This is not actually a flashmob because voters are not random people told to do something they actually don’t need. All voters from here are developing with Yii. Noone forcing to vote, post is just informing one can do so.
A reason for p.s. is that one day developer can switch from his current IDE to another one. For example, from NetBeans that already support some frameworks to PhpStorm.
That’s a wise move and generally I support it. That’s why a link to WI-451 is provided.
Anyway, JetBrains PhpStorm Team decides what is important and what can be done later, we are just showing there is Yii and it worth looking at it as one of the good PHP frameworks out there.
