Looks like they may not be done fiddling with the licenses for MT3 as Mena is asking folks to offer up their input on how you’re using your blogs and why the current licensing models don’t work for you.
I have a challenge for those who have taken the time to send a TrackBack to our previous posts about the new licensing scheme for Movable Type 3.0.
If free isn’t an issue for you and you’re willing to pay for a version of Movable Type (say the $69 version) and the blog/author limits won’t work for your current use, write a non-emotional post explaining how you’re using Movable Type and TrackBack this entry.
I left the TrackBacks on for all the other posts because we genuinely wanted to get all feedback, positive and negative. Now, I’m looking for rational, just the facts sort of posts with simple information. Please, no commentary, no cussing, no judgments.
Bad Example: I don’t want to pay for my weblogs and I don’t want limits and I don’t like Six Apart.
Good example: I’m running one group weblog that’s non-commercial for 13 of my friends on our softball team and my three children, husband and I also all have personal weblogs. That’s 6 weblogs and 19 authors total. The cost for this setup is a bit prohibitive for my personal hobby.
I’ve already gone into my problems with it in several other posts including a summary of my issues with the current licensing in this entry. Rather than list the issues all over again I thought I’d just link to them and ping Mena’s entry.
If you’re still sitting on the fence and are concerned about the new licensing models then here’s your chance to offer some feedback. Write up your issues in an entry on your blog and then ping Mena’s entry and they’ll take a look at it. Gotta give Six Apart credit for recognizing the situation and being willing to listen.
