Free Gold upgrade for developers

Developers with more than a couple scripts have had their account upgraded to Gold. It's not that big of deal but it's the right thing to do.

Going for the Gold

I've enabled Gold Accounts for those of us who have some extra cash and wouldn't mind paying a little bit for some added convenience. I'm asking for $10.00 a year, which is $0.83 a month, not outrageous but let me know if it's too much.

The money from Gold members goes towards maintaining and improving the website. If, by some miracle, lots of people upgrade their accounts I plan on sharing some of the extra cash with developers. That being said, if you only have a few dollars to spare, I'd much rather people considering upgrading donate to a developer instead.

Scripts for Sale

Developers now have the option of charging for their Scripts or Plugins. Developers can get more information here.

What's this mean for users? I don't suspect we'll see a lot of scripts for sale but I personally will be testing the waters with a new Script Manager script. I plan on charging $0.99 cents for the script, we'll see how it goes.

You got your Plugins in my Scripts!

Even before I started writing one line of code for playonscripts.com I tried to keep in mind that one day I'd like to use the same software to host plugins. I must admit that I hoped to join forces with Onyx over at playonplugins.com and work out some revenue share type of deal but it never came to fruition.

Today I started to think about the differences of Scripts versus Plugins and to be honest, now that the scripts plugins in default, the only real contrast is where we save them on our hard drives. So I began the process of allowing plugin developers the ability to add their plugins with our scripts. The site will be smart enough to know the difference and react accordingly.

I don't know if the plugin developers will use the new additions but I'll do my best to get the word out.

Site Design

I'm trying to 'soften' the design of the site, so don't be surprised if you notice some changes.

Landing Page and Subscription troubles

I found some bugs in the subscription process that has been ironed out, it was something really simple and I can't believe I overlooked it.

Also in order to inform people about the subscriptions; from now on when we click the "Download" links on a script's page we'll get redirected to a landing page with some additional information. It'll also come in handy if I ever need to let the user know about something in the future.

And one last thing you may notice is that on the home page there is a little News section now which should also help to get the word out about new features.

Subscriptions

It seems that I forgot to turn on subscriptions for everyone. It's been complete for months but I had it locked for not admins so I could test it and just forgot. Well it's open for everyone now, enjoy!
