On February 24, 2022, Russia attacked Ukraine like Nazi Germany attacked Poland in 1939. At this time, right now, civilians, children and our guys who stood up to protect our country from the invader are dying. To remain silent now is complicity in a crime against the Ukrainian people. Russian silence has resulted in death and destruction in my country. Therefore, licenses for all Russians have been canceled, support and purchase of licenses are no longer available for them, as well as payment in rubles.

I also encourage all developers to do the same.

We must show the Russians that they are accomplices in the murders that are taking place in Ukraine and isolate them from the whole world for this.

Appeal to the Russians: join the protests, arm, cooperate and help overthrow the Putin regime. The time for peaceful protests is over! It's time to fight for our common future.

Once the Putin regime is overthrown, the Russians will be able to use my products and services again.

Stop war in Ukraine! 🇺🇦
Слава Украине! 🇺🇦

Hey! Ho! Hey!

New Year's Eve is close and I am dressing up in Santa to give you discounts and tell you about upcoming plans for this year 🥳

This year has not been as productive for me in terms of the release of add-ons and functionality updates for them, as 2020. There are several reasons for this, the main ones being:
1. I was tired of XenForo and did not see any prospects for development in it, I got bored
2. I was working on another project and I simply did not have time

But I hope that in 2022 I can put more effort into the XenForo branch than this year, so I want to share with you my accumulated plans and ideas. Over the course of a year of working on other projects, I have developed my skills in technologies such as Vue.JS, Quasar, Laravel, AdonisJS, NodeJS and cryptocurrency blockchains, which opens up new opportunities for me and, accordingly, for my clients, because many interesting things await them.

Store update
The first and most important part that stops me from developing new add-ons and functionality for them is the state of my store. It was whipped up to kickstart sales, which makes it completely unattractive.
This year I want to release an updated version of my store, which will include a more user-friendly interface, the ability to buy an anonymous domain if you do not want to link yours; subscription plans for add-on packs and cryptocurrency service (more details below)


Live conversations (Will be in Live pack)
The year is 2022, and the correspondence in XenForo looks like this
1640865145928.png

LOL. Where did we turn the wrong way? :D

It’s time to fix it! And I’m taking on the role rider of progress. This add-on will add a full-fledged messenger to your forum, which will allow you to comfortably communicate with people without the need to refresh the page and without situations when you have to switch pages in the conversation in search of the desired message (pagination in correspondence in 2022, we definitely turned the wrong way 😅)

Live chat (Will be in Live pack)
Where in a real lively forum without a chat, where members can freely chat in a live mode? NO-WHE-RE! I already have a free chat add-on that works in live mode, but obviously its setup is too complicated for regular users, and in general add-on needs modernization. Good that modernization and simplicity are the basic principles from which I start when developing the upcoming products :)

Live threads & alerts (Will be in Live pack)
Again, the lack of real-time work in 2022 is absurd for large projects. Although, mainly, discussions on the forums are conducted with pauses between posts, it would be nice to be able to see new posts and people who are now typing a message in this thread in real time. And my add-on will deal with the modernization of this part of XenForo 🙂

Live pack, live pack... What is "Live pack"?
Live pack is a pack of add-ons that will modernize your forum piece by piece.
For each section of the forum, its own addition will be released, which will either completely replace the existing functionality (like conversations), or simply supplement it with the ability to work in real time (like threads). All of them will be available to you on a Live pack subscription. It will include a subscription to the add-ons themselves and their updates, and to an additional live notification service (which will be either Pusher or my own service).

The advantage of this package is that all the add-ons from this list will be enough to simply install and enjoy, no additional hassle in the form of setting up the environment on the server 😉

Cryptocurrency services
The demand for cryptocurrencies is growing and platforms need to adapt and implement them in the same way as PayPal or Visa.
But they are much easier to integrate yourself, because there are already ready-made tools and detailed instructions. But with cryptocurrencies, everything is much more complicated, especially if you do not want to use third-party services that tighten their rules every year. For such cases, I have already released an add-on that allows you to set up and accept payments on your server in Bitcoin. But this add-on has a couple BUT:
1. Server setup still requires knowledge and experience, and can be difficult for regular users
2. Bitcoin itself is not the most profitable cryptocurrency in terms of fees and small payments

To solve these problems and develop cryptocurrency payments, I want to provide an add-on service that will only need to be installed and added a payment gateway for the required cryptocurrency. And you can already accept payments :)

But how will it work? Where will the money be stored, how will it be withdrawn, and what will be the fees for this?
I tell you: the add-on will be linked to your account at devsell.io. Payments will be sent to the store's servers and all funds will be stored there. It will be possible to withdraw funds or see the balance both in the forum control panel and in the store.
The business model for monetizing this service has not yet been fully thought out in my head, so if you have any suggestions, I would listen to them. Perhaps it will be a subscription service, or perhaps the store will charge its additional commission when withdrawing.



These are the plans for 2022, I hope that everything will work out.
I want to wish you a happy new year, but I don't. I'd better wish you to make this year for yourself the way you want to see it and enjoy it! Hey! Ho! Hey!

P. S. Santa accepts donations and sponsorships for the above ideas! :3 All donators will become my elves and receive love, ha-ha <3

Sorry I won't be doing that. The Russian citizens shouldn't suffer because of what their government does.
Citizens of many countries fight with their government if something does not suit them. Since the citizens of the Russian Federation refuse to fight what is happening now, they approve of it, and accordingly, they should be isolated from the civilized world.
Some people in this situation somehow separate the government from the people, forgetting that there are 140 million people in this country who allow what is happening now to happen. Inaction in some cases is also considered an onset. And this is just the case.

Don't spread hate because of politics. When I was young I could see that on my own eyes. Most of the people don't want wars and don't hate each other. Well, I hope I don't live in a fantasy world...
I understand that many Russians do not want this war and are adequate people. But at the same time they do nothing to stop it. The entire burden of the fight against Putinism fell on the shoulders of the citizens of Ukraine. Inaction makes them complicit.

⚠️ I also ask you to pay attention to the fact that sanctions and hatred are different things. I call for sanctions against the Russian Federation and Russians, and not for hatred.

Just like during the war with fascist Germany, now one cannot remain silent or stand aside. You are either against this obscurantism and doing something, or you support it.

I hope that the developers who refused to boycott Russian citizens will rethink their decisions.

🇺🇦

I stopped watching Russian porn. Hoping it makes Putin think!
Let's be serious, at our level there is not much to do... If not, mark our disapproval if this is the case. International sanctions are probably going to have an impact on our lives too and this I gladly accept in the name of peace which must be the only way out of this conflict, and achieving peace is not distilling evil.

The essence of economic sanctions against Russia is not so much an attempt to intimidate the government as an attempt to point out to the people of Russia that their government is their responsibility. And if they want a normal future, they need to fight.
You can say that we can do nothing in this situation, but you can just do it. ;)

With much regret, I don't think this particular flavour of thread has a future here.

To be clear, we are 100% with the people of Ukraine and find the actions of Putin nothing short of a disgrace.

But we cannot blame individuals in Russia for the behaviour of their Government. I'm sure you know, but there are a considerable number who have been protesting against the invasion of Ukraine even though this very likely directly puts them and their families at risk of persecution by the Government and military in Russia.

Unless Vladimir Putin himself comes to you to purchase one of your add-ons we do not condone steps to refuse their custom. It is, of course, entirely your choice who you choose to do business with, but we won't support an assertion or divisive campaign against Russian citizens generally.

I appreciate this was originally a Third party services & offers thread, but as the content of the first post has changed and it now contains off-topic discussion, I am moving this to off-topic and closing on the basis of the rules there that this is now a potentially highly charged political discussion.
