  • Thanks @AnthonySmith for this clean thread.

  • Rather than increase the monthly maximum for dedis, it might instead have been nicer to keep the max where it was, but start allowing setup fees. I've started to like setup fees for dedis, as an anti-shoemining measure.

    #lexit spread the word.

    Lol @ setup fees. It does not make sense.

    Agreed, set up fees to the budget masses will be as bad as a price increase, they wan't to pay the minimum and certainly not have to pay a set up fee. Miners are not the only ones that want a server short term.

    And really, people on here want to have the server and return within the month if the DD results do not meet their high expectations.

    Yep. DD is like the only thing that matters.

  • Putting this post here as well as the discussion post and this one is running in parallel:

    Ok well, as a wise man once said, opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one and you don't go out of your way (usually) to look deep into someone else's.

    So my final thoughts, as everything that can be said has been said and we are just circling around the same points now.

    This won't be reverted early.

    Dedicated offers are few and far between on LET currently.

    I and essentially LET as a body is not overly interested in what you can get somewhere else within our rules.

    We do see a large number of dedi requests that cannot be satisfied without our old rules.

    The trail will run.

    It is just a trial.

    You will all get the change to vote on it in April.

    Good night Seattle.

    Fair enough. Hetzner has them, Online has them, Kimsufi does, SYS sometimes does, I think OVH has had them in the past, and I do treat it as a price increase that I calculate by spreading it across 6 months or a year. I don't think I've ever kept a dedi less than that. So if the monthly fee is $X and the setup fee is $Y, maybe the limit could be something like (X + Y/6) <= 49 (or 84 or whatever).

    It's pretty silly if people go crazy over the Online and OVH flash sales (which are insanely cheap) but they aren't allowed in offer threads because they have setup fees. They are as low end as it gets.

    #lexit spread the word.

  • 84 is the answer to everything doubled.

    So long and thanks for all of the fish.

    • 7th Feb 2018 - updated rules regarding reselling

    • 8th Feb 2018 - made the rules more clear in regard to $7 p/month being the absolute maximum price equivalent over any term.

    • 10th Feb 2018 - No new shared only hosts, existing hosts grandfathered.

    AnthonySmith said: re-seller

    Nitpick, Am I the only one who thinks reseller is a valid word?

    AnthonySmith said: Using a nulled WHMCS

    What about HostBill etc? Perhaps nulled billing software?

    AnthonySmith said: maximum of one offer per 30 days with our permission

    :( Not that I post every 14 days (old rules) but is there a specific reason for the special case?

    AnthonySmith said: USD$84/month

    I know alot of people will object to this. But personally I don't care as it allows for more variety in the offers.

    Other than that quite fair.

  • It's ok I no longer use grammarly so the - should reduce now.

    Yep nulled in general, good point.

    Yep, I forget what it was now, let me get back to you.

    Great, we are keeping track of all dedi offers privately so we have some 3 month metrics as part of the trial.

  • $84 still doesn’t seem to be bringing much APAC dedis into LET. Am still hopeful.

    Of course. Wouldn't you instantly sign up when you realized that this might be the only chance at being able to offer your dedis to all of the money dripping premium costumers around here?

    Hello experts,

    I'm last bid, can I bid more? I want sleep, can't wait to countdown 0. https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/2678881#Comment_2678881

  • Yes, you can bid again. Minimal increment rule still applies.

  • Do we need to have a provider tag while offering beta tests for a panel (that would sell VMs in the future) ?

    If you are offering the tests for free then that is fine.

  • Sorry, so many things going on at the same time, it is the start of moving the none vps/hosting services I.e. None core stuff to a 30 day rotation, or at least that was the thinking, given that people don't even want shared Hosting here I don't know which direction it will go now, thoughts are welcome!

    @AnthonySmith I don't like shared hosts either, unless someone is doing something special (yet to see) it's all the same and too cheap for real sustainability. But innovative ideas that don't fit any category? I enjoy reading those threads.
