    IMO this new 'feature' is useless especially for those of us that manage multiple sites. No disrespect Shawn but can you please use your time to fix the Webmaster Tools instead of wasting time on this crap?

    And for everyone that's going to bash/red rep me please keep your 9 to 5 job because you obviously will never be a successful webmaster and/or internet marketer if you are actually excited to see this new waste of space.

    There is no fix for the tools based on the Google web search API since they discontinued it. Go ask Google to turn it back on or come up with a replacement. Until then, I could spend 100s of hours "working on it", but there's really nothing to work on... So it would be rather boring work.

    What does this have to do with the coop? It's one of the most popular tools.

    Since it's "unfixable" would you be willing to sell the source code?

    So, you're saying that the co-op is dead? It would be nice to hand it over to the community of thousands of users if you're not going to make the effort to work on it anymore, or at least make some sort of announcement that we should take the links down.

    It seems everybody has 0 weight in the co-op and yet I still see people's links showing all over my sites. Hard to know what's really going on with the co-op behind the scenes. Would be the greatest shame if it were to end.

    What's the alternative you have which doesn't use the Google API?

    It's somewhat fixed for now, but without any real maintenance, the co-op is slowing falling apart.

    What do you mean by its fixed? Has something changed since this week or are you just generally being optimistic?
