The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Credit card companies still make plenty of money directly off of freeloaders in transaction fees that retailers have to pay. They might prefer you pay your minimum for a while and rack up some interest, but there's a black number on their bottom line either way.

    It's a lot easier to miss the indirect contribution of freeloaders to a free to play game's bottom line. They maintain the game's activity level and ensure that the lower tier whales are never too far down the totem pole, but they do still contribute to the game's operating costs.

    And this is a big part of why I've always been a pretty loyal AMEX user. They charge the highest fees to retailers (which is why most of them dislike AMEX, and many don't take it). But their customer service also seems like they work for YOU rather than for the retailer. Maybe it's all a facade, but it's been pretty effective for me so far.
