    Well, I was advised by Zen19 to start this shit thread.

    As most of you know, ExtremePHP Wiki Poster's salesthread was bombarded with complaints due to lack of updates and such.
    His salesthread is here to whoever is interested to read up:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...r-ultimate-wiki-posting-tool-tool-addons.html

    You can see his repeated delay of updates which frustrated his existing customers.
    If you read other Blackhat forums, his attitude was the same and some said his developer (or just perhaps him) was arrogant in his response and attitude. Several members have tried to email him directly but it was bounced back. When got questioned in forums, he denied receiving any emails.

    Finally, after months of waiting, he released his update.
    Now here's the terrible part: it is WAY more slower and it is filled with bugs.

    When everyone brought the matter up, he just said he will look into it and stopped replying to his salesthread.
    Worststill, before mods lock up his salesthread (it was unlocked just yesterday to further up investigations), he has stopped logging in to BHW till this day.


    P.S:
    What's worst is his pricing... although I know this isn't a reason to shitlist him and it is pointless, but just look at the nonsensical pricing plan.
    BASIC - $99
    Premium - $249

    And for that kind of price, I rather just buy other wiki blaster softwares which is way much cheaper than $99, and includes all the features that is included in Premium.

    Sad to say, I bought the Premium from him, but at a lower price. I Skyped him and he told me he will sell it to me for $200.
    But because he was from India, he doesn't have a Paypal account. He told me to send about $147 to another BHW member's paypal account here (which he claims that he is helping him with this money transfer). I asked why is it just ~$147? He told me that the other remaining ($50+) will be compensated when he wants to buy something online and I have to pay for him for that amount.
    I asked why don't I just send him the full $200 because I never like owing people. He simply said, "No."
    So I agreed during that time because of the perceived power of the software.

    Of course, a few days later, I realize it was WAY more expensive than I thought to buy and ship something to India.
    Just a $10 item will cost $50+ when you have to pay shipping. So I got back to Skype and told him about it to reach a mutual agreement. I told him that I can simply just pay the $50+ to that guy's paypal whom will pay him later. He again said, "No."
    So I was like "Ah fuck it" and didn't log back to Skype for sometime.

    Unfortunately, my Windows crashed and I needed to reformat. Thereby, I lost the convo log and didn't install Skype since I hardly use it. He somehow forgot about it... lol

    But the main point is... it is quite surprising to see such a disgusting attitude from a Jr. Executive member in his salesthread.
    Not to mention he didn't login for a suuuuuuuuuper long time.

    ExtremePHP has been pm'd and will be banned in 24 hours unless he responds. He has had more than enough chances.

    Well since your from singapore and he is from india and you used paypal. No adherence to regulations: The PayPal payment service is regarded as a stored value facility under Singapore law. The Holder of the PayPal stored value facility, does not require the approval of the Monetary Authority of Singapore. I grabed that from "paypal debacle 15 lessons learnt" I mean thing is the whole scenario of have you transfer 147 to another paypal account seemed like he was trying to grab as much money as he could before dipping out.

    Thx OP!

    When dealing with Extremephp, I found him to be horrible and cheap.

    I wanted to transfer the app to another vps so I emailed him for a license reset, he asked me to send him $10 via paypal. I figure whatever, its just 10 bucks.

    The guy doesn't get back to me for over two weeks with a new license file. What a douchebag, thank god its just a wiki submitter. There are way better ones out there in the market right now.

    Indians can use paypal with no problem. Only limitation is that Indians can't send money through paypal within India. Indians can receive money from other countries though.

    The ironic thing is, I actually think Extreme Wiki Poster was one of the best posters out there - it had a couple of bugs but it was by far the best and was a piece of software I was looking forward to seeing evolve.

    If he was on a money grab before disappearing that seems stupid when there was a much bigger stack of cash on the table for him by continuing on with the software.

    Yeap, a $99 software should have updates. I had a problem re-installing the software, I was getting a license registration error and I emailed ExtremePHP about it, he didn't even bother to reply.

    Totally agree with you bro, EWP was the best wikiposter when it came out and should have evolved to keep that position forever and made bucketload of money. I was using it, of course the cracked version.... :p

    I'm sorry to hear that. Building customer relationships is always more profitable (in the end) that hit & run policy :).

    And he's this famous? This guy would have been the best and certainly, the dolls would have be rolling in, but ha, it's gone, too bad to see such talents put to waste.

    It was a great tool when it came out. But then a lot of users started to use it, mediawiki rolled out couple of updates the success rate with EWP went down big time.

    I use Wiki Bomber and it is hands down the best wiki tool I've tried.

    it used to be a good posted, but i never been able to post to anything besides mediawiki (although promised to be able to post on macos), getting a reply from him was pretty much impossible, "luckily" i only bought the basic version..

    I have to agree ....im kinda sorry he trew away such an amazin software. I think it was and might be the best in the wiki industry.

    Even tho i am useing others now i would really like a comeback from his part considering he would really improve it and not give it more bugs.
