When cloning goes awry...

Posted by henning September 25, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

Although those cloned sheeps, cows, and dogs looked identical to their genetical blueprints, they all had some more or less severe health issues. Now we learn that the same holds true for website clones:

The ugly clone

These guys stole everything they could carry away from here:

  • The design
  • The approach
  • The icons
  • All texts on the UI
  • The comments policy (sic! word by word)
  • The style sheets
  • The lesson ideas (sort of)

And now comes the best part:

  • The pricing

Yes, they are not even trying to differentiate themselves by price.

If you take a closer look you quickly learn why it is important to have native English speaking hosts & web-editors.

Or good actors for the dialogues.

Or somebody who can write a decent lesson script.

And you learn why it is so easy to turn video into a nightmare.

Welcome to China*.

 

* Should CPod do a lesson on this?
