I strongly suggest that you read the post that was linked by SubsistCyber which will explain why there is a cost associated with using some content on D&D Beyond.

Is there any way I can change the description without having to resubmit?Nope - please ensure you proof read and test your homebrew prior to submitting.Every homebrew submission is manually checked by a moderator and it can take quite a lot of time to check all submissions.
Secondly, the race has a trait known as Exoskeleton: "When you aren't wearing armor, your AC equals 13 + your Dexterity modifier." How do I translate this into DNDBeyond's modifiers so that it calculates properly?Modifier type: SetModifier subtype: Unarmored Armor ClassFixed Value: 3

The really easy answer to this is - there is more than enough development available to keep the team busy for years, developing top tier digital tools for 5th edition - the current version of the game.
Who knows what the future brings though. Maybe if the dev team feel that the site is complete and there are no more value/tools that can be added, they might create a site for 3e/3.5e
I consider it unlikely though and likely a very poor business decision to develop a website to support a game system that is no longer supported by the company who created it.

The mobile app is currently in alpha test, so there's only so much I can tell you, as the rest of the functionality is being worked on.
The compendiums and adventures can currently be downloaded and perused offline - this will stay the same, likely with improvements even.
Character will be added, but we'll have to wait and see how that works out - I know that the intention is that the character sheets can be viewed/used offline.

After the subscription ceases, the first time you access your character screen, you will get the option to choose which 6 characters to keep unlocked.
Please be warned that currently if you exit from that screen without choosing 6 characters, then all of your characters will be locked.

There's no option for this - the current magic item homebrew system calls for the selection of a BASE WEAPON, which then has additional properties added on top of that - it mostly doesn't provide scope for altering the properties of the base weapon.
The only existing item that does something similar is Dwarven Thrower which just notes the range in the text as far as I can see.

What he was referring to is the next time WotC publishes content containing those classes.
That might be a full sourcebook, or it might be a UA article containing an updated version of the class - we don't know, but both of those will be added to D&D Beyond.

I can confirm for you that Wizards of the Coast does not own D&D Beyond - that's not how licensing works.
With regards your concern that WotC could "pull the plug" on the site at any time, I would say that you are doing Amazon's contract lawyers a massive disservice.
At any rate, the D&D Beyond team at Curse work closely with the D&D team at WotC, so I cannot see a world where any issues cannot be worked out.

From the rulebook:
Shields. A shield is made from wood or metal and is carried in one hand. Wielding a shield increases your Armor Class by 2. You can benefit from only one shield at a time.
To benefit from a shield, the character must be actively using it with one of their hands, which eliminates the possibility of using a two-handed weapon at the same time (unless the character has more than 2 arms I guess).
As VanZoeren notes, there isn't a separation of different types of shields in 5th edition.
The design seems to assume that a character will use whatever shield fits their fighting style, so it could be a quick fencing style with rapier and buckler or a heavy infantry style with a spear and large kit shield or Roman scutum - they all count as +2 AC for game balance reasons.

Los arquetipos adicionales están en el Player's Handbook que necesitas desbloquear del mercado.

Ah, nice! That's a fun bit of luck with the haggling and great that the party pitched in. :)
A word of caution about letting AC get too high though - the 5th edition game is built around normal boundaries for levels, so you may already be finding that many monsters have a hard time hitting the paladin.
