I hope cscgal sees this because it was her response to the “Over 400 Members Hardly Any Posts” post that’s prompted me.
On my site members submit their favourite website and other members can vote for it. The plan is to build a list of the actual best websites on the internet as voted by the public.
Currently things like page rank, Links and Advertising budget are used to decide which is the best and that’s wrong!
So this is my go at democracy.
Initially I put all my favourite websites on there and then I went off looking for really good websites, the ones which are just good sites you know.
They were all in the New Releases section with 1 vote each.
So I created some fake users and voted some websites into charts, I wasn’t happy about this but I felt I needed to get the site populated initially so new visitors would find something useful.
The sites been going over a week now and I’ve had about 200 visitors, which I’ve worked for. Asking for critiques, posting on forums emailing friends etc.
The thing is they visit but they don’t vote? Consequently the site isn’t changing much and I don’t like that.
What should I do find more fun sites and get them into the charts? Or what?
That zwok game as been at the top for ages people email me saying it’s fun and addictive game and when I look they haven’t voted for it.
I despair. :sad:
The site needs to be moving and changing to be attractive.
