I think everything will be fine and the developer is really happy with all the new members. At this time, there are four of us handling the site and it seems to be fine. Maybe in the future we might need a couple more people, but this site isn't like what you are used too. It's a much cleaner and friendly site without all the silly rules that Ask has. We have rules but none of the time-outs and word filters that Ask had, so it's not that hard to keep up. No arguments and just friendly private conversations makes our job much easier. If everyone just follows the sites rules and there isn't any rudeness and such, all will run smoothly. It's a great family type site !
Is Blurtit.com capable (financially) to take on all of us at ASK and other sites that dissolved their sites ? We don't pay a fee to be here. Are there enough employees to handle so many new people ? Thanks
It's a good site. I hope it picks up more, especially with the hundreds of x-sodahead members. Im doing my best to promote it on the sodahead group on Facebook, which has about 350 people on it.
This site shouldn't take that much to run it honestly. It needs a dedicated server but if they just stick some advertisements up they'll get enough probably to pay the site off monthly. The thing is, once you ask people to pay...then you lose people. People don't want to pay to put their opinions on the web, and yeah, it's a one sided argument, because webmasters do need money for bills, it's a problem we have to address. I think if money is a concern advertisements would be the very first avenue.
