Couple things...

Patti has been fielding a lot of complaints and so have i from people who are taking advantage of this new feature we added which shows the top 10 most viewed in a state. Well haunts are trying to load up their views or something to trump everyone else including our paid advertisers. Well all of that changed today... if you look at the top viewed now in each state you'll notice you might not even see 10 haunts listed because any haunt who is NOT a paid featured listing no longer appears in the state top viewed.

Actually the way I wanted the new feature to work is to show the top views by featured then non-featured so the highest you can get if you are not a featured is lower than all the featured. Anyway I'm going to fix it so that we always have a top 10...but now if you are not a featured haunt you can NOT get the top spot no matter how many views you have.

Secondly, there was some complaints that featured listings in say Illinois would have non illinois haunts over the top of theirs because those listings have more trackbacks than say the featured haunts from that state. What we did was we made a new feature where you could put your listing in as many states as you wanted featured, without making multiple profiles so basically those profiles will get more views trumping all the rest.

Either way we fixed that problem so now NO featured listing say from Missouri who has a listing in Illinois (LIKE ME LOL) can be listed over a listing that is actually from that state without being from that state... I'hope I'm not confusing anyone. So in other words if you go to Illinois you'll notice I have more trackbacks and views than all other featured listings in Illinois however my listing will NOT appear over ILLINOIS listings because my haunts are not located in Illinois.

I hope that solves those complaints.

We are also adding MORE new features... all users will be able to comment on your profile itself simply by having a facebook account. The blogs we post you will be able to comment on them using facebook, it appears on hauntworld.com or your profile or whatever but they log in with facebook NOT creating an account on our system. So watch your profile for comments soon.

The poll system in your state... how do you get more votes? People asking me... yes you can't cheat I'm happy to report. However here is how you do it... you tweet that page or facebook that page to your account and ask your friends to vote for you. That is HOW some of these people have way more votes than you... they are asking people to vote for them every day. So please STOP the email complaints its VALID VOTES! That is HOW YOU DO IT! So now that you know you can do it yourself and get more votes. One post on your facebook will probably get you 50 votes in a day. Post on your website whatever but that is how you get votes.

Lastly, we are updating our blog so that we can feature POLLS in our blogs so here soon we will feature blogs on the front page of our sites with polls about scariest haunt in your state, across America best hayride whatever... look for those!

Also feel free to join our facebook page for Hauntworld and promote your haunted house. We already have like 1000 likes and we just started the thing... I think we'll have 100,000 before its all said and done. Join and promote your haunt... go here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/HauntWorldcom-Haunted-Houses-and-Halloween-Attractions/201746133173856

Last but not least I wanted to say that we are already planning an addition $20k worth of new features for our sites... we are going to just keep spending money on this site and we couldn't do it without your support so thank you!

On another note... I was checking our site traffic for this year and last August Hauntworld attracted about 270,000 visits August 2010 and right now we are on pace for 320,000 for August 2011. If we keep this pace up we could increase our traffic for 2011 by as much as an additional million people.

And btw, like I said we have moved servers to the cloud now without any doubt Hauntworld.com will always work!

We hope we can send your haunted houses lots of business this Halloween and understand everything we do around here to help your business gain business. We've spent pretty much EVERY single penny you've paid us to deliver!

Again thank you very much.

Again, how can I get access to our account since the original creator is no longer with us and would obviously have all the account info? Can you delete the exist HOH account and I create a new one??

Couple things... the one feature of listing features no matter how many views over everyone else is being modified again because its not working just right. It should start working right any day. Secondly if you are not a featured haunt views won't matter those who are featured will appear over you every single time. We are going to support our advertisers first.

As for the comment about Tennessee... last year I bought radio commercials in Memphis. I bought radio commercials in Kansas City, Columbia MO, Springfield IL, Indianapolis and many more cities 'believe it or not.

People travel to haunted houses now, and our site has always allowed for anyone to buy banners in other states and will continue to do so. My haunted house is only a short 3 hour and something drive from Memphis so we will promote our attraction in that area. The point is that we don't want our featured listings or some haunt in say Kentucky to appear OVER yours in your home state so that is why we added the new features.

As for the last question... contact Patti email her. She can help you.
