* Switching to a Points Program for downloads, and then instead of 25 downloads/month it would be 25 download credits a month. Then those credits could be something people could earn via an affiliate program. For example, a point per referral or a point per social media share. Even possible to implement a maximum bonus points per month.
* A link to alert an admin when an update is needed or a download has an available update. REPORT button.
* More transparency when signing up that there is a monthly limit on free memberships.
* More highlight of the benefits of paid memberships, for example, daily download limits.
* Maybe a FORUM for paid members to legally share their own GPL or open licences items- or a member uploads area with no site guarantee. And then maybe even have a report link so if a file is not valid or nulled in some way, it can also be REPORTED (which could penalize the member.)
* Allowing Member submitted script modifications and tutorials. For example, via guest blogging or a forum for script mods.
* Joint licencing, where members could joint fund a request.
* A way to alert members in their account when a download they’ve downloaded has an update.
* Rollback versions of updated plugins (in case the update is buggy)
