    Most only need a day ($5) to download the data they want. If my time to gather all this isn’t worth 5 bucks, then it isn’t.


    Edit: it just got worse. It’s not the right time to provide this research

    I wonder why I did all the work

    Every once in awhile I have one of those moments that makes me question why the hell I ever did the Viper Registry. It seems that a $5 charge for a day to download data you would like is a bit excessive.

    Most can download a single vin list in 24 hours, some download everything they can see.

    I guess my only comment is. If this is too expensive, google is your friend. I know everyone has the skills to do the research and it’s free.

    This is for people who’s time is a valuable commodity and would like to contribute a little to research they didn’t have to do

    Oh, and again, the Viper Registry (not to be confused with the IVR) has no affiliation with any club, organization, site, company. The data here is based on my efforts and no other fees, dues, memberships etc is a free pass to the data collected there.

    You are dealing with this in entirely the wrong way Jeff. My question
    isnt about the data or the fees - its the time frame. You are (i assume)
    continuously updating the base data seeing as you are asking for out-
    side information from the public [me entering my VIN info for example.]
    If you are locking that data away and asking for money to access (which
    is perfectly acceptable) do you expect me to pay $5 every time i access
    the site to see if any new information is posted? If so, that seems a
    bit excessive, and $65 for two weeks is, frankly, flat out ridiculous -
    thats a $1690/yr membership if i want to check in every week. Also, as
    a member of your site i dont understand how it works - there is no
    clear understanding as to what my $5-65 gets me, or not at least that
    ive been able to find.

    If youre concerned with people mass-downloading your research, why
    not create a mass-file and charge $50 for it, or create a yearly membership
    for $65 (though id be more in at the $30 range) and a single or X-number
    of VINs for $5. You have a website that youre effectively stopping people
    from visiting more than once every couple of years.

    The other side of this is that once youve uploaded the info youre never
    going to add to it again (again, perfectly acceptable) - but if thats the
    case you have to expect people to mass-download to get as much value
    for their dollar as they can - thats just human nature.

    No one is criticizing your work, or your effort, just that this setup offers
    no real value to the average customer who, chances are, doesnt really
    care if they have the info or not. Its the raffle mentality all over again -
    do you can sell 1000tix for $100 or 150tix for $500? Im just trying to
    help you out man, theres a reason Carfax started failing when they
    began limiting searches.

    At this point, I don’t give a shit what people do or what they want.

    Best I can do is tell people to hang on to their money, nothing on that site is worth their time

    Entire section has been changed. It’s no longer a member section. Its an optional area where people (if so inclined) can do some additional research.

    For most, this will not be a place they will need to go as many people just need to know more about their individual Viper and I’ve always done that for free
