Ping.sg Forum Gets Some Light

with 2 comments

It’s time the forum gets some street lamps.

Ping.sg’s homepage now shows the latest discussions on our forum, which once known as the dark alley of the main site. Look out for the “latest on forum” box right underneath the shoutbox.

Do join in and participate in the forum. There have been some pretty interesting discussions going on in the forum, especially the thread that has just started by kevin on “Promoting Ping.sg“. Do join in and find out how you could also help out in promoting this community site.

Just in case you are wondering how to obtain an account to participate in the forum, easy, if you already have a Ping.sg account, simply visit your user profile page and activate your forum account. If you do not already have a Ping.sg account, erm.. what have you been doing?

And hi to all the new users that have just learned about us from Nexus 2007. We’re all nice people around here and feel free to shout if you need any help or just want to say hi.

Happy pinging!

Twitter and Shout

Well, shake it up, baby, now, (shake it up, baby)
Twitter and shout. (twitter and shout)
C’mon c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, baby, now, (come on baby)
Come on and work it on out. (work it on out) oooo!

Ping.sg has just got into Alexa’s top 100K ranking! As of today, we are officially ranked 98,890 at Alexa and surely we are still climbing our way up.

As a way to thank all the members for their continuous support, and partly because we have caught on the Twitter fever just like everyone else, we have done a little something fun specially for you. If you need more distractions in your life, subscribe to ‘pingsg_shouts‘ at Twitter and receive live updates of the shouts at Ping.sg txted straight to your mobile phone for free.

Happy pinging and see you guys at Nexus tomorrow for those attending.

Update March 26, 2007:
Sorry that we have temporarily removed Twitter integration to the shoutbox. Twitter servers seems to have slowed to a crawl. Once they’re back up and stable again, we will try for the integration again. Sorry to all who are following pingsg_shouts on Twitter. (Yes there are quite a few of us)

Update April 4, 2007:
We are pleased to announce that pingsg_shouts is back again! Not only have Twitter’s servers performance improved, we have also rewrote the shouts integration to make them mash more seamlessly. Have fun!

If You Like Numbers…

with 2 comments

It has been quite awhile since Ping.sg gets an update. The ideas sections are almost full with juicy ideas. We would love to implement most, if not all, of them as soon as possible but uzyn is currently tied up with his studies in the final semester. (To undergraduate to-be’s: Don’t do electrical engieering. The workload is horrible.) Thanks to all the Pingers for the continuous support and the non-stop pinging actions. We love reading all your blog entries and do continue to keep’em coming.

In the mean time, here are some numbers for you to ponder upon while uzyn is busy with his boring school projects.

No. of days since the launch of Ping.sg: 252
No. of registered users: 405
No. of registered blogs: 445
No. of pings: 10,350
No. of pongs: 80,983
No. of comments on forum: 171
A pleasant community of Singapore bloggers: priceless

Have fun and happy pinging!
