Information Important changes for downloading...
EDITED ON March 1st, 2015 :

Hello everyone,

i have to tell you that i was forced to modify the way to download our plugins, themes and MyCodes to alleviate recent abusive downloads and tentatives of hacking for getting our plugins for redistributing them for free...

We have been also victim of a DDoS attack that was mitigated yesterday in less than an hour, but i decided to close the forum for the night and have installed my new limitations in our download plugin here today...

*** So from now on, it would be permited to only download 3 items per day. ***

This limitation should not be too restrictive for 98% of our members.

If you have any questions you can contact me and i will be happy to answer them.

Mostly between 16:00 and 17:00 EasternTime, it was mitigated afterward...

I was thinking about becoming a subscriber here, But now i see i cannot download everything the same day, I decided not to bother, And to go with a different site. I am sorry but i will not become a subscribers if subscribers cannot download freely. Subscribers PAY to use your service, The least that can be done is give them something back for subscribers money.

@groovybluedog:

As i already explained to you in response to the PM you sent me :

"Subscribers have access to all plugins including Premium plugins, while other members have access to only a small portion of regular plugins."

Also the regular members have to do quality postings to accumate sufficient "peses" to download each regular plugins individually, while subscribers do not have to post anything.

If this is not enough for 5$ and you want instant delivery of 170 plugins for this amount, i honestly consider this to be quite abusive and would prefer that you keep your 5$.

I hope that you will be more happy on another site!

Wink

RE: Important changes for downloading...
why dont you have a private ftp server for all these plugins with a username and password, not hosted on this server, but only you and the premium members know about?

Simply because this would change nothing to the fact that only by paying 5$ anyone could get all our 170 plugins almost instantly and redistribute them afterward... Wink

The previous owner was using a third party downloading site paying a small amout for all downloads. I did not liked the process of having to redirect the members to another website and forcing them to see advertisements and getting a slow download at the end...
