I've created this website
bitswap.cz.cc

It's supposed to be for bitcoin users as a meeting/market place where people can trade their goods and services for bitcoins. I'm hoping that it will aid the growth of a robust bitcoin economy where people can easily find and trade a wider range of goods and services, thus increasing the value/utility of bitcoin. So far, no takers. So I thought I'd "plug it" in this forum.

Perhaps it's not really what the community needs or wants right now, but if anyone wants to suggest any ideas or improvements/features that will make it more useful to them as a service, please let me know (contact@bitswap.cz.cc). Also, any ideas on promotion would be welcome. I've already added it to a few directories.

I have a few observations.

1. It looks terrible.
2. YAK ! Dark green ! This is disgusting.
3. It does not look trustworthy. You really need to create a more professional image if You want people to trust You with their money.
4. You are a newbie on this forum, with 17 posts, with no reputation. How are people supposed to trust You anyway ?
5. Your domain name is VERY bad & unprofessional, If You're wanting to do some serious buisness with it.
6. EDIT: No SSL ? Not even a non-authority-signed certificate ? What is this ? It definately looks like a scam site, i can tell You.
7. Are you serious about this at all ?
8. GOTO 1

Thanks for the tips. I agree that it doesn't look very good, I'm not a web designer, just a coder. But I'll try to improve the appearance.

I don't think trust is a huge issue, because I'm not selling anything. It's a free service. You have nothing to lose by posting a notice. Though, I do intend to charge a small fee for posting if the site grows, but that's down the track.

The reason I don't have SSL and a proper domain is because I'm a cheap ass and I don't want to invest money into this thing if it's not gonna get used. Would you use it if I fixed the various issues you mention (get a proper DN/SSL and fix the style)?

It's hard to judge if there is a market for this thing and what features would be considered important or useful.

Thanks for the advice.

looks better than craigslist.

I read SOH's description before going, and expected much worse.

good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment

I will not be as critical as SOH.

It could be a bit better (with some pictures) but what I'm essentially missing is a list of all offers and a list of the last 10 offers.

Cool!

There was a bug in the login script. sorry about that. It should be working now. Please try again.

I'll add a list of the 10 most recent offers on the home page. I'll also try my skill at designing a picture. Thanks for the feedback.

Still unable to login.

I also discovered http://www.biddingpond.com  which, for no apparent reason, is not listed in the bitcoin trade page.

Don't you think that bitswap and biddingpond are nearly the same ?

Biddingpond is listed on the trade page. Under the "Other" section.

You could offer a bitcoin bounty for someone to create a pic for you Smiley

biddingpond is an auction site. Bitswap is more like a job notice board.

I'm sorry about the login problem. What happens when you try to log in? Did you try to register again? What login did you use? I don't see any new account in the database that could be yours.

That's a great idea, but I have only 50 bitcoins and I can't really buy any with the problems at mtgox and bitcoinmarket. Pic will have to wait.
