    Do you think that we'll see a possible rebuild of the old team, maybe soon enough - well, minus Scott maybe?

    I think that all depends on sales :)

    You never know. I am guessing after this summer some of the pre-IB vBguys will fire themselves and join XenForo.

    Would need a crystal ball for that one ........

    For some reason... I actually really really doubt it.

    That's just me, though.

    I can say it's a likely scenario.

    This is going to be very interesting.

    Was there a non-compete clause signed with IB by anybody ?

    IB is in CA.


    GodForum.com and jmurrayhead like this.

    I was under the impression that there was. But I also believe it is expired by now. Or will be by the time this software is released.

    Non-compete claus won't stand in California, where IB is based.

    IMO: hopefully not. You need "veterans" mixed with new blood.

    We sort of have that with the current vBulletin; but that's more management based. Whilst I agree with what you are saying, is this the best thing at the early stage of the product?

    A new developer needs to be well versed with forum products, to understand it.

    it'd be interesting to see Scott come back. :)

    I don't think that's likely as he's with Facebook now. Not to say it's impossible and he won't, but he's moved on and working on other things.

    Ah yes that's right. I forgot he works for Facebook now. :p

    Indeed, from the originals, it's just Freddie and me.

    Jerry Hutchings? Hi :)
    Wow, Darren's gone, he's interested in xenForo? I wonder if both Freddie and Jerry will come to xenForo, in the future?

    When I sold a business to the Daily Mail group in the UK I was advised that the non-compete clause in the 'sale of business' contract was unenforceable under EU-wide law, I had the same advice when I left the last company I worked for in respect of the 'employment' contract.
