Throw a Dog a Triberr Bone

January 15, 2013 , ,

The hardest working men in the publishing business have responded, repaired, and restructured the idea tested recently of limiting members’ posts to 6 per week. They truly care about being excellent Chiefs of this Digital Nation. They have graciously served all the free loading members like me who have gathered to suck down services and enjoy the free ride while they beta test the system. They have now generously capitulated to allow 14 posts to non paying members. This is perhaps a dangerous slippery slope for our three musketeers, caving to the whining of the never satisfied. To balance what has become an unfair fight in my estimation, I am going to start my subscription to the newly created Prime Lite. I double dog dare all other members of Triberr to follow suit. Put up, or shut up, as they say.

I do not resent losing the imaginary bones that were created as currency within they system. As Dan explained, since there is no way to spend them, they have been retired…like Green Stamps, or the game at the grocery store with the bingo stickers. Do NOT resent losing the silly bones. They were imaginary….okay? The expenses the Chiefs incur to create our little wonderland are real. So many have expressed opinions about how the system operates, but so few have bothered to pay for it. I personally love to pay for quality. It means that quality can thrive and be there for me next time I want to pay for it. Triberr is a very high quality service. I want to help it to grow and prosper, because it helps me grow and prosper.

I firmly believe that if you have time to write 14 blogs a week worth reading, you also have time to cough up $10 a month to keep the system flowing. Let us find that $10, and show our Chiefs we love what they do for us. If you have $40, I encourage you to just send it. Go Prime…this is probably the only thing in the world that you can do all the way to Prime for just $40 a month. If you have some reason you do not want to pay, I ,very specifically,do not want to hear about it. You can just go be cheap and quiet in your own pitiful corner.

Soon to be fitting right in…GEM SHOW!!!!!! I do want the tribe to thrive, and $10 is a pittance.

Thanks for the article. You do need to think globally however. $10 US is the average wage for a day in many Asian countries. So spending and value are assessed a bit differently. I don’t think many bootstrap developers think about this when applying the 3p’s of marketing.

That is a very good point. I joined with the ambition of using all the features. I can afford it and do not find it to be expensive…but naturally it will be for some people.

I just love the Triberr community (happy to have landed in a Tribe with you Pam), Dino and Dan are for sure the big motivators for a fair and exciting community.
It should be supported… (especially if you can afford it).
