Freemium concept

aCis project uses a freemium concept : a type of business model that offers basic features to users at no cost and charges a premium for supplemental or advanced features.

My duty is to provide sources, and while I don't have any word to say about who does what with my sources, I have the right to choose who got access to it.

Types of groups

FREE USER
  • Public branch is updated every year.
  • The stability state isn't guaranteed - it is delivered "as it".
  • Free users can access to the Discord channel to get support.
  • Free users, even based on outdated branch, can contribute to project, and be rewarded for their work (see "Contribution" section).

DONATOR
  • You will be registered into the private Gitlab, for the time of your subscription.
  • You will have access to specific forums boards, such as "custom" && "FAQ".
  • I will give support for any retail issue you report, based on my own IRL timelapse / project handling. I don't busy about customs.
  • If you contribute to project, you can be rewarded for your work (see "Contribution" section).

SUPPORTER
  • Free users, as Donators, can reach that status sharing enough bugfixes or contributing enough to the pack they're declared "essential".
  • Main contributors are rewarded by "Supporter" status, they got a direct access to sources, to all boards and don't pay any fee.
  • That access is maintained until they stop to contribute or contribution amount becomes too low.

Contribution

Added to monetary support, we believe about cooperation and so your CONTRIBUTIONS (bugfixes) can be used instead of money. Contribution normally can't pay the joining fee, but under specific circumstances (big rework, event reward etc) I can reward people with such access.

Contribution is taken in consideration when your work is COMMITED, and is based on the complexity of the report/bugfix.

Price

Joining / rejoining donation: 100€
This fee has to be paid if you are joining or rejoining aCis project. Next month, and all other months, you will have to donate only basic monthly donation.

The "rejoin" definition is basically if you failed to pay the monthly fee at time (you got the entire month to pay) and got at least one unpaid month between your 2 last payments.

Monthly donation: 10€
This fee has to be paid every month. In case you fail to deliver it at time, you will be considered "re-joining" the project.

Once you donated, send me a PM on one of following platforms, I will manually setup your forum account :
- aCis forums, via my profile (send PM)
- MxC forums, via my profile (send PM)
- aCis Discord channel

***If your payment doesn't follow my conditions, I will return it back to you.***

Once you donated, send me a PM on one of following platforms, I will manually setup your forum account :

Payment methods

I decided to give more tools to ppl who want to help:

  • Bug archives section is readable anew for normal users (avoid ppl to re-post a bug they think I deleted...)
  • A public workbench is opened, in addition of the private workbench (read the sticky topic on it for more infos about that section)
If you got ideas to feed public workbench, feel free to post ideas / discuss on Tavern about it about it. I give you opportunity to make your proofs, on near anything related to DP side.

The first topic is simplified, updated and the title is more clear for lazy asses who can't find 1 topic on 10 accessible from guests.

Pack User system will be officially dropped at the end of the week (and users aswell). Eventually a "looking-the-same-but-not-exact-same" rank will be deployed (like for old helpers who don't help anymore, and pack users who helped but not enough) : a sort of pool which next step is suppsoed to be Inner Circle.

Updated with experimental freemium system.

You can eventually contact me for more infos, in order I improve the first post before I launch that concept. The next free revision will be 260, we're at rev 255. You can begin to purchase when 260 is out.

Contributors can be included anytime, but for instance you only get access to rev 243 atm (you still can work on scripts folder and such).

Edited on Pricing section.

As the free version is anyway delayed of 10 revs, there is no reason you pay for 9 revs. The only "malus" is one revision you will pay will be a free revision in 10 revs (1 month later)... It means I accept 10€ range donation (10/20/30/40/50/...).

I only accept renew/new subscriptions at the end/begin of a 10 revs cycle (as my goal isn't to bother with excel files with who bought what in which date, but developping a pack). Which means I will ignore all donations during that time. If eventually I got left donations which haven't been rewarded, I will activate your account at the end/begin of a 10 revs cycle.

Send me a PM on those forums or on MxC, with terms of agreements (few words about you accepting to donate for aCis) and add your Paypal account and/or name. Why ?

  • I'm not logged on Paypal account every hour of every day (not my goal neither)
  • In case you want to take back your money when I sent you the services, I will have a proof you're a bad customer.

Edited terms

Donators are now known as Customers.
Watchers are now Outer Circle, and are one part of the freemium concept (same forum accesses than Customers, minus the Customers section). Outer circle regroups old helpers who didn't help since a while, or newcomers which are "hope" for aCis future (future pretenders at Inner Circle rank).

Edited pricing / Customers section

I accept ppl anytime (I will add you on the beginning of a revision cycle). For example, if someone wants to join when rev 263 is out, he will get 260-270.

I give support for any bugs concerning aCis, no matter your server. I still don't busy about your customs issues.

From now, and to easier the Customer rank system, I accept to add you on the end of the current cycle from the moment you pay the end of the current + at least one cycle.

Meaning if we're at rev 328 and you want to get access directly, you have to pay one cycle 10€ (330 - 339) + 2€ (328, 329) = 12€ using family option or 13,2€ (12€ + 10%) with goods or services. In the current example, you get access directly to rev 328 up to rev 339 and dropped at 340.

My point of using cycle is simply to clean ranks fast, notably to avoid to check every rev if someone must be dropped or no. There's not as much problems to add ppl than to remove them, and as a Customer you got the feeling to pay and wait to get access, which can be boring. That's why I drop that limitation.

The limitation still exists for the end of the cycle. You still have to be dropped at a 0 revision (easier management).

Edited prices section... Again.

Due to a SweeTs remark, I decided to edit things. People pay a static 10€/cycle, no matter if cycle is almost ended, as you get access to all revisions.

If you hate SweeTs, do it PMing him http://z0r.de/ links.

Price section is reworked to be more clear. Addition of payment methods section.

You can now pay me in LTC/DOGE cryptos (the ones with lowest fees). Because I like to lose money over cryptos, feel free to use it. :dw2_14:

Added related infos on BAT payment method

You can now pay me in BAT. BAT is a crypto token used by Brave browser in order to reward content creator. You can generate BAT seeing ads (some little popups).

Brave is a pretty much decent browser based on Chromium engine, which I use on a daily base.

A referal link to the Brave browser is also added.
