Changes and Explanation - JEDAN - 03-08-2015 08:47 PM
After a long period a few changes must be made here on 1-link.org regarding user classes and priority of filling requests and fixing reported links. I suppose everyone knows that our "blue's" always have priority for fulfilling all their wishes and that will continue. However, downgrading of accounts will be possible to, depending of usage frequency and date since last contribution. Our new user class will be supporters, and downgraded donators also will join this class. Members who made donations lower than US$10 will be added to this class too.
To explain the benefits of user classes:
Donator - our true power here. Without them, this board can't exist. Their contribution covers all our fees regarding services and hosting. All benefits that we offer are open for them (as long as requesting isn't excessive). There is full access to the transload section, where there are the A & Ebooks request section; the special, high priority movie and TV series section; and the transload service itself.
(You can read more about it here)
Posting in the Music download section is allowed!
Supporter - People who have stopped contributing (any reason) and members that has made donation less than US$10. They have medium to low priority for fulfilling of requests and fixing reported dead links,in some cases non.Unproper reports and request are ignored or deleted without any explanation. They can see the transload section, but cannot use it.
Registered - ordinary members can make requests and reports, but donators and Supporter have first priority.verry verry low or non response to everything regarding dloads.Unproper reports and request are ignored or deleted without any explanation.
For registered user that we have warned in the past, there is NO filling or fixing!
I was forced to take these steps since recently having to beg every month for contributions. There are a few members ("free-riders") who report like crazy. However, when help is needed, it is just ignored, they lay low for a few days, and then continue as normal.
It is important that all members follow and respect our rules. You can find them here:
A big thanks to those who financially contribute regularly. They are the lifeblood of this site.
So that's all for now people. I know not all will be happy with these changes, but happiness doesn't pay our bills every month...

Well done Jedan
I fully support your decision you provide a service and as such your costs should be covered as much as possible and fairly by all.
RE: Changes and Explanation - Brissie - 03-09-2015 11:22 AM
The steps your taking seem perfectly acceptable if the donators are keeping the board going for everyone then they deserve a little respect.
You & your team keep up the great work.

Ok - we'll see how this plays out. I'm glad you did something decisive. The site will be smaller, but stronger. I hope all goes well. you can count on me.
I don't contribute EVERY month, so I hope you don't bounce my status for that - my average monthly contribution always has, and will continue to be, well over $10.00.

Hope to contribute more- its called fixed income and doesn't go far.
Support any steps you have to take.
RE: Changes and Explanation - needtakehave - 03-10-2015 06:32 PM
I think this was a good decision
Also, like BenFW, I don't always contribute every month, but always try to if I can but hope that if we continue to contribute the majority of months except some here and there in a year, it won't affect our status (or is the top of the line only for people who contribute $10 EVERY month?)

Well said Jedan and much needed for this site to survive.
As stated there will be some who are not happy, but to survive and to grow changes are needed. Growing pains are never fun, but if it makes the site stronger in the long run I'm all for it.

As I have said before, what ever you need to do, do it. Best of luck.
