thinking of giving a site over to major modifications of wordpress or maybe help forums?
I really just want to get something going which will push wordpress further, and contribute to the wordpress community.
If you're kinda of referring to something like what people did with K2 Reloaded or whatever it is, then I guess it's all up to you.
That is, if your intentions are to make up a WordPress blog, with like tons of modifications, plugins and what not as it's "own" download for people to grab and use.
You might be asking for a migraine, for yourself. :/ (Not being smart or trying to belittle your thoughts and intentions of course.) Just merely saying that I'm sure it would be a "hassle" and possibly a "headache" for yourself..
As WordPress is now, straight out of the box, "Plain Jane" with the available themes and plugins..there are ALOT of people, may I refer to them as "noobs", that have problems with just the "Plain Jane" WordPress, plugins and stuff.
I can only imagine if you, or when you do this, how much time and support will be required by you to help these peoples...
Unless I am not understanding your overall intentions of course...then please disregard those thoughts and opinions of mine above.. :/ Just wasn't sure with the use of words such as: "modifications" and: "push wordpress further".
scrumpyjack, really the thought of it all sounds and would seem to be cool to do. =) Maybe an attempt to do this wouldn't be a bad idea, but like I said basically..this would probably be better for those that KNOW WordPress and the full functionality of it rather then "noobs" just starting out.. I dunno, just my comments and what not on it..
JoshuaClinard- Even though lots of people said they preferred vB to what we are using here, and said that they would join, I got less than 25 users, and had to shut it down.
JoshuaClinard, just curious, but why did you have to shut it down?
Again, I'm not trying to be sarcastic or anything.. =)
