If you are able to, we'd appreciate some help with renewing our XenForo license and add-ons

Hi gang,

Our licenses expired a few months ago, meaning that we're no longer eligible for XenForo (the forum software we use) and style (the template we use is called Omni and was leased from PixelExit.com) updates. We can still use the software just fine - we just aren't able to keep up with the latest releases which may or may not include new features and security fixes.

We did something similar a , and the community came through and effectively funded the entire operation and we were able to secure another year of support.

There appears to have been no major XenForo releases (we are on v2.1.x and the current available version is v2.1.10) since our licenses expired, so there are unfortunately no fancy new features that would be introduced with any immediate updates. However, it would not be unrealistic to expect v2.2 to release within the next 12 months and include new features. Regardless, the request for funds is necessitated so that we can keep up to date security and stability-wise.

The license renewal with Pixel Exit would mean that we are also able to keep on top of new style updates (which may or may not include bug fixes and include support for future XenForo features).

Here are a breakdown of the costs involved:

  • XenForo license renewal: $55
  • Pixel Exit license renewal: $20


If anyone would be willing to help contribute towards the costs, that would be real swell. The donation add-on we use on the forum is a little buggy (has been for as long as we've used it, to be honest), so the best way to forward any funds would be via the PayPal.me widget that I haven't yet worked out how to embed into this post. I will update this thread as and when and if donations arrive.

Any and all help would be awesome, if you have anything to spare. As a thank you, anyone whom donates $5 or more will receive a new badge to display on your profile/post info. The badge is temporarily visible on my profile/post info (underneath the 'Admin' and 'Staff' badges) for preview purposes. visible on @ef9dante_oSsshea and @LordOfDarkness profiles/post infos. Thanks, guys!

Thanks for your time. Feel free to ask any questions.

How much left, Mr. @Steve? :ninja:
Currently at £30 ($37.05 according to DuckDuckGo currency converter).

Glad to help man, this place is a second home
Music to my ears, man. Thanks again.

Only natural to make payments on a house then.

All jokes aside I also donated. Got a bit more money what with all my overtime recently.
Thank you, buddy! We're pretty much halfway thanks to you and @ef9dante_oSsshea

I can’t remember what I paid. I do recall having to carry out some sort of ritual which involved giving a blood offering to the greater forum beings.

Could have been $150.

Appreciate it!

LordOfDarkness has already answered, but just to add that the reason for the price difference is that the 'Platinum Supporter' costs the same as one month of dedicated server hosting; effectively giving me a one-month reprieve from paying the bill.

Thank you for considering us! There is currently no other way to donate, but I can appreciate that other solutions would be very helpful. I'll have to look into that for the future.

@Carlos and @ef9dante_oSsshea Thank you both for the latest donations to come in this evening! The two of you together took us up to around $80 with the previous donations (by @ef9dante_oSsshea and @LordOfDarkness!). With the $5 surplus, perhaps we could put it towards a game code giveaway? Steam/Xbox/PlayStation voucher, maybe? Will have to get the old brain thinking!

Guys, thank you again for donations and for going above and beyond. I'll be getting the licenses renewed tomorrow (Thursday) and look at getting the forum and skin updated. I'll keep this thread open to post updates on that front.

I've removed the donation link from the original post and locked down the emblem for @Carlos @ef9dante_oSsshea and @LordOfDarkness. We're good for funds now so please do not donate for the license renewal fees as they are 100% sorted now.

Blown away - thanks again, guys!
