A big Thank you to Boonex and all your staff

Well i think this last week has been a roller coaster and boy what a ride?

Boonex stared by giving away well over 1/2 a million dollars in lifetime adfree licenses. this caused uproar in some quarters and Boonex responded with an even bigger offer.

One free license to every Unity account holder. well as there are some  45485 members, at $790 thats a staggering $35,933,150, yes 35 million.

but wait, the Contributors had their stars converted, with 554 of them that is at least $437,660. just for one each, but lots of people have more than one star. so i guess it would be closer to 1 million.

Smart pro owners had their one site smartpro license upgraded to the new £2900 (5 domain license.) theres another 1/4 of a million dollar


Did it stop there? noooo, Boonex then give out 1 free lifetime license for every 50 member points each member had. i have no way of knowning what that figure is, but i would guess at least $2 million dollars.

So Boonex gave away about 40 million Dollars worth of lifetime adfree license in the last week. WOW, Thank you Team Boonex from everyone.

On a personal note. i joined 2 years ago with Dolphin 6.0.0001, i could see back then that Dophin had potential, but was still very rough. but i wanted to give my support and bought contributor stars, and wrote/edited the documentation here in Trac, just something to help the community in my own way, and posting lots of advice.

so i ended up with 38 lifetime adfree licenses, free. thats $30,020 worth, Thank you Boonex, that was very generous. $30,020 ROI of a few hundred dollars a year. wow, but its not a ROI really, the ROI is going to be released soon, its Dolphin 7.

The Return on Investment wasnt cash, nor licenses, it was Dolphin 7 and the future versions. we have seen how Boonex have worked hard to make Dolphin into the next popular social network software, that will beat the rest.

Boonex just gave away 40 million Dollars of potential income to us all. lets show our gratitude and make a Donation of whatever you can afford.

Thank you Boonex from the bottom of my heart. x

Thank you Sammie! It was a great run, and we're looking forward to a great future. Dolphin 7 is nearly complete and Poseidon is brewing very well. BoonEx team is really excited and we couldn't be happier with the positive response we've got for our latest actions.

Great post Sammie. I purchased my first license with some investors help when it started with aeDating. I'm glad to be a part of the Boonex experience. I don't have much to give now but when I do, I will gladly donate a huge amount to show how much I appreciate what Boonex is doing. I did purchase the contributor star on my own. Great stuff Boonex. Keep it up. I will be promoting your software for sure.

Yes indeed thank you, the entire Boonex Team, this is over the top, in what you have done, and there are still those who are not satisfied, and i am sure they will be writing in asking for their portion of the 10k that you took in from donations. i just as Sammie, have continuously obtains contributor stars for startup sites, that for the most part were iffy at best as to what direction they were going to go, so the $100.00 for the one year license was well worth it, then boonex converted all of see more those contributor stars, (12) into lifetime licenses ahoy !!!! yes indeed i was willing to contribute. then above and beyond that, they were generous to offer one adfree lifetime license for every 50 member points i had acquired, these points were earned from the community, and for that to all of you who have given me a point in the past, Thanks a TON, so where there was no monetary gain for answering questions or guiding a new user in the right direction, my time has been compensated moreover than was ever anticipated by myself.

i am not here to boast about the number of free licenses i have recieved from boonex, what i am here to let you all know is that everything in life is reciprocative. my contributions to this community, were my efforts in helping escalate those new users or veteran users, when they were needing help.

Boonex, you have certainly done a huge philanthropical gesture. i think this is even beyond philanthropy, insomuch that you have given to all, able and unable, in regards to acquiring an adfree lifetime license.

Regards,
Thank you Boonex,
Thank you Dolphin Unity Community

While waiting for 6.2 to work on opening my site, I was put back, or to put it in a better way, I was brought forward with the announcement of Dolphin 7, paying for a SmartPro license was certainly made into a smarter move as I just looked in my account to find that not only have I received an unlimited license, but also in my SmartPro Account I now have 5 SmartPro Licenses, my maths tells me that the $1,000 SmartPro investment has now multiplied into 5 x $2,900 + $790 = $15,290

Roll on D7
Very see more Happy.
Thank You Boonex

Oop's just looked at the product page & SmartPro now comes with 5 licenses @ $2,900, but there is a bonus.
---------
And what's really special about SmartPro is that you get the right to "re-brand" BoonEx Mobile Apps as your own and submit to app stores under your name of choice, without reference to BoonEx. You may modify, re-design and extend them as you wish.

Still Happy

Boonex certainly deserves praise for their generosity and their high quality software, but so do the half dozen or so people who opposed their original policy, and had to endure slurs, abusive language and personal attacks bordering on slander- even attempts to have us removed from the community- just for expressing their opinions. Boonex should be complemented for listening to us also.
sammie
Holy shit Caltrade, what do you think you are? the famous 5? cant you make a post just once without bitching about something? here bitch about this:


go fuck yourself
fidelg3
I have to agree with sammie on this one.

Does anyone honestly think Boonex was so generous with all of us simply because some people were bitching.

I think Boonex's generosity stems truly from their vision of extending their products across the globe, not from pressure from a crowd of discontent users.

Guys, let´s enjoy the present, never said in a better context!

It doesn´t matter if Boonex did this because of our observations or for any other reason. Let´s just enjoy this and support them.

That´s all!

Have fun with the dolphin!!!!
Juker
Guys,

LOVE IS THE ANSWER - And I think Andrew knows this!

Caltrade - There are times when we should put AWAY OUR DIFFERENCES and move on! Your comments are untimely at best! There's a time to be angry and a time to rejoice, and right now we should all be grateful for this amazing blessing from Boonex.

And Sammie - Please try to be LADY-Like! I love you honey and I still remain your number one fan.

PEACE OUT!!!!!

Hi all,

I could´t stop thinking about how lucky we all are by being at the right place at the right time.

At the same time, I´m concerned about the solvency of the company that´s behind this software and, ultimately, behind our projects.

I think it would be great for all of us to know how Boonex is supported and how they´re planning to remain in business in the coming years. This is very important info for us.

My concern is that the pricing changes might have been because of a need see more for cash. And certainly, I would like Boonex to concentrate in programming, not in their finances.

Having said all this, I´d like to suggest a way to continuously support the company behind our websites, besides purchasing stars.

First, we need to know how many websites are using Dolphin without ads. These should donate every month. No maximum, but, yes, a minimum should be established. Let´s say $5, via Paypal. If anyone wants to have an ad free site, he/she would never care about $5/month.

I think this support would certainly help a lot.

I am willing to sign up for this. Who else?
