    Xenon Board

    Can you give me some more information on this board, like what features will set it apart, paid or free, stuff like that?

    That's a bad thing to have, hopefully he can fix it before more people see it.

    And there isn't a lot of feature descriptions added into that.

    Of course you have never heard it, when you search Futurion Power Board you only get one proper result of his website.

    Yea, it's a new site, hardly developed at all, it is a long way off from being ready I think.

    Once into the first RC, you will need to advertise anywhere, marketing using google adwords, anything to get your site across!

    Yea, I would advise Nick to make it a free software until the name gets known. Do NOT do what IPS did and advertise that you will always be free, just say you are a free software, but do not imply or say that you will always be free. Once you get your name out there, then set it to a paid software. Do something of that nature, so that people do not have to pay for a software they've never even heard of before.

    It is actually not called Futurion Power Board, it is simply called Xenon Board.

    But AU and Futurion will be partners in the near future, so we will all be aware of how Xenon will work. :)

    This product looks promising.

    However -- I cannot get over the fact that it constantly reminds me of Invision Power. The name still uses the phrase 'power' in it, the board's name is FP.Xenon; similar to IP.Board, and you offer a board, blog, and gallery; exactly what Invision Power does. I am not doubting that this is will be a good product, but the naming scheme and such might need to be rebranded. My 2 cents though.

    Looks nice. I would use it once it comes out. But it seems like an exact copy of IPS.

    Incorrect. We are not a copy of IPS. FP.Xenon is the incorrect term.

    We are now as FP.Xenon Board, FP.Xenon Blog, FP.Xenon Gallery. The software will be free, however that will probably change once it's "out there".

    Lets just confirm some stuff here:

    Invision Power Services
    Futurion Power Systems

    Im seeing some differences there. Plus, the software is in no way a copy of IPS.
    We've got Alpha 2.0 out, so if you want to test, see here: http://futurionpower.com/corporate/news/articles/inc/fp00001.htm

    :D

    I'm not saying you're copying them, I'm just saying your schemes and such do coincide with IPS.
