Evolution of Factpile

Postby admin » Wed Sep 09, 2009 3:21 pm

As mentioned before, this site was orignally a 'rant' blog about all things – and it failed miserably. But that all changed with the infamous Master Chief vs Boba Fett match that I posted on Christmas eve of 2006. It made the front page of Digg and tons of traffic came for about 2 hours. Then it was over. Other posts were 'dugg' and after about the 5th submission, Factpile was banned from digg due to what they considered 'spam' from other members of the digg site.

So, the site continued to grow without the aid of digg, and then about a year ago, the site was magically “un-banned” from digg.

So what's the point of the story? Further proof that if you have a site with great content and passionate readers, it doesn't matter what other sites are up to- This site will continue to grow stronger.

And that can only be done by trying different ideas for the site – some will fail and some will work – so keep the ideas coming as we continue to make this site a unique little part of the web.
