  1. How do I stop the constant notifications to upgrade to 2.0 on the 1.4 platform. I keep clicking don't check for this version again tick box, but it still keeps coming up. I don't want these constant popups nor do I want to upgrade.
  2. I'm also in favor of a lifetime option. All I want to do is sync files from computer A to B with other computers or people. I don't need any fancy bells or whistles attached or constant updates or upgrades. Just make a product that works and sell it as is. Charge for major upgrades and if people want it then give them that option. Seriously? how far can you take a basic syncing program? You're going to hit a plateau sooner rather than later. A program like this is not suitable for a subscription basis, especially $40. Adobe and Office, sure! They make products so that people can make a living off it. Syncing without server storage? ya, not so much.
  3. From what I was told version 1.4.111 will remain online and operational, just like the previous versions. For me, the unlimited folder option is really important for me, but the new features in 2.0 are not. Until I make money off of what I use BT for, or if I implement this in any business setting then I will consider a license. until then, 1.4.111 will work just fine for me. So at least this is a bit of good news that we are not forced to upgrade to 2.0. I just wish the the BT team would have made a clear and concise statement regarding our concerns and show a little bit of care and respect for this community. Many of us voiced our concerns and the only meaningless responses we get are from fellow holier than thou forum users. I would really like to hear a response or a statement from the BT Team. I think us testers/developers are owed at least that much for all the free help we have given to the team over the last year and a half.
  4. Do we at least have the option to stay on this build or will this be taken offline and all of us eventually be forced into 2.0? It would be very nice to have some of our questions answered.
  5. Ya just like the BT Team. They wanted all of us to help test and develop for them for free, then turn around and start charging us all for the free work we gave to them. It would be really nice if all of you actually took the time to read people's posts before spewing opinions and brushing people's concerns away like they were nothing. We said that we would pay, just not this amount, not like this. This goes to you too epounds. Copying and pasting a generic reply from a previous post does nothing for me and it really shows your level of commitment and respect to your community that's helped you out since the start.
  6. Exactlly. Not to mention the current bugs that still occur like the Out Of Sync error, or small changes to files that don't sync, or updated files getting replaced by the older files. I find that I frequently have to disconnect a folder, delete the .sync folder, and then reconnect the folder in order for it to start sycing again, or to start syncing properly. I have to repeat these steps across multiple computers. So I would have to pay in order to reconnect a folder to correct an error. Thanks but no thanks. If you read the above posts again, you will see exactly what our issues are. And again $40 is pretty steep just to sync a few folders. I'm a full-time University student. $40 to me is two weeks of food, or a full tank of gas, or 2/3's my entire internet bill. $40 Just to be able to sync more than 10 folders with data I store on my own servers is ludicrous. If this was a cloud service where they store our data on their servers than I can see this price justified. I don't even really care about the other added features. I just care about what was promised to us and the work that I've already put into my projects.
  7. I too agree with what everyone has said. A lot of us have devoted countless weeks or months to helping you all develop this app to where it is today. Myself, I have spent so long developing an IT server that runs directly on BTSync. I have about 15 people on this server that consists of close friends and family members (Most of which are seniors). I have developed programs for reading scripts that sync over BT, instant messaging programs, computer maintenance services, ext... I'm also a fulltime computer science student that lives off student loans and makes NO money off this server. I've spent countless hours learning the API, providing feed back, ext.. This 10 folder limit is total BS and will ruin everything I have spent so long working on. Many other people on here have also provided valuable feedback, testing, insight, and many other development assistance to this team, all of which was for free. Now you take everything that we have provided for you, then turned it around on us by making us pay, minus a 25% off deal. Seriously? Perhaps it is us that should be charging you for all the work and insight we all put in. This is the definition of betrayal and broken promises. I do not plan to upgrade anyone on my servers to 2.0. I'll be sticking with what we have now. If you ever take 1.4 offline, you will be robbing me and many others of many months of work. I don't mind paying a one time fee for myself to host my people and for some added benifits, but I will not be paying $40 annually to contiune doing what I'm doing now. You're not even storing our data on a Server (Cloud). It's just not justified, esspecially to the development team who has helped you guys get this app to where it is today. I seriously hope you guys reconsider. A 25% discount is absolutly not justified either. Without us, you would not be where you are today.
  8. So I have signed up for the API a few months ago and again today. Just wondering how long it may take to get approved or if my emails are making it though. Would you be able to help me with this? My email is Daniel.Taylor.C@gmail.com Thank you.
  9. Ah, My bad. I never explored this option yet. Thank you very much BitTorrent is truely the best app in my toolbox of programs! I'm very much looking forward to what the future holds in store! Cheers to the BitTorrent Team!
  10. Is there any status of when some other command line features will become available for the Windows version of BTSync? I would love the ability to perform scripting commands for adding folders and keys. Thank you.
