yeah maybe, but go back and read some of them, then read some reply by Collis, then go visit again the blog and compare with posts done so faar on various threads, you will realize all is answered based on how conversations went on topics regarding this 3 days. Upon all this, there are still things that makes me “LOL’ing”, example the few words under “Some Lessons Learned”...it reads “sales went down a little during the time the Birthday Bundle was up”.

I think there is an spelling erorr at the part “a little”

seems like you read only the half thread and poping out all negative facts, never saw a positive post from you… kinda weird

“I think in the long run the buzz and marketing will end up bringing us new buyers and this will balance out in the future. However it did mean that our 70% author commissions wasn’t timed so well. In previous years when we upped the % rates (this was our third year of doing this) it was always done on its own to great effect. So next year we’ll be splitting the two parts of the celebration to make sure authors get a bit more of a kick out of the celebrations.”

edit: thats true… I was there in that time and this % Boost in the previous years was a success for all authors

next fact: new buyers & members… the counter went up to 220,000 members in no time, everybody can agree with me on that
