I haven’t really found a good review of Ska Date out there, so I asked Max Chadwick to collaborate with me on a review.(Max provided some design, system configuration and project management, and I focused on back end system setup and data migration.) Updated 4/2: We used Ska Date 7.5, versions 14. Skadate pluses: I think Ska Date is a good choice for a basic dating site; if you need just the features in the demo and you’re willing to spend some time unraveling the administration UI and you are on a tight budget.
Dating websites on particular need to be very flexible and offer robust features such as photos, video and multiple ways of messaging or communicating on the site. It is run by a famous Russian scammer Vlad Khorkhorov from Kyrgyzstan. All famous scammers work from Kyrgyzstan (Skadate for example) because there are literally no laws in this country. You won't have to go too far to check this, just look in the domain info. And the script itself is so buggy that you can not do without their help. Having the right tools for your dating website will determine if it is wildly successful or a constant problem generating very little revenue.Remember, if clients are having problems with your website, then so are you, and you will spend your time fixing problems instead of making money.
