السلام عليكم, this morning in discussions with Dan Milward (Lead Developer of WP e-Commerce) I raised the hot topic of a paid-forum to deliver timely responses from the Instinct team and community developers to time-critical development questions; the original topic being created by Douglas on Why Don’t You Guys Change This to a Paid Forum? which customers, community developers and myself commented on.
Out of the conversion I gleaned the following nuggets worth posting to the WP e-Commerce community:
yeah we’re planning the premium forum […] we’ve put a lot of thought into it
…so the premium forum will be available shortly!
Operating on the popular token currency system whereby customers purchase credits via credit card, direct debit or PayPal balance – to create support Topics which will notify premium forum moderators and invite their participation. All premium topics once resolved will be moved to another thread that all users can see and benefit from.
Here’s the cool part, WP e-Commerce users running the free release will also be able to get involved. You know as much as I do, I’ll update as soon as I know more, مع السلامة
