      So why don't we raise our current dev's salary, and sub for 100$ per month for the first 3 months and see how it goes.

      Abruptly ending service is no way to make people happy. Heck, why was downtime month counted in the 6 months of depreciated sales? Anyhow, pitchforks are already up.

      Best you could do is 3 months trial of a sub based model and see, clearly lifetime isn't so hot.

      ~~ that's lol ~~~~~, How can be closed litterelly the most interesting project among all the products of the team right now? ,:confused::confused: , in the game which is expanding now , with limitless borders for botting ?? Which has the endless leagues and races , with hardly few bans. Poe also has dozens of fellow diablo 3 donators who gamble with any orbs possible in the game to get insane gear, throwing 1000$ < , you need only to be ready to suply with your freshly farmed orbs . Holy cra~,
      Will we get Pushdex word on it? Is that really currency stash tab destroyed it all? or at least say farewell or what willbe your next project you will work on?

      The bot was updated, community devs already managed them and it was just matter of hours/days to make verything updated. AIF was supposed to be released today..

      We all know how to count and each of us has about 10 bots. 10*10 = 100$ from one user. 100 users can easily count exactly on the forum. 100*100 = 10000$ per month. And this is only a rough calculation! We dont need to take us for idiots! It's not about the money...:mad:

      Now Google the cost of a full time developer with a few years C++ and C# expertise, multiply it by 2 and you have dev salaries. Multiply that by 2 and you have the employer costs like taxes, admin and support. $10k per month doesn't begin to cover it.

      Trust me - I am truly an optimist and if there was a chance of making a profit, we would carry on eating the losses. But there is no chance and that is why we decided to close the bot.

      This is what happens when you offer no financial incentive to developers (not buddy* ones). WoW, while it has a much much higher playerbase, thrives with Honorbuddy because it has a healthy developer pool who can make money off selling scripts, profiles, plugins, etc. You guys obviously get a cut of that (quite a large one) that helps fund development of the core bot. For some reason, that never happened in PoE, and thus there was never a huge pool of people creating content for it. There's less than a half dozen active plugins, profiles, and routines combined. If people could buy a QuestBot for $15 and you take a $6 cut of that you've instantly paid for a month or more of a dedicated developer... and that's just off one plugin.

      I would like to hear if there is any possibility of activating exilebuddy again @Hawker. (without giving too much details). If there is none just say so, but dont let the community go furious about trying to get eb again.

      I suggest that we all write in support@thebuddyforum.com number of bots that everyone is willing to pay each month. Let will count and draw conclusions!!!

      Possible scenarios :

      1) GGG won the battle with $$$
      2) bot is sold to private botting structure

      Anyway, the less you can do is to give us some numbers to justify your call.

      Because really most of people dont trust you.

      Clogging the support e-mail wouldn't be an effective way to get their attention - it would likely just result in a bunch of ignored/deleted e-mails/tickets.

      Switch this bot like Buddywing to a monthly sub, win-win situation. But no, better create an internal meeting about what is cripping our money, no time to talk to the devs.

      You already bullshited communitydevs on buddystore by raising cut, it's time to pay for your sins. I'm a long-time user of your products, but this was the last assfuck I dare to take.
