    Thanks, Internet Brands! :mad:

    So, I go to xenStyles to find out how to do a particular thing.... only to find out xenStyles closed it's doors.

    Here's what the master said:
    If Internet Brands wins this lawsuit, I'm going to take a drastic action. I'm tired of this garbage!

    The nice thing about a business like that is that there is basically no overhead except for server costs which can be readily scaled down to match the size of your business. They should scale down, unless of course their sales have declined to zero which I assume is the case since they closed shop completely.

    I just bought 3 skins, and this means I lost around 65 dollars. #@^& you iB!

    What a nice farewell... :rolleyes:

    You'll see more and more people loosing hope. There is no good in sending disrespectful words after them.

    I tried to post this in the other thread, but it was closed before I had a chance. Since I have been an active supporter here since before day 1, I think I should respond (although I had no intentions of discussing my business decisions here until I saw the other thread):

    Yes, sales pretty much ceased over the last few months but this has been an ongoing trend (for me at least) since this past spring. I could have kept it open but I would rather focus my efforts on a thriving platform with a future. ;)

    You're not out anything. You have three world-class skins that work on the current version of XF and a means to support as long as your licenses are active...unlike some, I've not abandoned my customers. :)

    I can certainly vouch for john in that he supports his customers and takes very good care of them as he's done for many years through many platforms.

    Uh huh, and what if xenForo has a new version and you have to modify it to suit? What then?

    By that time, your license for the skins will most likely be expired.

    I'd like to show empathy and wish John the best of luck, but most likely my post will be deleted.

    I think all about this that needs to be said has been said. I do not wish for my personal decisions to be the cause of any unrest here. I wish you all the best and thanks for all the fish. :)
