I have purchased amember. The reason I bought it is because it's the most popular one and the most supported one, however, it's a bit outdated, and the feeling you get from using it, is that it's a 2001 piece of software. I don't know about the code, how good it is written, however, just from looking at the admin panel I can say it's pretty terrible and clearly do not reflect 2010 standards. I will not be surprised if you get new competition coming up [cut][/cut] Membership script isn't something that complex, and yet we paid $200+ for something that isn't that right - probably because of lake of motivation and no competition in your area. In the admin panel there is no sorting options, no ajax options, nothing that can clearly say that this is an up to date piece of software with a good care. Sure, we might be able to re-design the admin panel, but will that give us the new rebust technology as in 2011 standards, and why this is our duty to do that, while it clearly should be yours.
