So is this mod free or not?

So, thats your problem, not the author of this mod.

If you want a free mod, try to ask google if he saw any around. (But i have my doubts about that)

Otherwise you can always writte your own mod.

If you are not able to writte that mod (due to dont have skills for that), maybe you can think twice and respect a bit more the hard work that other guys have to bring us such wonderfull option to our forum. Even if payed...

Just to trow my 2 cents on you, cause your action is really repugnant!

If he develope's it and gives it away for free, that would be great, but not smart. The small amount of users who actually would have a use for it, would build businesses with it. That would make development and support critical, with no monetary gain and most likely no real acclaim. Development time will be in the hundreds of hours and support will be in the thousands. It is not unreasonable to charge way more than the $75 that cyberalien is asking.
cyberalien is an extremely talented dev and designer, who has given more to the phpbb community (for free) than even some of the phpbb devs. It is completely realistic that he will still be here 5 years from now supporting his mod.
In short, if you cannot afford $75 - $150 for a script like this, then you cannot afford a server capable of handling it.

ps. Until youve actually given something back to the community, do not think you may trash those who have and not be scorned for it.
