The growth here is accelerating. We're now adding 1,000 members every 8 weeks and hit 11,000 today. On an average day, this site does between 25,000 and 30,000 page views. We're closing in on 1 million page views per month.
I had lunch today with the executive team of Ning, the social networking platform we're based on. Features coming out over the next several weeks include:
- WordPress-style blogs. Much better authoring tools and design flexibility in the blogs, and across all text entry areas.
- Badges and better community feedback options for content. Thumbs up/thumbs down rankings, and the ability for community stars to emerge and get recognition. "N00b Ninjas" FTW!
- More design flexibility. The fixed-width columns and fixed-width overall site will soon be a thing of the past.
- Improved Leaderboards. We'll be able to get much more granularity in figuring out what and who is popular here, so the moderators can spot and reward great contributors more easily.
