Hi, Swan (submitter of #20 and #48).
You ask a legitimate question; it's one that seems difficult to answer, as your comment #20 seems genuine, informative, and helpful. Personally, I liked it.

However, a conspiracy theory ran through my mind overnight, and I just had to submit it. Perhaps, just *perhaps*, the same people who orchestrated all the bogus, deceitful positive commentary and votes for this product were genuinely alarmed that you warned us all of the "auto update" feature that could be turned off, and so perhaps *they* are the ones who negatively voted on your comment. After all, imagine a user who began using this product, created a relatively large volume of personal, desirable, valuable diary entries but then suddenly lost them to an unintended upgrade. This might be so unpleasant to that user that the user would be forced to pay the registration fee!

What you've essentially done is alert all us potential users to do something obvious that might reduce the company's revenue stream, by preventing them from purposefully tricking people into the upgrades and not letting them downgrade back to the GAOTD version. Perhaps that alarmed them enough to mount a counter-strike and vote your advice down, down, down! (That *would* fit the rest of the scenario we've seen with that company!)

Heck, I dunno, but it's a (conspiracy) theory. And since you were sincere in wanting an answer, I'm offering up this perhaps pathetic explanation in hopes that it might help -- cause, yeah, that's too many negative votes on your comment.

41 comments and 1800+ votes.
I was looking for something like this and wanted to try it, but the false voting has put me off. I think I'll try one of the alternates mentioned above.

GAOTD - you should look into and stop false voting.

I think there is a bug in the 'Did you find this comment useful?' On one of the comments, I clicked on yes, and it increased by 21 instead of 1.

It might be wise to check this out, considering all of today's comments from alarmed users of this site.

Hi all
I HAVE been waiting for a Journal software since the days of Win3.1.
I wish I could remember the name of it. I looked like a journal with flip pages that "acted" like paper. It also highlighted the days you had entries in.
My days of being organized ended when my last Palm Pilot died.
About todays giveaway if you can't synchronize it or back it up I don't want it.
I went to their website but couldn't find out what country they were from. Strike two.
Thanks anyway. I am glad this site exists as I always learn something.
Another thing I miss from the "good old days" are the free Computer papers that were available on every corner once a week here in Toronto.
I will try out Giovanni's suggestions when I have more time.
Thanks again.

@16 I would think that this list would be in any 'Diary' software. After all, these are basic editing features. A 'Diary' would need at least these features for me to try it, without these I might as well use Windows Notebook.

********************************************************************
The following features are missing in this GAOTD compared to the FULL VERSION worth 40 bucks:

* Powerful diary browser to navigate all entries
* Spell check for typing mistakes
* Thesaurus for richer vocabulary
* Word Count statistics
* Diary entry printing
* Print preview for diary entry and Event calendar
* Event calendar printing
* Export diary entry to RTF, TXT

After reading some comments above i have done a little bit research on the web before considering to download or not.

I saw those fake reviews on all products of this company of today's giveaway on CNET. All reviewers are 1 time reviewers (just watch their profiles), with nicks from an online nick-generator and partially badly translated english. So you see, they are not only faking voting statistics here. The whole company is a fake, with faked votes, fake reviews on many download sites and faked download statistics and -who knows- a likejacked facebook page of the program today.

The good thing is, i don't need to uninstall it because i would never install and certainly never download it, if there is such a "bogus" marketing strategy behind it. I heard about this company for the first time and be sure, that was the last time also.

Did not like this software. Most if not all the cons written above are true. I am happy with the diary apps and PIMs I already have anyway. The ratings for this are terribly skewed. I have learned not to I completely trust the thumbs up and down on the GAOTD offerings, but this one is the worst I have seen yet. Authors have obviously posted to the "members" on their site to come over here and falsely rate the software. Another reason I would never even attempt to get used to this software if I even liked it.

No don't like vote manipulation, however if to play around with this, uncheck the automatic updates, and turn off the text ads also, don't think this should not have to connect to internet so much after having selected not to use their proxy server. so here is links without digging too hard: http://www.chrysanth.com/about/ and http://www.chrysanth.com/

Here we go again. If I lived in the USA then I would pay $19.95 for the upgrade but as I live in the UK I'm expected to pay €19.95 which equals $26.00. That's a no from me to the upgrade, then. Why on earth should I pay so much more than my USA cousins? Huh!

Heavily skewed voting. I wouldn't download this even if its good. Unfair practices equal negative reviews. Clean up your act if you want a true feedback for your product, else get relegated to the domains of dodgy software products. I suspect its the marketers who are doing this, true developers will never dream of cheating the end users.

I guess from all the negative responses, not even 25% have tried the program!

Here my own review

Today's free giveaway is a great software tool to enhance my productivity in many ways.

I like the MS Office adaptation of the entire program.
The feature that drew me keeping it is, it has a very clean layout for starters.

Next thing I like is the note editor, that is, if you are used to MS Word, you feel at home. In there you can add pictures, tables and more. And each note is saved in an organized fashion.

I give praise for this program, because it is unique in its concept and design. It is also extremely useful to keep organized without cluttery elements. (Take OneNote for example, OneNote is utterly cluttery and I stayed away from it.)

Next month I will upgrade to the full version.
It's too good to be missed.

again
Many Thanks for that giveaway

I will stop download and test software from here. Too many programs are crippled versions, not the full versions. It is kind of ridicilous that such software are given away when many freewares most often do a better job. Another thing is also the ridicilous high prices of the full softwares given away...many times too high in my opinion. I sometimes wonder if the creators even know how to price their software at all....

Hello, all.
Open "notepad.exe".
Type ".LOG",
type "Enter",
type "Alt + F4",
in the 'Save as' dialog, type the name you choose, [I.E. My_Journal].

Open the "My_Journal" file,
& you'll see that you now have an entry for today's date & time.

Each time you open the "My_Journal" file,
it will auto-add the date & time.
Just write the details of *your* journal,
which you can name [or rename] whatever you choose.
For privacy, you may name it "xyz" [or any alpha-numeric code]'.log'.

Have a GREAT day, neighbors!

I've downloaded similar programs before and ended up using them only once or twice. I just don't get it: why anyone would use a "diary" program with text editing functions inferior to those of Word to keep a diary? Doesn't writing the diary in Word do the same thing much better? And with Word, you don't have to worry about uninstalling the program later and losing all your entries. You can create a folder to keep all the journal entries and even password protect it in Windows.

The difference between this and the journal offered several months ago is this software includes an organizer and the journal does not. However, the journal includes a spell checker and more significantly an export feature. I am not sure how useful a diary that does not even allow you to export a text file may seem to some. You could copy and paste your entries into another application but then you might as well use another application altogether.

I cannot imagine paying any money for this application and not being able to print or export. It's fine for a free program but not for $20. For $20 you can get software capable of doing a lot more. All you're actually getting is a pretty interface but word processing software allows you to insert a date, format, and make the same entry minus the aesthetics. Or a note outliner can get you the same results and you can add a pretty background.

I was thinking to myself earlier today about starting a journal, the irony of visiting today to find Chrysanth Diary Starter.

I may be jumping the gun here but since when does a software on GoTD site reach 912 votes in such a short time? I have been visiting for years & have rarely seen such bloated voting, terrible, terrible way to draw users to the software (you know who you are).

Visiting the developers site & seeing testimonials similar to comments above (knowing the community would down those comments) having such high positive votes themselves screams "run away!" to me, if that's the way you draw potential users in, what's actually hiding in the software...hmm?

Unfortunately, i am one of those users who will not be downloading this software as i do not believe that the developer takes the software seriously enough to consider the time i could take to download, test & give feedback on the software given today, If the developer did then it may have gained some merit from the community.

I will simply try Giovanni's recommendations, since he is a regular & well respected by the community.

Thanks for trying but you simply cannot move forward with square wheels.

See y'all tomorrow!

Regards,
John

Btw; i did not vote as i think that system lost its merit a long time ago.

Last time Chrysanth made an offering on here was Oct 12 2011 and that too received an inordinate number of votes compared to surrounding days offerings, see http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/chrysanth-journal/

3092 thumbs up to 611 thumbs down, personally I cannot use any diary or journaling program that is not portable across all the platforms I use and network syncronisable, so I don't have to make sure the PC the software is installed on is up and running and I have to waste my thought time retaining what needed to be journaled and discarded from my consious mind until I can get to the specific PC the diary/journaling program resides on.
Also sounds like this is fixed pink skin... so they must be targeting genders and personalities that like pink only. No thanks even if you manage to get the entire populus of malasya to vote thumbs up on your behalf!

I tried the free version of this for a few weeks and the free version of iDailyDiary for the same time period. Both had advantages and disadvantages, but in the end, I settled on iDailyDiary and purchased the professional version. It does have the ability to backup, including to a flash drive, and I just thought it was a case where less was more.

Three very good reasons to come here every day
1. You might get some great software
2. If not, you will get many alternative programs and links
3. The comments, the musings on what's "really" going on here, and the banter.
I love all three.
Passing on the software, alternatives suggested look better; thanks GOTD. (Besides diaries should be handwritten!)

Also, at this early stage, over 600 “thumbs up”. Not even the ever popular Ashampoo, Paragon and Wondershare products draw those numbers.

Thanks to all the 'old timers' that I recognize - I have over the years picked up some ideas, bought some of the upgraded versions offered here and NOT loaded some. As a teacher and the school's tech person I value the inputs and I check what they say (and who says it). I am a minimalist and cannot afford to load everything that is posted. The good ones I recommend to other school techs. Thanks 2, 11-18 (esp 12 b/c of the Uninstaller!)

I'm glad I read the comments before downloading. I couldn't believe it when I saw a 80% positive for this program, and it turns out my instinct was right! I did NOT download and try it, so I cannot comment on the actual program itself, but what gives with the overwhelming negative reviews, including a few serious glitches and what appears to be freeware being "given away" today, and a few positive reviews with spelling and syntax errors? GotD, I challenge you to review what COUNTRY all the positive votes are coming from. You've been set up! Scammed! Railroaded!

Why, regulars here know that EVEN IF this were the best PIM on the entire planet, there is no way that a PIM software would garner an 80% "thumbs-up" rating! The way that people usually vote in here, just the nature of the program itself draws negative votes.

This is a fast loading, attractive and easy application, with basically no learning curve at all.

You can choose from various themes, making the software attractive to your own eye. Downloaded, installed and activated without a hitch on my Windows 7 machine.

You also have the option/addition of a "web diary" as well as a private diary, although why people would want to pour out their private lives to the public, I have no idea.

The software is very configurable, but make sure you UNCHECK the option to check for new versions, otherwise you might receive an upgrade to the version you got from GaotD, causing you to have an unregistered version of the software.

Today's software seems to do what it says on the tin - thank you to both Chrysanth and GaotD for today's offer. For me it's a keeper.

Why all the Bogus Reviews and Favorable Votes? I am becoming more and more and much more disillusioned with each passing month will all the bogus reviews and all the positive votes for these bogus reviews! Like with today's offering, barely 3 hours into the offering, I found the first comment has +87 favorable votes! HOW AND WHY? That's a no-value, inane comment, and the 87 positive comments immediately make it clear that it's a rigged comment with rigged votes. Surely the company is involved in this, as there is simply no way there could be that many positive votes on such a useless comment. (The only other alternative is that GAOTD is involved in this vote manipulation.) I assume it must be the developers, the company, their friends, family, or investors, or some cabal interested in presenting false information designed to get us to download and install these offerings. (I guarantee that "Ruby" is directly involved somehow!") Note the broken English in the comment; this always persuades me to believe it is our "foreign" developers who are collectively voting to promote their stuff. WHY OH WHY can't GAOTD stop this practice; it would be so easy to develop scripts to peruse the server logs for bogus votes and then to delete the associated comments, if found. GAOTD should value its customers more than its suppliers. I am tempted to try this program out, but when I see clear, obvious deceit and fraud in the commentary, I immediately become skeptical and worried about what *other* deceit might be in the product itself! And yeah, I know, I'm clearly not the first person to point this out, but I just couldn't resist when I saw +87 positive votes~! REALLY, GAOTD? Give us a break and help us out here!

This is not portable, Right? For me an organizer or diary should be bring anywhere we go, so we can update events. So if this is not portable, you can only update your database in single pc. Another thing is this app doesnt have password protection for privacy right? As we all know, we input some private details in our diary or organizer. If your unit failed and you bring it to a technician, the technician can easily access your diary. So, it would be better if this is portable and password protected.

Ah OK!!

I've just read their comparison chart among different editions...

The following features are missing in this GAOTD compared to the FULL VERSION worth 40 bucks:

* Powerful diary browser to navigate all entries
* Spell check for typing mistakes
* Thesaurus for richer vocabulary
* Word Count statistics
* Diary entry printing
* Print preview for diary entry and Event calendar
* Event calendar printing or export to PDF
* Export diary entry to RTF, TXT or HTML file


Please note that most of these missing features are instead offered for FREE by the freeware and cross-platform diary & journal app "RedNotebook" (see download link above).

So you've been warned... but of course use your own judgement!!

Very nice PIM today with a MS Word 2010 smart interface and an extremely powerful WYSIWYG editor which makes the editing of a diary entry a breeze!!

Definitely a KEEPER...but hmmmm I was wondering the meaning of "STARTER" edition.... I smell a rat here....

Looks like not the FULL VERSION of the program...just for a change!!

Is that right, dudes??


Anyway, as BEST FREEWARE ALTERNATIVES I recommend the following GEMS:

* (PORTABLE) CintaNotes (my personal FIRST CHOICE)

This is a TERRIFIC free Personal Note Manager supporting TEXT SNAPPING, I highly recommend you using, if you are keen on keeping your daily notes and tasks organized in a very professional way.
Since it supports TEXT SNAPPING, with this magic tool you can collect and tag your own thoughts as well as any piece of information you may run into while reading docs or surfing the web (software reviews, freebies & giveaway, book and article excerpts, job postings, famous people quotes, research data, curious facts, Wikipedia definitions, blog posts, important news etc...).

And finding out your notes has never been easier with this app, as they can automatically be retrieved for you thanks to its awesome "as-you-type searching" option, which allows users to retrieve only those notes containing the text and the title they previously typed and even the URL those notes were taken from.

It can even synchronize your notes across multiple PCs via DropBox and/or LiveMesh: how cool is that, dudes?? So, forget the TREE and use this more professional FREE note manager instead:

http://cintanotes.com/


* (PORTABLE) RedNotebook

COOL cross-platform diary and journal:

http://rednotebook.sourceforge.net/

The Portable version, to carry it anywhere you go, can be downloaded here:

http://portableapps.com/apps/office/rednotebook_portable


* FamilyFile 1.0.1.3 (no longer supported but still a pretty good PIM in my view)

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Home-Education/FamilyFile.shtml

Screenshots:
http://www.softpedia.com/progScreenshots/FamilyFile-Screenshot-119329.html

And here you can download the FREE & PORTABLE version of great to-do list software like “Efficient PIM Free PORTABLE”, “Portable Efficient Sticky Notes 3.0 Build 319″, “Portable Efficient Man’s Organizer Free 3.0 Build 318″ etc…

You can take your pick...LOL!

The limitations on this -- see here http://deardiary.my/buy-diary/ -- are substantial and, given the (literally dozens of) alternatives for this kind of thing that are either free or are regularly offered here which DON'T have these limitations, it's a thanks but no thanks situation for me.

I'm perfectly happy using TreePad for this (and for just about everything which involves text and its organization). If I didn't have TreePad, the Maple offering here awhile back, or the (various) Efficient Organizer offerings regularly offered here would work just fine. Otherwise, I'd go with KeynoteNF or (just about) any 2 pane tree-type organizer. They all do pretty much the same thing AND do things this can't (like transfer your writing to another program, print, etc.)

Since I made a small comment about this to Jeff (#9), looked at the main home page, etc, thought I'd download and install, which I did sucessfully on WPro7-64.

Because of reghacker's comment (#2), I took the extra precaustion of monitoring the complete installation in case what he/she says is true.

The program is registered and ready to roll, but I haven't had a chance to put it through its paces. At the very least, I would recommend that BEFORE installing this, it would be wise to create a new Restore Point (in Windows). Even better would be to use some software that can monitor all the changes made so that if you later want to remove them, you can. (Innovative Solutions' Advanced Uninstaller Free edition can do this.)

I agree with Rob (#7). There sure are a lot of votes piling up quickly. For you newbies, the rating is to whether or not a commment is helpful not whther or not it is favorable to the application. So comments that include installation issues or that identify an alternate, portable and also free version, are helpful. Where as comments such as 'I Like it!' or that are snarky to others' questions are not.
PS - since the rating seems over-inflated based on the two comments with the glowing reviews against the one comment that offers a competitor, I will pass on this one.

Something strange is going on here ...... 624 "thumbs up's" in under three hours.

Very few GAOTD offers get that many votes in 24 hours - those that do tend to be exceptionally good programs and I cannot see why todays offer should generate such a response.
