    I was wondering what does 3rd party mean and, what are the 2 other parties. Weird question but I see that everywhere and I don't know what it means xD

    Thanks

    1st party would be xenForo.
    2nd party would probably be you.
    3rd party is someone like @Waindigo who releases an addon for you to use

    In software development, second party tends to be a developer owned by, but not part of the company developing the base product. In other words, if XenForo Ltd bought Waindigo's company, for example, but didn't incorporate it into their own company, Waindigo would then be a second company developer.
