Godaddy listened to the demands of their users, and now know that their business can (and has) face significant losses by supporting things like SOPA. Godaddy themselves were probably facing pressure from from content owners that do business with them.
Coupled with the fact that I'm going broke and can't afford to walk away from 2 years of e-mail service I already paid for, I will not apologies or feel guilty for my decision.
Also, my congressman was shot in the head five minutes away from where I live and is still recovering. I haven't had a chance to ask her what she feels about SOPA yet.

It will be either fragment things for users or lose support for certain add-ons. I for one rather not lose support some of the add-ons.
Also, "XBMC's Piracy Stance" is being based with US laws in mind and people that are using these add-ons from other countries, legally and without any gray area, will be losing support from this forum. The new site will give these people a place to continue to have that support.

I think, for what it is worth this is a pretty damn good idea, but I would make one suggestiosn, with Ice Library for example and possibly other addons in the future you may want to create setup PDF's or videios you can link to as opposed to just staring lines of text to guide the installation. Again, just a thought.

Why you made for instance a skin category? No skin topic here on xbmcforum is affected by this. Right? If so , than I don't feel than this should be a category on XBMC HUB. So that users and devs don't have to question which forums for to follow for an addon. Same counts for the Weather Add-On category and perhaps the Social Add-Ons category.

Aside from support...
Would it be possible for XBMCHub to clone the official XBMC repository and intermix their own sources as well, so that we are not doomed to looking at 2 separate repos for everything?
Without even using any of these programs in question, I totally hate having to go to 2 different sources for the same type of content... This is exactly the type of thing that I use XBMC to avoid.

What I do not want is fragmentation. As these devs transition to xbmchub.info, I want them, and the users to have a full functioning invoice of xbmc extras instead of going here to see these 6, and there for 2 more, and back again.
The skins will be intended for users to see there availability and have access to downloads, all within one site. All support needswill have links to their XBMC thread.

I for one would not want support for my addons to be there, purely cos I dont want to be maintaining two separate threads.

Maybe it's just me, but when I first saw the name of the new site, I couldn't help but read XBM Chub.

What you could do is make a list of locked add-on threads that refer to the XBMC forum. So when users come to your site they will be redirected to here.
I already see that some add-ons are listed on the openelec forum so that will make three threads.

sure, but there will be no XBMC Forum -> "hub" referals
