Launching a website dedicated to distributing iMacro Scripts

Post by Trucifix » Fri Aug 13, 2010 5:25 am

I am launching a new web site, http://www.getimacroscripts.com. I am in no way trying to compete with iopus.com, instead I am looking to create a website with the sole purpose of distributing iMacro scripts to the "public".

While some scripts will be free, depending on their complexity and use, it will also allow for script writers to have a website to aid in the selling of professionally written scripts.

The site is up and running, but I still need to put a few systems in place. I urge anyone who has ever wanted a site like this to get in touch with me.

For the sake of rambling, Ill just say, I'd love to hear from you, whether you wanna share your scripts for free, or sell them to the masses, just take a moment and check out the site and consider contacting me.

I do with you all the best, but I can see some fatal flaws with your site?

Since all the Imacros are in full plain text, whats to stop you from ripping off another author and claiming it as your own? What stopping another author, downloading your free scripts and upgrading them from your base code and calling it their own?

Just wondering?

Yeah being text files they are easy to distribute, I can't really change that. But I learned real quick that most people just want to buy the scripts, they don't want to have to write them.

What other "flaws" did you notice ?

Hi..

Now I do wish you all the best and I really do it works out for you. I thought I would give you my stand point as a programmer.


As a programmer I would never give my code out to a 3rd person to sell in plain text, it would be so easy for another to modify my code and claim it as their own to be in competition with my own script. Or I would not want another programmer to take my idea and build on it to sell it. Maybe there are other programmers out there that do not care about that..


For Example if I worked 2 months on a script getting it just right and it started selling like hot cakes, let's say $50-$700 a month at $9.99 each. someone could just take that code build a little on it and have it ready for sale in under 1-3 days but the new owner would get all the credit for it.

Now if you had a service that would give some developers piece of mind that maybe you could lock their code in VB.NET for example. I am starting my own website that gives away bot Macros but locked inside an .exe I just spent the big money and bought the unlimited player version and the scripting edition, maybe we can get together and offer some kind of service? Just a thought.

But if the entire theme was to give away plain text Macros then I think that would defeat the entire purpose?

Just thinking out loud, I don't mean to be cruel but I would never use your service if I was looking to make money from my scripts.

On second thought I might use your service on some dead easy scripts just to get links back to my site for people to buy more complex scripts.

Sorry for rambling.

Thanks,
David
