How about an opposite approach for the developers instead of "each" product that goes out. Why such a harsh punishment for good developers for the bad products out there. Not only that, the developers would be responsible for modifications to a platform that changes quite often and has bugs/fixes that are constantly being tackled. Why not give an incentive for these developers instead of what's in their pockets. For instance, give them developer levels based on performance and feedback see more - maybe do more brainstorming to get a different approach. The more they get charged the more "we" get charged and it puts us at a different level of a free social networking platform than the rest that are out there. It's hard enough that it almost requires a developer to run a Dolphin site and help with modifications. I know I have paid a few to help me with my bugs and fixes, or modules that were not compatible to another, etc.. There is so much gray in a charging system for each mod. The developers have been more than gracious to me at my time of need, especially because I am not one. And with their hard work, the good developers deserve every penny they get, even if it is sippin on a Pina Colada at Maui w/their ideal person(s) standing on either side of them waving palms....
Exactly, I agree 200% to everything you said! Boonex thinks by charging more and more they can resolve the inherent issues with the system which is totally untrue. Like you said, eventually it's an additional cost for the customers. Like we said before if boonex can just differentiate developers properly based on feedback and performance, it will solve all the issues. But instead of improving the system, they are trying to revamp the whole process. Creating workarounds will not resolve the issue see more here. For e.g. go to market and then click "Browse All Products" and then click "hot" or "most popular" and you will see the top products with 8 reviews, 7 reviews, 2 reviews etc. Not sure what algorithm they are using that sorts the products in this fashion. Again, fix your system and nothing else is required.

Sincere opinion from a dolphin mod developer.

Below is the legacy version of the Boonex site, maintained for Dolphin.Pro 7.x support.
The new Dolphin solution is powered by UNA Community Management System.
