I have to put my Oar in here.
First off - they have a person that looks after the website - he is paid to Market and do the website.
I don't see much of either.
Goto xojo.com and b4x.com these sites are how it should be done.
B4x has now gone opensource for EVERYTHING except IOS
I don't know how many programmers are in the company but the main programmer/owner of B4X , Erel is on the forums daily actually submitting code - especially for education - which again runs on windows, Mac Linux and android all free to everyone - I have bought licences in the past - at least to support them and play around including the enterprise version with Mac and IOS compilation on windows in the cloud included.
Here is the teaching page written by the lead developer/owner
The forum software they use is much better for what it is used for (code and links at the top)
The platforms deployed to are more than Livecode's and all supported fully, and the examples are many and varied.
Onto our Nemesis XOJO (mwah Hahaha Dun dun Dah! ) - another one I have bought licenses for that when I couldn't get a telephone voice application I was writing to work reliably with Livecode. It was coded and working in XOJO in a day and called it via shell and clipboard commands ). Their documentation, videos, YouTube channel etc are brilliant - they as B4X have staff than livecode but their doc and teaching person Paul Levebre is a one many marketing/website/evangelist typhoon - and he runs his own company on top.
They are soon coming out with their Android addition VERY soon!

Please Livecode - Kevin - wake up and smell the coffee. I want you to succeed but in my not so humble opinion you seem to be letting your bread and butter Windows/Mac and probably Linux applications fall by the wayside as you add stuff for Filemaker.
I still have 4 computers (all running windows 10) where the IDE 95% of the time can slow to a crawl - 3 seconds per character typed to catch-up.
FIX the bugs and stop adding stuff.
And ichard the reason for eating your own dog food (thats the cleaner way of putting it) is so that you can see what is missing, what doesn't work quite right.
If They had a developer on staff who actually developed for external companies and maybe did a JV so some of the money came to LC they would not be wholly dependent on licences.
Servoy Does it and many other companies.
Microsoft has a team that rights software for outside companies for Microsoft Dynamics (an abomination if there ever was one)
Some of my comments maybe harsh - but it is because I am so frustrated at the way a brilliant product is not getting the polish and bug fixes it deserves. The absolute madness of still not putting a separate license for IOS for Iphone development (yes I know there is community plus) but there are many programmers I know who will not biy a license that runs out after a year - just don't do it. People will upgrade when the extras are deemed worth it. When it comes to IOS - it's everytime Apple decides to change libraries or updates xcode or the OS so there will be a steady flow of income if someone has submitted to the store.
Look at XOJO's pricing.
Better yest look at B4X
We have lost hermann because he was not being listened to - he was doing what Kevin and steve crighton should be doing - 2000 Widgest (christmas 5 years ago)
What about 3 or 4 years ago the Sqlite stuff with documentastion - the 2d graphics which was in test mode 2 years ago.
I will stop now cos I'm getting angry rather than frustrated - Livecode could have been the best of Delphi and Foxpro combined
I hope the Filemaker stuff is going well because we are going to have another one of these crowdfunding events again in the next 6 months to a year - I hope not because then I will have been right in my prophecy.
This is out of frustration rather than wanting to cause any offence but fact that they have a person who supposedly looks after the website and we are asking would we fund one is a real joke - what the hell am I missing?
** sorry for the inevitable grammar and smelling pistakes - I have work to do.
