    So for those who want to:
    a) steal other people's ideas
    b) clone other people's websites
    c) copy another website's content
    d) blatantly "ask for help" just to plug your website
    d) overall, put up a website JUST for google ad clicks
    ..you need to :gtfo:.

    This forum is for those who want help programming, designing, publishing, and getting feedback on their websites. If you're one of these people who actually wants to put work into your project, and not have it done for you/handed to you, you're welcome here.

    The rest of you, piss off.

    This has been a public service announcement brought to you in part by, the people of the WML that care.

    im all for the quick dollar, however, i also don't think that thats a long term goal of anyone (almost anyone) here. I think sometimes the quick dollar is needed to build up the long dollar (cover expenses, etc)


    i agree with all the things mentioned, but i dont see why there cant be a discussion, rather that simple flaming about those other ideas. I mean, seriously, i know you guys dont do a lot of the black hat stuff. but it never hurts to just simply discuss it.

    and theres nothing wrong with stealing an idea, so long as you IMPROVE the idea. if you dont add anything to it, your just being worthless.

    but yea, asking for help to get clicks is not something anyone should do.

    Well over the past couple weeks I've seen a little of each thing I mentioned. I'd just hate to see this forum become exactly as I mentioned.

    For the most part, there is good info here. I just want to see that continue, and not be replaced by adsense click requests. :greddy:

    a) internet is based on copy pasting ideas. And just fyi your super duper social network for midgets planning world domination by pretending to be elves and getting general's kids to give you the password to the fish tank full of sharks with lasers on their head is not that unique. Seriously though every single website is a copy of something before it, and if your only competitive advantage is your 1 new feature that you stole from another site you shouldn't hope that much to succeed

    And chances are..your unique idea has been done already 20 times.(fyi not seeing your idea on first page of google results is not due diligence)

    b) Cloning is part of the game. With all these freelance sites you can get a copy for pennies on the dollar. Hell chances are your unique idea already has a script that someone is selling for $29.99. Unless you plan to do something truly unique, nothing wrong with cloning...who knows you might be better at it by using the template than someone who is running their site full time:rofl:

    c) Thats a problem true, but if you don't want your content copied, you shouldn't have published it on the internet. + if your site is affected by someone else copying your content then you should rethink your marekting strategy.

    d) some people need help, at least they are asking. And whats wrong with getting a few extra eye balls, not like that'll affect your stats that much.

    d #2) if I wanted google adclicks I'd put up my website on some soccermom forum, not a webmaster forum. Honestly who here has ever clicked an ad? Hell I just upgraded my firefox and adblock didn't come out with an update yet...and its shocking how many ads there are all over the websites.

    pretty sure thats pretty much = to D which you were bitching about.


    Whats ironic is that you bitch and moan about all that stuff, when the moderator of this forum(thomor) is pretty much guilty of most of those. :rofl:

    while i do agree with most of those points... they are all true'ish, but not in here. On OT, we are trying to help one another, NOT fuck over each other. OT has always had this silent code and nothing has changed.

    Anyway, most of the l33t people in this sub-forum already communicate by means other than posting in here. They aren't dumb enough to post fresh ideas in here anyway.
