Pirating ... 30 day trials ... hmmm ...

Like banning a person ... if they really want they can get it. think about how many folks who don't really know how to protect their servers. People with hosting services are a bit better off but if you're on your own and have domebody get on your box .. well what can you say .. but if somebody wanted something that bad ... I'm sure they're not going to be a major site to begin with.

30 day trial would be interesting for let's say ... dev boxes ... I'm sure there are special registration codes that are already used in this manner ... if there aren't any ... I bet it wouldn't be that hard to implement on GTs side ... OR how about dev boxes located through the GT site, where users sign up for a 30 day trial "hosting account" ... boxes that could be seperated off the main trunk lines therefore preventing back door entrances to the main servers at GT. Or somethign along of a bang me around demo versions might be feasible solution. I would love to see the back end to Gossmaer Mail and DBMan SQL ...

I totally understand people who contemplate about spending money or not on a more advanced script. I myself spent over a year debating whether to get LinksSQL or not, wanting it was easy but actually spending the money is another story. haha, aren't people strange ... spend $200 on a new CD burner but spending the same money on a script those same folks become all of a sudden stingy ... ahhh human psyche is quite interesting.

But even if you did have a chance to demo and play with it onyour own site would you actually still buy it??? Wanting it more - YES but the money factor still remains. If you buy the script will you be able to get the same satisfaction a CD burner would give you?

I guess for myself a fully "play with me" demo would do just as fine for me. Provide enough chances for wanting it more and still provide GT with the security that thousands of demo copies won't be available on the net for tampering.

just some ideas ....
