Confused about payment options!
« on: February 10, 2012, 09:33:51 am »
Hi, I've just set up a forum, but I find the various payment options very confusing.


I even had to Google 'Ad Free Credits' as I couldn't find any explanation on this site as to what that means  support
Even now, I haven't found any explanation as to why I'm not seeing ads, yet I haven't paid for any 'Ad Free Credits'. Is there a 'grace period'?
It may seem obvious to anyone who is used to building forums etc. but as a complete beginner, there seems to be very little help.


Also, no explanation as to how much space a 'free' forum has, but confusing options; eg. Ultimate Plan at $39/$19.95 a month gives 250Mb, but Downloads Pro for a one-off  $30 gives 'unlimited number of files'.
Does that mean for $30, you get unlimited space??


If I took the Ultimate Plan, at what point does the 'sale' at $19.95 end - is it 6 months, 12 months or whatever?


No prices shown for 'Remove Footer Information' or 'Hosting Featured Listing'  support


Sorry, I'm not trying to knock the site, but to someone just starting out, it's all very confusing  support

If you had 10 Ad Free Credits, there will be no advertisements for 10 clicks on any page of your website. So if your forum had 10 ad free credits and I go to it, 1 off that credit. Counts for guests as well, not just members.
I believe there is a grace period going on right now for newly registered forums. I forgot how long it lasts though.
Every free forum has a total of 10mb of free space set aside for avatars and attachments. The Downloads Pro package does not give you unlimited space and even says it:

Notes hosted downloads limited to max size of 5mb
You can easily get around that limitation however if you're uploading files bigger than 5mb by using a program such as HJSplit to split files into smaller pieces and individually upload them.
This service is relatively new(in my opinion) so if you took the Unlimited plan, it will be $19.95 every month until the owner decides to put it back to $39.
I'm surprised that I didn't see any price tag for removing footer info and hosting featured listing, however if you click the buy now button, PayPal will display a sidebar showing you what you're buying and what much it costs. To remove the Footer Information, that will be $30 and to get your forum featured, that will be $10.

I apologize that this all seems a bit confusing but that's why there's a support forum here :P
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

There is a grace period of 45 days without ads.  Ad Free Credits allows for no ads to be shown on a page. Each time a page is viewed or reloaded a credit is used.

A free forum comes with I believe 10mb of space.   Downloads Pro is different is like a file hosting system not attachments and that can host unlimited files.
Space on the otherhand is counted for attachments and gallery pictures.
