All entries for Monday 05 September 2005
Looking through our stats we can see that there are a lot of empty blogs in the system. Many people have tried out blogs by just registering and not even writing a single entry.
We're going to tidy things up by going through and deleting any blog that is more than 6 months old and has no entries/images/favourites/comments/etc
As fair warning, we'll not be doing this for a few weeks, so if you want to claim your blog before it is deleted, just go and write an entry or upload an image. Even if your blog does get deleted, there is nothing stopping you from coming back and registering another one again in the future.
At some point in the coming months we will also be making a whole load of blogs read only. This will happen to blogs where the owners have left, this will prevent any entry creation/commenting/etc…
We're giving people a better welcome screen and email now when registering for a blog, so we hope that there won't be as many empty blogs out there this year.
We just rolled out a small update that includes one fix, one improvement and one new feature.
The new feature
We have upgraded to SlideShowPro 1.2 which has given us the ability to put nice little thumbnails in when you hover over the image numbers in a slideshow.
Commenting should now be a lot faster when you comment on a blog with lots of comments.
CSS is now properly included in the headers for the comment popups.
