In general I agree with the sayings about Paypal.
In my statement I wanted only to say that it is not always the way
In most countries you can transfer the money from your virtual account to your own account. But there are countries you cannot e.g. switzerland.
And that is what I donot like in general namely to have only a virtual account, but that's personal.
So, I am happy Sunrise is established overhere. So also Sunrise gonna accept paypal , somewhere in April.
But let's stay with the point of no sales/feedback

The first time I used Paypal was when I made a donation to the MRC, and to be honest, I didn't hear about Paypal before.

My first impressions are good. It is easy, fast and (at least in appearance) a secure way for paying on-line.

What about creating a sort of 'MSX Shop' via WEB? Something like http://www.msxshop.com or similar. It could be a solution for MSX developers to join forces.

The site also could feature a mailing system for marketing purposes. I can imagine myself receiving an e-mail with a direct link to buy on-line MSX Software ^_^

Too nice to be true?

we are thinking of creating such an MSX shop already for a long time. However, we are still working these plans out... also, some other things like multi-languate, downloads, new articles etc. etc. have our main focus right now.

Wouldn't it be nice if some new people would help on those issues? Maybe it's a good idea to place an ad in stead of just the 'Join our Team' in the menu.

About the subject though. It's the same as always, you have to fight to make a name for yourself. A groups' first product almost never sells well! Then the word of mouth does its job and by the time you release your 2nd or 3rd product people will know you and more easily buy your stuff.
About feedback... It's difficult. As a programmer, I like hearing from people that use my products, even if it is negative. But as a user, I do not feel like emailing an author when I like his program either. I tend to think "he probably has enough other things to do with his time".

I think the 'no sales, no feedback' argument is just a poor excuse for reasons they do not want to express.

snout,


many interesting MSX groups like Bandwagon, Mark Jelsma and TeddyWareZ stopped creating new products for MSX as there were low/no sales and mostly only negative feedback.

count me out, i do not meet that profile so no "poor excuses" from me!

What? You've made it quite clear in other messages on this forum and elsewhere that you quit because your first and only game didn't sell well!
Now you say that's not the case, then what is your excuse?

Why don't you just make sure you write proper english? Do try not to contradict yourself either.

We consider doing this in a later stage of this 'project'.
