Some of you may have noticed a recent addition to the homepage that allows you to request an invite code. At the time, I was doing invites by hand, which was not very fun. In fact, I think the work involved prevented me from wanting to give invites out.
It was apparent I needed some sort of invite manager. You know, sometimes the simplest things that don’t even have anything to do with your product can be more of a pain than implementing an actual feature. You’d think, “Oh, an invite system. I’ll just throw one together when I find some time.” But really there’s some workflow involved, setting up a database, several email notifications… just enough work that I ended up procrastinating.
That is, until tonight. So now, I’ll be sending out invites to a handful of you that requested. I’ll get invites out to the rest of you as soon as I’m sure the system works as intended. I don’t want to give too many out before we switch servers.
And yes, we obviously have a blog now. Hosted free at WordPress.com, just the way I like it. Though I have to say, the setup process wasn’t as quick and simple as it could have been. :P
