Base Plan Question

Mike Wentworth 6 лет назад в Оплата • обновлен Sergey Stukov (co-founder) 6 лет назад 9

I'm on the trial period for Base, and I really like it. But really, when I added up all the money, it's about $180 a year, for only two features. 

  1. Categories (No Subcategories -- why can't it just come WITHIN, categories?) 
  2. 3 Members (why not make it so that if you pay, and as long as you pay, you can add up to 6? That would make more sense? 3 for free, 3 more for base, and 3 more for the other plan? 

Now there is no other place I would like to invest money in, but I don't make in income. I start college soon, my parents would be the one paying. That's pretty expensive, considering there isn't a huge difference between Base and Free.

For example. If I was getting 6 Staff, Categories and Subcategories and I was able to add widget to home-screen, that would be nice, and worth $180 a year, $15 a month.

As a business person, what do you suggest to me? Is there another plan? Base is nice, but it minors a few features I need extensively.



Blake, we moved your account on the Custom service plan with special pricing.

Really? With that price you can probably get unlimited staff with a domain name...It might be too much...and really, I'm just about saving money :)


What host offers unlimited staff,  css domain? But I ddon't want to leave that's why I'm asking for his opinion. 

GetSatifaction, they offer 10 staff/mods and unlimited everything else under any paid plan.

I understand not wanting to leave though...

That's really cool. Wow. But I still prefer UserEcho to ANYTHING else. I LOVE how it works. It's just think about it... I'm beginning college and managing a community. I don't have money to pay that much.. I don't make any income. My father does. And to ask him, he'll just be like "Why don't they give you almost everything then, it's just a forum.." In Russian of course... he doesn't know much English, my fater. (Ukraine)/Black Sea.

I think I'll still stick with UserEcho, but please help me out here, and I know you helped me out three times already Sergey, but if you think about it, I'm only 19, so the fact that I'm willing to pay is good, but if I don't get the features I need, then why really pay? I can't worry about subcategories or how many staff I can have, that just makes it more stressful for me.

I'd  love to work at UserEcho after I graduate from C++/Java and Engineering actually, but that's because I like the company. 

Then why are you getting ripped off, just use Google Groups...

This is a rough draft, I pulled it up for free, no category or staff label limit: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/technasium

But I like UserEcho, I'm hoping I don't have to switch. :( It's really stressful for me, I don't have an income, and I can't pay so much for something I get the $256 plan for free on Google..

Sergey, I'm only asking from honesty, I really need some help here. Why would I pay? How? All these feature, like unlimited staff is something I really need. Also categories, I need, no subcategory.I don't even need Subcategories although would be nice but how can I afford? Google offers your plan $256 for absolutely $0.

Keep in mind, I'm not like other communities here. I use this as a FORUM, that means twice as many users, and it'll keep growing, I don't use this as customer feedback like everyone else, so I need some leeway, especially I have no income, and won't be able to pay. Especially when offered free via Google. I strongly love UserEcho just don't know what to do.

@Bobby, no. I'm never switching. I'm going to ask, since I can't afford it if I can just keep categories and one more staff, but even if not, I'll go to free plan. I'm loyal to UserEcho, it's amazing. I'll never leave. I actually recommended it to my school... they loved UserEcho.

Never mind,  it's okay. They won't be able to pay. I use as forum and categories and staff with no limit is important to me, but only my dad works and it's hard for him.  Thanks though
