Default I have a great crazy idea " installers insurance"

sponsored links
Folks an idea come to mine. Instead of playing a waiting game on the biggest risk taker to report on success or failure of a chip, we can have an installer insurance. In this way we can keep up with the latest technology quickly and indemnify the risk taker against any personnal losses.

This is how I propose it could work:

Lets say the new dms3 comes out and a forum member agrees to test this chip which cost $100 total. If 50 persons agree then each participant would contribute $2 each to protect.

Lets look at another example, say a cheap clone Messiah chip is on the market but we are not sure about the integrity of this chip or the supplier. We can do the same as in the example above

The tester will then report back to the group (forum) and then the members can move forward on their own or even order in quantity to get a better price.

Let the disscussion begin !!

it's the same thing if a seller starts to sell a game that 3 days after it's first release is's bad luck for both parties (both seller/ of course there's a major differnece between a $50 chip and a $2 disc...but it's the same principal) the buyer/seller have to work it out from themselves....(i'd personaly give em a free copy of the new workin one), but since a modchip etc is much more expensive, i'd say a compromise should be the installer,installs the chip for free, or vise versa, or something (but you'll find in most cases, crappy chips that have major problems release "clips" to fix any problem....which can just be mounted on the other chip

This is a technical support forum, you're proposing some sort of buying syndicate which is well outside the bounds of this forum.
