If I had unlimited funds, I would have no problem buying all of these add-ons and trying them out. However, what is the big encouragement to buy these add-ons?
Should, for example, paid add-ons require certain prerequisites? What if you buy an add-on and the quality is not what you expected?
For example, should paid add-ons require mandatory customer support for the life of it being in "paid" status?
Should paid add-ons be in a feature complete status only?
Should paid add-ons require a certain amount of functionality be added before it should be payable?
Should paid add-ons be reviewed by XF staff before they can be added to that part of the market place?
I went to a person who helped me move content that I extracted from my old database, with a paid add-on, into the regular XenForo thread format. This person did not ask for anything. Instead, they allowed me to donate what I thought this was worth to me. That seems like a fair market offer. I know that this merit system does not work, in general, but my point is I am noticing a lot of add-ons that seem to do things one major add-on probably should, that should cost the same amount of money.
Does anyone here agree with this? Why or why not? What would you contribute to these thoughts?
