Start at 28 minutes in to minute 47 of Nate describing new features and then 3 minutes up to minute 50 of why they want more money to pay for more development teams.
So since Nate asked in the podcast today (#346 at ~47 mins in) about trying to get more money to develop newer features. I am grandfathered in so don’t really want to pay more so a bit biased but do want more functionality. While there are features I wish you would implement so I’ll never not complain… I do like the functionality and direction TR is going.
Anyway, my thought was many people don’t train year-round (I assume most are like me, cause biased) but would rather pay annually and know that I’m saving money long term even if I’m not using TR cause to drop my subscription means I know it will get much more expensive. But if I look back at my actual usage of TR I’d probably save money if I paid month to month and only pay when I’m actually using it.
I’m perfectly happy paying $5 more to help spur an increase in development.
So to use real (still made up) numbers, person A is grandfathered in at $149 and person B is grandfathered in at $159 with the current rate being $189. They can pick to keep Classic TR and be locked into the current function set at their current rate or agree to pay $5 more to stay current. So A will pay $154 and B will pay $164 to stay current. But say 2 years from now the price goes up to $199 they will then pay $20 over their grandfathered rate.
This would imply all new subscribers wouldn’t gain access to the classic version so have no chance to get grandfathered in as their rate will always increase so maybe include it so you don’t pay any increase for the first 2-3 years?
