    Hey blackhatters, I'm looking into buying a swoopo script (swoopo.com) and seeing what I can do with it. Does anyone have any advice on how to go about doing that? Also, the script costs a little more thank I have right now. Anyone wanna buy it with me. We could split it more than two ways...

    Anyway, If you have some helpful advice, I would greatly appreciate it!
    Thanks for your help!

    Dude - starting a swoopo clone requires thousands of dollars in capital. If you cannot afford the script, how in g-ds name are you going to afford the items... And advertising and server/domain costs.

    To start one of those, one should have 2k to 10k in start up capiTal.

    Just my 2cents but I think it's pretty valid.

    My advice, I have something ready, with a kicking template. All I need is dedicated server space. I have shared, so it will crash, cant even think about trying what I have in mind on it. If you have a dedicated server, or money to get some space, I am willing to JV. I will control the domain as I have it already purchased, and I have to control some things, you will control the server space.

    It could use an updated script, but I dont think it will be necessary. I have been working on this for a month, it is time to woopo some ass. I just cant see how it does not work. If it fails, it is something I/we missed. No such thing as easy money, but this is about as easy as it gets.

    I will also add, there are 1,000's of Swoopo clone sites on the Internet, they all are looking for riches, all are failing. I am giving you a chance to jump right in, but you cant be one of those 1,000's that would of put up a site, do nothing to it, and then move on after a few weeks. As I said, I have been going at it for over a month, and not been out pushing anything, just working on it, working on the template, working on fixing bugs, working on other code, it is ready, OK, might be some little things that I want to tighten up, but that is because I am a perfectionist.

    One thing, no bidding admin bots will be used. All items are sold. It is part of growing a business, a trust factor, I will tell you why that is important later.

    If you are starting this kind of site on 2008...

    Right now is useless, to much competition for a "tiny" startup

    I dont agree Conas.
    Most of the news sites out there are a complete SCAM.

    Users will see that and move on the the few trusted sites out there.
    I am having my site done so it could pass any audit - looking for bots.

    Some penny auction review sites are in the progress of making "A certificate" for trusted sites.

    The scammers might be able to make a few $$ before they are out of business :)
    The trusted sites will just make more profit as user confidence will grow.
