    We are hosting an IndieGogo campaign to raise at least $300 for us to upgrade the site to XenForo. Here we will be able to turn this into an average community forum to the Addon website we want it to be. Currently we're unable to upload free addons with ease, as well as download them, the files are messed up, and can leave openings for wrong doing, ect. With the upgrade we will be able to provide a simple, easy, yet efficient addon system that will leave you in awe.

    I'm currently without a job, and cannot do this without the help of the fellow facerig community! By donating, even as low as $1 we will be able to get the forum up, and upgraded into the facerig addon service that you all deserve! Click the above link to see what tiers you can donate too, what awards you can get for donating, ect.! Help us make the addon service you deserve, and complete our goal to being the number one FaceRig addon site for years to come!

    Small question- is there ability to redirect to adfly in XenoFor? Also, are you sure the transfer will be ok? Single .blend file can take 12mb, without hair, rig and texture.

    The download link you can have either via direct FRUS download, or through an outsourced website. In this case Adfly. So yes, it will be available. Also, the download files are no problem. I do not see 12mb-50mb files becoming a problem until we have several hundred addons that take that much each. At that time we'd have enough traffic to be able to either ask for more donations for a better hosting plan that allows infinite files (Assuming we raise the bear minimum for this campaign) or simply ad advertisements to help us get enough to pay for better hosting plans. This, I don't see being a problem for at least a year or two.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to help out until after all my bills are played and I know I can afford to drop a couple dollars on something noncritical. Depending on how things go that will either be in one or three weeks from now.

    Helped a bit ^.^

    I wouldnt mind choosing for exmaple a list of one click hosters that are allowed to use such as uploaded.net or something, that shouldnt become too big of a problem trafficwise then and adfly is a pain but a good way to get some ad revenue as well for the upkeep

    Traffic costs isnt omething that should be taken lightly >_<

    Aaaanyway, cheers to everyone helping out as well ^.^

    When we switch over to the new host we will put some links of some hosting we find is the best suitable, as well as have the community share their favorite hosting. This will help us out as we then don't have to worry about our file size getting overloaded :)

    I'm not a fan of adfly myself, but I will never stop you from making some sort of money for your hard earned work. If you are willing to give us some of your products for free then you deserve to use some sort of method to make some money.

    Thank you so much for helping, I'm outstanding on how this is going so far. I could have never guessed we'd be this close already to our goal. This just proves how amazing the facerig community is, and how much more you all need than this mybb site. I look forward to opening up our doors if we raise enough within the next two weeks, and I hope I can bring you the best addon/download site as well as fan community that you all DESERVE!

    I'm not a creator, but still plan on heavily using facerig and such its only natural to support a community in which i plan to benefit from its benefits 8D

    We're about %20-30 our initial goal! I can only hope we'll be able to get at least $350 by the end. That's the bear minimum we need in order to make this thing work <3 Thank you all for helping out! If you know any other facerig fans that might be interested in supporting this cause, please let them know as well ;)

    I managed to throw a few dollars at the campaign. Money's a bit tight at the moment, but I really would like to see this place take off and being ready by the time FaceRIG goes live is kind of critical to that goal.

    Every little bit counts. We're still 11 days away and have almost half of what we truly need in order to get the bare minimum up ($350). So, we're hopefully, more than likely going to have this up and funded by the end.

    Down to four days and not a single donation since Valentine's Day. I'm both surprised and disappointed. With options to donate as low as $1 (or $5 with a perk) and over eighty registered users (all of whom I presume intend to download a custom avatar from the site at some point), I'm at a loss as to why only five people have done so (myself donating the least of the five).

    For FaceRig to be truly successful, a viable online community is needed. The whole structure of their platform was designed to allow users to create and utilize their own avatars. To date, this is the only community site endorsed by FaceRig in any way and I'd hate to see their crowdfunding campaign fail.

    The campaign closes Feb 26 at 11:59pm PST. Don't read this and later say you wish you had donated; do so now while you have the chance. What else are you planning with that $1 to $5 sitting in your PayPal account?

    Yeah, kinda sad as well, but I also see a point in people being vary of a hub for a program that isnt even released yet and with no real idea what can be done and what not. I'm hoping there will be at least the 200$ mark for the licence! Sadly i'm in no situation to upgrade my perk! I'll see if I can shovel something together but no promises :/

    Now you've got the gears in my bird brain turning. I have a few friends who might know of some (less expensive or cost free) alternatives that'd get the job done. I'll try to pick their collective brains on the subject.

    It's the final countdown! And it's all up to you amazing people to make this goal possible in the upcoming weeks! If we can get around $150 more, this will be up and running within the next few weeks! Thank you all who have donated to us thus far, and we appreciate everything you all have done so far!

    I donated some. I've been busy with various things IRL and haven't been around lately, but just got an email about the campaign, so donated what I could.

    Thank you all for helping out, I appreciate it all! Though we've not reached the goal, I'm hard at work trying to get the rest of the funds to upgrade the site here within the next few! :D
