This question is mainly for you clannies out there. It is theoretical, and will help me make a decision.
I'm sure many of you have seen the server tracking program that we use at JK2Files.com:
Click around...click on those little icons...click on "Who's On?"
I hope you think it's cool. I actually wrote that particular program to work that way.
My question is this. Would you pay $5/month so that you could put the exact same thing on your own Web page? My service would do all the tracking, and you'd simply paste a little HTML on your Web page. Bam. You get all the functionality that you see on that page for ANY JK2 server you want. No programming necessary, no hosting necessary. No logos, banners or links. You would even be able to control colors.
Yes, there are free programs out there that you can download and install on any server for free. But you have to know what you are doing, and you have to have root access to that server. What I am suggesting would work on ANY Web page, even Tripod or GeoCities. Just paste in a snippet of HTML which I give you and you're set.
Is that worth five bucks?
Your feedback is GREATLY appreciated.
Well I personally WANT it lol but... not many people would pay $5 even if it is needed just for a program that would track a server.... maybe you should do one free and another for $5 that would be able to have remote admin ... so the free one wouldnt have remote admin or somethign fancy and the $5 one will! lol so then everyone will be happy and if they want to cool addon they pay $5 a month or w/e lol ok C-Ya *Please think this over lol casue i really would liek to see one free that would only be an html thing cause i dont know about php or pearl or anythign liek that!*
Thinking over is why I'm posting this. :)
But to make it truly portable and useful for everyone means I would have to do a bit of work in preparation...I don't know if I would invest that much effort if I couldn't get something back..
So I guess I'm here to find out what kind of demand there is.
As many as possible, please tell me if this is a good idea or a lame idea...I'm open to alternative suggestions as well!
