JillMurphy: That is what they do at epinions is
Corin: E-pinions do it to a certain extent but
not to our intended level
Necropolis: Personally I think "proportionally
massive" rating powers is rather worrying. All people have off days
etc. It is certainly not democratic.
JillMurphy: Corin is referring to some members
ratings carrying more weight than others people
ScotGirl: yes fine corin - great idea - but it
may create a sense of 'them and us'
TheKnight: Lordpercy asks, how would the decisions
on who gets these new tools be made, by commitee?
Necropolis: I've been asked if you could give an
example to illustrate, and also when is this likely to start?
Corin: well, there is still a long way to go before
I can get more precise - these are still notions and there is much
to be done before it becomes reality
Andy_ArT_Trigg: Democracy involves giving people
Corin: Andy - spot on ... the power need not be
visible ... and sometimes them and us works . . someone has to take
control from time to time
Corin: ...like the lovely emma - how we miss her!
TheKnight: Is she still due to return Corin?
Corin: Well, we hope so but she has to do her final
TheKnight: Have we another Topic? I think BH had
Necropolis: BH asks: the dooyoo website has become
very slow recently, what plans doo dooyoo have to upgrade? He feels
this fault prevents some potential new talent from writing
Corin: The speed is being worked on - again - the
K2F on this site is never slow! - it uses a different server
TheKnight: We can't see crowned opinions on the
klik2fit sites tho Corin and the advanced search doesn't work either
Corin: It is true - but we are still only 6 months
old and paying a million euros for a new server is out of the question
for the time being. The site isn't always slow!
TheKnight: Thanks, that helps us put it into context
Necropolis: BTW 1m Euros is about £595,000 (I think)
Corin: another topic?
TheKnight: Lordpercy asks: Corin will DooYoo continue
to pay for opinions / reads in the future as the membership grows?
Corin: Paying for opinions will continue for the
foreseeable future. The more PIs and members we get the more potential
we have to earn, same with reads
TheKnight: (PIs equals Page Impressions, everyone)
lily7star: so the payments *may* be discontinued
in the future?
Corin: No, there will always be payment - if we
are vast though the reads will go throught the roof and so even
if we drop, pond for pound a good op will earn you more
Necropolis: And crowns are not going to go away
(although I am the only to want that)?
Corin: Crowns are here to stay and have been raised
to 1000 miles
JillMurphy: Many are asking will the Premier Opinions
idea be extended?
Corin: Yes is the answer - but not yet
JillMurphy: Many are saying they dislike the page
for Premier Opinions.
Corin: Me too, it is ugly! We are trying to get
a better system devised
JillMurphy: They feel it should be more prominent
too Also searchable.
Corin: When the new community area arrives, we
are going to be able to have many more functions to do this sort
of thing. I am trying to kick Jon to make it at least filterable
by name, cat etc . . . . but this is actually quite a tough one
to get past him - - he likes other stuff like getting the speed
TheKnight: I can see both sides, speed is good
provided it gets us where we want faster .. :)
Corin: yep ... we have a very complex back end
that will continue to work when we are enormous ... scalability
takes a load more skill than pace in the short term!
