Hello everyone, i will try to explain the new feature that we offer, why we decided to do it, and what might be the pros and cons of it. Lets start in the Year 2009, Gatherbuddy was born and came delivered with few profiles made by myself, Mining and Gathering profiles with names like Fel_Iron_4000, Cobalt_4000, Sholar_6000 and few more. Back in that time there where only few users, and just us the creators. User created content was nothing to think of, most people relied on what we had or started trying to make something similar or even better. Time passed by, the community grew... a lot, and the community varries now from bot beginners to actual professional coders, where it was just bot users in the beginning. Gatherbuddy was a tool that could do few things, Honorbuddy can do whatever you want it to do, with the open API you can do your own botbase, plugins that statisfy your needs, or just gimmicks. Now in 2014 there are probably tens if not hundreds of webpages where 3rd party additions are been advertised and or sold. You, as the user, have no overview at all. We kept the forum clean for that long and we still do not allow any trades or sales on the forum itself. But we created a platform where developers and users can do business, it took time as it had to be automated, we do not have the resources to run call centers in India, nor do we want to. Developers are been personally verified by us, they sign an a contract with six articles and you can be sure that on issues, we have the situation controlled. Developers can concentrate on the actual work they do, and not the way how to attract customers on their own selling platforms, at least the paid ones. For the free products, we now have a easy way to keep anything you run up to date, Honorbuddy streams the newest additions into it, when you launch it, so everything you have installed to help you, will be always up to date. We will also work on an five-star rating system, where you can directly rate the product you use, a month after your first install of it. The Store is in Beta now, only well known developers may apply, the quality in it is very high and will be very high, as we will approve every developer and every product manually. There are not enough people in the world we could hire, to be able to offer you all the addtions that are done by the community, nor will the Lifetime price be able to cover it. We stay focused on what we can do best, Bots. The community does what it can do best, take their ideas and add value to our base. What might be the pros: * High Quality Addions to our Bots * Products we never thought of * Easy to maintain Addons, always up to date * Focus of the Devs where it belongs * Safe and secure payments to Bossland GmbH * Full refunds no question asked within 7 days of purchase The only negative impact, that i have read from our users, is that they fear, that now every product will be paid and really expensive, even much more expensive then the bot itself. This is a free market, developers can price their work as they wish, but customers have the same freedom; they can decide weither to buy something or not, therefore I am confident, that the market will arrive at the right price. And for the free products, there will always be free products, no developer of a premium product will let the chance go away, to show you his products potential with a free version of their premium product. Use this thread to discuss what bothers you or why you are happy that this finally happened.
