Lawrence I learned part of my current knowledge from you as well. Your XenStaff add-on was the basis for my first stand alone add-on (which was a server screen shot image viewer lol). Though XenStaff itself heavily modified also still powers TBG's roster until I finally write the solution I intended all along.
I actually credit you and @Fuhrmann along with the numerous questions asked by other developers in their early developments in my ability to finally comprehend Xenforo and the MVC concept. Its a difficult task when you are switching languages and learning a platform at the same time.
I hate to see it all go down like this with the community. Some of the events prior to this made me not even want to release any of my own original work. That's not even counting someone ripping off the entire site I am working on and stealing designs that I was going to release for free as add-ons... But such is life. It's nice to see people reconcile.
