Please stop your non-stop rants about others in many threads. If you have something constructive to post, please go ahead. If you have a negative remark to make, make one (!!) in a constructive way, but stop posting over and over again the same story.

Get over it.... everything I post is constructive. It's the people who didnt want to donate and leach off of these hack authors who ruined it for everyone. Hell I offered cing several hundred dollars to rework this hack for 3.5 and I didnt even care if everyone else could download it for free.

Get off my arse and go back to work.

This horse has offically been beaten, there is no point in posting such things anymore as the author seems to have moved on to other things.

You must relize that we are all volunteers here, including the staff and all hack authors. The author is totally within his rights to move on to other things or remove his code from this site.

We are aware of this and will figure out exactly how it will be handled after the 3.5 upgrade, we wish to preserve all the support posts so that complicates things a bit.

I just wanted to say one thing about this. This site has always been based on the idea of exchanging code for free, this benifits both the end user and people who write code for their own site. To call these people 'leechers' is an insult and many of them give back to the modifications they install themselves in ways other then money, these include: beta testing, bug fixing, translation, or writting their own modifications to the original code.

normally i wouldn't jump into this discussion when it get's to people's feeling's being hurt or moderator's being upset with people. But, i really need to throw out an idea here, cause i totally disagree with the way this is being handled.

Why can't there be a section on this site with sub forum's, the sub forum's will be for coder's. Each coder, if proven and spend's time on this site and give's to the community here, can have his own room. That way, cinq or the geek, or yoyoyo, etc..can put up their site addon's and new member's or member's like myself that aren't savvy with code, can come and check stuff out. The owner of the code or anyone he feel's can help with the code, will help there....like yoyoyo or whom ever....

I know people will say use the search button, but that is not my point. If a hack is complete, the owner of the software can put it in his own sub section of the site, he can even put up beta testing software and get the bug's fixed during the beta run.

I personally have been searching just for this type of software and i too was/am willing to pay. I came to this site here, looking for information on building my site (which i have found alot of), and looking to see how people better their sites. I think my site has come along way's do to the efforts of people who have shared their work with me and i truly appreciate that. But not all of us can just throw a hack onto our sites and it become's frustrating when you know there is a great program and it get's pulled completely from the internet like this. I have tryed now for a week to get the geek's GAS program running on my site and i just can't do it, so i searched and searched and the next best thing sounded like Cinq's work. Do to a database error, his site is gone, and i think that is terrible, but would my above suggestion help eliminate problem's like that? Then it is at a central location and other's can help other's if that makes any sense if cinq is busy with life.....

Just my .02, i don't think what cmiller1014 said was mean or vicious in anyway, other then not understanding why, if his database is corrupt, the file can't be found here? I think that is a great question. I don't think cinq need's to answer that at all if he doesn't want to. I just don't understand, why this has become such a highly debated issue. If he doesn't want to share, then don't share, if it is just as stated, a database error, then if there was a section here for cinq, he could already have had the file stored here or this may never have happened......

This thread has outlived its purpose ( purpose being, yes, my site is down but I am working to get it back up, with Kirby's help ).

And for the record Brad, I don't think I have said anywhere I am throwing in the towel and "have moved on to other things."

I would've helped anyone, even if they didn't donate. So it doesn't make you any more special than anyone else, just because you were willing to donate.
Yes, I appreciate the thought, but if you could still check your private messages over on my site ( which you cant now..duh ), you would have noticed that all I asked of you was an admincp account and an ftp account, so that I could help you. But all your replies to me, not a single one volunteered this information. Like I said, I can help, but some people don't seem to want to be helped. So I am puzzled. You want help but you don't want to receive it and yet you go around saying I am useless in supporting my hack.
It isn't "the people who didnt want to donate and leach off of these hack authors who ruined it for everyone." It's people like you, whom despite attempts by the hack authors, whom within their means offer something for free, offer to help for free and yet get this kind of crap, that ruins it for everyone.

Think about that for a second.
