Has Mark left Vanilla?

aeryaery Gtricks Forum in 2.2 :) ✭✭✭

Mark O'Sullivan is the co-founder of Vanilla. I could not spot him now in the leadership team.

I know its off topic and anything to do with vanilla development, but just interested to know.

    I have discovered via Facebook that Mark has moved on to Twitter. He is working for them since 2012.

    Also wondered now for a while, years ago Mark was active in his community. :/

    • VanillaSkins | Plugins, Themes, Graphics and Custom Development for Vanilla
  • He is entitled to some privacy.

    Where your work isn't exactly something that falls under the term privacy, especially if you go ahead and run a blog post about it.

    It is relevant to the Vanilla community who is working on the project, so it is strange that this topic is in the off-topic section.

  • When someone creates a discussion he can decide in which category he posts. As long as someone like @Lincoln or @Todd doesn't join this discussion / move the discussion, I won't touch the category.

    It doesn't matter anyway since we're all looking at new discussions trough the /discussions link.

    But it is not his work that is the point. Last time I checked Vanilla is inc/ltd. not plc. He is entitled to disappear if he wants to.

    It is public knowledge that he is now in California. The rest is not public knowledge and remains private knowledge. That is how it works, what is in the public domain is public, what is private is private. He doesn't have to give you a response at all.

    Absolutely.

    As far as I know Vanilla (Lussumo) was developed by Mark. Therefore it makes him Vanilla founder.

    Now, the environment is completely changed and the .inc also have CEO. Vanilla have become professional.

    Since, we all here reply on open source development from a professional profit seeking company, aren't we entitled some information?

    Mark is no longer employed directly at Vanilla, but he is still on our board and involved. Mark and I are both co-founders of Vanilla and I am still very much with the company.

    2012 was an amazing year for Vanilla and 2013 is looking to be much better than that.

    I don't quite understand your point, first the licence of the software, and the profitability doesn't really have anything to do with it.

    You aren't really "entitled" to anything other then what you can gleam from company house (or equivalent), which you can do quite easily, as they are not "off-shore".

    Of course if they are happy to give you the information, then fine.

    Someone asked a simple question if he's no longer working for/on Vanilla, and you come out insinuating that there's some "big story" we shouldn't be asking about. Whatever.

  • What drama? aery had already answered the question by this point.

    I said he is entitled to privacy, If he wants it. He didn't make an announcement on this forum, nor does he owe anyone that.

    I'm not really sure what significance of this, as even before he left it was a while back he was contributing regularly to the core, other than some select things. I can only gleam from that he was working more on their other side of the business, which is the more private side if you like, but I can only speculate.

    The only thing that matters is that development is ongoing, and you can track that pretty well.

    Of course is it sad to see him go, as I remember the v1 community, However this is a very different community to the v1 community. There is only a select few members still here. But the community now is much bigger and stronger.

    People go through different circumstances.
