10.000.000 downloads and more...

10.000.000 downloads and more...

It's been a while since we last talked about numbers but we have two reasons to celebrate today. The first one is as you might have noticed we uploaded the new design along with some new features, we decided to skip the alpha testing and do the beta live with all of the site visitors. The new design is not only design but improvement in functionality. There are several new things on the site like user accounts, email notifications on comments, Facebook connect functionality, pulse and more... but there are many features that still need work and the development team is testing them as we speak. They will appear on the site very soon. Ops, I forgot to mention the help for all the people that have been posting comments on certificate problems and not looking into the FAQ section first, now we have added tips so before you post your comment about a problem we remind you to check for a possible solution.

Now, the second reason. Just as I was preparing to write this post, I noticed the download counter. WOW!!! 10.000.0000 downloads so far and only today we have served over 40.000 themes, that's one theme every two seconds. I just hope the server holds until the end of the month cos today it was running a bit slow with all the traffic pouring in. As of April 1st we hope to get some hardware reinforcements with the financial help of a few friends. If you are a developer and you are wandering about the theme developer bonuses we promiced, everything is OK, I just checked and it seems like babi and IND190 are getting a bonus this month and AJ23 and Sauromatum are on the way.
