This post is to start a new thread based from
some great discussion has been taking place and I don't want to get too far off topic about naming the new Ninja Group Jive extension.
Several things were well noted from the thread
1) competition is good for everyone, even programmers
2) CB is not only the only community extension out there any more. There are two great site that are creating Facebook and MySpace like community extensions.
The first one is JoomUnity which can found at www.Joomunity.org, the second site is www.jomsocial.com. There are several pro and con to each. For example, Joomunity allow people to download the extension and test each area out, while JomSocial (okay to make life easier, just like Community Builder --> CB, Joomunity-->JU, and JomSocial-->JS), as I was saying, while JS is still under development and the developers only allow customers at azrul.com to beta test the extension. Also, JU welcomes third party apps. I am still waiting on the reply for third party apps for JS. JS seems to increase such great feature as comments, and blog very well.
So why post anything here at Ninjaforge?
Honestly, this is a great community to discus things like this and also what type of great extensions we can come together and create.
