The site that we don’t talk about was kicked off early on Monday and wow – I got a bit overwhelmed.
Over 3,200 page loads. (The number of uniques were already anticipated) Granted, the number isn’t earth shattering for a site like that but keep in mind the small member base. Also considering day one of any launch is pretty hairy for any webmaster so, understandably, I wasn’t able to participate but only monitor and try to keep the site moving with as few glitches as possible. I made a mistake at first by not disabling the moderation and was inundated with email auto-generated by the system. The site is self policing so that shouldn’t have been the case – notifications are off now:)
Thanks to all that came! In short time I will be more visible and your suggestions will be implemented as well. I do consider the launch a success. Yes, there are some things that need to be streamlined but I it’s clear from the users and their contributions that it will become a great resource.
