I was impressed by the new badge this morning, thank you! I was then even more impressed seeing my face in the MO sista corner, thanks! Again, I was proud to militate for the men’s health!
Congratulations Just for our curiosity, how many buyers from those 2000+ became registered users and how many deposits? Of course if you want to share the information
I look like a hunter LOL but I am proud of participating in changing the future of men’s health.
I’m sorry, but I agree with gregmc. You buy from here, support should be here.
For instance, I offer support for my items only via comments section or via emails from my profile page, especially since comments are searchable.
Why? It’s faster. When you want to ask the author something, you go to Downloads page, then to the item’s detail page then, it’s fast and easy to post a comment in there.
Also, when you wish to purchase an item, it’s more reliable and safer if you see in the comments section how many buyers had issues in the past and which type of issues…For me, this is an important part when I decide which item to buy, I always read what others say about the item before buying it (maybe this is in fact the reason why many authors do not want to offer support via comments -> to hide from the buyers the existing issues)
Once, I had about 15 customers in the same day asking for support in the comments / or from my profile page. I successfully managed all of them, without a support forum, so that’s not an issue.
We have to understand that having a support forum is convenient for authors, but not for the buyers.
Besides being an author plugin, I am also a buyer, I also bought items from codecanyon and themeforest. I never go to support forums. Why? Mainly because most of the times, I don’t remember the link to the support forums for each purchased item. Then, even if I have the link, I don’t remember the user-password combination. And when I have all these, I will have to get familiar with each support forum and I don’t have that time or patience. Really. Honestly.
why do you need to know everytime you have a sale, that would drive me nuts…
Personally I only need to know when one of my items has a new comment or when I receive a new rating (would be great to have comments on ratings, then, the comments would help me in the development, to add features or fix important bugs).
Bitcoin is currently on the rise and is gaining more and more attention. The current value of a bitcoin is $1,000. Wouldn’t it be neat if authors could get paid in bitcoins or that customers could deposit money with bitcoins? A lot of sites have adopted bitcoin payment and it’s currently working out great (including my own site). What do you guys think about that?
Honestly I am old fashion and I prefer the classic US $.
Bitcoin is popular now, but you don’t know if it will be too in 4 years. And it’s a digital coin, so I don’t trust it very much, it’s open to attacks, etc

You could implement or use a remote CVS or SVN server, it’s better than a local server backup. It’s the best way to work in teams – in a concurrent mode and also have a safe backup.
