It's reasonable to believe that because it's a fairly big update ;) . I'm still holding my thumbs for a paid webmaster as well though. Maybe this could partly finance one. The update wasn't the thing I had hoped for the most but it's much better than an account sitting update or many other things suggested.

so basically the BIG UPDATE includes a "get rich quick" scheme and a few medals.

WOW.

and silly old me thought we're gonna get new xml features, a new map sorting filter, proper account sitting, a working functional feedback/rating system, an accurate scoring method, adjacent attacks, customizable autoattacks.

meh

Got to be able to pay those coders, so this makes good sense for a revenue stream.

Ah, the "extra money now for promised services later". After prizes, this is ~$5730 in profit. Call me cynical, but I'll believe it when I see it.

don't be cynical. the system works perfectly fine. hookers have been using it since the beginning of time :lol:

seriously now, if this is indeed lacks strategy then it's a darn crappy one. to make money you have to invest money. you improve your product before you ask for more money, you don't ask for more money promising to improve the product.

so hire some programmers implement things that have been requested for years, take this whole site to the next level and then double the premium price and add conquer credits for extra revenue.

Option 1: Spend money/time improving the site, maybe you get more premiums, maybe not. Most of these people are probably renewing anyway.

Option 2: iPad 2!!!

Gotta agree, cairns, you should be auto-enrolled for life for all your contributions. (But I'm prejudiced, I love most of your maps)

I think some people should get free passes to the Conquer Cup. Would be a nice gesture by CC to award those that have made considerable contributions to the site some extra privileges. Mapmakers, Mods etc. shouldn't have to pay for this. It would probably also encourage some more people to get involved in the site as well. A win win situation the way I see it.

I didn't see that part. Maybe it would make it less time consuming and I might be able to finish the tournaments I'm starting.... 8-[
