  • This is cool. Any eventual changes coming to LET offers as well?

  • BradBrad Member, Provider

    What about yearly pricing? No need to be discounted, correct?

    Got it. Am on mobile and i readed it like that.

  • jarjar Provider

    Anything is worth a try. I don't think LEB can lose traffic right now. The visitors that are still visiting, they're not easily lost. The visitors that are already gone... Well they won't come back without something changing.

    Whether or not it's the right change, well, that's what experiments are for :)

  • Can we limit the shit options; IE everything but the VPSes to no more than 2 a week

  • Nooo crap now none of the $7 posts actually make sense dangit

    This is sometimes simply impossible, or the vendor will lose money :P

    (Edit: fixed your typo)

  • Can we just remove all limits? LEB is becoming yet another hosting blog, 8(!) years ago when it started, we hardly had any VPS or dedicated providers which could meet the price range, and now with the increased prices, shared hosting, domains, used car sales and penis enlargement offers, what's the point in keeping any price limits?

    The reality is that as times change so does peoples wants and desires. They aren't going to come to the site if we keep doing what we were doing 8 years ago. Since we're technology focused, 8 years ago is a completely different world then it is today.

    I want the community to thrive and be successful, and for the site to be a positive resource for people. I think that's what everyone wants?

    There's no way for the site(s) to be successful for colocrossing long term but to keep visitors returning for more. Any motivation for improvement is a positive thing, it has to be the same impact either way.

    This is a good thing.

    I'm not convinced that today's lunacy, derailing and drama are compatible with making LET a 'positive resource'.

    If that's the ultimate aim, maybe it's time to tell all the nutters that it's time to start to behave or fuck off?

    "positive resource" can also mean a source of laughter. Trust me, over the years I've had my fair shares of laughs over here.

    I just can't see any companies I know wanting to advertise a $150 managed server here, of course it's a limit, not a target but along comes @DewlanceVPS with exactly that..

    In fact all that will happen is the same shitty services increasing prices and trying to tell us that the $2 service yesterday is now far superior at $10 today.

    So yeah, someone said it above, same crap being peddled at a higher price.

    Nah, those companies won't come here for the most part, there is a good reason for many good providers that could offer here don't, the reputation of LET/LEB as a shit pit of cheap arses, complaints for tickets responses taking longer than 5 minutes for a $1 service and of course the revenge DDoS attacks.

    I went out to a lot of providers when I was moderator who did fit the $7 limit and asked them to submit offers but they all said they same thing when I mentioned LET/LEB, GTFO. They didn't want the average hole in head client available here.

    Look at VPSBoard when it first started out, the same thing will happen. All the providers here rushed over to avoid the $7 limit and try to charge higher prices, people are really not that stupid. Once you set the bar low in the industry people won't let you raise it because they know your pricing history.

    Of course it would allow the likes of BuyVM and RamNode back in with some deals but they are so well known it will no have a great impact.

    Our new slices fit nicely in the LE pricing bracket <3

    I don't think the $10 increase is going to do much, but things like shared could be interesting so long as there is heavy vetting. It's so easy to start a business doing shared that i'd recommend it be limited to people that have already posted a VPS offer at some point in LE history.

    I would probably raise a high hell over this a few years ago, but honestly, these days when everyone got those 9 EUR i5s and i3s, not to mention with there being multiple solid dedi offers around 5-10 EUR available on a permanent basis, none of this even matters anymore, lol.

    It would be rather nice to see this as something like $4 without privacy and $8 with. even 4 isnt all that cheap without, and all we get is the cheapest providers that provide it as an overpriced gotcha or not at all.

    They bought it so they could push sale posts and fill Buffalo. LE was the last piece they needed to actually make Buffalo move, prior to that they simply played the Soon(tm) card saying a BUF location was on the way.

    I have no doubt it pulls some good revenue, but many of the slots these days are inhouse brands.

    Well, BuySellAds itself brings quite a bit in (per month) already. It's true that there are a few in-house brands, but there still are a few brands paying for the space.

    doghouch said: quite a bit in (per month) already

    Questionable, at least these days given how many CVPS/HVH/etc ads are in the rotation. It'd be like Biloh takes a $50 out of his left pocket and puts it in his right :P

    @AnthonySmith was pretty critical of the amount of views/clicks the ads actually got, especially once the pool got watered down further from 16 slots to 32 slots or whatever it was. The already low click rate got halved again with viewership being a lot lower (probably due to adblocks, etc).

  • @Francisco People wouldn't have ad-blocking software if ignorant site owners hadn't placed pop up ads, etc.

    Apart from that, CC makes it obvious that they want to maximise profit from the site. It's funny: why aren't there more threads complaining about ColoCrossing, rather other hosts? It's like they manage to dodge every bullet that comes at them.

    There's a fair share of those but it's not often to be support related since they automatic most of their offerings.

    To be honest I rared see a CC direct offer on WHT and such, its always though HVH or the likes.
