I hope that I may have answered the more urgent and hanging questions to all those who have joined the PTB system.
Why still in beta?
As of today (just 5 days old), the project is still in beta. Beta in the sense that I am still considering a lot of factors for this to really push thru publicly:
- Acceptability. Do I have enough credibility (to bloggers) to put up and maintain such system?
- Scalability. Will the server I am hosting this system be able to handle all the page requests (Apache connections) and mySQL queries. Tracking 5 very popular blogs could even stress a server more than hosting 200 regular blogs.
- Standards. I am still
workingreconsidering on the standards or metrics to use in ranking. So far, the one in place seems fine. I coudl tweak and do a hybrid rating later on, if possible.
- The system that I use now is also in beta.
- Time constraints. I’m already lagged on several personal and commissioned projects.
