Het kan geen kwaad ook goede doelen te steunen, toch?  Wel, laten we dus youbedo.com als ingebouwde zoekmachine voor boeken aanbieden in plaats van bol.com.

Oops, I thought this was a Dutch affair, but now English speaking folks is listening too.  The question is to use youbedo.com instead of bol.com as a default search engine for books.

I see no point in replacing bol.com. FWIW: I’ve never heard of YouBeDo (though I hardly order books online), but I don’t believe it’s more commonly used than bol.com. It also appears to be ‘books-only’, as opposed to bol.com, and if we do so, what step is next, change it again next year? It may be best to stick to what’s used in en-US and use sites that are more common locally, i.o.w. like we do now.

If you’re talking about adding YouBeDo, that’s another story, but I think it would need a very good reason to include it by default instead of offering it as a downloadable search plugin.

I see one good reason: http://www.youbedo.com/cms/page/item/hoe_youbedo_je (NL)

In contrast, bol.com just focusses on making money http://www.bol.com/nl/m/service/over-bol-com/index.html

Well, of course it is not more commonly used, it is quite new.  But we can support them by doing this.

Ah, yes, that might be a problem.

I see no reason at all to stick to what the American version does.
i don't see (at this moment) a good reason to change this searchplugin so i mark this as wontfix
