  • So my site would have Contextual advertising applied to keywords?
    If I select the paid for service, can I have this turned off?

    No, I hate that stuff, that's not what we're doing.

    What we do is look for links that people put in comments/posts, and we look for smart things to do with those links.

    Examples:
    If you put a YouTube link on LFGSS, and we understand it... we'll just embed the video already.

    If you put a link to a ridewithgps.com route... we'll embed a map.

    How affiliates work, is if someone puts up a link to Chain Reaction, we change that link to tell CRC that, "Hey, this came from LFGSS". And if anyone arrives at CRC and subsequently buys stuff, then CRC knows who to give a couple of % to.

    We won't put in links if the author didn't put in links, and the links include nothing that implicitly tracks you or your users.

    An example for a Ridley frame on CRC:
    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Model­s.aspx?ModelID=105407

    You see?

    Vanity URLs - will I be able to remap the dns entries to a custom domain?
    www.windrushtri.co.uk

    Yes.

    You'd get a site on our site: windrushti.microco.sm and then you can set up a DNS CNAME for www.windrushti.co.uk and use your own domain.

    T̶u̶m̶b̶l̶r̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶s̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶e̶y̶ through custom themes - any schnaggins like that planned?

    We plan to launch good default themes, and the ability to edit the colours and some basic CSS properties too. Of course you can change your logo without changing your theme.

    There may be a market in 3rd party themes, but it's not something we plan.

    We're not looking for ways to charge you, but we are looking for ways to give you what you want.
