I am sure he is a terrific guy. It was never my intention to flame him. (Though some accused me of that).
All I said was that our not for profit corporation cannot transact business that way, and I will not do it.
We have purchased several add-ons from coders here and have been extremely satisfied. We have also had some custom work done, and have been extremely satisfied.
I hope all works out for all involved.
I use the word "hopefully" quite a lot but that doesn't mean that I am not confident You don't know what's going to happen to you tomorrow. So I hope nothing bad befalls on me and I can carry on with my life.I have no doubts he'll deliver. My concern is will he maintain the addon after its completed, fix bugs and add features. As this can be time consuming and take commitment.
I hear you. But I also see this:
Makes me wonder. You know?
True.... And I mentioned elsewhere my reasons for leaving the community back then and everything has been patched up with the members deeply involved in the project and you can expect a new thread related to the same thing in the near futureMakes me wonder. You know?
that is a fair point. hmm
I will say this though, I really need this addon/system and just because he's made mistakes in the past doesn't mean he will make them again.
He's been part of the Xenforo community for years, has made some great addons and I think he needs a clean break. His classifieds system will prove he's capable and trustworthy hopefully. And i'm willing to take that chance on it.
haha... yeah, a healthy competition do drive more ideas and features... with a competitive price
