We at NodeBB want to encourage others to take advantage of the fact that it's open source. We offer premium services for brand name corporate clients, and I'll be the first to admit that our pricing may not be at the right point for smaller companies...
All that said, we know you've created multiple accounts to disguise the fact that you were as recently as a few days ago asking for help setting up NodeBB.
If you had just used the same account, it would be acceptable: there's no rules against that!
I'm sorry but it just sounds dishonest and it's within our rights to point it out to would-be purchasers of your service.
@Joykiller Not sure if you're around anymore but I thought I'd respond anyway.
The problem with maintaining a plugin and theme directory is the maintenance aspect. We simply don't have the time to make sure everything is compatible, especially since every plugin created is a community contribution.
So we automate. We rely on plugin developers to report plugin compatibility, and serve only those plugins that are marked compatible. There is one downside, however, and that is plugins will quickly disappear in successive revisions of NodeBB unless the authors keep them up to date.
So there's definitely space for crowdsourcing as well. If a plugin is not marked compatible by the developer directly, multiple reports of compatibility by the plugin users should also count, and if enough votes come in, then the plugin should automatically be reintroduced.
that part isn't in yet, but it's on the wish list.
