Gold Members now can get some recommendations based on their own subscriptions. I wouldn't compare the results to, say, the NetFlix Recommendation Engine, but it should help expose us to some scripts and plugins we may not have known existed.

It's a pretty simple "algorithm" (for the lack of a better term) that compares your subscriptions to other people who also subscribed to the same scripts and plugins. From there it compares those users' scripts and plugins to each other and, based on a percentage, returns any of them that are ranked highly.

I decided to limit this to Gold Members because it's rather database intensive.

Website issues

Not sure if anyone else is experiencing these issues but I'm having trouble accessing the website at the moment.

Going to see if I can contact some folks.

Database Errors

Today I came home to find out that a database error was injecting itself into download scripts and plugins, it was my error. When I began converting the site to allow plugins and scripts, without separating the two, I had to go through the code and remove the redundant code. Today I found a bit of code I didn't clean up and removed it. Turns out it was kind of essential.

My apologies to everyone but all is well.

Script Manager Numbers

Less than a month ago I re-released the Script Manager script under the new title Manage Scripts. It's the first script on the site to be available for a fee, I did this for a couple reasons. The first reason is to just test the waters, it only costs $1.29 (and not $.99 because google takes a flat $.30 per transaction), I've always been curious if people would pay for PlayOn Plugins/Scripts. The second is to give something extra to Gold Members, and it was originally only going to available to as a part of the upgrade. The total sales, added up, isn't amazing but about 30 people have decided it was worth it so far.

And, thanks to crawl9992, we have our first non script on the site, he added the TNT Plugin yesterday.
