Hello All,

We are looking for extra members to join our dream-team.
What is the purpose of this think-team?
We love oxwall and dont want to see it go down like this.
So we were busy to update oxwall to the latest software and standards.
And then we realize that we also start  a fork of oxwall like others and not just first create a team to work together.To make this work we really have to work together.

So we have paused the project because we do not want to make the same mistake as other forks and want to create first a dream-team.

This group of people will think together how to get oxwall to the next level.
Discuss about features, roadmap, features, etc,


We are looking for:

- Developers

- Plugin owners

- People with great ideas about the next generation oxwall

- Communication experts

- Support experts


For your information:

We really want to keep oxwall opensource so its NOT gonna be a paid product

So you need to invest time and effort for the team.

If you do not match above list but think you can help, then don't hesitate to contact us.

Just send a pm to get more info.



Do you also want to keep oxwall alive? then join!!

I was answering your question one by one but maybe i can tell you in once
I had some websites build on oxwall. And in that time i also had websites running on wordpress.
All this work was next to my regular job by my boss too much work.
To not get a burn out i told myself to focus on 1 product:
So i did not focus on oxwall and started to create plugins for wordpress:
https://profiles.wordpress.org/dreamfox

For a social website i dont want to use wordpress so i will using oxwall again after a try with: fox, Social engine, community builder i noticed that oxwall is the flexible software. Then i notice that a long time nothing has done and i think that is sad. oxwall is a great product.
I see the forks where 1 is asking first for money and the other is changing it that much that i wonder if that is what the oxwall community wants.
So thats kinda my story.

What i want is find some people that are willing to help develop oxwall further.
We can also work on current oxwall but i see there is no commitment from original oxwall team so to move forward we have to create a new team and also a new name. With this team i first want to discuss how we gonna do that and not just start. First make a good plan. Personally i think we have to listen to oxwall community and let oxwall users tell what is needed to do. so listen to the community. And then release every month a new version what users can first test and that not muich things are in a release so you can pinpoint if any problem with custom work or plugin you can narrow it down.
I also want to be oxwall for free. I think that the team can earn some money by premium support, premium plugin, or whatever the team think is best.
In the case you will earn money. This will be i think 50% will get invested back in oxwall and the other 50% will go to team.
By wordpress my developers earns for every premium plugin sale for example.
I'm a trustworthy person you can see:  https://www.freelancer.com/u/dreamfox#/reviews
I can develop and are willing to do that, but my biggest strengt is also customer support, etc


Thats my vision  Like I said I’m not in it for the commercial part. It must be free available but as we grow we need also a strategy to make it possible to

Pay for hosting, support suite, develop tools. I will now just pay them because I believe in the software.

If any questions just let me know

What we unfortunately still do not understand is that other versions (improved) of Oxwall are being started and released with perhaps the approach to earn something.
While you are referred back to the Oxwall store for the plugins.
The base of Oxwall is still good, why not improve it?
Why not always address the company Skalfa (we have already done that a few times and our questions were also answered) and work with their team to make this free version of Oxwall better.
Your developers may be able to make this software even better with their team!
Anyway, the basis is good in itself even though it needs an update!


This is our opinion.

For me, they do not commit fast enough to their github branch.

I understand your point but 50% or more of the plugins in the store are not updated or abanded. I want with the team create a new store that make sure of quality plugins and still users can also make use of the old plugin store with license.


We can not deliver quality if we need to stick to old store.

We can understand your intentions very well, and it will all be top quality.
However, until now nothing is really working properly.
Plus, besides that we install and maintain the software from Oxwall via Installatron (though maintaining is apparently no longer possible because Oxwall probably does not communicate this with Installatron anymore or how that works).
So, at this moment we have still heard a lot but have not seen anything concrete yet.
Oxwall is apparently still working, because an update on Contact Importer is put in the store today.
