Another month, another creation...
As some of you may or may not know, for the last 2 solid months, Shelley and I have poured a ton of time, into a different site. We both "attempted" to promote it the best we could. Everywhere you looked, 25 posts to show your site, 50 posts to show your site... Worse part, on many of these, you aren't really interested in the site as a whole, you practically spam your way up to 20 just to get your site a spot to be seen. (You can only answer so many poll questions before it gets repetitive).
<---Enter xfShowcase -->
Why the name? Well, a certain add-on was donated to to the site to start it off, with the developer knowing what I had planned. A nod of sorts to him, but also because of the fact it is your Xenforo Site Showcase.
Mission? Our goal is pretty simple; to bring in and actively promote our XenForo based sites, mingle with other XF owners and get help or input from various fans.
We will not require you to have any posts to enter your site into our Site Showcase. You can post, leave, that's fine. We have rules on what is allowed to be posted. We are not ones to judge what content you have, but know if you are caught submitting a site using nulled or pirated software, or host nulled and pirated software, your site will be removed and you will be banned.
We will be using many of the add-ons you see here. We want everyone to have a relaxful place they can join, know at least a couple other people (from here obviously), and test out Post Ratings, Notifications, Showcase, TagiaChat Pro, Soft Responsive Theme, xFArcade... different things that they may not be able to make a decision on yet, but want a place to simply look at it in action.
A few things we are doing:
- Currently, we are also offering a very easy way to "verify" your license. We know it is not foolproof by any stretch, but some license owners are happy to show they own a license.
- There will not ever be Adsense, Adbright, or any other Ads. All of our "advertisements" will be from the xF family of sites. There hasn't been a decision on how many, or where, but they will not be intrusive, and will mesh with the site.
- Our site will volunteer to test many modifications, but those will be our choosing. You will get input from several xF well-known members, so you know you will at least get some feedback.
- We will be posting reviews of add-ons, themes, modifications, and graphics (A/T/M/G).
- We hope to be able to generate enough activity and interest to do giveaways of A/T/M/G.
- There will be interviews (not of the huge website owners) but of the A/T/M/G developers. Some of these talented individuals never get a chance to speak about anything, only to reply to why or if some other feature can be added.
- Guides have started to be posted on some add-ons, and will continue to be tweaked, enhanced, etc. These will be free to copy to your site, to help your members as well.
- We will be open to any and all suggestions, with the exception of the site goal. Everything else can be discussed, but we want a place for fans again.
Due to the fact we cannot completely control who downloads what, only Add-Ons or Themes or Modifications posted are done so by the author. No one will be copy/pasting information from here, unless it is their own content.
If you notice, we didn't link to any of our pages, or what we have thus far. If you are interested in the site, feel free to stop by and join in. Chris Deeming and I are currently working on a few different ways to bring the fan aspect back to XenForo. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer.
