I’m a bit late in posting this to my personal UTAU blog, but UtaForum is currently in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to license new forum software (Xenforo) to power the fourth version of the site!

We actually reached our goal in the first day of fundraising, but we are currently working on stretch goals which will allow us to obtain some extremely useful plugins for the forum.

Rewards include a nifty forum badge for your profile for when the forum is upgraded, as well as voting tokens which will allow you to suggest and vote on which skins are developed for the new forum (beyond our Defoko standard theme).

So please, if you can, do help us out!

I am SO EXCITED to finally be able to share this with everyone!
