The good news today is that the beta testing round is moving forward to the second phase as outlined here, but first of all we would like to thank all the users who have helped us during phase one and we hope that things will proceed as smoothly as during phase one!(More)
After about 3 weeks of beta testing, things are going even better than we expected. We started the beta testing round with a few outstanding issues to solve and some others appeared during the testing process but thanks to the hard work of the core team and some outstanding collaborators, things are proceeding very well.(More)
Unfortunately all attemps to contact the registrar that now owns plogworld.org have been unsuccessul and it seems that they are not interested in even selling the domain. Usually this registrar sells expired domains through a Dutch auction system but strangely enough, plogworld.org is not available for sale. Our theory is that they are still cashing on in its popularity, since there still are thousands of links in google pointing to plogworld.org.
It is difficult to understand how people can have such a hostile attitude towards a free project, a project made up of people who have devoted a lot of their own time to create a probably the best free blogging tool.
Therefore, we would like to ask you to update all your templates, articles and links pointing to plogworld.org so that in the next update of Google's index, the situation is reversed. Also, in case anybody has a better idea please let us know.
UPDATE: There is a translated version of this article in the Taiwanese pLog site, here.
