aeryaery Gtricks Forum in 2.2 :) ✭✭✭

Well, Nebula is fast reaching 4000 download mark.

I never thought it would be so popular. I am so happy right now. Thanks to you all.

On this occasion, to all my dear vanilla members, because I love you, let me announce with great pleasure that I will be upgrading it for compatibility for 2.1 as soon as it comes out.

Work starts tonight :) Wish me luck.

Thanks again to everyone.

Love.

    let's see 4000 downloads time $10 a pop = $40,000
    at $5 a donation = $20,000
    at $1 donation = $2000
    at 1 cent = $200
    at $0 donation per download = $0

    Hope you got some donations for your work and time :).

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    You know how much I got - Zilch.

    That's right. ZERO. Absolutely zero. 4000 requests for buying me a coffee and all I have is empty containers.

    Not that I am complaining. I am happy with 4000 downloads and valuable help from the community.

    Just an FYI on downloads.

    if you update a version - the updaters add an increment.
    if someone downloads your version and it times out, they try again it increments download count.
    you get a robot downloadover and over it increments download count.
    you get some one just looking, but not using it uploads increment count.

    so you need to pare down the count.

    lets say 2.5% of the downloads are actually forums using it.

    4000 x 2.5% = 100 forums guestimated using theme.

    of the 100 forums - 95% of the people would like to contribute but are too poor.
    that leaves 5% or 5 forums.

    of those 5 forums - 2 people don't have the time , 1 person doesn't know how to donate, and one person knows how to donate but doesn't have a paypal account. and one person would like to buy you a coffee, has a paypal account, but doesn't know if you want cream and sugar with your coffee (so instead of getting you the worng coffee - they too declined) that explains the $0 donations. :(

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    How about a starbucks card ? Is there a place to send one to you ?

    I think I have had that many downloads if you count all my themes together :)

    I donated them and don't expect any payment. Somehow that is better for me as it is I feel responsible for them if someone complains about something ...... oyvey!

    @vrijvlinder for the sake of open equality, I prefer not to disclose.

    I have found that new media has imposed selfish perceptions about countries that affect normal people perception.
