Big mike,
since you are advertising now and make revenue to support the forum are you going to give free downloads again? you know how many curry dishes i have to sell to generate $35-50? Curry is getting costing mucho denoro now to make due to commoditiy prices. Those oil /dollar speculators or dogs are too blame for that.

First, if you think the downloads are going to help you to be a better trader, then you are mistaken. Second, apart from the downloads, this site offers a lot of value for the elite membership price. Third, if you can't afford the elite membership price, then you shouldn't even be considering trading. Fourth, would you be asking him to increase elite membership prices if commodity prices were low? No, you would not, so as you can see the value of elite membership is not correlated to commodity prices in any degree and should not be adjusted accordingly.

your logic is flawed Vegas gambler.
If he is making money advertising,that covers the fees,I am all for that ...its capitalism.

All downloads that are programmed by others,were free before and the programmers did not get a cut of the fee revenues now since he is advertising and probably making more money and now he is double dipping.

Unless he shows us the numbers of revenue generated vs expenses he cannot justify his double dipping.
Also if you want to do that ,after expenses all revenue generated beyond should go to the programmers who ppl come here to download and also learn from their theory and practice as they so expound. They deserve a share of the profits,if not give it free.

Dont get me wrong,Mike does a good job here for that he deserves a good salary as well, but we are also talking about what is right. We want to see the balance sheet.

Commodity prices which are directly related to the dollar/speculators/oil prices etc etc is also directly related to my curry dishes. This cost is going to be extended to my customers.

You are also right that the elite membership is dirty cheap,but one doesnt need to pay for it if it generating revenue for him based on OTHERS work while he gets money from advertisers that is probably a whole lot more money.

May that Tandoori chicken dish with rice pilaf fulfill your empty stomach. Peace out.

I hear you, 50 bucks could be beyond someone reach. But you sound like gifted writer, make your case and pm directly to indie author for a personal copy.

shah,

From your name, you sound like a King (at least the king of curry) or a Moharajeh, what the heck are you selling curry dishes for? Programmers here have their own motivation to provide free programs, a kind of advertising or just for the the love it. Try to maintain a website for your kitchen that serves over 100,000 tandoori chicken meals a month.

Frankly, futures.io (formerly BMT) should charge a fee for just visiting this site and 99 cents a pop for any single simple download, elite downloads cost more. Suggest you propose to Mike to wrap the indicators in tandoori bread for shipping and get a cut. Imagine, with 1000 downloads and 10 cents a wrap, $100 a day buys a lot of curry.

Cheers!!

By the way, $50 is not a fee, its a donation and you can go as high and as many times as you wish to help Mike's moving to his dream island. As a biz man, you should know that is deductible.

You sound like you been hitting the strip of vegas and drinking that watered down alcohol they serve there.

Ya,being in Vegas you guys should know all about a bust!..You are living there of a housing bust,tourism bust,jobs bust. Looks like the nuclear fallout was better for you guys from the 40's-50's then what capitalism and the free markets did for ya! looool

Thats right programmers are a odd lot,remind me of the engineers I had as roomates. ANal.


Lets see the balance sheet Big mike(looks small to me in his picture).

Programmers need to be paid,if not send the programming to India. Very talented over there in the old country,surprised they fall for lowest bid each time. We need to get more greedy like our Chinese neighbors,but then again no one can match the greed of the western nations.
They are the true exploiters of the World.

I also want the leftover profits to also go to the Native AMericans...they really got shafted by the Europeans and the American gov.

Now make sure when you eat curry,the room is vented. Those farts are nasty.
