Cue the howling "nooooooo..." of Darth Vader. I just lost all my progress on a very special blog post just for you. But fear not, I'll rewrite what I was about to say. Basically, things are good. In fact, things are very good. We had a small blip on the radar last week due to our server instability - this is now fixed and we performed a tidy upgrade of our servers last night (the first of many to come).
In addition, we've now got a firm production plan in place to ensure our focus is on server stability and new features do not hamper our development. We've learnt three lessons from the last couple of weeks:
In other news, users have earned 1,790 gifts as of writing this blog post in March! This is absolutely incredible. Therefore we'll be working heavily on analysing our "points economy" over the next couple of weeks to ensure we can continue to afford our charity gifts. We currently have no problem but as we scale, it'll be hugely important to determine that we can actually scale our charitable giving with our purchases.
I have a sneaking feeling that reward ads will help support JellyChip for the next couple of months as we develop a userbase "critical mass" for surveys. Thank you so much for your support in wanting more reward ads and supporting us by using and abusing them! It means the world to us and allows us to continue building this wondrous app. Please continue to support our ads as it'll help us reach the promised land - more servers for more users for the beginning of REAL surveys.
A quote to live by today: "I think that success is making the most number of people's lives better... because we have a sense of purpose when we make other people's lives better."
