The future of PinoyPC
« on: September 18, 2002, 08:42:29 AM »
Things have been pretty stagnant around here no?



Well, here's the reason: I'm planning on moving PinoyPC into a software based discussion instead of the web-based interface you see here right now. Read on before you flame me.



Here's the deal: We have only one way of accessing PinoyPC right now. And it's thru the web.

1. Web Access



I'm currently studying how to develop a software that is based on XML to allow you to read the threads, post replies, and create new topics, without having to connect to the net. It will only need to connect when downloading the new topics, and posting your replies.



So we'll call that, offline access.

1. Web Access

2. Offline Access



The software will be available only to subscribers of PinoyPC. Yes, we will move foward into subscriptions. Members will have added benefits like discounts on partner retailers, EB entrance fees, etc.



Subscribers will also get to browse PinoyPC with no ads and faster loading times. Plus, you'll get a little icon beside your name to signify that you're a premium subscriber.



How much? I don't know, something like 500 pesos per year or something. The goal here is not to make money since all premium members will be screened before being accepted. So even if you have money, but you're a troll, you still don't get in.



The details are still being worked out but the basic idea is that if you pay, you'll get the software, and the site without ads.

I suppose the premium plan is also available for Web Access?



Well having subscriptions is good so that PPC could host an EB somewhere like a warehouse where we can conduct a BYOPC event.

A forum for just the "l337"?



How about the suggestion some time ago to make the Troubleshooting thread into a premium function?  The boards are practically giving out free consultancy as is.

I'm still not sure what to make of it, but P500 per year does seem reasonable enough.

I hope the screening process will be effective. Apparently, we have at least a handful of good actors in our bunch.

It's hard for those of us outside the Philippines to attend the EB's though.
It's not about knowing all the answers, but knowing where to get the answers.

People from outside the philippines will not care as much about EB's and discount on retailers but I'm willing to pay for a better board, need more features.
