Heya M9ers! byebye.gif

After a ton of very hard work, we’re thrilled to be able to share the all new premium features & mobile9 credits with you. wow.gif



What is it?
Premium features are paid features that members can purchase to improve their experience on M9. We launched three today - gifts, family filter, and autofollow.

How to get premium features?
By unlocking them with mobile9 credits. Just like tokens at an arcade or amusement park, you can buy mobile9 credits using PayPal (PayPal also supports credit card payment) and then use it to get interesting premium features. We will support more payment methods shortly.

What happen to free stuff?
We will continue to support and release exciting free features (more big ones to come!!). This won't change. What you will be seeing is advanced features on top of those awesome free ones. People can then purchase what they need with small amount of $.

Why premium?
Because we want to be able to build better M9 for you. We work very hard every day but with limited resources (budget, people, time), we can only do this much. We want to do more. And that's why we need your support. Instead of asking you for donation, or selling you a pro account that includes a bunch of features that you never used, we let you choose what you want & pay a small amount of money for it.

For example, we know you love special gifts. Whenever we release Valentine/Christmas packs you guys talk about it all day, send it to friends you care and make their day. But we can't do this often because someone needs to design all the gifts, get it online etc. A lot of work. We don't have enough resources to do that. With premium, if M9ers love those gifts & purchase them we can then use the money to create more lovely gifts for you.

What else I get?
Buying mobile9 credits is a vote of love and a vote of support. We really appreciate that & that's why we award people a badge for it. It's called Power Plus and this is how it looks like.

We hope you like it. Let us know what you think and enjoy!

I think having to pay to unlock the family filter is a mistake. People will just go elsewhere and get the same kind of content for free.

Your concern is definitely valid. We will look at the feedback and see what's next. We made family-filter a premium features because sexy content bring extra heavy work for the team. We have to screen & filter them off for the benefit of our larger family-friendly audience.

Yo, it's good that you all are trying to bring in more revenue to continue operations, but with every plan there are advantages and disadvantages. Even though PayPal isn't supported in my country either, I will continue to use M9. However, a lot of people may not feel the same, especially since in some countries the conversion rate for U.S dollars is high, and will tend to be expensive. I predict that a lot of frustrated users will request that their account be deleted and switch to another mobile content site to upload their content. On the other hand, a lot of users from the U.S and other countries will see this as a huge opportunity to expand on their use of M9. Good luck to the admins, and good job thumbsup.gif

It's ok Vanessa. Everyone can have their opinion on things. thumbsup.gif

If you take a look at M9 achievement system, it doesn't just reward people on performance. We also recognise people who took effort to understand & use M9 at the start (Newbie badge) and took up new initiative (Facebook Connect badge). So it's the same with Power Plus as I said in my first post - to recognise M9ers vote of love & support.

Very good points. Agree. And that's why we will continue to support & chunk out free awesome features. Premium will be a companion to free. That's how we see it. smile.gif

That's some excellent points there bro, you said everything I had in mind. Since we're both from the same country, your points apply to both of us. Since some of my uploads fall under the family filter category most of my uploads won't be seen. But, I'll still use M9. It's great, and it encourages creativity among users, so I appreciate all the hard work done by the admins. So, all I can do now is to create far less content that fall under the family filter category. it may be a set back, but that's fine. Still here to stay on M9 thumbsup.gif

I want to know something that a icon is near the profile name and the log out link and want to know that the amount will increase or not

Another question to you admin.team that if i upload a family filtered file if any one download it by unlocking it does i get money or every amount is for the site development
But still m9 is good site with many friends and more help from people who i don't know personally that it's awesome about mobile9

Good Opinion.... this Premium was too expensive depending on Rates

For me paying this amount just to unlock gifts/filters/autofollow is definitely NOT WORTHY...

Only m9ers whose high hunger for pts or Fake m9ers befriending with admins to gain something were willing to pay...BTW theres a huge diff bet DONATIONS & PAYMENT

I may not be an admin ultimateanand, but what I can tell you is that the icon that you see next to your username and the log off button is the credits icon. I'm sure yours says 0 at the moment, that is because you haven't bought any credits yet. When you click on it, it takes you to the m9 credits page where you can select the amount of credits you would like to purchase. When you purchase credits, the amount next to the icon will change depending on the amount of credits you purchased. The more credits you purchase, the more features you will be able to unlock.

To answer your question pertaining to others who have unlocked family filter and are downloading your content, as far as I'm concerned, you do not receive any money from M9 as a result of others downloading your family filtered content. Hope this helped cool.gif

That's some very good points. I would say that most users don't really care about unlocking premium gifts, its even worse for the site visitors who don't even bother to make an account, cuz they really don't care about stuff like that. And the autofollow feature will mostly be desirable for those who are ''M9 Veterans'' and want to reach a larger audience.

Now, what I think is the determining factor of all this is having to unlock the family filter. It directly affects your ability to view and download content. You already have other gifts you can send, and you can ask users to follow you. But, if you have family filter content and users don't unlock family filter feature, they can't see or download a single thing.

I've already seen a lot of users who are against having to pay for the new premium features. Let's see how this all plays out, and whether or not the admins may have to reconsider and make changes. I highly doubt that will happen tho. Good luck to the admins cool.gif

May I know what type of rate would you consider as reasonable?

But, if you have family filter content and users don't unlock family filter feature, they can't see or download a single thing.

The principle is the same for all three.

Gifts: Lots of free ones, you can also choose to unlock premium ones.
Follow: You can get followers for free (by making friends, by uploading good files, by writing good comments, by joining competitions), you can also choose to unlock autofollow so you can get even more followers.
Family Filter: You can download files for free (like before), you can also choose to unlock family filter so that you can also download all sexy/violent files for free.

Yeah, I know you can still download stuff that doesn't fall under the family filter category. And even though I can't purchase credits, if I could, I would, I think the rates are reasonable and its a good way of showing true support to M9 cool.gif

Hi Can anyone help me actually i am not able to login with my email id its saying invalid id from past 10 to 12 days!!
How to retrive my account back?
ultimateanand
Another doubt if i upload a file but it is not a family filtered still i put it under the family filter category and uploaded that
does i can see and download the file uploaded by me

the next one is if some other user upload a file under family filter category if i ask that user to edit the file and then every one can see it free without paying premium so i think family filter idea is not a worthy but followers really count:)

Hmmm, it took me a while to figure out that you're talking about another account. Well have u tried signing in using your username instead?? Worse case scenario is that M9 has suspended your account, or your email or M9 account has been hacked and deleted. There is also the possibility that M9's database servers are having system errors.

I understand what you're trying to explain ultimateanand. But here's the thing; when you prepare to upload a file and while you're filling in the information about that file, like the name, folder, tags and stuff, there is an option called ''Family Safe''. When you select yes from this option I don't think you're actually placing the file under the family filter category.

What I think the Family Safe option is for, is to help the admins to identify what files the uploaders themselves think falls under the family filter category. This will make it easier for the admins to see which files the uploaders believe are not family safe, and the files that the uploaders think are family safe. However, the admins still put the files through a screening process to determine whether or not an uploader was right when they selected yes or no on the Family safe option when they uploaded the file.

To answer your second question about editing the file; like I said earlier, selecting yes or no from the Family safe option does not guarantee that the file will be placed under the family filter category, and you cannot change the option on Family safe when you edit the file. The family safe option is not even available.

Hope this helped cool.gif

You can always see files you uploaded, whether it's family filtered or not. And like Forrest mentioned above, you don't get to edit the family safe or not safe option.
