    Non-spammy posts.

    Posts = Comments?
    Can comments be also counted in posts?

  • raindog308raindog308 Administrator

    comments count as posts.

  • Question,

    I see clouvider posting a £139/mo offer however, when you scroll to the bottom of his post there is one promo which is within the max price rules.

    So if you post an offer it only has to contain one item within the max price rule, anyrhing else can be above it, is that true?

    No, every deal posted has to be within the price limits.

  • @marvel - what I've seen is people that have been here for a long time tend to not get in trouble when they ignore the rules. @mikept @clouvider please read rules. Some even post in the wrong categories and mods dont give a shit

    Well, you’ve posted in general category and I may have taken a misguided decision to launch a new service on LET while forgetting the Xmas is over in a moment of excitement ;-)

    They may be referring to this:

    Shared Hosting rules => VPS pricing rules apply, with the exception of: max $48 per billing period.

    Looking there i see

    If you've been in business for over a year, the maximum billing period allowed is yearly ($84/year).

    however on the shared rules itself the main pricing limitation seems to be:

    Only post offers that are under $7/month or equivalent recurring.

    I am also curious if/how those relate to a lifetime offers thread i saw recently.

  • Lifetime offer limits are simply not spelled out. New rules are needed.

    Hmm makes sense. I would like to offer my apologies then and ask a mod to clarify if possible! 😁

    Could we bump the VPS to $10 and Dedicated to $100?

    Those requests are usually a hard no.

    Never hurts to ask.
    All in all though. $10 a month is still fairly cheap depending on the specs.

    Yes, in North America, it's a pittance. But there's a bunch of foreigners on this site that have annual incomes in the single digit thousands...

    Too bad you didn't read the rules sufficiently beforehand

    Congrats on your first post

    Rules updated to include the same rule on Giveaways that is in the general rules:

    Giveaways

    Anyone (including providers) wishing to offer a giveaway to the community must receive permission from an admin prior to posting. We are generally happy to do so but want to protect the community from scams.

    Only post offers that are under $7/month or equivalent recurring.

    Rules updated to include Service Transfer rules:

    1. Posting service transfers do not require any special tags.
    2. Members can only list 1 service transfer thread per 10 days.
    3. You need to have been registered for at least 30 days and have at least 25 non-spammy posts to post a service transfer.
    4. The selling price for the service cannot be more than 2 times the recurring price, or $10, whichever is higher.
    5. The transfer must be allowed by the provider and done in official methods. Transferring the whole account by changing the account information is not allowed.
    6. We don't hold any responsibility for potential disputes between the two parties. Participating in service transfers is at your own risk.

    I modified the pricing rules for:

    1. Dedicated servers: Increased to $100/month max to mirror LowEndBox
    2. Reseller: Simplified pricing rules to match VPS rules at $84/year - driven by three years of annual cPanel price increases

    Appreciate the dedicated server price increase. We will be able to post more of our higher ram servers now.

    Yes I think the increase makes sense given current market realities!
