New GOTD evaluation system

Dear GOTD visitors,

Thanks for being with us all this time and for suggesting many useful things for our project. Right now we’re working on a new evaluation system that would be more sophisticated and effective for developers, our subscribers and those who come here to get some info about certain software products.

We would be very glad to hear your ideas on how we can make GOTD better, what new features you’d like to see on GAOTD site, what services you’d like to have here, how you’d like to evaluate software etc.

(Except for software suggestions – for that we still have another thread
that, yes, we check often and get much use of it)

Any comments on improving GOTD are welcome.



  1. Not being the most computer savvy kind of person, I read all the comments that are written about the product and the information on the products main site before deciding whether are not to download and try it out. I agree that whatever type of feedback system GAOTD decides on should focus on both the positives and negatives of the of the software. I do not find a comment that just says it’s good or bad helpful. I also find that when a comment includes a reference to other products of the same type (without being a sales pitch for the other product) can be helpful. Most of the information that I try to understand before deciding to use any new software has already been stated by others, except I would stress the need for the product developers to state not only which OS the product works best on but also whether 32 or 64 and if there are any known possible conflicts with existing software.

  2. Along with a rating scale 1-5 or whatever, you could include a button for “Not Interested” — which would cover people who used ti vote thumbs down just because they weren’t interested.

  3. .
    1) How do I ‘subscribe’ to GOTD??
    2) I concur with everyone else who REQUIRES being able to move my GOTD software to a new OS Build or a new PC!!!!

    How are we allowed to do so????
    Maybe using a Software/User Info mover like ”PCmover”?!?!?!?!

    Please email me with answer.

  4. Ditto!! I swapped my hd for a new larger one and can’t reinstall those programs I got from your site. A lot of them are very good and I was hoping to reinstall on a fresh install of windows vs. drive copying and keeping all the old clutter.

  5. how about creating a web slice (for internet explorer 8) that shows the current giveaway. Sometimes, i forget to visit the website everyday, and a quick look at the given program would help!!!

  6. The 1 single problem I have with any of the software is, I try to install all my software to my external because we all know systems crash and we loose some software that we really like and use a lot, only sometimes some software will not run unless it is installed to C drive or where ever your windows runs from, I have lost some really awesome software from GOTD but…..I have also received some really awesome software from here so I guess for free software I really cant complain, love this site and pass the word often, keep up the great work guys

  7. What if the folks who often install and use developers software and evaluate the software regularly are offered a fully functional software, up datable up gradable help assistance and all ” fully functional ” software, at GOTD or developers choosing of course. just seems like a nice little initiative bonus type thing, maybe 1 free software a year for those who participate regularly, just a thought

  8. me personally I put every piece of software I use through hell-fire trials lol, like the latest DVD ripping software WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, awesome software, I tested every function even though the simplest settings work great, you folks do a super great job, keep it up. oh yea ! and Team GOTD, lunch is on me today.
