It's good to hear things are progressing. I have loved and supported NinjaForge since you guys were ninjoomla. I do have to say, blog updates would be nice to nekkidninjas and I too found the hiding of the date stamps to be a pain in the ass for what it's worth. It's more effort for me to get information on when these issues were last addressed, usability etc.
I'm glad you guys are moving forward, you can understand the frustration of some people here though because I know if they are like my case they are consultants and cannot migrate their installs until they get updates. They are obviously in a panic and perhaps aren't as technically inclined as you or I. I have just wrote some bareb bones components while waiting for things like Testimonials 2.0, mine is no where near as comprehensive but works as a stop-gap. If I was not familiar with Joomla and PHP all these years I would probably also be in quite the panic.
With all the nice things I have to say, I still think ninjaforge is dead. Internal updates are great, but I can't be the only one who feels once Ninjaboard got started everything else took a back seat. That could totally just be perception though and once again I like and appreciate all your guys here learnt a lot from so many of them, no hard feelings.
Finally, I'm glad you updated us, I couldn't help but feel bad for John having to bear the brunt of this while having almost no information to share. This is my eyes was something you should have handled Daniel, and months ago at that. To be frank "We have tried to be as open and honest as we can, but the snide remarks and insinuations make me wonder why we even bother." Is incredibly rude to your customers (regardless of how they are acting). It also is a lie, you should have been the one to answer this question personally in January, not throw John under the bus!
Please take my critiques as constructive. I have made friends here and always liked and got along with the people. I just find that your last posts come too little, too late (and end quite sour). These forum posts should have been on nekkidninjas months ago.
