    Yeh im not a fan of this, I liked it how it was before, I dont know why they are trying to move all their classifieds away, they did the same with their design competitions which have moved over to 99designs.com

    i am reading complaints elsewhere as well, although some of the complaints are that they are now charging to list sites/names which i think reasonable for them to do because they offer a service. I was late to discover the older version 'sitepoint' so i just take it as is for now.

    I think they had to, the old site was full of templated domains, false stats, and questionable earnings.

    By charging for the listings, it has reduced the volume a bit, but at least most of the scammers have gone.

    I mean there would be 30 "directory sites" for sale at any point of time all with identical databases
