Developer's Corner / Re: Choosing a CMS
« on: February 02, 2011, 01:50 AM »
if you want a portfolio website than wp is just perfect especially with a nice design, or maybe joomla
I thought you wanted to have a complex portal which is better to be made from scratch... for a better development and potential.

we can help you build your own custom cms from scratch depending on how complex you want it to be. could you please show some live example of similar sites or describe its structure briefly?

General Software Discussion / Re: The software awards scam
« on: January 17, 2011, 01:13 AM »
so, here's a list of software directories and my personal opinion about them :

1. Hotscripts.com

Very good and old web scripts and software repository site with a lot of paid promotional opportunities such as :

- being reviewed by one of their editors for $500 (example : http://www.hotscript...inout-search-engine/)
- promote your app in the subcategory or category listed for a price which differs from category to category (e.g php category is one of the most expensieve )
- other advertising options may be seen at : http://www.hotscript...m/pages/advertisers/
- you can get rated and gain a better exposure if you place their rating widgets on your web site or on the sites of your friends : http://www.hotscript...pages/getting-rated/


2. Download.Cnet.com

- download.com offers a variety of paid services to address your business needs. visit this url to see all of them : https://upload.cnet....2706-21_5-973-4.html
- I created a ticket to ask for a review and I didn't receive an answer from their support. I was curious about their rates. I also visited this page created on August 9 2009 : http://forums.cnet.c...2549_102-352970.html and visited that software page which asked to be reviewed and there's no review there : http://download.cnet...=forums06;msg3096241. Maybe the software didn't qualify or it was too expensive.


3. Softpedia.com

- definitely worth it being listed on this website. they review very useful software free of cost but I'm not sure how big is their queue of software to be reviewed and I also don't know how big is their team to handle them. You don't want your version 1.01 to be reviewed when you're ready to launch version 6.0 :)
- they award many software with these awards : http://www.softpedia.com/awards/ (they also used to have 100% Safe and Secure Award by Softpedia which is not listed on this page)
- developers can also advertise their product(s) : http://www.softpedia.com/advertise/


4. Brothersoft.com

They write software reviews and they also have a wide area of promotion opportunitied such as PPD - pay per download, featured listings and nice giveaway website at brothergiveaway for a better promotion of your software.


5. Soft32.com

- a very old website but it seems they write 1 or 2 reviews per month... so I bet you'd be number 1 000 000 000 in the queue (reviews page http://www.soft32.com/sl/64-1-5-0-1.html  :) )

6. Download.FamousWhy.com

- they (I mean "we" :) ) are a small team of people who try to write reviews, articles, tutorials, polls, frequently asked questions and we also take interviews to software publishers we consider as being famous (I already posted about what we do here : http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=23440.0).

examples :

- publisher profile page : http://download.famo...publisher/fineprint/
- software listing page with review : http://download.famouswhy.com/fineprint/
- article about Fineprint: http://articles.famo...anding_application_/
- polls: http://www.famouswhy...nload/fineprint.html
- questions: http://ask.famouswhy...Print_questions.html
- interviews:
http://download.famo...er/wot_services_ltd/
http://download.famo...com/publisher/iobit/

7. Filecluster.com

- this is a good website to submit your software to and they also write reviews (http://www.filecluster.com/reviews/) to the most useful software.

there are many others but I think these are more than enough for software submissions and reviews. if you know more it would be great if you could mention it(them) here to make the list bigger.

first name and last initial might be good.

this is a good idea, too!  :Thmbsup:

Congratulation, Tom. This is quite exciting! :-)

I need to say that it made me feel uneasy when I saw my name spelled out in full, next to an enlarged copy of my facebook picture. Will it be possible to change these features, or Should/Must/Can I cancel my account?


When a user registers to website using facebook, he is asked for permission to access to his/her data from facebook. You may remove the photo from your account at askapic with ease : Profile -> Edit Photos and you can also edit any information you want clicking on "Profile" in the header of the website, after logging in.

Your account may be though canceled/deleted at any time by an admin.

I was just thinking that displaying name instead of username is a much more friendlier way of listing the questions. We will modify the website to display usernames instead of names as soon as possible.

General Software Discussion / Re: The software awards scam
« on: January 10, 2011, 01:27 AM »
as Josh said above "They can't be all that bad!"... let's just not exaggerate. I'm sure there are few software websites with serious team of editors behind, who really offer some wonderful and helpful things besides the process of giving awards. all of us know how hard is to promote an application we produce and being tested and reviewed is very useful in the marketing and promotion process. So, if someone could distinguish and create a list of serious and useful software directories for promoting our scripts and applications... that would be great. in fact I'm sure I can make this list because I got to know all of them when I submitted our "famous questions cms"

Living Room / Re: WTH - software awards?
« on: January 09, 2011, 03:57 AM »
there are many software directories out there that simply award software products in a random manner. you can distinguish the ones who really offer something serious if they download, install, test and then write reviews or articles about the awarded software. Some of them do this for free while others are asking huge amount of money for writing a simple review. I was asked even $700 for a simple review/blog post of 350 words for our "famous questions cms"

Yeah I made an account. :) The place definitely needs OpenID though, and when I registered while posting it didn't refresh. So I ended up hitting Post a second time... which I think due to the use of Ajax made it look like it finally posted for the first time while in actuality it was a double-post that was hidden from me.

think about what happens on all the forums and in general any website where visitors must login to post something :

1. you land on a page from google or any other referral;
2. you read the topic and then you want to reply, you add the message or you're directed to a registration page;
3. you must login to your e-mail and confirm your account
3.1 if the e-mail comes in time and you're not playing football already
3.2 if the e-mail is coming to your inbox folder and didn't get rejected by spam filters
4. login to the website when clicking on the confirmation link
5. search the topic again using the annoying and too complex/advanced search form of the website
6. navigate through tens of other similar topics found till finding the desired topic that got your attention before step 1
7. think again what you wanted to post, if you still have the words in your mind
8. finally post and submit your idea(s)

so... the solution for posting ideas that we have at askpic.com is made of 2-3 clicks and even if you click twice the "submit" button, you're right... with the risk of being a little bit annoying for some advanced users, it is by far more efficient for any user because basically in the background are happening all the steps mentioned above. :)
