I used to spend around 2 hours per day maintaining the Pinside, but recently the site has exploded and now needs way more time then I can put in (and by that I specifically mean monitoring rating reviews etc).
That's the main reason why I'm working on all sorts of features that allow user moderation. Using the large number of visitors to help moderate the site, that would be ideal. Hence the introduction of the TILT feature and possibly the "Was this rating comment useful? Yes/No" feature which I talked about earlier.
But building these is only one thing, these new features also need time to settle. The community must get used to them, and I must tweak them (TILT is a good example, it is currently not being used what it was intended for, meaning I need to tweak it some more).
And sometimes thing just don't work as I intended, a good example being post ratings. This will need simplifying as it is currently to complicated. I'm working on these things!
The ignore feature which i started this thread for is another idea, but I'm not sure if I'm wanna put a lot of time in it just yet. I'm not confident that it will solve the problem (people fighting eachother publicly) and maybe I should leave this to the moderators who are doing a stellar job keeping these issues to a minimum.
Today I worked on something way more fun, see if you guys can spot the latest small addition to the site
