THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Aussie Topenders!

Quote

Hello Members,
Zita and Cathy would like to thank you all for your support of this
site.

Members who have purchased donation sets have helped this site meet
its bandwidth costs time and time again.

As a result, we are happy to announce that pay files will no longer be
needed in order to keep this site going!

Of course, it may be necessary to put up donation sets in the future,
but this is likely to be a very rare occurrence Smile

And so, thank you all for your support through this difficult time.
Zita, Cathy, and all of us here at Aussie TopEnders, are very grateful
for the assistance and kindness you have all given.

regards,
Savannah (Moderator Aussie TopEnders Yahoo Group)


I thought this was pretty awesome. It was received (not by me, sorry) via e-mail and not posted on their site.

Well that's just great and they had a little class about it too, unlike some.

They have to be the first site that hasn't gone crazy over this whole thing; they actually can afford to not charge for items any more unlike the rest.

If only everyone was this kind...

Unfortunately I have seen Zita land into people from a great height on her front page. There was some guy in Europe who was sharing her files on and she went nuts about it. So even though it's good they're not charging, they still would go off their nut about what's happening here..

It is good though that they're not doing an exercise in rampant greed and just charging because they can.. I know of some of the older pay/donation sites that are like that. They just ended up charging because they got into messes because they had the wrong host who charged them through the nose.

We have the right host (about 5 bucks a month) and have never been charging for our files as long as we've been in operation..

I was just confused about this being important because I know that there are lots of good free sites out there too including ours, so I've never seen it as that much of a big deal.

Well, it might be coincidence and just happened at the 'right' time, but they did indeed announce it with some class, rather than acting like by going free, they were some sort of hyper-generous gods, giving the community more than we deserve...good on them! Smiley

Just because this happened now doesn't mean that they did it because of this site.

Field reports suggest it hasn't actually HAPPENED yet.

Nope, Paypal buttons are still up on the site, and no mention of it anywhere on the site, or their forums. We wait Tongue

i'm sure it will take a while for them to get everything organized in a non paysite structure..... take down the paypal stuff (if they do at all, they might leave that up so that people can still donate) and all that

I don't think sites should not have a paypal button.  I don't believe they should be pay or donation sites, but I don't see anything wrong with accepting donations if people want to send them to you.  I have donated to Liegenschonheit's site twice, and I plan to continue to do so in the future.

I don't see anything wrong with voluntary donations either.. It's up to the person whether they want to donate or not. It's when they're made to donate to get the file that it gets questionable.

I don't see how speculating about whether or not two people sharing a handle are the same person is any sort of confidentiality issue.

Bah, I'll piss a lot of people off saying this, but when has that every stopped me?

Most of the people on this board are a bunch of pussies who want one foot in the goody goody happy bunny care bear world and still want want to get the *ooh scary bad* free pay files.

'But oh, they will ban me at the happy bunnies board if they know I come here'

To which I say why would someone want to be a member of a board where they would ban you for things you said or did outside their board?

I don't know, maybe I just don't get it because I don't give a hot fuck what people think about me and am not trying to impress anyone or get anyone to like me.
