Topic: Donation Button for plugins
Hey guys,

i think it was an good idea to add a donation button on the Download Area for the plugin developers.

best regards DennYo

There is no download anymore on site..
All the downloads are done inside the software under Extensions, and probably most look there... (and should, its where you get add ons)

I guess on your profile page could always add a button perhaps ;-)

here was a good place for an Donation Link.

Indeed, slipbrake8; 80421 downloads, the most popular audiofx for several years - monetized value = Zero
It's no good having users having to go look for a link, only a tiny percent would even donate if the button was right in front of them, send them searching... and the beer fund remains empty.

VDJ is the most popular dj software on the planet, content creators [skins, pads, fx] [sample packs are a bit hazy, depends if it is original content] should get something, even if it's just pennies/100

Skins always get more downloads, part of what happens when it's first in a list. But I'm not arguing with you +90K has got to be worth a few beers.

I agree, a donation-button would be helpful imo. Why not?

Or bring back the monetization scheme [ or both ]

likewise with the new routine, I'm sure I was thinking on it while I was asleep on some nights

....so why are there still download buttons? It doesn't make sense to have download buttons that don't download.

It also doesn't make sense to remove posts pointing out this quirk.

Obviously since they been there for decade, so that people can see popup message easily on click, that they now should download in software ;-) Clicking where they usually do usually works better to make user aware, than some small text explaining same... action and reaction..
Dont worry, it will of course not be forever, transitional and this change was fairly recent ..

Thats all ;-)


(has zero to do with the topic here, that was made about donation button ... probably why a mod made it moderated, hijacking others post is usually seen as spam and unwanted. And moderators hold the rights to keep content clean, useful and organized as they see fit best.)
