Support » Plugin: Under Construction » All the nag screens are annoying

  • The nag screens are constant. They are so intrusive that I deleted this plug-in for that reason.

    Any benefits of this plug-in are destroyed by the constant demand for ratings and/or ups-sell.

    Plenty of other “Under Construction” plug-ins without all the junk these people put on your screen.

    We don’t have any upsells nor any “nags” with any such content so I really don’t know what you’re referring to. Most probably a different plugin.

    @admin – this review is not related to our plugin or is just a blatant lie so please remove it. thank you

    @donhz Please provide a screenshot so we can sort this out.

    No. You built all the nag screens and notifications, so you what they are.

    This request from you is an example of nagging. If I would have wanted to contact you I would have done that. It’s just easier to delete your plug-in.

    Webfactory – It’s not right when you say, “We don’t have any upsells nor any “nags” with any such content…”

    I took the time to reinstall your plug-in because I think you are not being honest with the WP community. Your nag screens are about the worst I’ve ever seen. The nags are intrusive and clutter the WP back-end.

    @admin… Please ban people like this who misrepresent how their plug-ins work.

    Here are 3 TYPES of nag screens, some you can dismiss only temporarily.

    WEBFACTORY – This is not true… you are not being fair to the WP Community when you say…”We don’t have any upsells nor any “nags” with any such content…”

    @admin – Please remove plugins from the directory when author misrepresents the plug-in.

    Here are 3 types of nag screens you have, some of which can only be turned off temporarily. They are an intrusive nuisance, far worse than any plug-in I’ve ever used in the last 8 years.

    And which one of those is an upsell?

    @webfactory – None are upsell, but if you’re hitting people THREE TIMES in a short timespan, you are being pretty annoying.

    Just can’t stop nagging, eh, even with proof. Sad.

    The WP Community is not here to convince you that all your nag screens are annoying. Please just accept that. My heading says, “All the nag screens are annoying.” Believe it.

    Your giant pop-up with the new features looks like an up-sell to me, especially since you’re capturing emails through that device.

    Again, I think your nag screens are spammy. I think you are collecting email addresses to sell something later. I think you are not being ethical with the WP Community when you say your plug-in does not contain “…any “nags” with any such content.”.

    You asked for a rating and review and I gave a fair and honest one.

    I won’t be answering any more of your questions. The 3 types of nag screen images I posted above say it all.

    I’m glad you have a crystal ball that tells you we’re going to sell something. Hope you’ll use those powers for something else than being mad because something that’s free doesn’t 100% fit your ideas. That “giant pop-up” serves the community and the users of this plugin. It allows us to know what features we should add that people are actually going to use instead of bloating it. Decent people simply click “I’m not interested” and never see that again.

    And the tooltip that has you so deeply upset is something that a lot of people who are not WP experts deeply need because they don’t know where to find the plugin’s settings. But hey, screw them right? Because we made you click the “dismiss” button and that’s another “nag”.
