A Message From Jfrater
Hi all. This is the first time I have posted a note rather than a list, but I think the time is right. We are currently getting around 30 thousand visits per day and the site popularity is increasing constantly. So the time has arrived for me to ask you all to tell me what you would like me to do to improve the site. This is also a good opportunity for you tell me the things you most hate about the List Universe and the things you love most.
So, please use the comments to tell me what you want. You, the users, make a huge contribution already through the comments, and we constantly see new users saying that they love the comments. I have a few idea of my own for ways to improve the site, but before I spend money on developing these ideas, I need to know what you want; that is, after all, the most important thing.
Feel free to be completely candid. Don’t hold back (though I am sure you won’t if some of the past comments are anything to go by!) I write my lists for you and now it is time that you talk to me instead of me talking to you.
In case you are interested, in the last 3 months (since this site started) we have moved from 1.5 millionth popular site on Alexa to 35,771 thousandth most popular. On Technorati we are now ranked in the top 7,000 (from 4 millionth at the outset). I believe that the main reason for this is the enormous amount of great user comments, contributing to each list.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to you all; you are the ones making this site great.
