The Last 4 Weeks

Published June 21st, 2011

We’ve had so much on our agenda in the last few weeks that we totally abandoned our blog. No good!

So, first a run down for some cool numbers: we flew past 3,000,000 visits and 25,000,000 pageviews. That’s no small deal. However, combined with 60% month-to-month growth this is expected.

Just yesterday we had our highest traffic yet — over 144K visits and over 1 million page views. You can imagine our excitement!

On the feature list, we are working hard on several things: better administration panel to more effectively fight spammers. As we get more popular, spammers try to sneak their ads and other irrelevant content. We are ready to fight with them vigorously!

Some nice touches have been made to the Uploader — now, if you try to close or click another link, you’ll have a message box warning you of unsaved content. No more accidentally lost uploads!

We had introduced an uber-cool navigation a week ago, but had to quickly pull it down, because it quickly (as in 30 minutes) became very popular, and it wasn’t tested for. The whole site almost stalled, so we removed it. It will be coming a bit later, complete with more shortcuts for previous, next and following.

Back to the shortcuts, we introduced two of them: (L)iking and (F)aving. So go ahead and press those tiny cute buttons to perform magic from your keyboard!

We also introduced NSFW switch (on Popular & other pages, as well as in Settings > Site). If’s a nice thingy that prevents photos, categorized as nude, to be shown while you are at home with family or at work. Don’t expect it to be perfect, but we’ll be adding crowd-sourced ways to manage such content. It’s going to be pretty!

On the backend, we’ve optimized our CSS a lot, fixed (broken for some) Facebook connect, added more aggressive caching (so, faster load times), and rewrote literally thousands of lines of code (now, it’s down to hundreds, and still working great!).

What’s next for us? Well, taking the site from thousands of users to tens of thousands wasn’t a small feat, considering how intensive some of our calculations are for the users (scoring, voring, etc.). Now that we have crossed the 100,000 users mark, we are on to a whole new level. A lot of optimizations and improvements are going to be in the backend, invisible to users, but it will help us grow smoothly.

On this weekend, we've got a surprise gift from Yahoo. Four mugs with a Yahoo! logo on them. Well, sipping tea from them is actually quite pleasant.

And once again, thanks for all the love on twitter and blogs! We are still a very small team (actually, just 4 of us), so we work extra hours and will go extra mile to make 500px a home to world's most prominent photographers.

I have found a lot of useful information from this platform. I must say that sharing your thoughts with one another is an easy way to relax yourself in the daily hectic routines. Each time a description of the change, there are always lots of talk about it anywhere. These are not exempt. I mean one must be up to date with the day to day change in the environment and in the technology as well. In my personal opinion, the world is turning into a global village and now you can get a lot of required information by just a click while sitting where ever you are.
