True that!

Interesting.

Its become a heaven for free loaders.
Not necessarily true. If Inferno was to start charging for using this site, then this place will become a way for him to EARN!! That being my reason to quit.

As I have stated earlier, I am all up for DONATIONS, if that's what it takes to keep the site running.

So better think before hinting at anything!

Dude, PG is a beloved platform. Maybe it will shut down for a few months, but there is always the possibility of getting it up and running again. Selling it would mean issues. Who's gonna buy PG back? Your PAPA?

Is it wrong if it becomes a venture for Inferno to earn through?

FIVE years he's kept this site up and free for everyone, no charge on anything.



By FREELOADERS I particularly mean people who are using this gaming forum just for the marketplace.

People who have no actual interest, input or opinion on gaming or any other general section, but rather they are here for the marketplace because its providing them an easy, free access to a large market.

Gawd! Are you freakin insane now? :S

I NEVER said that that's what he IS doing. Again, kindly read through all the crap above that post, and by all I mean all 10 pages. Before reaching a verdict and telling me I am at fault.

And i think you are too dumb to read the freakin IF in my post, the one you are quoting... So you are the fool here jumping to conclusions and making judgments without reading through anything!

Sorry for the outburst. It wasn't supposed to be intended at you, I was freaking out over something else.

I don't use this site for even marketplace all that much, you can get that idea by my TS. But the admin has clearly mentioned more than once that marketplace is here only to help the users, its not the main feature of this site.
More than anything it's a forum, who pays to visit a forum? C'mon, I am sure there are tons of people who would willingly donate on monthly basis. So why even make it a paid site?

Also if it's paid then there will be a fixed amount all will have to pay, with donations it can fluctuate on what a person feels comfortable with.

I hate to see this site go down ( then again it would probably help me study more, but that is my problem ), inferno has put his heart and soul into this site, and in no way, if i were in that position would i knowd whether to sell my hard work or see it closed, and honestly, i don't know which is worse.

I suggest inferno sell it off as a last minute option, but, then again, that is the solution to keep this platform alive solely tilted in the favour of the PUBLIC, and to be honest, the forum it is today, we don't know whether it will keep itself up if inferno sells it. I mean, have you seem how QUICKLY this announcement was made after inferno stepped down from adminship, but whatever decisoun he makes, i want EVERYONE to stand by his side, we all want this forum to keep going, so does inferno, but when the time comes, and inferno decides what to do with it, as a final act of thanks to the person who gave us this forum ( and kept it free ) i want him to know that we trust his decisoun and that he should have NO REGRET.

Just my two cents.

I'm saying restrict, put a fee on the marketplace.

NOT the users, not any other section.

Of course forums are supposed to be free territories and PG is one hell of a forum.



The Marketplace has more posts/threads than almost all the forum combined.

As much as I love the crowd here, I simply don't appreciate the "merchants" and "dealers" here that are just here for the market place.

The entire " oh shit I can't donate coz I'm poor" doesn't cut it. If you have money for mobile credit, pizza hut, junk food and buying games and hardware then you can pay up here as well.
I am not saying I am poor :p I am willing to donate. But the things you mentioned above, I barely pay for any...
Lappy was a gift a year back, Have only bought a ram in the past year, that's 1k.
I dont eat junk food or for that matter anything from outside... weak tummy...
Games/movies... Why buy em? IPT, BCG and BTN are there to solve the problem :)
And mobile credit is limited to Rs 350 per month :) 250 for internet and 100 for call/sms :p

But then again, you were talking about the majority, considering above mentioned expenses, i'd be in the minority.

Oh, that I completely agree with. But then some ppl might move on to olx... Unless PG can offer some guarantee of its own that the person is trustworthy. Or only the people with a high post count / high TS will stick to the market place.

Well you know i am not interested in buying the forum at all. It was just an advice for keeping the forum alive, it might be a better choice over extinguishing the forum. You must not waste your 5 years tough grind like this and i never knew some people are actually interested to buy PG for making money. You should not accede of acquisitive people like wajie. You should give PG in safe hand of peoples like shyber, no?
Hmm ,, This Hassan guy is absolutely right , maybe you should sell PG to some faithful person like whoever you know. But the admin seems sO angry and furious in selling PG . But its better than closing it. But whatever the admin does he should'nt CLOSE it ... !!! Not even for a single day...!!!

Wow do you have anything better to do other than personal attacks on anyone you see?? :)
You must have thought "His post count is high...how about I just comment according to that...Im soo damn cool " Right??
I dont want to wage a war...That post of mine was meant as a joke so take it lightly...
All of us here want to save this forum so just chill out and cooperate with everyone...

Yeah PG iss a beloved platform , but sometimes you have to make sacrifices for your beloved ones ...
And closing it doesn't solve the issue...
Thats why im telling , that if the admin sells PG to some faithfull member of PG ( moderators etc ) ,so then anyones PAPA can buy it back...:v:

It really doesn't matter, there's a huge difference between OLX and PG, we are not a classified site and we have our own niche market! Anyway I am keeping all things in my mind and whatever decision I made will be for keeping this platform a live and it's my first priority. Lastly, of course we can't make it a complete pay site, we are not insane! I will see how donation/support will go but yeah I will not only depend on the donations so there will be some changes too, if we meet the donation goal before 1st july, 2012 than PG will stay else don't keep any hope.

yes, that's what i meant. Admin is too sensitive about PG that's why i think he mistook my point but hey he should be 5 years are not less.

Remove the marketplace and PG will be running another 5 years without a problem ;)

[MENTION=43057]Umer Hanif[/MENTION]

Would you kindly go read the entire thread before stating your opinion.

INFERNO has clearly stated in simplest of words that PG IS NOT FOR SALE, Will not be sold, shall not be bargained for.

THE END.




Do NOT share any opinion, statement, argument, thought or idea that even remotely hints to selling, partnership or anything of sort related to PG.


If you're not going to part of the solution, at least show some respect for this platform.

Of course I am very sensitive about PG because you come here to reap the benefits (information, interactivity, marketplace etc) and I actually work my ass off for it. For you it's a online forum, but for me it's a project. Ab maaf karo aur app apni advice apnay pass hi rahko, if you have anything else to contribute than go on, otherwise don't bother yourself.
