What I would like to see is for IB to stop adding new things altogether, and fix the growing mountain of things which are already either broken, or "functioning as designed" to a bad design.

because shoehorning code into a platform that works is easier than upgrading us to the latest version of vbulletin or moving us to something nicer like xenforo

We aren't going Xen anytime soon, and I'd rather be on this vB codebase, our team have re-written pretty much all of it. The biggest issues raised here are our fault to be sure, but the CKEditor code is open source and some of the bugs were not caught prior to us implementing it which has also lead to the slowness of fixes being rolled out.

I believe we are beginning to turn that around and we are not focused on new efforts until the outstanding things are resolved.
