An equal member of the community

2006-01-30 02:15:43 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [ecomstation.ru]

People select an operating system by software which runs in it. More applications - more users are using the OS.

If you are interested in the development of eComStation, write more applications for it.

One more important task is writing of software reviews. Every new review attracts news users and causes new sellings of product (necessary condition for release of new versions)

For example, you can write an overview of:

  • Maul Publisher
  • Serenity Virtual Station
  • PMDownloader
  • InJoy Firewall
  • Weasel
  • Pixel
  • NetDrive
  • PMView
  • Personal Cards Manager
  • PMVNC
  • T&V HappyPlayer, CoolFM
  • ..

The threat to the open site

2004-03-09 16:39:10 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [ecomstation.ru]

www.ecomstation.ru site is working in open mode. Every visitor is free to keep his comment in the news stripe, articles, forums and reference books.

There is a negative effect in this principle of open site. Wreckers attack the authors of articles & news, use FUD and criticise active users without a reason.

Advices:

  • Don't clear yourself before wreckers;
  • Ignore any insulting;
  • Ignore messages published by anonymous;
  • Ignore languid users which are using ":-(" or ":-(("

Good news:

  • Quantity of visitors exceeds 600-1000/day
  • Quantity of published news exceeds 1000, quantity of articles exceeds 100
  • The queue contains more than 10 articles
