Mike Creuzer, have you ever gotten strange requests like build a theme/style that looks like board x and if so how do you deal with it? Of course you couldn't rip source x theme/style due to copyright.

Yeah all the time actually, especially in the Minecraft world. We've done some of the bigger clan and community resource sites, so its a constant request from sites wanting to try and rub shoulders with them. But we simply tell them that we do not copy design work, even our own. But yeah its a good question, definitely goofy thing people do :p

Hi Mike. Thanks for taking the time to communicate with everyone. I'd love to have a bit more details on the XF2.0 support. You know we at SavvyAuthors rely pretty heavily on your new addons and the ones you kindly took over from Jon. Do you have any more details on what is going to transfer easily and what we'll need to invest in to make it worth your while to move over? I, of course, have a list. :)

Leslie, thanks so much. Your support is why we are here, so we are equally as grateful to have you as a client!

The long and short of it is that all add-ons need to be rebuilt for XF2. XenForo essentially rewrote the software from the ground-up. The front-end framework is different, the back-end framework is different. Themes and add-ons both have to be built anew. But of course we have begun the process to begin rebuilding all products!
