Project Petaling Street is revived

Finally one of our major internet products, Project Petaling Street (PPS) has now been revived and is back from its dormant status. Some nasty individuals such as the Sarawakian asshole Alex “Anak Haram” Allied and another anonymous cibai from Penang were part of an illegal terrorist movement to undermine PPS’ credibility by accusing the owner of VCTech Network of extremism. We do not feel the urge to defend ourselves from these cyber-terrorists. Suffice it to say that three months ago, the script PPS was running on started to cause a lot of trouble for us and was hammering the CPU resources on the server it was hosted on, forcing us to suspend the account in order to stabilise the server. PPS is running on a dedicated server with a unique C-Class IP, and we have total control over the account. Therefore, the “Account Suspended” notice that some PPS members saw during this turbulent period was of our own doing and it was not because of any of the nasty rumours that the anonymous cibai from Penang was spreading about PPS.

PPS new layout

The new Project Petaling Street layout is working nicely and we are pleased with its current performance, although some tweaking and further addition needs to be done in order for it to be working at full functionality. We have kept advertising opportunities and aesthetics in mind, without sacrificing usability and performance. We firmly believe that user experience and monetising opportunities should and can go hand-in-hand together, and we have kept those two things in mind when developing the layout for the new PPS to its final completion.

We have been getting some good feedback from PPS users. Majority of users have expressed their delight and satisfaction with the current layout. We are happy to know that you enjoy the new layout for PPS and we pledge to serve you further as the end-user. Unfortunately, however, some people with an axe to grind have been going around spreading mischief and negative criticism towards PPS, for no other reason other than that the ownership of Malaysia’s first and leading blog aggregator is now under the management of VCTech Network. One can easily notice how unfounded those claims are. The changes are certainly not “horrible, painful for the eyes” (the colour scheme is in standard black text on white background layout), the content are certainly not “cluttered” (on the contrary, we may say that may be true for the previous layout) and there are certainly no “more ADS, ADS ADS” (what are you, a sourpuss?). Some people need to understand that PPS is not a charity and we have employees to pay their dues and web hosting does not come as a free service.

Look out for more improvements as we go along this journey to improve the services of PPS, the face of the Malaysian blogosphere!
