kirtsy is a social media platform of pure goodness.
Kirtsy.com experienced rapid growth in last a year with 50,000+ active users and 1,30,000+ published news. Since Vote buttons often distract people, Kirtsy.com desired a better alternative. Moonrank team formulated innovative ranking system based on page visit, later on referred as Silent vote
. Moreover, visitor might un-vote the link if the content did not qualify. In worse case site could be marked as Spam. New site identify votes by Unique IP and therefore lessen hassle of registration. To protect news submitters from spammers we added Email verification system as another small module.
Kirtsy introduced concept of Editors
. Editors are senior users who may directly publish news from upcoming pool. Since Editors are selected by users vote they act like senators and make the site more useful. Moonrank provided Ajax based interface and editors modules . Moonrank also developed new database tables to record Editors biography and full picture.
Moonrank believes in integrity of Pligg system so all the features are tightly integrated with Pligg API inside separate modules. Another advantage is these features can be turned on or off anytime from admin panel. As new features were released the site traffic almost got doubled every month. Kirsy newsletter
, expressed: We Kirtsy chicks cooked up this redesign over coffee one morning and produced a very rough sketch of what we wanted. We sent that sketch to Moonrank and POOF! They delivered this website -- a complete restructuring of the code behind the curtain -- exactly as we wanted it. So they're also mind readers. We could not be more happy with them and their work and we strongly encourage you to pay them a visit if you ever need help with a Web 2.0-ish endeavor of your own.
