    Has anybody thought about making a site like craigslist with a little more visual content?Not a total ripoff but the same basis....Tons of sites ripped off ebay,which are still running......I just started a site like craigslist on dreamweaver.Way far from done.

    There are already tons of classified ad sites now. Many of them arent even populated at all, barely any traffic.

    What makes your 'new' classified site, different than the others? This is what you should take into consideration in your business plan.

    Well,Craigs list is the only classified site where everything is on one page which is nice and its just a simple layout.Theres alot of buzz of people complaining about the changes craigslist has made.I want to add just a little more graphics to a site like that and make it like craigslist used to be.And i'll advertise with something like Try the old style of craigslist.Brand new site....Something along those lines.

    You can use the xzero script which is by far the best CL clone out there. Instead of just having a text list you could modify the script so it would display a large thumbnail on the main page and make other changes to the overall look if you wanted (maybe more web 2.0ish looking). You can find the script at xzeroscripts****com

    too bad there isn't a craigslist scrapper (something like yahoo answers) you can use to populate your own classifieds ;)

    can anybody work on something like that?

    If you want to use the actual ads directly from CL you can pull their RSS feed fairly easily. Here is a site that does it in a visual way like you asked about: http://sfbay.listpic.com/sale%2Felectronics%2Fcamera/

    I see a lot of sites selling this same looking script under different names, who really owns it?
