It really depends. Sometimes I really get in a groove and can be actively engaged in something for hours. It has been very up and down for me this year though. I have gone through periods where I’ll do 8-9 hour days with very few breaks for weeks at a time. Other times I’ll go through periods where I’ll probably only get in 4-5 hours of real work a day. I’m currently going through one of those periods.
I am also not a legal expert by any means so I am not going to weigh in on that part of the discussion. However, I do know that other sites with a similar anonymous posting concept, such as Texts From Last Night, have been around for ages.
If I were you I would put up a “terms and conditions” page as this will outline what users are agreeing to by using/contributing to the site.
Today is a good day
Ha this is a really cool and fun little site, nice one. I left mine
To my fellow authors who provide support via email/forum/ticket system etc: how often do you respond? Do you only address each question once a day? Multiple times per day? I know a lot of authors advertise a fairly standard 24-48 hour response time but I’m wondering how many of you will actively follow issues throughout the day and respond multiple times.
A lot of the things you describe are open source libraries that authors choose to include in their themes. For example http://caroufredsel.dev7studios.com/ is a commonly used carousel that is both MIT and GPL licensed.
There are also a lot of libraries for sale on CodeCanyon that do what you describe. Maybe you’re searching for the wrong terms? I can’t link items directly but if you do a simple search for “carousel” on CC you will find a lot of stuff.
I think the important thing to remember here is that the buyer dictates the market. The style of site you are describing is extremely popular right now and the sales of the various themes that fit this style reflect that. Website design trends come and go, and what is popular right now may not be relevant in a year or two.
On the flip side there are also a ton of great “unique” themes (I put that in quotes because the term is quite subjective) in the market so there is truly something for everyone. So ultimately yes there are a lot of similar items right now, but there are also a lot of great themes that don’t follow the same mold.
I use GreenPaw and I really like it. Keep in mind it doesn’t have push notifications which is great for me if you’re looking for notifications this isn’t for you.
I would also love this option, especially during weekends and holidays.
