Yeah that's a whole new modification. I take paid jobs for new mod creation but they start at $500 paid at least partly up front. or I can do hourly support at $50 an hour.

I disagree with your reasons on not giving mods away and support. If SMF was to have the same reasons for making it freely available it would not be what it is today with the support of the people who make it. Just my $.02 anyway.

I used do that but never got any support really for additions or help with the mods. Tried donations failed. I might just take all my mods paid might be better off.

Then I humbly suggest that if your doing so good and your worth so much than please stop misleading people to think you'll assist with a package and simply pop it on a paid to download site rather than dumping something that has issues and then switching up by saying (not a direct quote here) "The paid version has far better support & fewer issues". Its just wrong to slap a person for doing what your indicating to do in a free community just so you can make a fast buck. If you cant back it then dont publicize it and if your no longer backing it then give up the reigns or pull it down.

But then.. everybody has an opinion and this is just mine..

I can explain this as simply as possible.. If I do it & implement I guarantee it.
If I do it and you implement it its a crap shoot.

Sorry people but I will no longer be offering my support for this mod.

Smoky Ill be keeping an eye out for your mod as I find the concept of this a necessity for many sites. Due to recent comments I can no longer back this one.

VB If you really wanted to make money off of this then the smart thing to do would have been to offer the Fake Cron functionality as a paid extra like you do with your mods. Offer the basic for free and the better version for cash. Ive always disagreed with that concept since SMF itself is free but I kept my mouth shut as even the free versions were very helpful to the community at large. However your very public smack down against people who are not paying you sickens me.

I suggest that if you just want money don't make mods for programs that are offered to the public freely. You should just be making all your own stuff from scratch.

i say let it stay, let vbgamer support it.

if he doesnt have time to support it, he should release it.. if he cared about the mod at all.

if he wants to turn it paid, that is on him, and anyone that would pay for it..

its odd, but all the other forums, and the blog communities do not charge for the mod *as i am aware of*

i know some people do place this type of mod high on the types of sites its used on.. i know i did.

i do understand on the time involved to create a mod, and the time to support it. but the fee that vbgamer has mentioned, perhaps if everyone charged what he has brought to the table, no one will spend 500, on just a mod adjustment to make someone else happy. im guessing he doesnt want to really help at all.

i do not know what the policy is for making a mod and not supporting it is.. i think it could be considered abandoned. in that case, perhaps the mod should be either auctioned off for the people more apt to do provide at least a "functioning" type, or it should be allowed to die.

this is what im thinking after thinking things thru.. i will still create my own, and it will be for beta and up.. as this one is still working for the 1.1.7 and all the information ins here in this thread with the help of those, besides me, that helped with the mod. 

i do appreciate all donations on this, thank you DirtRider.. and there was one other person that donated, and with the amount of encouragement here that has gone on from last night to today, the feed poster will be living again soon, with total support, starting at the beta level..

I hate to tell you, but you aren't the only one.  Right now the MOD isn't being supported and isn't being released to Smokey, so it looks like it will just die until w new one gets made.  Mine doesn't work either :(

I have to agree. :)
I see people being "offended" by truthful statements, as there will no doubt be someone standing in defence mode as I type, but there are times and 'places' for such talk, and I feel support areas aren't the place to tear people down.

Mods/packages in other communities(and sometimes here) are often supported by "The Community", due to lack of time on the authors part, or other worldly measures.
It is fact that most know more than others in certain areas, and contributions/input from those people help the progression of a project, and are ALWAYS appreciated!

As I read the last few pages, I see alot of emotion expressed, and people tip toeing through words, trying to keep things............... civil?

I have no problem with anybody, and often Im also caught up in little squabbles.
That is until I realise that there are ways to deal with things.
Discrediting someones efforts because they offer another avenue you may not agree with, especially in their support area, shows(In my opinion as always) no class. :(
Now Im not diggin at anybody, Im only voicing my opinion :)

VB's offerings arent the first Ive seen here(regarding payment), I even know authors offering mods the community frowns upon, but they are not being torn down. There's other methods to adopt for that.
I believe that if the author for whatever reason will or cannot assist, those generous enough to offer their time and knowledge, will.

Believe me, if I knew how to fix/repackage or whatever this mod, I would, and those that know me will know that is true. But I dont have have such knowledge, and I appreciate all offerings brought forth by any and everybody.

Those of you fantastic enough to offer us "wee people" your ideas, I applaud you. But dont let your feelings cloud the minds of on lookers, as it does harm to more than just the mod at hand. Ive read a user knocking all of Vbs mods, as if he has not made any positive contribution at all!! :-/

In short, I come to this thread for a solution, and all I read are.........
well, you aint blind.

My opinion, make a thread or speak privately for your "tear downs", but leave support areas to fulfil their primary function. There's nothing worse than sifting through chaos to find what you need. :)

Thank You to all that have helped out.

regards

I know this mod isn't supported anymore but maybe someone somewhere can help me

I installed the mod but when I try to add a News Reader I get the following error message


Database Error: MySQL server has gone away
File: /home2/MYSITEcom/public_html/forum/Sources/FeedPoster.php
Line: 172Database Error: MySQL server has gone away
File: /home2/MYSITEcom/public_html/forum/Sources/Load.php
Line: 2014


Is this the mod itself or my hosts not having fsock open and is there a way to fix it from my end?


vbgamer45

That's an issue with the host and their mysql setup

Thanks for your answer - is there anything specific I need to ask my hosts to do?  - sadly left to them they'll either deny anything is wrong or screw it up

dwdrum

man, what a bummer.  This Mod would be sooo kickass.  I'm good at alot of things, just not coding.

I respect the authors and their time.

If someone would make this work on 1.1.7 and/or 2.0   I bet there are plenty of people here that wouldn't mind throwing a few bucks in the hat

I being one of them.


Advanced Thanks to anyone willing to take on the project.

With the Greatest Respect:
