Not sure we need a letter. lottos can probly just email the Super Admins, Admins and all the moderators to see if they can look at this thread or if there are any interest from them.


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.


That would be great, lottos.

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


On the off chance that some random fella owns it, I've registered xmbforums, which isn't as ideal but close enough.

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.


XMB can use great people like you and Xian again for sure so I hope you guys do so. Glad to hear career is going well too. :) Don't be a stranger and please keep in touch.

XMB would use them, but would never abuse them. :3

NICE! :D

I'm literally fanboying inside hoping for the best. Was miqrogroove caught up in the hurricane (or a relative/friend), then?

Also, @Mark, are you gonna commit the 1.9.12.4 stuff to the github repository you made?

Looking back, Daniel had a nice looking version that appeared to be possibly responsive then he disappeared...
http://forums.xmbforum2.com/viewthread.php?tid=776911

From some of the screenshots he posted showing his desktop, looks like he was/is on Facebook.

Also if this is him, he did another php project: https://github.com/DanielGouveia

I think it looks a bit too modern to be XMB 1.x series, but it looks really good anyway. :)

Maybe some of the features given could be worked as hacks or for the future 2.0 release? It'd be nice if the 2.0 release was a complete rewrite of the codebase to comply with modern PHP standards while being lightweight and fast for many users and packed with features. x')

When I get some free time and look on tutorialspoint for a PHP tutorial I will definitely start learning and contributing back to this community. I already managed to refer a friend (MoonlightCapital) to the community and he might be able to help out somewhat, although his PHP skill is fairly limited in terms of flexibility.

PHP/MySQL dev here


Hello, I am currently employed as the lead systems engineer (a game server hosting company startup). Although my job at PHS primarily focuses on maintaining servers, I have been a long time XMB user/PHP & SQL developer (in addition to C#, C/99 and VB.NET).

I was disheartened to see XMB taking the turn it was, and am very excited to see interest in the project once again.

I would love to help in any way I can!
