A decision has been made for Waindigo Enterprises Ltd to cease trading later today (17 July 2014).
All add-ons and branding rights are being transferred to the Waindigo Foundation, a registered charity. As such, there will be no change to the add-ons available to download from XenForo Resource Manager and the charity will continue to benefit from commercial licensing fees coming from the add-ons.
A new company, Waindigo Ltd, has been formed as a 100% subsidiary of the Waindigo Foundation. This new company, will provide bespoke add-on development and support services. Waindigo Ltd is an entirely new company and will not take on any legal responsibility from Waindigo Enterprises Ltd.
I am keen that no customers will lose out as a result of this change, or even notice anything different at all.
In the interim period, any outstanding work will be taken on by the Waindigo Foundation. I will be volunteering full-time for the Waindigo Foundation for the next 2 weeks to clear the majority of this work, alongside Dom who will be paid by the charity. It is not anticipated that there will be any delays to work being performed as a result of this change. Any existing customers of Waindigo Enterprises Ltd who have specific concerns should make contact in the usual way.
I am happy to answer any questions or concerns that anyone has here, although please do bear in mind that this is a sensitive situation and there are a number of creditors involved (mostly banks), any of which may choose to legally challenge this move.
I am very hopeful that Waindigo will now be much stronger than before, no longer strangled by debts, the majority of which were built up in the earlier years of XenForo when there was considerable uncertainty about XenForo's future.
If anyone would like to support, please consider donating to the Waindigo Foundation. Donations can be made by Paypal:
Thanks for all your support and I hope that Waindigo will be able to continue to serve the XenForo community for many more years to come.
