Interesting offer, yet indeed a complex proposal.
@BitAvenue - Know nothing about the software you've used, but if trading is the #1 detail here, perhaps you've found something that is the way go.
However, do know some things about the Xenforo software, thought it might interest you involved in this decision, what I know is only a small fraction compared to the 2 guys that put together the site now running that platform here:http://timemonkradio.com/
Both good friends, both likely to be happy to talk to you via Skype with that purchase decision & it's good/bad points from a backside operations standpoint, both want to do anything they can to help out the BitCoin community. All I've heard from them is nothing but great stuff about how the Xenforo platform is 1000x better than what we're running over on the old closed vBulletin forum where I hang out most, got to say though, this place has really got me addicted at the moment!
Anyway, the Xenforo beta software was purchased last year, while still in beta & TMR really only got launched in a working fashion this last January, the site is still a work in progress, all of us work full time with day jobs, but it has come along fast since that launch, in a big way thanks to the software.
Yes, I've heard of the cat fight involved between the two company's, not sure it's slowing down the development team's product development though, if anything it's been spurring them on to greater levels of innovation.
Foxx, Neo and myself, we've been a team together, going on 5 years. If we can be of any service, please don't hesitate to ask, everything we've been working on up until now, has been for free.
You can contact both directly from the site, just tell them GroundRod sent you or PM me here for direct contact details.
For my part, know very little about it, only on the audio backup, editor and sometimes interviewer tasks team. Haven't worked with forum code since closing down my 10 node CPM-86 based PCBoard/FidoNet machines back in '96.
It's only been since March that BitCoin's came to our attention in a major a way, now we're doing everything we can to bring the first 1K people into the BitCoin world, some kicking and screaming all the way....
