Hi everyone,

As you know Xiaomi is now almost 8 years old, and so is this forum! We've been operating largely on our own financial resources for the last few years and initially had some help from other forum members to get Xenforo upgrades for the forum back in 2012.

Since that time the forum has grown a lot and now we need to look at all future upgrades and incoming GDPR rules for EU.

With this in mind the forum needs to be upgraded urgently but we are lacking the available funds to pay for the $190 license. I already pay a large cost monthly for servers, firewall hardware and network gear to keep us online and performance tolerant.

I am asking our community to lend a hand to help us reach the goal of $190 to get Xenforo 2.x and Enhanced Search as well.

You can donate to via PayPal here: https://www.paypal.me/xiaomieurope

Everyone who donates will get a mention in this post! Thanks for your support over the last 8 years!

Donated, too. Would be nice to hear the current status...
Upgrade will be done soon, there is an issue moving the license over from one of the old admins to my account which we are sorting out this week :)

Can you share the name of the donators as said in the first post?
Actually due to GDPR laws I can't now do that :) however if the people who donated wish to leave a comment I can compile it that way : )
