BOSHrun.com has been up and running for 4 weeks now. The initial launch was successful, with only minor issues from a handful of users. This included routine things like lost passwords and activation emails going into junk folders.
The biggest problem since launch has been spam users registering on the site, once of which direct messaged a few users. This is obviously a very serious issue, and can cause huge annoyance for members. If the issue isn’t resolved quickly, it could cause members to stop using the site. I installed extra catches on the registration page, added report a user buttons and increased the spam security on the site. Since doing this, there hasn’t been a single reported problem.
I have also received a lot of positive feedback for the site:
I set up a forum topic on the site where members can give their feedback and ask for help if necessary. It can be viewed here.
Another notable element of the site is the design of the new shop. The minimalist design really shows of the products, and I’m very happy with the increased functionality of the shop (including adding in dropdown lists to select size and fit).
I’m very happy with the outcome of this project, and am interested to see how the site evolves with the increase of users and content being produced.
As of today, there are 197 registered users.
