so its completely open to anyone that wants to register and set up a group on MY blog!? Nuts. The only way I can see to get around this is to stop anyone registering - which is also nuts..

Basically, great idea - not enough setting options.
