I just had the big boss man pick me up a copy of RB4. I'll tell you how I like it sometime next week

TOTALLY AGREE with Panky.
If you need the best free one, that's AT Lite(for sure), if you need the paid one, it's ATX (for sure).
Take ATX, and enjoy ;)

Just my :2cents:

Of course. Pure C is the fastest programming language on the world. And C++ follow it in every foot ;)

Sorry, but there is no 'best' trade script. There is no 'best' anything. What works great for one, may be a waste of time + money for another.

Not knocking any script mentioned here (since I own at least one copy of almost all of them LOL), but you'll never find one script that covers all the bases for all different kinds of sites.

Figure out what kind of site you're going to build. And then learn the script that best fits your budget and/or has the admin interface you find easiest on your eyes. Because if you devote enough time to learning how to get the most out of a script, you'll be rocking with damn near anything.

A script with more features might make work easier, or it might confuse the hell out of you.

A script with nice anti-cheat features might save you from cheaters, or it might turn off one of your best trades and mess you up bigtime.

Scripts are nothing but tools. A means to an end. YOU are the architect of the design that is to be built.

I'm totally digging Traffic Trader Turbo (PHP) right now. I think when my site really gets to the point of high traffic levels, I'll probably move up to UCJ. I just see all the big sites using it, so there has to be a reason.

I couldn't agree more. A fool with a tool is still a fool, to put it more harshly. However, being that I have used my fair share of scripts (although I don't own them like you do Steve ;)), I have to say that ATX is my favourite, hands-down. Not only because of the ease of use, but most importantly thanks to the results it's been generating for me. No other trade script has gotten me the results ATX has, period. Couple it with Comus Thumbs and you have a very hard-to-beat combo. In fact, I'm aware of no other combo on today's market that will offer you the same amount of versatility and good results. However, this is just my opinion, so take it for what it is. ;)

trade scripts are evil.

One of the things I like personally about ttt, is that you can easily modify the thmtl files and put in your own top link. You can assure that one of your sites, or a site you prefer to send more traffic to, is always #1. For example:




<td>
<span class="tableitem"><a href="http://www.messedup.net>Messedup.net</a><br></span>
<span class="tableitem">##link1##<br></span>
<span class="tableitem">##link2##<br></span>
<span class="tableitem">##link3##<br></span>
<span class="tableitem">##link4##<br></span>

</td>




this makes it so the toplist still runs as designed, but no trade can steal that top spot. I suppose theoretically you could have a cron script that rotates a set of .thtml files so that you could have different sites rotate throughout the day.

It's also a decent script to use, IMO. I dont know if it's the best, but it works for me.
