  1. The Heff added a post in a topic: RC4 today?   

    I count 5 pages and not all are high priority either.
    I don't think we're in a bad place.  
  2. The Heff added a post in a topic: Petition for the return of members list   

    I don't see the members list as an important feature. Administrators can find members through the ACP and members can find other members through the search. The members list becomes somewhat pointless once your community grows to a certain size as navigating it is tedious.
  3. The Heff added a post in a topic: IPS4 Clean Install   

    ​I found this to be the case too.
  4. The Heff added a post in a topic: shoutbox for 4.0   

    I'm not sure I made myself clear. I don't mean to rush you. I wondered if it was possible to make any donations towards your work. (If it's a free mod again the least I could do is buy you a beer. )
    Looking forward to seeing Shoutbox!

    ​Pete, will you accept any donations towards your time? (You know, like a 'buy me a beer' link?)
  6. The Heff added a post in a topic: Community in the Cloud   

    ​I did exactly that.  
  7. The Heff added a post in a topic: RC2 is out...   

    ​Phew!
  8. The Heff added a post in a topic: RC2 is out...   

    ​That means you installed a beta on a live site, against IPS's advice?
  9. The Heff added a post in a topic: 4.0 has less options than 3.4.x?   

    ​I thought that had been resolved in a previous beta. 
  10. The Heff added a post in a topic: -=[ IPS4 Chill Pill ]=-   

    Installing and testing the beta is actually quite good fun. The problem seems to be that some people don't know what a beta is.

    ​It's all in jest.
    I want IPS to spend a much time as they need.
    I may still send cookies. (Really...)
  12. The Heff added a post in a topic: Safe to say there will be a beta 7?   

    ​No cookies for you! 
  13. The Heff added a post in a topic: Safe to say there will be a beta 7?   

    ​Do it and I shall send you cookies.
  14. The Heff added a post in a topic: Monthly Licenses   

    Users pirating software does not make a price reduction warranted, so that argument is flawed right away.
    I'm also not over-thinking it, I'm just thinking about it from a business perspective. It makes no sense to drop the price from $175 to $25. Once the user has the software hosted on their platform it would become a nightmare to manage users who don't 'renew'.
  15. The Heff added a post in a topic: Monthly Licenses   

    So we're asking a business to change from a model in which you pay $175 up front for the software and $25 every 6 months for support, to $25 a month? What happens if I only want the software and do not want to keep paying the renewal? It seems like IPS would stand to lose $150 per license straight up, without taking into considerations other addons as well.
    That pricing model makes no sense.
    Now if you had to pay to access upgrades then I think that pricing model works, but that would be a worse pricing model for us because in the long run it would be a lot more expensive.
    The only software I've seen the pricing model you're suggesting work for is cloud based software that can be deactivated when payments cease.
