Sounds good! I've been a professional full-stack dev for the last 6 years now, maybe thinking about having a relook at XMB, and seeing if I can jazz it up with some more advanced features.


Good to hear from you again Mark! Hopefully we all can revive XMB!


Xian, good to hear from you too!

I've been looking to get my teeth into a new open source project for a while now.

From what I recall XMB 2.0 never gained any traction, so perhaps it's time to restart?
I have some ideas already if anyone wants to hear them?

Also, who owns xmbforum.com domain and would we be able to get it back?

Ah.. I remember the talks way back when we discussed 2.0.

I tried to look up that domain also to see if we can re-gain control of it. Apparently something happened with iEntry:

http://forums.xmbforum2.com/viewthread.php?tid=776659

I'm not sure if anything can be done with the domain.

Perhaps we utilize xmbforum.net? or .org?

That's rather disappointing...

xmbforum.org would be fine too, but if iEntry own all the rights to it then we wouldn't be able to make it official.

The last thing I would want to propose is a name change

That's the part that confuses me also. xmb has always been open source. He shouldn't have owned the rights to it. It was created by the community in part.

Then I see no reason not to buy xmbforum.org

Neither do I. Hopefully others will weigh in on this.

I see the Super Admins don't visit anymore, but lottos is thankfully still around.
Any likelihood in them returning?

I'm hoping xmbforum.org is bought. It looks more professional and serves the community better in my opinion. :)

This is proble something lottos can answer. We should also try and email all the staff on this board to see what the consensus is.

I'm willing to purchase the domain name(s) also.

I think XMB 2.0 shouldn't do what all the other forums are trying to do, and instead remain simple and lightweight while being packed full of features, does anyone else agree with me? I dislike the forum format of Vanilla and Flarum, and also don't really like the way MyBB is heading.

I hope XMB 1.9.x last version will also be supported for legacy forums and such, even if for a while so people can upgrade and get support for some time before they have to migrate. :)

Not that I'm aware of. There was a Matt B who had an xmb repo for a supposed v2 release.

I can't - I'm a moderator, I have no access to the forum backend, nor phpmyadmin. While I registered this domain and host the static content, Microgroove, the last active dev actually hosts this forum.
I can email him and inform him of the revived interest.
