I think there is a place for paid scripts here, if it can motivate more quality scripts being made and published.
I don’t usually buy scripts but when I recently did it got me thinking. I complained about the quality and got the response that the script was an interpretation and not supposed to be in sync. Disappointing to me - this wasn’t what I was looking for.
I think finding scripts is a problem in general, I don’t want to wade through hundreds of scripts to find something I like. But I don’t think free scripts need the same requirements, I can always just check it out and delete. Paid scripts are harder to grab but primarily I don’t want someone to make money off something I don’t like.
Can we somehow encourage more transparency when it comes to paid scripts? Should maybe information like script style, target device and script method be required when posting a paid script?
Most paid scripts are quite fine IMO. That said, there are some paid scripters whose work I do not like or they’re charging higher than market rate. For those, I simply remember their names and don’t purchase their work. All in all, it’s a modest expense but as in all things, caveat emptor. Maybe check out their work before they started selling paid scripts to see if you like their stuff?
The way I look at it is the same as hiring someone on Fiver (a site that you can pay people to make stuff for you like logos, websites, art etc). They have a portfolio of things I can view and see their work and then I make the decision based on that to hire them.
It’s the same with scripts imo, if a scripter doesn’t have free scripts that I can try to see their style/quality I just ignore their paid scripts. If I look at their free scripts and decide I like them, but then I buy a script and I don’t like it, that’s on me.
I’ve said it in a different post but I’ll repeat it here. I don’t think it should be allowed for people to only post paid scripts, this site shouldn’t be used as a store front. I’m not against having paid scripts posted on here but I don’t think it should be the whole purpose of someone being here.
For every scripted video u can find a heatmap + sample script in my post. Scripted JOI videos are harder to check if the quality hits your taste, the most time a sample script don’t make sense here. I post the targeted Device (TheHandy) and the style (frame-by-frame).
I follow the discussion maybe I can make customers feel more safe with your ideas.
Hi Kinetics, I think this is a good subject.
For my scripting style its more like an interpretation and I think that it will always be for every scripter Because we try to let it feel real or adjust to what is wanted.
Some like a simple style up - down, some like to follow to speedmotion up down wich means more points along the way
Some like a detailed style
Some like a little bit crazy style
Some like a smooth no big amplitude style
Some like a vibro style
In reality the pussy is never going to vibrate
At Gumroad there is an option to rate the script. I’ve got a lot of buyers that frequently come back so I guess a lot like my scripting style.
Sure. But I think this community could do better and put some more requirements on paid scripts. Do you see any downsides? Would it discourage a lot of scripters? I think charging for scripts in this (originally free) community is a privilige and some more requirements on paid scripts wouldn’t be strange to me.
Requiring a short representative “taste” sounds great to me. Easy to accomplish with OFS/JFS/whatever and not subjective (like script style).
I think this is harder to require, not super easy to accomplish. Need software and video hosting.
Eroscripts supports webm embedding. I’ve been doing this in all my posts lately, check them out if you like. But yes, it is a bit complicated and I don’t feel very motivated to do that for all my free scripts. Not something you want to enforce everyone to do.
