Quiz: How Many Comments are Awaiting Approval at ProPakistani?

Moderating comments has become a full time job at ProPakistani – currently I am doing this management myself, but looks, soon I will have to hire someone for this.

On average ProPakistani gets 130 approved comments a day – and these are other than those comments which are caught by Akismet as SPAM plus those which are not approved by me due to various issues that of course you know!

Just a Short Quiz – If you can guess, how many Comments (made at ProPakistani) are waiting approval.

The one with closest answer will get Rs. 500 Mobile Balance (as gift) from ProPakistani – kewl na ;)

Leave your estimates in below comments – This quiz will end July 14th – 2009 – 10 PM

Update: Salman Khan has won this Quiz – Results announced here

  • Well assuming that ProPakistani gets around 100+ posts in a month and gets huge traffic. I think around 900 comments are awaiting approval.

  • Hami

    None :D

    • very optimistic – i must say : – P

      • Hami

        Yeah Aamir exactly, the way you serve us with good info I made a conclusion that how can you stop our comments on your posts. But those spammers ruled out me :/
        — Even though I thought nobody will asnwer like mine, and I can win some special prize ..but Still in the end I loved the contest … :D

        • Hami – More contents are coming your Way – Be There!

    • I get little bots on my blog – rest are captured by Akismet. But i need to take care of those local (Pakistani) human Spammers – (ab)users : – )

  • GulRaiz Hanif

    less than 10….propakistani is quite efficient :)

    • what about those which are not approved? due to reasons (we know)?

  • considering how PP gets approx. 100 comments a day, I’ll say 500 comments are in the spam line.

    • hmmm – not a bad guess – but you need to estimate again : – )

  • 130

  • Usman Ali


  • Usman Ali


  • saad

    it will be round about 100

  • Baber Rashid

    i think u should publish only Top best 50 comments per day.. even u received 130+ comments.

    becasue READERs or visitors is first preference… u make ur site not for ur own to read.. Propakistani.com is for readers or visitors..it is easy to read top 50 or relevants comments.

    becasue many sites provide these type of data,,like pakgsm, funmaza.com etc..and visitors have a lot of choise to shift antoher site. so there is very tought compition,so u have to need to provide only relevant and necessary data IN LIMITED TIME OR SHORTER PERIOD>
    so its ur option QUALITY OR QUANTITY

  • Jadoo

    Weldone Salman Bhai!

    now what abt hiring someone to work in the team of Pro Pakistani?

  • khawaja muhammad shahzad

    well it depend on the comments that are forwarded if all are up to the level all of them should be included.because if some body wants that his or her comment should be published then he or she must fallow some social standards
    and here is responsiblity of organizers to publish only those comments which are up to the standards
    one more thing that i want to add up is that good and quality comments should not hide between unimportant comments.i mean to say that important comment should be at top

  • Damn you have more than 3.5k comments pending, are most of them spammy or just never got a time to look into them?

    • ahh most of them are spamy : – ), rest are in appropriate.

  • Saurooon

    Can i get a one small picture from your site?
