Themehouse is inconsistent, they bought addons from several different developers.

I guess in terms of longevity and consistency, maybe Kier, Mike and Chris? Sometimes it can take a while between updates, but the final result is usually pretty solid.

I noticed that recently. I think they acquired all his add ons when he left the scene (which was a massive amount at the time), but it appears he might now be back, but working for them? I only noticed the affiliation (I assume?) due to his sig the other day.

Yes, Waindigo works for Themehouse and produces xenforo addons for TH.

We never bought any add-ons that's just people guessing. We tried to maintain them as best we can, successfully on some, not so much on others. That was years ago.

Ok, ok boys let's not go down that path.

With due respect, Mike Creuzer you or your company did say you acquired plugins. So, let's get that out of the way. It's not a bad thing. I doubt that's what the user was trying to say about you. Just because he says you're inconsistent does not imply you're incompetent. Just that you have some hits and some misses. Just an observation.

Referring to Waindigo as was mentioned.
Thanks for clarifying as it was confusing me. Because I understood that you purchased Borboles addons at two times.

In regards to Waindigo/Jon W: For how long has Jon been working for Themehouse? You mentioned years ago that you had great respect for and supported Jon and at the time it gave me the impression that there was a working relationship of some kind. Which now obviously exists.

In the items I purchased from Themehouse, I have (at least, haven't looked through all of them) addons developed by Audentio (Themehouse), Waindigo and Faqe.

The inconsistency is that many of the addons have been abandoned, with outstanding bugs. Those with ongoing development faired much better and bugs have been taken care of.

It's not that I won't use Themehouse, I use many of their addons and still recommended them to clients. It's rather that I am careful about which addons I use. If they do not show they've been updated in while I won't use them (unless they are a simple addon) out of concern it will be abandoned.

What Themehouse maintains is great stuff, and they certainly have competent development. But there is such a thing as taking on more addons than can reasonably be maintained by a small staff.

Thank you for validating what I said by mentioning AndyB, do a search on him here on TAZ.
