Copy of Coop?

    Interesting. Success does breed copies I suppose.

    http://www.yourcan.com/

    But it is almost an exact copy! Code and all.

    Very Cheeky

    Unless I know who's behind it/whether I can trust them with my links, I wouldn't sign up. Ads might show an all sorts of dodgy pages.

    Anyone know who's initiative this is?

    Ned is the admin for the copy coop and also a forum member here at digitalpoint.

    It was bound to happen but it is such a direct copy of the coop. Directions, code, implementation. Maybe I am jumping the gun here, but only Ned can explain how it is different than THE COOP?

    Hi all,

    Yes that’s my work, however, it’s not a rip of anything. I would never rip off someone else’s code, I’ve had it done to me and it’s not nice.

    Some of it is similar I agree (mainly because that’s the only efficient way to do it in php) but I did everything from scratch myself, the weighting system is different (i presume since all of Shaun’s code is hidden) but has the same purpose/end result, in fact most of it different. If you log in you'll see how different it is.

    Obviously the main purpose is the same. To display text links/banners with no click through scripts, the code is bound to be similar as Shaun has coded his in the most efficient way to do it and so have I.

    I didn’t mean to cause offence and hopefully I haven’t.

    Cheers,

    Ned

    hmmm, taken from http://www.yourcan.com/?page=about

    Not signed up so I don't know if they have ad validation or if they let them live *then* review them...

    Which makes a interesting point. Although ads have to be validated on digital coop network sites do not (?) Therefore if I had a really nasty spammy naughty site I can signup and put ads on....Is that bad?

    That's what I'd like to know. What level of 'respectability' will there be in you're CAN? I don't want gambling, porn or other shady sites advertising on mine.

    All adverts are reviewed before going live. So no dodgy, porn, gambling , e.t.c ads will ever be shown.

    John Loch has got those covered I believe... Launch in 2 months (gut feeling someone might beat him to it).

    Never really thought about that, certainly a good idea.

    Wonder how much interest there would be.

    Damn Shame porncan.com is taken though hehe

    You can register .coop domains...

    Bargain for the first one to register ad-network.coop or network.coop (both available, I checked).

    Now that would be a bit different. Allowing a coop just for non-mainstream sites.

    I've been thinking about a non-mainstream site coop ever since the coop ad network came out. It would definitely be useful to those webmasters. What's the deal on John Loch? Does he have a url for his soon to be released version?
