This is an email I received directly from David in response to a message that I posted on his blog:

Hi .... We’ll be announcing our road-map on the blog and
directly to users who have items uploaded on the site, next Monday. 
Basically we will be giving all users the option to pay and not see any
advertisements or not pay and see advertisements.  There’s more to this
scenario, but this is the basic concept.  Essentially if you don’t want
to pay you will experience the site as you have been experiencing it
with no change.

There’s more detail that you’ll see on Monday, but by giving all users
these options they can decide for themselves how they want to experience
the site.

Cheers,

David

This is good, but not unexpected, news. I also noticed that the Donation to freebie providers option is back up today. = )

Yeah…but it’s not like I ever missed it…I’d probably fall over if someone ever actually used mine.

I got an unexpected bonus when the program was previously shut down (due to abuse apparently). It wasn’t a great amount, but I truly appreciated that someone took the time to acknowledge my efforts. I was truly not expecting anything—after all, I posted them as freebies—but it really felt good to get it.

Yeah, mine was about $7.  Quite a surprise.

I never noticed the “Would you like to receive donations through PayPal?” (why yes I would,thank you!)  check box in the account info section, but thanks to to the above statement I just did!

But it doesn’t work!.... All I get is “This email already in used by another user.” when I click “submit”....


Nothing EVER works ANYWHERE…


sigh.

Maybe you already clicked it in the past and forgot about it?  PayPal uses your email address of your account as an account number.  If someone else used your email address, it wouldn’t help them, you’d get their money.  That is, if you have a personal account at PayPal in the first place.

True about the password manager (the ones that do usernames), it would save a ton of nuisance (along with a password generator).

If I find free ones, I’ll set ‘em up. .

To tell the truth, I haven’t tried this one yet, so I have no idea if it has a generator, but I suggest you check this out:
http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/keepass_portable

Completely OT: I urge everyone to check out this site if you haven’t yet. Portable Apps has a great collection of 100% free programs for just about anything on Earth you may need, and the “PortableApps suite” is a handy interface to keep them organised and updated. Including Blender Portable, Inkscape Portable, etc etc. Great for those who have to jump between computers a lot!

Hey, thanks! I’ll check that out.


Man, I just got back in. Had to do the cache and cookies thing, in Firefox.

If I hadn’t got a topic reply email, I wouldn’t have tried IE…

Pays to go multibrowser…

Nope, I never did… it seems to be hanging on my email… That is not the first time I have had this happen… don’t know if was SCG or another site and I don’t know if/how it was resolved.

Id really like to see them charge for accounts.

I have had to visit ShareCG in the past because some thieves were posting Meshbox models there. Dave was good about pulling them, and the community was cool about it too. It is hard to use a credit card and maintain the anonymity needed for piracy.

Charging freebie makers to post their freebies… I don’t think so.

Charging people will NOT stop piracy. It’s called piracy because they’re stealing, money has nothing to do with it, if people want to rip off or illegally distribute or even sell, putting a price on the item will NOT deter them, in some cases it actually makes them MORE determined.

I would be selling my items if the website charged me to post it.

I just took look and saw you KNOW who rates your uploads and how many stars!
I embarrasingly accidently touched the one star on my android on someone’s model a few weeks ago while browsing so now they will think I downrated them red face

Yeah, I never like the way that thing works… it happened to me twice in the beginning… I left the artist a message apologizing. People have also done it to me too and left me a note about it… no biggie, I think the thing it too sensitive.
