Wow, over 1,000 people have been given 'guest poster' status. Who knew this would be such a big feature?
With guest posting, we've run into an issue though, which Ichigo first brought up.
If I make a WORLD and SomeGuy posts to it, then how should we handle the update?
- Option #1: Only people subscribed to me see the update because I made the WORLD
- Option #2: Only people subscribed to SomeGuy see the update because they like what SomeGuy writes
- Option #3: People subscribed to both of us see the update - but if you're subscribed to both of us then you'll see that same update appear twice on your list, as coming from two different member names which might become confusing
- Option #4: We let you subscribe to WORLDS and show WORLDS updates, but if we do that, then do we stop showing WORLD updates for members?
What do you think? I'm leaning toward allowing WORLD favoriting and we can link people's favorite WORLDS in their portfolios too.
UPDATE: I've implemented option #1 for the time being.
How is the site's speed going for you?
We took EVERY measure to make sure our site's speed was blazing fast. I spent months researching to find the best new host. I made sure all our code was scalable. I invested in servers 300% more powerful than our old ones. And then by some EVIL coincidence, one of the major internet providers, who our new host happens to use, suddenly has major problems resulting in severe on and off speed issues. I feel like all my experience is worthless when we have to deal with this.
Our host tells us that since the problem isn't directly their fault their hands are tied and don't know how long it'll take to fix. It's been over two weeks now--I really want to fire them and move on but it'll result in days more downtime which we can't afford. I HATE this.
As some of you know one of my guilty pleasures is that I love massages. Operating at less than 100% capacity I decided I needed a little rest and scheduled a 1-hour Swedish massage for tomorrow.
Sometimes I wonder, why didn't I found a website on reviewing spas? Press badges to conventions are one thing, press visits to spas are quite another...
I finished all of Solty Rei in only two days. That's 13 episodes / day...
(Yeah, I'm still bed-ridden, but I managed to do some improvements to the backroom early in the afternoon.)
I might still be unwell tomorrow...what do you think I should tackle next:
I spent 3-4 hours in bed today just watching Solty Rei, one of the FUNimation series they passed along during my trip there. It'll probably be a while until I'm at 100% capacity again so please be patient with all the site imperfections and my delays. So far I like Solty Rei, I'd give it a B+, it's just what I need right now.
A few notes:
- I'm disappointed in the Governor of my State
- I played a game online of Smash Bros Brawl and won second place. Sonic kept creaming me. I look forward to playing against a lot of Otakuites
- I want to thank the team for their patience
