The initial feeling of being overwhelmed by a huge traffic spike from reddit is starting to slowly fade away and I am continuing to work on the site as before, although with a much greater commitment because people have shown real interest in this project.
I am currently working hard on completing accompanying back-end service which automatically ranks and pushes older posts off the frontpage (currently, rank is recalculated whenever someoneone upvotes or downvotes a submission), after which I will start working on features like being able to subscribe to subverses, private messaging system and additional moderator features and a public moderator log (so everyone can see which moderator took an action) and a whole other bunch of features what I have written down plus all open issues on GitHub (about 19 so far the last time I checked).
I am also talking with several investors and detailing out plans to incorporate whoaverse and things seem to be going pretty well at that end which will allow me to get even more time to technical side of whoaverse while coworkers deal with PR, economics and user support.
I will be mostly active in http://whoaverse.com/v/whoaversedev and I will not be able to follow all subverses and comment threads (you guys created about 360 subverses in a few days!) so please forgive me if I don't respond.
I am reachable by email (team (at) whoaverse dot com) in case you guys want me to deal with some urgent matter or if you just want to say hi.
edit: You can use #whoaverse IRC channel I registered on Freenode to keep in touch with other site users as a replacement for currently missing private messaging system.
edit #2: You can now subscribe to your favorite subverses. Listing of subverses (when you click the top right "more" link is now done by popularity which is determined by the number of subscribers a subverse has.
edit #3: A tip for newcomers: if you register a subverse, please proceed to fill in all the information required to attract your first subscribers, edit the CSS (go here for tutorials and help on this) and start posting the content you would like to see others post. This will encourage people browsing your subverse to start submitting content and engaging.
