Is there anyone who is NOT using Vanilla as a forum?

    "I use it as a family meeting place and picture post to keep friends and family updated with news of my daughter, who just so happens to be two days younger than Vanilla 1." yeh. closed vanilla forum for some friends\ relatives is the best way to use it. One of the best things ...

    Let me give you an example of where the to do list could help me:

    I would prefer Vanilla to, say, a CMS, Basecamp or a classic forum for a lightweight collaboration with a small group of folks I am helping on a personal project. They are computer literate but not junkies. Vanilla seems ideal for their convenient login, posting, categorizing, whispering et al. Somewhat less polished for RSS and email notifications at this stage, but okay enough.

    The 'to do' list add-on is not vital but a nifty way to brainstorm about a few of the tasks this little group will consider without having to go nuts about it and have heavy project management overhead.

    Ditto page manager. I can add a few static pages as needed that collect together ... whatever. Some web links. Ideas. Connective narrative for the project if we need it. Google calendar, perhaps.

    So long as core is kept simple (note why I chose in first place), the more extensions the merrier. Hundreds. Thousands.

    (Of course, I could semi-integrate Tada into a Vanilla forum on a static page and I might at some point for the right use. But an add-on might be even simpler).
