When it comes to download limits, it has been a long and winding road for us here at MediaLoot.
We started off with unlimited downloads. This didn’t work well (or last long) because people were paying one monthly fee and downloading everything on the site. We couldn’t pay our designers, long-term members were getting shorted, and well… you get the idea.
Following that we launched the multi-plan system we have now with download credits and a set number of downloads you could have each month. This has worked fairly well with one exception: members who didn’t use all of their downloads in one month (which were many) lost those downloads and couldn’t use them again next month. In effect, members were penalized for not using all of their downloads, even if they didn’t need them that month. That’s not what we want to happen…
Now, thanks to your suggestions, we have a big announcement to make: Rollover downloads are here.
Introducing Rollover Downloads
Effective immediately—all download credits will carry over to the next month for as long as you are an active member. You paid for those downloads, and now you get to keep them. Full details are as follows:
Basically, rollover downloads work exactly as you would expect (similar to many wireless carriers and other services). For those who are interested, here are the gritty details:
- Rollover downloads apply to all MONTHLY premium members. Starting now.
- At the end of each month, any remaining downloads will be added to your next month total. If you’re on the 15 download/mo plan, you’ll just get another 15 added to whatever you have now.
- These download credits will last for as long as you are a paying member. If you cancel your subscription (why would you do that?) you will lose any rollover credits you have remaining.
- None of this applies to free accounts, free downloads, or yearly members.
...And that’s basically it. If we find any other details we need to add we will update this post and let everyone know.
If you have any questions about this please feel free to ask us in the comments below or contact us via email or our contact form. We’re releasing this as a benefit for you, our loyal subscribers, so if you’re not feeling the benefit just let us know and we’ll work it out.
And, as always, thank you for being a member. It’s all of you that keep us going and help make this site possible.
