Honestly, they look pretty cool, especially because they look like that “Touch” from apples website.

Why would somebody purchase that? It’s too simple and can be re-created.

Try come up with something unique :)

Trying to beg sales will not work, just give it time and patience. if it doesn’t have any sales, no big worry.

I’m showing that your item was submitted for updating a day ago. That’s really quite normal…fast even.

Yeah, sorry Jeffrey, I’m impatient :)

I don’t want to moan, but the update queue is indeed slow.

My item is position 11 (at the time of this post), and it got reviewed within a day or so.

Is it not quicker to re-submit the whole thing, rather then the update queue?

Please do not use ioncube, I as a user (buyer), want to purchase -> put on localhost -> run.

That’s it. We should NOT have to do ANYTHING else to get it to work. No downloading, no installing other mods etc. Just buy and run.

There is nothing we can do about this – if there was, software such as vBulletin would of done it by now ;)

Honestly, you can’t stop it. You are selling code. Now, you’re on the internet, you can not expect it not to be stolen. People who believe or are “shocked” by their items being stolen are damn right foolish. It takes less the 30 seconds to buy a file, download it, and upload it and distribute it across the world. Look at Microsoft – their products get stolen all the time – yet people still pay for them.

No api will stop it, unless you’re allowed to encode the script, people will “null” it – I.E remove callbacks etc.

I am dead against any license keys, it’s stupid and pointless, as a user, I want to buy -> use, not faf around with some stupid license key – that is even easier to share!

If you want a method of not getting your scripts stolen – encode your demos, and just hope for the best. People who want to steal your scripts will do it not matter what protection you have.

while I won’t encourage warez, just look at some of the major forum scripts – they have been “nulled” but that doesn’t stop people from stealing them.

Piracy will always happen. Fact.

It seems like net.tuts+ have mac “fanboys”, what’s with all the Mac based posts, yes, we all know Mac is superior to windows bla bla bla.

Seriously though, I’ve seen article after article based on macs, and as a windows user, I feel it shuts part of the site for me.

Is it possible that every single mac article ALSO has a windows based one, it really is important to keep your audience as open as possible right? And for me, it seems like you’re going for the mac “fanboys”

Examples:

http://net.tutsplus.com/articles/web-roundups/10-terminal-commands-that-will-boost-your-productivity/

http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/quick-tip-getting-offline-access-with-html5-application-cache/ – he uses a Mac therefore the article is most likely good, but Windows can’t learn keyboard shortcuts etc.

Hello, I am very disappointed with the results of the recent html5 competition.

The reasons why is because the competition was unfair and not clear, you guys picked html5 applications to win, all the winners built great applications, however, I didn’t know that’s what you guys were looking for.

Lets take a look at the pointless Dweamer:

It’s useless, unless I am mistaken, it does not, not 1% help users with coding, it simple enhances dreamweaver, something that not a lot of people have – useless.

I thought you were looking for applications that helped users code or whatever, I didn’t know this was allowed :P

I am sorry, but I am out of ALL future competitions of net.tuts+ unless they give users a choice. Fancy giving $7000 of prizes to something that DOES NOT help you code…....

Overall, you must give us the choice to vote, otherwise, these competitions are useless.
