Introducing a new templating system like Twig will be a tremendous improvement to the theme system as a whole as it will allow us to have far fewer templates and will be much more flexible than the current system. Implementing SASS support is also incredibly important because it will allow us to use more modular CSS.

It would be a waste of everybody's time (not just the MyBB team's, but also any plugin or theme creator) for us to create an official responsive theme for 1.8 (which would have to be hacked together and would be far from ideal) and then release a new theme based on a new system for 1.9. That's why we are taking the approach described by Euan above.

I say this as someone who runs a heavily customized forum with a responsive design. It doesn't use MyBB's stylesheet system - it was easier and quicker to just roll my own stylesheet with SASS. That's why we need to make the improvements to MyBB's template and theme systems first.

I can agree with all of that.  But why would this take a year?  It should be the only thing MyBB is working on.  You say you did it with your own forum using SASS. Did that take you a year? 

What if we took up a collection and offered a reward for a 60 day release?  Would that get the team motivated?  I have a feeling we'd raise thousands of dollars for that. I'd personally go $x,xxx to make it happen by the team. I'm already working with someone making a fantastic design for 1.8x.

Using Twig should make things faster too.  It's already a template engine.

You say it's a waste of time for the team to create an official responsive theme. But how do you think the rest of us feel knowing that we may all be wasting our time by making an unofficial responsive theme?  It angers me that you're not seeing the importance of this and how it's a serious problem for admins. 

There is a disconnect from the teams needs and the communities.  You guys don't get it. WE NEED RESPONSIVE NOW. Telling us a year is crazy.  You should have done this a year ago.  We have to wait till 2019 to have a mobile ready design? Are you kidding me! 

Unbelievable. I have to agree with OP about asking whether MyBB has a future or not.   Read the first post again.  

Quote:The way I see it, is that MyBB is slowly dying because of the lack of compromise of the community and the developers.

It's not slowly dying imho.  It's near-death actually and on life-support.  A responsive theme is the adrenaline everyone desperately needs from the team.  If MyBB team wants to ignore the urgency then fine.  It's time everyone consider other options then and a fork will have to happen.  Because this is ridiculous.

I cant see anywhere where anybody is saying ti will take a year? My last post in this thread stated that I hoped to have a release ready in 6 months, though that's only an estimate.
