Personally, I have no idea what the top guys are doing? If you remove the counter, people won't know if they should buy it or not. Why would people buy a software if the bonus is up already? 1K or 3K?

I bought MH2 bundle for support since I only used two programs from it so far (one gave it to a teacher who is in Multimedia).

I was planning to get this Parallels for fun but since it doesn't show how many it makes me not want to buy it since I won't get a bonus. It just pisses people off if it says 3K and to waste 50 or 40 bucks (if you count discount) and you can't get the 1K or 3K bonus.

Very bad move.

Well, for me I was on Vacation and just got back and read my email but I guess its too late.

I don't really care about the wait, since its great for offering incentives to buy it fast

But come on show the COUNTER so if its past the limit people won't be regretting it because they just missed the bonus by a few buyers and they buy it for the bonus.

I have a problem throwing my money out there for mystery apps or the chance that I might get something great.

Mystery apps to be unveiled later in the sale annoy me to know end, but I understand the business aspect of it.

What really gets me though is what the OP mentioned: the lack of a counter.  If I think I'm dropping $50 for three apps and end up with one, I'll be thoroughly disappointed and would likely be dissuaded from ever participating, as a customer, in a sale like that ever again.  Leaving that up to speculation seems shady and low and is a big reason why I'm not buying this bundle (that and I'm not particularly intrigued by the apps.  Nothing can please all of the people all of the time and I'm ok with that).

Give a man fire, he'll be warm for a day.  Set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

This is my first time in the forum so I'm not sure this is right, but hopefully it will help.  If
you add headline to the end of the homepage url , (I can't post links as a forum noob) there is a counter up top.

In case it gets removed, as of 1am it specifically says 2,549 bundles sold, $27,060 raised for charity, 0 days 22 hours remaining.

Counter is there now, I doubt Phill will have it removed so close to the end of the sale.

I'll post a thread here as soon as we hit 3000 for you guys. And in case you were wondering, the counter will be back for MacHeist 3.
