    z929669 got a reaction from TDBF in Advanced Tags & Prefixes - IPS 4.x   
    Your capitalistic prerogative, but ...
    You are going to lose at least one customer with unreasonable pricing like this ... and subscription-based to boot ... and I cannot even try before I buy ... and it 'feels' to me like you are counting on current-user dependency on your plugin to get them past the inner conflict of justifying the subscription-based pricing. This is price gouging in my book.
    You really think that this software is as essential as antivirus protection? You are pricing it like that. This extension is a nice-to-have, not a need-to-have (unless you are counting on existing customers not being able to live without it). It's a plugin. A good one, but still ...
    I use your extension in v3, and it works quite well (with some minor issues/limitations). When I move to IPB v4, I will happily return as a paying customer if you ever decide to price your extension more reasonably. You want 42 bucks? Fine. It hurts, but fine. You want $14/year? No way! I will learn to live without this one under the current conditions.
    :/
    PS: Price increase increases likelihood of piracy, especially when people think the price is unreasonable. IMO, you are effectively making it more of a target for piracy with subscription-based pricing.

    Agree emphatically with the OP.

    Too many features of IPB (that are standard offerings of other free boards software) are only accessible via community plug-ins. Plug-ins are just bad from a maintenance standpoint. Start taking note of the popularity of certain plugins and community feedback and begin integrating these features please.

    Certain features should be bundled with IPB, and this is one of them :

    EDIT: Could the OP-er please add a poll to present IPS admin with a better account of the desirability of this feature?
