Can non-licensed members release add-ons?

Hi, let me start by saying I love XenForo.

I am making an add-on for another website, and may make more in the future. However I am not licensed myself, I don't really have a website, so don't have the need for a license.

I was just wondering if non-licensed members are able to release add-ons, because I would hate to not be able to release things I make.

I'm still considering buying a license, just not sure if I have the money to since I don't really need it.

You could be associated with someone's license which would give you full access to the forums.
Just to spell this out, ask someone you've done work for to go to their Customer Area
http://xenforo.com/customers/
login
click Forum Users on the right
add your forum name Clepto

Then you can access all the development forums and put your addons in here.

This has no effect on the customer's account. It gives you no extra access to do with their site, and no access to the customer area and their downloads of XF. You are not responsible for paying their licence.
It's ONLY for expanded forum access and use for you.

You also don't need a license to just put the file up for download and link to it from wherever you want.
Except that such a thread or post would be off topic so would be removed.

The Resource Manager is now the only place where add-ons can be published here on XenForo.com.

Yeah, I more meant that he can legally post it wherever he wants and link to it. Drop the URL in his sig, etc. Not that I'm suggesting it, I'm just saying that it's not illegal to write mods for xF and post them other than xenforo.com.
