More Movable Type
This is a bit of a followup to my earlier entry on the new pricing scheme at MT (which could have be subtitled “whiners begone”). Read Melissa’s post, she made it pretty understandable when she summarized up Mena’s followup post (which clarified a few things and even retroactively removed a thing or two from the EULA). I’m sure they lost some business, there were too many upset people yesterday.
- Highlights of the update
- Some of their choices were made due to results of a survey (which I failed to answer). If you combine two or three blogs into one (and they aren’t used sepratly) it only counts as one.
- The dual processor rule should not have been in the EULA.
- You are not required to upgrade to 3.0 and you only have to obey the liscence as to when you agreed to it.
- You can add individual author/logs to the personal license for $10.
- Old archived blogs don’t count.
Mena says: “Furthermore, it is not our intention to stiffle the creativity of our users. So, if you have a great weblog that uses 11 weblogs seamlessly to appear as one site or weblog, you should not be penalized.”
I feel bad, I bet Mena and Company lost some sleep yesterday (or maybe they keep a bar at the office).
