Unless you're an AeMe 2.0 user then you should be able to see there commercial support board here.

Well, only 40% of vbgamer's mods were given to him, and really, the rest are not that well coded. I remember a bit back, a list of bad style matters and borderline vulnerabilities was handed to vbgamer and there was an actual argument with him. (For example, it was possible to add items to non existent albums in SMF Gallery Lite)

Oh, and queries in templates. But apparently that was from when rules were 'more lax'. Despite the mods still being updated.

I find myself at a strange juncture, I don't want to write any more mods generally but I'm tempted to go make mods to replace his, ones that are well written and will mean there is no reason for him to stick around because everything he touches isn't friendly.

I also reminded the team yesterday that he is blatantly exempt from rules, after publishing two mods he hasn't even tested (one by his own admission), and both I spent time fixing previously.
That would actually be awesome as i read the post about him ripping you off for the 250.00 i wanted to buy that from him but i didn't he seemed shady and a bit lazy i mean who runs a support forum for items you code and sell on a old smf 1.1.11 with the default theme?> I mean make it attractive then i noticed he wasnt even using his store to sell and process his transaction to sell his store. Talk about no faith in your work. But on a side note if you were to build a site store mod for sites to sell stuff and a site marketplace for members to sell i would be first in line to buy it.

We'll definitely offer a mod site, although it'll probably be 'cooler' than SMF's (I don't really see myself analyzing mods one by one...), I'm thinking it could automatically analyze the packages to determine whether they're "hacks" or "plugins" (more on that later), so that'd be a first point of choice (technically, people will want to install plugins, rather than hacks), and then people would be able to vote on the quality of a mod -- the relevance of what it does, and the quality of how it implements it.

As for vbgamer -- of course he wouldn't use his software on his website. Remember, he's trying to sell it, not to make people run away screaming!

Speaking of selling, the guys at autoembed are starting to sell commercial licenses $15 for single and $25 for developer (multiple) at least the prices are not as ridiculous as vbgamer stuff.

Actually, he does use his download pro mod on his site now.

Well, I doubt you'll get support on the SMF board, seeing how Nao is post banned, and the only reason I posted today was to re-assert the rights to my work on something.

Well, it might help if you provide some details so we don't have to guess, like Aeva version, SMF version, whether there's anything in the error log, when it stopped working, what type of media it's not working on, that kind of thing.

Of course, there's no guarantee of support either way, Nao and I are both really busy on non-Aeva projects right now (not that I'm officially affiliated with Aeva anyway), but support is more likely for the paid version. Since then it's not in a thread marked 'no support'.

The best way to do this is simply giving the option to sort out compatible mods then select the category. Nothing more annoying then finding the perfect mod and then realizing its not for V2.
Functionality is more Important than looks... Wait is it the other way around, I forget?
