[closed] donation request (9 posts)

  1. I'm really tired of the in-your-face donation request on the dashboard. On the plugin option page, sure, but not on the dashboard. Unfortunately, I will be deleting all of your plugins now, because the "hard sell" is not very respectful of the user. Either sell your plugin, or ask for a donation on the plguin option page, but not on the dashboard. I have not come across any other plugin that does that, and I'm glad that no-one else does!

  2. Oh, and I know that it can be removed by editing the plugin and commenting out these 2 lines:

    // Please think about a donation
    If (Is_File(DirName(__FILE__).'/donate.php')) Include DirName(__FILE__).'/donate.php';

    change to

    // Please think about a donation
    // If (Is_File(DirName(__FILE__).'/donate.php')) Include DirName(__FILE__).'/donate.php';

    ut it's still not cool to have to do that every time the plugin is updated.

    This is violation of open source idea and it becomes more and more annoying. Now you came up with the idea to place big red capital donation requests in dashboard menu as well as footer which are screaming obviously "GIVE ME THE MONEY!" As if huge box in the dashboard area would not be enough.

    I would donate as I do with other plugins if I have some money. But what you are doing definitely will prevent me from donating anything only because you demand this. And BTW this is not a donation any more its a payment for removal of annoying disadvantage of 'demo' version.

    I use to like your plugin but is not worth the bugging I receive from you. So switched to Lightbox 3.

    I think you are missing the idea of WordPress dude in rather shameless way.

    Good luck with money mining.

    Hi Guys, I know you have never had a job and so of course you have no money. That's okay, you are losers, and everyone accepts this. But please stop spaming the forums. Use other plugins and nag other coders, thank you for deactivating my plugin and thank you for shut the fuck up. :)

    Btw: mintfactory had never donate to any plugin author. He's one of the usual cadgers. -.-
