Not sure what is happening lately but a subsequant amount of, especially crochet, patterns seem to be peaking at 200 GC! it is so disappointing to see the amounts listed get out of control for the sake of making a few extra GC. Kinda pricey for a number of members and more importandly not really in the spirit of sharing but more like selling.
Thank you for posting the patterns, that is very kind of you (wish more members would do the same and not the free stuff) but please, have a heart and charge a more reasonable amount for patterns so more members can indulge in the sharing spirit on this forum.
I totally agree with you! I don't crochet but it's the same in the cross stitch section - people are asking for huge amounts of coins and at times for quite small patterns. Not in the spirit of the site at all and just plain greedy!
I completely agree. When you think about it, if you charge less, you will probably earn more GC in the end....just saying. I can understand a high GC on a cross stitch program but certainly not for a pattern....a HAED pattern for example with a high GC, costs just as much to print after being downloaded as to buy it. The same goes for too many pages of knitting or crochet patterns.
Yes the spirit of sharing is certainly being broken and that makes me very
Yes, quantity downloads over higher price will probably results in more GC. That's a pretty high price IMHO, since you pay for the pattern and then pay for the download on top of it. I think a reasonable price is 50 GC for a good pattern, especially since you can get 50 GC for logging in each day, it makes it doable even for those who are relatively new.
I totally agree with you! I wish they would finally put a limit on how much one can charge for a share and that moderators (and some members) would stop encouraging people to put high prices on patterns, by giving them even more gc or sticking those posts for weeks....
I miss the days, when I shared patterns on picasa.... that was the spirit.
I think there's a limit to how much you can charge for a free pattern - it's usually 10 coins or something like that but this person has restricted those who can download it too - not at all in the spirit of the site!
