Ohai guys, We are receiving a lot of queries regarding the Recognized Developer Program.
Long story short, it's suspended until further notice.

Prior to the RD onboarding system, applications were taken in a specific time frame and then analyzed over months.
Around 2015, a custom onboarding system was developed to streamline the onboarding process.

Sadly as with all other custom systems(DevDB), we had to retire the onboarding system with our move to Xenforo.

So what next?
We are in process of developing an alternative onboarding process. Once that is done, we will open the application in batches.

When will it be done?
There is no fixed timeline. So we will let you know once it's done.
