    I am going to be making some small changes by the end of the year. Most notably I plan on adding a limit to the number of computers you can run the bots on. It will go as follows:

    VIP - 5 Computers
    Supporter - 2 Computers
    Free - 1 Computer

    I will also add upgrade packages for a monthly subscription or a 1 time payment.

    +2 Computers - $3 a month/ or $30
    +5 Computers - $5 a month/ or $50

    I will also be lowering the Captcha Credits VIP members get to just 500 a month.

    This wont go into affect right away but will happen by the end of December at the latest. Just giving you guys a heads up :)

    I also plan on updating Gifthulk to be usable, changing Earnhoney a bit, and possibly more! Swag will continue to get some updates but the focus will switch to making the other bots more usable for now.

    - Happy Botting

    Great! I think it will help you have more motivation to help you work hard and improve your bots better more in the future.

    The main reason I did this is to stop possible account sharing. I don't see a normal user using more than 5 computers. Most people probably don't use more than 2 but if you want to just be supporter you could just buy the +5 computers for $50 and continue paying a low monthly payment for supporter :)

    will it be per bot instance, per PC or how is it going to work? Does 1 bot = 1 PC?

    Not going to lie I really dislike this change as it is going to affect me a lot and also as one of the main bots has been stripped of updates on the site. So we are now down 1 major bot, that earned the most, and will be paying a whole lot more money for a whole lot less.

    It will be per PC and the other bot your talking about can still be ran without any limits because it can not be updated but as it stands that bot still works :)

    it works now, but will it realistically work 2-3 months from now? I doubt it. Either way this is really going to screw over VPS users and proxies as the monthly costs will greatly outweigh the amount the bot even earns these days

    That's one reason why I am trying to get gifthulk to stop banning ASAP. I don't see it really screwing anyone over if you just pay the one time fee then it removes the monthly fee. Also as a year sub your monthly fee isn't very high. I will do what I can to try and offer more bots to be ran and more updates before this takes place though to mitigate any possible loss in profit a user might have.

    But I have a question, example currently I'm using 17 VPS with 1 VIP account. And in the next update, 1 VIP account can just use max in 5 Computers (5 VPS), right? If I need to use VIP for 17 VPS, it means I need to have 4 VIP accounts. Do you have any optional to pay the VIP for each VPS I will use? I dont understand this issue

    Like I said you start with 5 but you can buy plans to increase this limit for a small amount so like..
    +5 Computers - $5 a month/ or $50

    so VIP = 5 then this = 5 so you'd have a total of 10

    I might offer a plan for +10 and +20 too for lets say $8/month or $80 one time payment and $15/month or $150 one time payment

    Oh, I understand. So, if I want to use VIP for 50 VPS or 100 VPS, I will need to buy 20x2 + 10 computers or 20x5 computers, right? Do you mean "as long as I can pay the fees, you will support unlimit computers"?
    Can I suggest any offer for bulk buy, example 50 computers or 100 computers ( just a question for the future, because I still need to test the bot work with me in a long time or not)

    Yeah you already took a major hit to your user bases profitability.
    You should poll this. I can only think of 1-2 users on here that would fall into this category. Most of us are here for the ability to expand our bot base and make some money. Major bot was lost and many of the other struggle to work or make it to redemption. I have 7 computers plus some VPS. I'm not trying to be greedy but we took a big hit already so this isn't a very welcome Christmas announcement especially since the botting off season is just around the corner.

    the reason people are botting multiple computers is because the bots are earning so little now, i bet my earnings are split in half this year and i doubled my accounts.

    Yeah nowhere near as good as earnings from this site as this time last year but the cost to do business keep rising. Eventually it won't even be profitable enough to run anymore. VPS cost, Proxy cost, Membership cost, SMS verify cost and now additional computer cost. lots of expenses for $1 - $2 a day in profits.

    i for sure oppose this change.
    But i also don't have an answer to stop the sharing of licenses.

    I know a lot of people will be upset and I might lose some business but I can't think of any other solutions. I might give a +10 Computer license to users that are members before the change.

    To be honest, A lot of users here are sharing the same sub to lower the cost. Even with 5 PCs they will keep sharing it

    in my opinion, just SS Binger can make profit but binger not support now. i agree with your update but should focus other bot can make more profit like binger

    sorry thats just not true, every bot makes a profit but those bots get the most attention. Gifthulk used to make the most but since they redesigned their site it isnt as good but I will look into a fix for that.

    That's what I assumed. I know a lot of people will be upset over this but honestly I can't allow that to happen forever because it will cause methods to be patched if too many people are using it. It is a necessary evil.
