I think they're more into getting hits from people that spell this URL wrong.
Kinda like when you goto www.goolge.com (Which is seems Google bought that domain from whoever owned it now...)
but you get my drift

i think so too, they couldn't register the same name as xbox addict so they dropped the 2nd "d".

Actually registering many domains to point to one site is a great business practice. If someone makes a typo, look where it takes them. Then suddenly you are intrigued about the site. Hmm, can this site compare to the real XBA? So then you surf it to find out. Low and behold you may find something you like and come back again sometime. Others may find nothing, and then just bust on a site because they dont know how to spell. They got ya there in the first place didnt they? LOL

They only have one registered member and 3 posts in total. They do have some cool smilies I would like to see used here.

But usually it's spam companies that buy urls that they know people will make typos with.

Rofl....in that guys bio:

Personal Bio :: I'm one of Xbox Adicts webmasters, and actually, the original creator of the XA idea, and though, at the time of thought when I created it, my sketches couldn't fit 2 'D's, I believe it now to by stylistic, and well-suited to the website.

RudedogX
03-18-2003, 01:07 PM
So basically he came up with an idea to try and rip-off another site. Wow, yeah...that was ahh...real original.:rolleyes:

You know what,
xboxadict was just a test to see what would happen.

and I didn't think that it would insult you guys here.

But I'm not going to take the site down,
I worked hard on it, and I don't really care what
the domain name is, or if you think that I ripped off this site.
Or if you people think that I suck at the internet.

because I liked the sound of "xbox addict",
and I don't really cared how it's spelled,
but I really wanted the sound of those 2 words.

But being that there was already a huge site with that name, you still felt it was necessary to go on and use it anyways? Bad marketing man....bad marketing. But do realize, you're site couldn't hold XBA's balls in a whellbarrow, just making sure we got that clear ;)

tntcheats
03-18-2003, 03:49 PM
guess I should have gone to xboxaddict before registering the name eh?

RudedogX
03-18-2003, 03:52 PM
Well, in order to register the name, if you had spelled it correctly, you would have run in to XBOXADDICT.com. As for the marketing, it all depends on the type he is trying to get. He claims not to have wanted to steal people, just that he was trying to create his own site. No offense to you cheats, but the way that it is set up, it does make it look as if you were attempting to capitalize on individuals who miss a letter in the name. Also, when creating a website, it is always helpful to do your research and check all of the similar sites out there.:)

tntcheats
03-18-2003, 03:54 PM
thx for the advice,
I'll use it when I'm either run out of this domain name,
or when I make another site.

and damn I like this smilie :eek:

But of course...that's like me registering www.teamXXbox.com and not realizing that there's a teamxbox.com site. At least have the intelligence to do a search for what names are taken, especially in the gaming community, hell, this and TXB are up there as the largest communities, at least those that are moderated. Like I was saying...that was just a dum move...sorry.

Yeah, you're not being any worse than normal.

To the topic though, I just think this guy wanted a site called xboxaddict.com but that name was already registered so he did the next best thing. Xboxadict.com, I really think we should lay off on this guy.

By the way, the site is actually pretty nice.

LynxFX
03-18-2003, 04:16 PM
Well I think we have ragged on him enough. I suggest we just drop it and move on.

Whether his site name was accidental or a laps of better judgement is moot. We all know the real Xbox Addict so let's leave it at that. I'll leave this thread open for now but please refrain from any further personal attacks.

Just an FYI:

Xboxaddict.com
Registered and created: 07-10-2000

Xboxadict.com
Registered and created: 01-25-2003


Just a personal question though tntcheats. What exactly was the test and what were you expecting to see happen?

RudedogX

Whoa, trying to cover up are guilt. Getting off subject there eh?
That is really lame. That was just a huge excuse of you being a moron that you were trying to cover up.

tntcheats
03-18-2003, 09:29 PM
the test,
was to see if it mattered on spelling,
or if I could get the same amount of people otherwise.

It didn't work,
I'm getting not-too-good traffic.

And I didn't register at this forum entirely because of this thread,
which for some reason,
unlike the other thread of the same kind,
isn't deleted....

LynxFX
03-18-2003, 09:57 PM
Fortunately spelling in today's world does matter. At least in the url address. After that it seems to get a bit lax, just look at these forums. ;)

What other thread are you talking about?

tntcheats
03-18-2003, 11:39 PM
a while back, my stats page brought me to another thread on this forum...
'wow xboxadict.com'
I think it was called,
but one of the mods told the starter of the thread not to advertise other websites or something like that.

It was like a month ago,
when I was on my 2nd or third design of about 6 or 7

Would it **** you guys off if I got xboxaddict.net?

It was hard to put on,
cause I was using a tag from dreamweaver to do it originally,
but then I figured that I'd just edit someone with a flash sig's thing,
because that would probbably work.

not a spelling mistake,
a typo there.

I spent about 20 seconds making that.

But it doesn't matter anyways; I'm changing my signature,
to something that'll probbably load faster,
and make sense to the people who didn't visit this thread :p
