I see they jumped to $40 every 6 months now, instead of the $25 per 6 months. I never had to use support, very seldom went to the support forums, as you can tell since I didn't know about the price increase.
They are going to price themselves out of business. You can get a blog that does most everything that IPS does now with Pages etc. They've gone insane, apparently. I'm going to have to think about it. I already stopped using many mods a long time back. I refuse to pay a set price, and then a renewal every 6 months for a mod, or Theme. It's been a 13-year run as of last month, I may wind up pulling my plug, and concentrating on my Blog. I'll have to wait and see what my members feel like.
myBB is free software, not to many used for arcades like we use. Mostly scripts installed: Arcade Webmasters Forum | TalkArcades - Arcade Showroom (thearcadenetwork.com)
phpBB is a much better setup and much easier to install the mod.'s
Already seen that, going to cancel some applications in my licenses I don't need anymore too.
But what do you need to run this arcade? Basically just Core and Pages, which will be USD 45,- a year to create an amazing website.
Did you know that you can even emulate a forum with pages? Or bundle it with a free forum and viola
First off I would like to apologize to davejo90 for accusing him of cheating and to Legion for not bringing it up with staff.
It has been a while since I have been on these forums and I told myself that I would be a much nicer person if I came back here. And I thought I was doing good until today. Back when I had my own arcade people got plenty pissed at me for being a jerk. SO, that is why I was banned from a lot of the other arcade sites. I mainly come here to pass the time and play some games, not piss people off. So again, sorry to davejo90.
The funny thing is that I was just looking up the lyrics to the Green Day song "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and the analysis of them. That song is me in-a-nutshell.
You always were an a--hole RK , but I won the shirt ! bet old Jack Daniels got me banned from at least double the amount you were banned from lol
Its a wake up call when you look back over the years and some of the things I have said ( even in jest ) but it has come out wrong .
My song would be R Marks " Hazard " ( but Only this bit of it )
I think about my life gone by
And how it's done me wrong
There's no escape for me this time
All of my rescues are gone, long gone ( or so I thought )
Now my rescue has come in the form of the great members of this site and the Admin of other sites that use this as a discussion and meeting point
Even joined most on the Affiliate scroll and have had a warm welcome from each and every one of them
I am hanging on right now by the skin of my ass. I go in the hole every month, between IPS, the Modder's, and the VPS server. With the new increase, I just can't afford this any longer. My Renewal is due 02/04/2022 total $205.00 this is USD funds so add another 35 percentage on for exchange.
I think the way things are going, this will be it for me..
I also have a SMF Arcade forum, but this arcade is not built for competitions, no settings to set up game plays.
