    @kanha, you ARE that user. It makes me even angrier that you don't even realize that you are a leecher that has never given anything back to this community and keep plastering your endless give-it-to-me-for-free requests all over the forums. I have... view reply

    Elgg 3x is great release and its working smooth and fast. Our kudos and gratitude to all those who have made this possible. At the same time, I will like to say humbly some of my concerns regarding the future. Will Elgg be continued to be developed...
    • I am sorry and my sincerest apologies if that has happened. However I am really honestly confused and I am not sure that I do have any such interactions with you in recent past. I hope you are not confusing me with any other user or incident. I will be obliged if you post here specific links where you have found my such behavior that substantiates what you say. Not for myself, but for the readers to have a neutral opinion. You also refer to "10 years" - which may be factually wrong as Elgg version 1 was available in August 2008, less than 11 years ago. I have appreciation and gratitude only for you and nothing else. If you are referring to my comment mentioning your name and a few words above, then I would seriously like to delete the portion if it has offended you or if the words failed to express what I meant, but I do not see the edit option now. Feel free to edit/delete any posts or all posts not found suitable. Once again, unconditional apologies and many thanks. Please ignore and always ignore words or persons that you find not suitable.

      PS: I am glad that even after quitting Elgg you do read Elgg discussions. All the best to you.

    • The contributions you showed were incorrect, I updated that in the post. You only showed the stats for the final stable release and not all the work that was done before that (beta and rc).

      The stats also only show number of commits. A commit can be one line or rewriting the entire test suite of Elgg (thanks Ismayil).

      I'll close this discussion as requested.

    I will probably upgrade my plugins to 3.x but I don't know when. I am examining options to possibly bring funding from other projects into Elgg - we shall see. view reply

    • I will probably upgrade my plugins to 3.x but I don't know when. I am examining options to possibly bring funding from other projects into Elgg - we shall see.

    • Will it work fine for another 15 or 20 years at least

      I don't know, that's a long time. Please keep in mind Elgg has already been around for 10 years and we'll try to keep it around for the next 10, but if there are no developers helping out that will be very hard.

      will the plugins in Community repo be continued to be developed for Elgg 3x and any future versions

      If the developers find the time / money to update there plugins then yes. Keep in mind a lot of developers offer up a lot of their time to develop these plugins. They can't do paid work in the mean time, but developers need to eat too. If you like / need a plugin offer to pay (part) of the development, that way the plugin will be available for next versions to come.

      At present, the plugin repo has only 2 (Iiionly) plugins that pass the 3x filter test.

      Like you said it's early (2 days after release) the amount of work that goes into rewriting a plugin for Elgg 3.x must not be underestimated, please give the plugin devs some time (and money).

      There is no separate theme folder for Elgg 3x probably. While learning docs and paid Devs are available, a Theme repo is sadly missing for Elgg 3x.

      There is no separate theme folder, and I don't understand what you mean with a theme repo. If you mean there aren't a lot of (free) themes available for Elgg that is probably true.

      I know from experience that a lot of themes get developed for customers, there's nothing useful about them for the general public and most aren't allowed to be shared.

      Specially in the responsive mobile views, the current theme has lots of un-used white space and other issues

      Please report any issues to https://github.com/elgg/elgg/issues

    • As with any site for a high number of users you would have the necessary hardware resources AND first of all you need the knowledge to configure the server(s) correctly and to be able to solve possible performance bottlenecks showing up. You can't expect that it's just a simple job to of setting up the site regardless which script you use and it would run perfectly on its own. As you ask this questions here I suspect you might not have all the knowledge that is likely necessary, so you might need to take into account that you need to hire someone providing professional help with setting up and maintaining the site and to take the budget for this help into account for your calculation. The other scripts apart from Elgg would have the same requirements (with regards to servers and server config to have a sufficient performance). It's also unlikely that you would have 1 million users from day 1. So, you might start with a learning by doing approach if you think you can gain the necessary knowledge on your own in course of time.
