Do you love PimpFish? Consider helping us out with a small PayPal donation!
PimpFish is now 100% Free software. So, any small amount you can donate will go a long way to cover our maintenance costs. Every year we pay for hosting, bandwidth, domains, code signing certificates, listing fees on download websites and much much more. So if you love PimpFish, please consider donating a small amount to the project. All donated funds will go towards regular maintenance costs and nothing else. You can donate as little as $1 - you get to choose the donate amount on the PayPal website. Please click the Donate button below to get started:
There are other ways of showing your support besides donating money...
Yes! Indeed there are many many ways you can contribute in your own little way to spread the PimpFish love to the rest of the world. You don't _have_ to donate money to the project (although that is the most direct way to help us out) but rather you can help us promote, or make PimpFish even better! :)
Support PimpFish by giving it a good review at download sites and tell other people about its awesome coolness!It is rare that people who like a software product take the time to go to a download site and give it a positive review. This is why you often get a very skewed insight into a software product by looking at its reviews. Because most often you get reviews from people who haven't taken the time to properly try out the software or misunderstood something and got frustrated. This is of course BAD and we try to be as user friendly as possible, but alas we live in a world where very few people actually read software documentation and try to learn more about all the features and how they work before they start using the product. So, in short: You can do a very cool thing if you like us and that is to rate our software.
The most important site to rate us is download.com, so if you can take out a few minutes of your time and rate us there, that would be awesome!
Click here to rate us at download.com!
Remember, we don't want you to go crazy and totally sugarcoat the thing. We want you to be honest. As a rule of thumb: The more exlamation marks you have in there, the less likely it is we will approve of the review (and the less likely it is other people will believe what you have to say...)
When you've made a good review you can send us the link by contacting us through our contact form and we will check it out...

So, if you know PHP and feel like helping us out with a little detective work, then you can help us Certify video websites which people are requesting. You do this by writing Video Downloader Plugins that run on our server and which tell PimpFish how to download video from the site in question. To get started, please take a look at our existing Video Downloader Plugins for some specs and sourcecode here:
Video Downloader Plugins Specifications
It can be surprisingly easy, and the applications are endless... We hope you'll find the time and inspiration to help us out!
Support PimpFish by serving your content by pimpfish-link or SLAPfile XMLDid you know that you can offer PimpFish links on your website which directly add a file to the PimpFish downloader if people click on them?
Well, we have one such link on our download page. It is very simple to construct these links, here's an example:
<A href="http://pimpfish-link/http://www.pimpfish.com/download/pimpfish.exe">Hi! I'm a PimpFish download link!</A>
You can also use SLAPfiles - Our open, free sharing XML standard - on your website to share content such as image or movie collections with other people!
Click here to read more about the SLAPfiles format
You can even combine the two so that when you've published a SLAPfile you can publish it in a pimpfish-link link to make it super-easy for other people to grab it :)
If you've started using these new technologies on your website, contact us and let us know - we'd appreciate it! :)
