    Registrations using throwaway email accounts - thoughts?

    I block fake email registrations and validate all email. @Xon 's addon is great for registrations: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/signup-abuse-detection-and-blocking.6812/ Also useful: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/j-email-check.5753/

    Check Add-On update

    Check Add-On update

    The upgrade notification comes from the API that is maintained by the developer. The developer keeps track of all the addons and versions. And needs to be able to find those somewhere. For private addons its impossible. For public addons on hundreds of external websites its not really doable...

    Threadloom to be retired

    Discord does forums

    Discord is already absorbing members and engagement. This may well become a serious challenge similar to Facebook and Reddit. I suspect challenges like this will keep coming. User expectations will change and the bar keeps getting raised.
