Half Our Deen - Sign up page is up

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,


I'm excited with the progress of Half Our Deen so far. About two months ago, we decided to scratch what we had so far and decided to start over. The Half Our Deen project is the biggest budget I have worked on (about $32k) and so far they have programmed over 250 pages of code. Yeah, I could have just paid a few thousand dollars and got a vanilla matchmaking site like everyone else but that would be pointless.

My goal with Half Our Deen was to take what was out there and take it to another level. I basically listed everything I disliked about the other sites and decided to do those things completely differently. If the other sites work for you, then don't waste your time with Half Our Deen, but for those who want something completely different, then InshAllah I think Half Our Deen is going to be nice surprise.

Yesterday, we put up the email notification page up for those who wanted to be notified when the site launches. The link to the site is http://www.halfourdeen.com

We're on track to launch in June InshAllah

As far as future ideas, the site will be linked to the Half Our Deen blog where you can post your ideas/suggestions inshAllah.

Suggestion:

maybe you should have a "report abuse" icon on you blog, so that we can easily report vulgar posts such as the one above (the one by anonymous on March 20, 2010 5:09 PM)

It's interesting that you mentioned Vanilla; as it's scent reminds me of my uncle from Texas.

thank you for all the comments.

to answer our question regarding why we scratched it the first time...

we launched the site for one day and then shut it down the same day because of numerous reasons. one of the reasons is because the server couldn't technically handle the amount of people. another reason is that we discovered some of the coding was not up to par. so the same day we launched it, we shut it down and refunded everyone (even though no one asked for it).

We ended up losing thousands of dollars in that one day.

I told my business partner that I much rather lose thousands of dollars than to lose the trust of thousands of people.

Then we decided to drop our current programmers and hire the best programmers we could get our hands on and of course that came with a big price tag. ($22,000). I told my partner if the site is solid, then people tell others about it so lets build it the best we can and let the product sell itself InshAllah. In Jan we started building it and so far hundreds of page of code has been done. We are on schedule and looking forward to launching in June, InshAllah.

All we can do it put in the effort and try to do it the best we can. The success we leave in Allah (swt) hands.
