Hi everyone,

For the last few months I have been developing a smiley website called

The best way to describe it is "an encyclopedia about smiley artists and their works."

Although it has been in development for a little while now, I am now ready to officially announce it here. yahoo.gif

So far I have published articles on
And very soon I will be adding articles on MotherGoose and Millan.net

If you haven't been there before, then you are more than welcome to visit. hi.gif
And if you have been before, then there is a lot of new stuff for you to see too.

The website address is
Or you can click the link in my signature.

Cheers,

BradLee

Dear friends,

I wish to inform you that due to my host (Wikidot.com) changing their terms of service, I have chosen to close the that was hosted there.

Wikidot's recent decision to start charging for features that were previously offered for free, and also to include ads as an additional source of revenue clearly demonstrates a blatant lack of regard for their users.

And while Wikidot maintains that the changes were/are entirely necessary to maintain the same level of service, I do not believe that this is the case.

If we were to take a hypothetical "worst-case scenario," there are approximately 300,000 Wikidot wikis now.
Even if each site were to raise only $1 per year from Google ads, then their revenue would still be $300,000.
Granted not every wiki has Google ads enabled, but we are also not even taking into account the money raised from the PRO and PRO+ accounts.

Now I don't know how much it costs to run the service, have no idea of the hardware costs, maintenence, bandwidth, labour for development, but I highly doubt that the Wikidot developers are actually poor or going broke.

As you can see from the example above, it is simply an opportunistic grab for more money and a clear sign of their increasing greed.

There is more to it than just this, but basically the erosion of free features and their broken promises about "no ads ever" leaves me distrustful of the way that this company operates. And I cannot in good conscience support or promote a company that engages in such deceptive and slimey marketing practices.

Anyway I have not given up on, however it will take some time to rebuild, and at the moment it is not at the top of my list of "things to do."

Lastly I want to that everyone that has supported, commented on, encouraged me and believed in the vision.

If you have further questions, comments, or concerns you can always message me here.

Regards,

BradLee

P.S. If you are wondering why I blatantly mentioned Wikidot.com so many times in my announcement, it is because I hope to catch search engine results so that this can serve as a warning to any potential Wikidot customers.

BradLee, я могу чем-то помочь? Я могу дать денег, предоставить место на сервере и вообще, что я мог бы сделать для вас?

BradLee, can I be of any help to you? I can give money or give a place on a server. And in general, what could I do for you?

Aiwan, Спасибо для вашего доброго предложения, но я должен вежливо отказаться.

Причина для этого - то, потому что должен быть seperate от любого smiley вебсайта так, чтобы его статьи могли быть замечены как беспристрастные и непредубежденные.

наилучшие пожелания

Aiwan, thank you for your kind offer but I have to politely refuse.

The reason for this is because needs to be seperate from any smiley website so that its articles can be seen as impartial and unbiased.

Best regards,

BradLee
