This is an actual subscription? You have to be kidding me.

@andreasduess There is a free version anyone can use - and due to high demand we created a subscription service for people that need to be logged in at all times - currently this results in the site generating over 400,000 https requests to slack each day to help keep users logged in and online.

@andreasduess @wesleyhenshall You are not kidding? Somebody wants that much to lie about their presence? What is the difference from having just the app and it is logged in?
wesMaker@wesleyhenshall · Software Developer
@andreasduess @ipstas Yes I think there are a lot of remote workers using the app. a couple people tell me they make more money when appearing online all the time. --- I think you are asking whats difference bettween free vs paid? The free version prevents your status from changing to away, but does not keep you logged in if you log out or shut down your computer. The paid version does both and allows you to create schedules. Thanks for the question!

Why do you think it is needed in the first place? What problem are you trying to solve through this?
wesMaker@wesleyhenshall · Software Developer
@harish_geek Hello - the problem solves is having people look like they are online when they are not. A couple people have mentioned they are freelancers and they get more jobs if they appear online all the time - since people in their group reach out to them more. Its great for remote workers that want to appear available.
