This isn’t a production-ready product and you know it; you should delist it to avoid wasting people’s time. If you need money to complete it, raise the money, but don’t put a development product on Beyond its readiness status, it has some architectural problems in that it makes assumptions about what users need from a page takeover. It does have potential, which is why I give it two stars instead of 1.
