Correct naming, but still wrong decision to start a new one. I already have a module for WHMCSEven twitta wants to have forums. They are calling it "communities."
Same as me. Don't care to monetize my forum or have a huge number of members. I still find the customization process highly rewarding after 4 years and always look forward to new xf releases.I've a friend who operates a local forum for 20 years now. Imagine that still he is with vB3. He does not care for income. Never added advertisements, never had paid membership. He operates it just for his hobby. Such type of Forum will be always up and running.
I'm coding Addon Modules for vBulletin 3/4 since 2005. Maybe with different usernames, but was me. The most downloaded mods were those ones relevant to "money" with flagship to be my eCommerce which was a full eCommerce solution for digital products. Now is at vb.org Graveyard so search don't brings it up, but if you've time, try to find it.Do not exaggerate, most people who create a forum do not hoping to become a millionaire! People are not crazy and besides no one has become that rich with a simple forum.
