This latest release marked the beginning of several initiatives for GirlsAskGuys. To achieve the very ambitious goals we set for ourselves and this community this year, we needed to lay some groundwork.
We started preparing our platform for the mobile app so many of you are eagerly awaiting. As you may have noticed, GirlsAskGuys saw some down time and lower than average performance over the weekend and up until last night. Most of these issues should be solved by now.
Like Leonardo DiCaprio wisely said during his first Academy Award acceptance speech, it's easy to take things for granted. Consider notifications, for instance. It has become a staple of web and mobile applications. You receive multiple notification messages every day without giving any thought whatsoever as to how it works.
But for a very small team like ours, talented and dedicated as they are, handling all the aspects needed to create a notification system capable of working and delivering hundreds of thousands of messages daily and getting every little detail right in such a short time span is an incredible challenge.
Thanks for sticking with us through these turbulent times while we prepare for the great things planned for GirlsAskGuys. Calm waters are expected ahead, but don't worry, if a storm or two hits us in the meantime... we'll pull through!
