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!
