    That's fantastic [​IMG] ..... but, does anyone really know how accurate that site (Weboutlook.com)actually is??
    The editor in me saw quite a few typos on their main heading alone [​IMG] :

    Websiteoutlook is a perfect place for website valuation. A buyer or Seller [why is "Seller" capitalized, but "buyer" not?] can get complete information about [a] website which he/she ["he" is grammatically correct for referring to both genders; the "/she" is not necessary] want to buy or sell. This information may not 100% accurate all the time[,] because it is calcultated [should be "calculated'] by a formula which depends on various factor avaliable [should be available] on [the] internet ["internet" should be capitalized] about a website ([no space needed] like traffic rank, google["google should be capitalized] [,] pagerank [should be "PageRank"] [no space needed], backlinks [should be hyphenated], directory listing and many other factors [no space needed] ). [Why put a period when the sentence is still going?? Put a comma.] but gives a nice overview about website. If you want to sell you[r] website you can add it in "For Sale" Section ["Section" should be lowercase]. These all ["All these"] services are free[,] so enjoy them[!] ;-)

    Yeah, I see big red flags about that site too! Bet they are going for page views if people link to them and they get clicked on a lot.

    I wonder if Nifty will be selling shares!
    It would be nice to get in on the ground floor of something B-I-G!

    That is very interesting. I also think it is worth a lot more than that. A wonderful place to talk about wonderful chickens and to wonderful people it priceless in my book! [​IMG]

    HAHAHA... this is great!

    As anybody knows (especially anybody who has had jewelry, baseball cards, coins, etc. "appraised), an asset is only worth as much as someone will pay for it.

    So, we'll start the bidding at $19,965.50??? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Honestly though, the probability of me ever selling BYC is slim to none. Not to blow my own horn, but I just don't trust anybody else to have the crazy diversity (technical skills, chicken skills, community skills & patience) which is needed to keep this great resource alive and growing. I saw the site go dark twice and promised that I'd do all I could to never let that happen again!

    Seriously, all the hours you put into this, it should be worth plenty. What you really need is more ducks.
