Well as i'm sure most of you guys who will read this blog already know, I finally launched my flagship questional.com on February 9th. Been in development with it since early November 2008, and I have dedicated about 8-12 hours a day on it. Now that it is finally released, I thought I would be able to breathe a breath of fresh air, but oh no there is so much more to do/think about. I knew that after release I would be the one responsible for keeping the server online, making updates, keeping security up to date, but its a lot more than I thought possible.
Our second day online I felt it necessary to get an IP Ban tool working, just in case we had attacks on the site. Well at night time, a team of a couple users decided to do just that, and unfortunately my ip ban tool was not the most efficient. I ended up working from 9 am to midnight, then having a 2.5 hour deletion fest with people wan
Gimme those AVVIES! The website that I am developing (questional.com) is going to finally be released Feb 1st! While that is very exciting for my team and I, we are working to make the site super easy and accessible to all types of users. For that reason, we realize not all members are tech savy or have the ability to make their own avatars.
Because I do not cherish the thought of a new website having hundreds of users with a "no avatar" type of avatar, we put in a feature to allow users to choose an avatar from a list of already made images.
This is where you guys come in!
Send your old/unused or even new avatars my way that you can donate!
The avatar stipulations are just like neos as I love their size of 65 X 65 pixels. The only thing is that you cannot have any stock in your avatar as I (and probably you) do not own that stock image used.
Here is a preview of the above feature if you do
Intro / History So I figured it would be fun to keep a blog on here about the launching of my flagship website http://questional.com I'm not going to go into too many details on the site because I gotta keep my trade secrets, but I will say that its an even bigger and better version of yahoo answers & answerbag. I'm actually hoping that its going to be my permanent retirement fund, but we'll see. Even if it just gives me enough income to live off of ($1500-$3000 a month) I will be ecstatic.
Logo Mock 3 Anyway, I just wasn't 100% cool with the logos that I put up last time. They were nice, but they just didn't make me feel "WOW". This is a logo my head administrator is going to be getting his whole side of his car detailed with, so its gotta be snazzy. Anyway, without further ado here is what I call "mock 3".
(Actually its pictured above, still some bugs to work out with blogs -_-)
Hey guys! I have some prototypes for a website that i'm working on ( http://questional.com ), and I need some help choosing my logo! Gimme some feedback! Feel free to leave comments here, or directly on each of the images link! Thanks!
