    With the way the term customers is viewed these days, a more friendly tone on the forum category description may be "You must be a XenForo License Holder..."

    Food for thought, great forums :)

    I work in the customer service industry and I don't find it offensive to refer to my clients as customers.

    "He's currently with a customer may I take a message?"

    "He's currently with a license holder may I take a message?"

    In different instances the effect would vary. No doubt your point is a great one.

    Client is also a great alternative to customer, but either way, it is just a matter of opinion I suppose. I have heard clients being offended by being referred to as just a customer. Thou these days people seem to find almost anything complain about.

    Thank you for your opinions on the matter.

    we actually try to use the word "partner" for our "vendors"

    i guess you could extend that the other way.

    I didn't even know the term customer had a negative connotation, I must be way behind with the times. :confused: Client(s) sounds good to me.
