Having said all of that, does it seem to anyone else that since the Resource Manager went live, the people selling addons and styles has skyrocketed?
Example: Styles. The latest styles have 16 of the last 20 as paid only. For addons the number is only 7 of 18 (2 are tips & tricks and not an addon per se), but if you go a couple pages in you get 25 of the first 60. To contrast, after those 60 there are 0.
I guess what my point is (besides these sour grapes I know I'm going to be accused of) is that one of the things that made vB big in spite of crappy software was the vB.org addons. Yes, there were some pay ones there as well, but the ratio is much more skewed here. It feels like the vast majority of addons and styles from now on are going to be pay only.
Am I the only one feeling this way? If I am I'll slink off to my corner and STFU, but it seems to me to be this way.
And now I'll take my lumps.
