Additional Information

During our Christmas giveaway, we polled the community to determine which software they'd most like to see. Overwhelmingly, respondents chose MyBB. However, over the course of the last two months there has been exactly three posts in the section. We've averaged close to 11k downloads per week over that span and MyBB has accounted for a whopping ~200 total downloads. As a result, we're doing away with the MyBB section altogether. If you'd like to seek support for MyBB, you're welcome to seek out other third-party communities (such as NulledBB) or the official MyBB forums. We will continue to maintain the MyBB file category for the foreseeable future although we will continue to monitor activity for that category and we may ultimately determine it's not worth maintaining.

As we draw closer to the 4.3 release of IPS, we will begin focusing our efforts on 4.2, 4.3, and beyond with a two-part phasing out of support for IPS 4.1 by closing the 4.1 forums and merging 4.1 content under Legacy Software. Our 4.1 forums will be closed shortly after we release our edition of 4.3 and the content will be moved a short time after that.

Lastly, our changes to the Marketplace are motivated by inclusion. We've enforced a 25-post requirement rule for the entirety of the Marketplace's existence on WebFlake in an effort to protect our members from fraud/abuse but we realize that this has ultimately had an undesired effect of heavily gating a worthwhile section behind a post count that cannot possibly fulfill our original intention. We've introduced a selection of new restrictions that users should find far more lenient. We will be heavily monitoring our Marketplace but please remember we are not liable for any transaction you enter into with another member on our site. We will take action against accounts found to be in violation of our guidelines but that is the extent of our reach.

Have a great week!
