IS this still being developed?

Postby FW4 on Sat Jan 12, 2008 2:32 pm

The homepage (still) says it has 850.000 entries.... but I've seen that for at least a year now.

What's the progress on the amount of entries, AND on the accuracy/correction of the existing ones?

My experience gives it a 50% accuracy level... which his not fantastic...

Let me know!

It is still being developed yes, albeit a bit slower than I'd like. We've been doing a lot of behind the scenes work this past year and carefully, since we really don't want to break much of the backward compatibility since there are so many mash-ups and plugins now.

It's hard to track the accuracy because we have no way of rating the data. The "next version" of the system has a thumbs up / thumbs down sort of rating for each block which will help give us a metric for the accuracy.

I'll update that number on the front-page - I agree, it's been a while :)
