Not necessarily a bad thing... But I wonder if they're at risk of being accused of stealing some intellectual propertah........ :blink:
That's a total copy of tardme :lol:

But hey, it's cheaper and it's NOT tardme... Might give it a whirl :thumbsup:

I for one am staggered that this seems to be the first bit of real competition that tardme has ever faced.

I put my 1st listing on this morning, bit of a glitch with uploading photo's though.

question is if not enough people use it it will just fizzle out or as soon as it becomes a threat TM will buy them out.

I tried registering but the registration system failed, so reading the above, if it is plagued with glitches from day 1, I doubt it will be much of a threat to tardme

I reckon the reason listing is free for the first few months is because it gives them a chance to iron out all the kinks. Give them time I say. Tardme does need the competition though, especially since they upped their success fees today...

I'm not sure about this, the financial backer of Wheedle is the guy who owns Mainfreight. He's got heaps of coin, so a buy out might not be an option...

Seems slow and shit and useless to me. And what a direct copy haha. What happened to any originality these days. I don't see what people are always having a bawwww about with trademe anyway, for what little I use it, it seems fine. Nothing seems to be any different on it from 5-10 years ago


lol @ people jumping on it because grass is greener

http://wheedle.co.nz/Search/ItemDetails/1014 The pinnacle of the 'cycling' section

All the shit bikes in there will be well suited to all the hipsters who are too cool for trademe though

Ahhh, he is the guy that bought the Aston 177 no? Yeah I would say he has probably made some significant investment in the set-up so far, and the initial glitches are probably the fault of the systems people, and I imagine it will get ironed out pretty quick. Cant imagine someone with his fortune lying down and letting it fizzle out if he can help it.

just jumped on to look at that bike (above) and FUCK THATS SLOW, and it crashed when i tried to link up a level to look at "Mountain Bikes"...and man it sure is a copy of Tarred Me, even the categories seem extremely familiar...

if they're struggling with traffic, that might explain why its so slow, but otherwise, that's pretty shocking.
