It’s been almost a year since our original platform was destroyed without trial. Despite having had our domains and social media accounts censored, we have managed to regain over 15 million active users and are en route to becoming bigger than ever!
Losing our search engine rankings and ability to communicate with our former userbase has decimated our already modest revenues. We are therefore fundraising to cover future expenses associated with our rebuilding efforts…
• New Servers: In terms of server capacity, we were forced to order new servers last year when we relaunched our platform. We ordered ones which we could afford at the time, with minimal capacity to say the least. Now we need more powerful, future proof ones.
• Site Upgrades: When it comes to our web site, we are definitely in need of a major overhaul. We need to bring our design into 2018 status, allowing developers to submit their repositories without human intervention. Our current format is more suitable for a news site.
• Development Fund: In order to stimulate new addon development from people outside of the Kodi community, we are thinking about creating a development fund. This way we could entice new people to get involved through a sort of bounty program.
• Legal Defense: Fighting billion dollar companies who disregard and manipulate the law to their advantage is not cheap. We have no choice though, if we don’t fight then no one will. We always followed the law, and need to pay lawyers so that we’ll have the chance to prove it in court.
As far as the new Kodi addons we’ve been promising go, we are gearing for release of at least one extremely powerful scraper addon soon. One of our developers is also working on a Trakt based framework for new Kodi addons with importable scrapers.
Thank you to those who have supported us through the good times and the rough. With your help, the near future will usher in a renaissance of our community.
