Inofficial ReactOS shop

I took the time to design the stuff on the store, so 50% of the profits go to ReactOS! After i get permission, if i do :), i will also add the CD on there.

I like the idea of the journal cover design.

What's this??

First off, did you ask anyone if you can do this?
Secondly, how does this let people donate money to ros. It seems more like donations to your pocket.

Whilst you have every right to do this, please don't push it as official ReactOS merchindise.

I agree. An initiative like this, whatever your motives are, shouldn't come from some random person...

I personally like it. As long as the bigger part of the money lands here and not in his pocket. He supports us with the merchandising IMO.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Yes it is indeed a good idea, but I'm rather concerned that there's absolutely no control over it..

Thank you, but first of all, we have a more-or-less official registered store there with a name "reactos", second, neither me nor other developers requested a help in this. It's just waiting for its moment to come, and is scheduled for advertising on the website.
Third, I'm not going into XX% of profit negotiations, because I heard your nick only once mentioned in irc, so it's not going to become official.

Feel free to help promote ReactOS, but for now your intentions look like if you just copied reactos store under a different and similar name, and are trying to market it already as a way to support developers, and not having contacted neither me nor any single developer.

And since this seems to irritate our developers, I'd like some explanations.

I have actually had this store for a long time, and yes it has been approved, and all the profits will go to ReactOS, maybe out on every $20, I take $2 for the effort and design, but the rest goes to reactos! AlsoI got the CD approved before, but i'm not susre if that is still ok, so... anybody?

Approved by who?
Obviously not by Fireball.

I'm personally don't like many of these designs.

well... I don't quite like it... but anyways...

he's talking about like a year ago when someone (don't remember who) told him he could do it if the money went to ReactOS... but taking that as "approval" is stretching it a lot
