    I think they put something in the global water supply, I'm over here shaking fiendishly waiting for the release of this on the fifth. Anytime a "Business Guy" takes the time to address the people who patron the company that pays him, you can guess that he feels strongly enough about the product he is backing to get out there and let us know he wont be going anywhere. This is a confidence boost and I appreciate any company who treats their customers like people at an eye-to-eye level. This software has my stamp not only because of the software itself, but the security I feel when I know people like Ashley and the rest of the staff would actually take the time to message me back when I have a question or comment. I'm am not worried about some failure down the road. They are repaving it.

    I dont think it will be a cakewalk for Xenforo in the forum software market. It will take them time to challenge the establishment. However I do think that they have a good chance of making it big in the market.

    Thanks for the great interview Sandman. :)

    I've actually been fortunate enough to speak with Ashley and he's a solid guy.

    Nice to learn a bit more about him.

    Weak interview, you might as well have copy and pasted his old interviews about vBulletin and just replaced vBulletin with Xenforo. You didnt even ask about the most important issue, whats going to happen to Xenforo in the long run with the IB lawsuits, etc.. I think Xenforo is a nice product, but I wouldnt risk my lively hood switching to it without knowing whats going to happen with the lawsuits.

    This interview was conducted before the litigation was announced.

    Using XF would be a risk to your livelihood?

    That's the only reason I bought IPB, I really like XenForo but the thought of being screwed if they loose the law suit kept me from buying it.

    What's the latest with the Internet Brands lawsuit? It seems to have gone on a while now.

    XenForo's forums have updates. xenforo.com/community. Prolly a better place to ask than a 2-year-old interview thread. :)

    I guess from the entire interview, the thing that struck me the most was the fact that, it appeared as though he was self taught, if I’m not mistaken. This to me shows that he has real passion for what he’s doing, maybe that’s something that we can all take from the interview, that passion overrides all.
