Famous Software : We review your software for free
« on: July 16, 2010, 04:01:17 AM »
We're a small team of editors who like to download, install, test and then write the following things for the the most "famous" software which we consider useful for everyone:

- write reviews;

- create tutorials;

- create few polls;

- create few frequently asked questions;

- write articles;

- take interviews to software publishers.

If you want to recommend us the next software to start with please write the software by replying to this topic.

Our motto is :

"Making your software famous has never been easier!"

http://download.famouswhy.com

All the things above are FREE OF COST!

Just a few quick comments...

  • Fried Babelfish has two developers, not just one, Krishean and myself. We both have our own websites, we don't share one. If and when Fried Babelfish has its own home page, it will most likely be on my website and not Krishean's, although Krishean may post the code for his part of it on his site at some point (but not the entire application). I know this may complicate things, but sometimes that's what happens when developers become friends and work together.

  • At the bottom of the page where it says it is donationware, there is a link to find out what that means, but it leads to a page that doesn't mention donationware.

  • You are direct linking to the file attachments on the forum, and those links will change if we update the software, resulting in dead links on your site.

And from the description:
Quote
Fried Babelfish is a small desktop translator. It’s not perfect and the translated text can contain some errors (especially grammar) but this is a common thing. So far, there is no perfect translator (even the popular Google translator has its own flaws).

But Fried Babelfish is Google Translator, and it says that later on in the description.

Unlike an online translator, Fried Babelfish is way easier to use.

It is an online translator, just not in your browser. You can not use it offline.

Everything should be fine now. We have modified all the things you mentioned above. Please let us know if there are any more problems. Thank you very much for your kindness and for your cooperation.

Sorry to be such a pain, but you are still direct linking to forum attachments on the following:

Crush Linx http://download.famouswhy.com/crushlinx/
Crush Pad http://download.famouswhy.com/crushpad/
Dad's Around http://download.famo...hy.com/dad_s_around/

The problem is that the developers have no control over the URLs assigned to forum attachments and the forum software will automatically assign a different one if the attachment is changed. It's not like a regular website, where the developer can control the download link. So it's not a good idea to direct link to any forum attachments on this or any other forum. Just something to keep in mind for future reviews.

Please do accept our apologies for this issue. Everything should be ok now. We didn't think that editing the attachments in a topic will actually replace their ids as well.  :-[

No need to apologize. I didn't think you did this on purpose and it's not like you could have possibly been born with this info already in your head.  ;)

I just figured I would explain it so your site doesn't get messed up with dead links.

On the forum, you don't actually edit an attachment. You remove the old one and add a new one. Each attachment has its own ID, so the new one wouldn't have the same ID as the old.
