Is it easy to replace a file that you are selling that needs to be modified due to a correction and/or other update?
I think I've screwed up every release. It's sometimes confusing to me what the right order of operations is to update files - do you remove the old files first and then add the new files? That's what I usually do, though sometimes I've forgotten and ended up with two files. Can't tell them apart so I remove them both and reads the right one... If you can screw something up, I will.
Speaking purely as a customer/consumer, while there are alternatives to the One Book Shelf sites (DriveThru RPG, RPGNow, Wargame Vault, etc.), they don't have anything like the breadth of material, and setting up a separate account every time for other sites to download at most a few items, or worse, with individual publishers, rapidly becomes very tedious, which leads to not purchasing.
If you want more advice on how the sites work for small publishers, I'd advise you to check through the relatively new DM's Guild part of OBS, www.dmsguild.com/ . There are huge numbers of small companies, mostly one person enterprises, who have suddenly appeared as if "overnight" with material to support, enhance and enlarge the 5th edition D&D rules, much in the way of hard-copy fanzines of old. A lot of these folks are very new to setting up documents for online downloading, and while it's clear there have been problems - often I think by people just not following the instructions correctly - it's also clear that OBS have provided a lot of help to enable such newcomers to flourish. Some of the documents are into their seventh or eighth incarnations, so it does seem to be fairly straightforward to replace files, certainly.
I forget which piece it was, but I ordered something from one of the OBS sites, and within a couple hours of reading here that a revised model was being submitted to OBS, I received an email from OBS that the revised file was available
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
www.paizo.com is an alternative, but I never tried it. Although it is a house organ in many ways, focused on Pathfinder related product, there are many products from other publisher. By example, you can find the old Worldworksgames product...
Cons... less choices, usually more pricey than OBS.
Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
