    I'm sure this is way out of your scope but we'd possibly be interested in paying for the development. Essentially, we run a network of forums in a particular niche and we'd like users to upgrade to a premium on any one site and have it be reflected on all sites. I assume users would be identified by email since account IDs are all different across the sites. Also, the database might be on a separate machine as the forums but my SA can handle all that.

    If you aren't interested then I have a developer who could probably implement this, assuming we have all the information necessary to pull it off.

    We'd pay for the lifetime licenses on 4 sites initially but eventually up to 12 if it all goes well.

    Unfortunately with my current schedule, I am unavailable for custom development. However what you say isn't difficult to implement. What you would need is a cron task on the main forum where a premium upgrade happens. This cron task would then connect to the other forums, find the corresponding user and upgrade / downgrade the account as required. You could have such a cron run after say every 5 mins or 10 mins, so that all accounts sync within that time.

    I welcome any further questions you may have or any install / configuration assistance you may need.

    Regards
