I was under impression that the site in its new format was kicked off on June 6 of last yeas but then I realized that it was May 27. So, these days we have one year since the new “audio” version of site was up and running.
Generally, I’m glad with the way in which my site is shaping up. I did not make any efforts to promote the site or to yield traffic within the site – it is not really the intentions of mine. Yes, I would like to see more divert spectra of posters but my primary intention is quality and honesty of content that I am not wiling to sacrifice for volume. Well, my objectives are not exactly “more divert spectra of posters” but rather better quality of the visitors and a higher concentration of usefulness. I made in past even some attempts to scope down the “social posting”, preventing the posters to use the site as a “community crowding” (no personal offences meant). My objective were that each post should have a value, worth to be mapped to the “Knowledge Tree”; it means that a post should contain an informative data. Many people out there feel with a “forum” everyone talk about anything. Not on my site. The articles on this site and the consequential and positional replies or juts the follow-ups on the specific interest-driven subjects. This is how I would like to maintain the site…
There is a small commerce section on my site that did not really meant to be a commerce and was designed by a request for a friend of mine with his far reaching intentions. This section did not go anywhere due to my friend’s further luck of interest. I do not particularly care about commerce part and nowadays the commerce section is what it is. Ironically the commerce section has the largest exposure to the search engines sand 6 of the listed items in there were sold.
Over the last 365 days 94 members jointed the site, which uploaded 821 articles. No one request for a membership was rejected. One member was suspended due to his impersonation. There was one poster on “public” forum (permitted to post anonymously) that was kicked out the site and his 2 posts were deleted. The person was juts an ordinary Internet idiot. Over the last year 2 threads were deleted from the forums due to a complete lack of visitors over those threads and any lack of interest to the subjects from me or from the visitors. No other administrative actions were taken within the site.
