I've been following the development of this emulator on and off now for the past few years, and my interest has waxed and waned in it; almost in line with the authors time!

Now, don't get me wrong, I realise that the real world comes into everyone's life, and usually when you least want/need it. My problem is this


Free iPod Free Flatscreen (seriously, my flatscreen was already shipped!)


at the top of the page! Does it not strike you all as a bit cheeky? Jeez, talk about a pyramid scheme. Personally, I think it's taking advantage of the people who follow the site avidly and try to help, and some of whom may have donated to the project.

Am I alone in this?

Well, isn't that what regular ads are for?

I doubt they're paying him to post those links; it's purely so he can get the names together for his flat screen, or an iPod.

It just seems to be an abuse of the support people have given him; "taking it for all it's worth", if you see what I mean?

Any of you ever visit Bluesnews? Blue has regular ads, and could probably get a list of names in no time at all, but it's inappropriate.

It's right up there with "Hey, help me get rich!"

I edited my post ... I thought you were talking about ads, but now that ive seen his site I know what you mean :p

Still you are free to click on them if you wish or not, like I said. it's definately not hurting anyone. It is his site as well. It may look a bit selfish or like a pyramid scheme, but hey look at it like this: Clicking the links is basically like donating, only to Caustik himself and not the project :laugh: Yea, okay it is quite different, but no one's forcing you to click them. ;)

The hell's wrong with that? It's completely optional and if people willingly click his link and complete and offer for him, I don't see a problem with it. Perhaps, if he said "help me get a free ipod/flatscreen or else I'll stop development of CXBX," you'd have a right to *****, but he didn't.

So in short, please don't yell at caustik in a public post like this, try sending him an e-mail or a pm (if he accepts them).

Dont know why Flare didnt close this. its a useless comment. Caustik is free to put whatever he wants on his website. dont click if you dont like those kinds of links.

also blueshogun, i wouldnt suggest someone to PM or email an author for something like this.... only important stuff should be sent
