Hey @JustinScheetz

Open Source the beast :) wack the code on github, majority of people who use the system would be proficient enough to fix/add new features themselves.

You could deploy updates from github yourself if you still wanted to host it, or orgnaise for someone else to continue hosting the original product if you no longer can.

If you can’t find a buyer, then consider that option rather than just flicking the switch.

Good luck!

I agree with @dtbaker. It would be awesome if the community could contribute. I know that i would love to do so. A project manage would be the only thing needed, to keep all things in place, but i’m sure many would like to improve the project and fix bugs.

Yep, me too, I’m thinking to contribute to it for months (for free of course), but “authorship” is always a pretty complex thing and I never dared to suggest it publicly.

Anyway Open source for a commercial project like this perhaps is not the best choice: Justin & co would loose the majority of their incomes. For this reason I proposed a sort of fee to pay to put hands on the code and host the system by myself.

The important is take a decision and go on! ;)

I continue to adore the irony of this discussion’s title.

However, I give @JustinScheetz a lot of credit for trying to make Ticksy work. Long-term it’s not a business I’d want to be in because Envato could (miraculously) get their act together someday and make your product obsolete.

You should have put (miraculously) between triple bold tags :D

@JustinScheetz Have you considered running Ticksy on Google Apps Engine, if I understand correctly it is written in PHP, right? PHP is supported now in.

That would solve all your scalability issues and relieve you of all server management, once set-up properly.

Apologies if I’m off base, here.

Cheers.
