Announcing the all new IndiVine 2.0!
It's finally here - thanks to everyone's ideas, inputs and suggestions here, we're super happy to bring you the new IndiVine! Freak out and fill up the categories with your blog posts - and vote away!
As always, you guys will be instrumental in IndiVine's development, and the next few days are crucial while the system stabilizes. Do send in any bugs or feedback you have so we can track everything on this topic.
A special thanks to Vipul Grover and the gang who pushed us to do this. Personally, I think it's something IndiBlogger badly needed - a fact I never would have realized if not for the forum!
For those with questions about how it works, do read the faqs.

Overall, the new IndiVine is really cool.. just loved it
Hey Vipul, your handsome face is plastered all over IndiVine!
Will look into the categories tomorrow!
Here’s my post on IndiVine 2.0 http://vipulgrover.blogspot.com/2009/08/presenting-all-new-indivine-20.html
I submitted a few as well. The feature's quite slick I must say
Awesome, all credit to Renie. And keep the suggestions coming. We are extremely interested in feedback, criticism and appreciation :). It keeps us going!!!
I love this new feature. Just submitted a few best ones I had in my queue!
I love the way Indivine is integrated with Indirank. I hope my rank improves now
we all want our ranks to go up...dont we..:)
But i need a secret to make it happen faster;)
wow...the indivine is great renie..... I never expected engineering and sports will be added to indivine.its great....
kudos to renie.... http://ballat.blogspot.com
The new Indivine is awesome!!
I already added my latest blog post. So fast and simple. I love the fact that its post specefic. That way none of my articles go unnoticed. Thanks indvine makers..whoever you are.
You guys rock!
I have one doubt renie....
If i promote a post... The post gets two points..... But still some post have 7 and 5 points.. how is that possible? http://ballat.blogspot.com
From the FAQ's:
I voted once, but the count increased by 2 points. Is that a bug? No, that's a feature of IndiVine. The IndiVine voting system is integrated with IndiRank, where a vote for a higher ranking blog gets more weightage. Let's take for example the blog gujiligalaba.blogspot.com having an IndiRank of 55. Every vote for posts from this blog will have a value of (1 + .55 = 1.55). Votes are rounded off for display. All fresh entries on IndiVine start at 0 votes, regardless of the IndiRank.
So if higher ranking blogs get more weightage..what about lower ranking ones... even thought they have good contents due to less weightage they might get unnoticed right??
correct me if I am wrong... just curious to know more about that point system...
That's right Shankar... the logic behind it can be found at the discussion here. (if you can find it, it's a long thread!)
Renie.. I saw the whole discussion you guys made... I missed out such a nice discussion... I now understand ur point of HR... thanks to vipul for making such good suggestions...
Thanks everyone, it's awesome knowing that IndiVine is starting to look like a genuine success. I guess this is the next big thing after the forum and IndiRank!
We just added facebook and twitter buttons so it's easier to share the articles you post or read.
good work renie... and where can i find the facebook and twitter buttons???
When the idea first rolled out I thought it was going to be a complicated interface .. thankfully Renie can think only as an 8 year old kid and I would connect that with the ease of use! he he
Anoop , that's the advantage of being a computer game player
Yeah thats true.. though I beat him up all the time in Age of Mythology he he .. you should see his hippikons run when I chase him with wolves he he
Hey Anoop, I still have a few recorded games which tell the real story... are you a big fan of public humiliation?
Hey Renie.. isn't the rounding off system just too wide.. By just being a rank here and there(IndiRank 49, say), u loose a cmplete vote!
Hey dude, the rounding off is done only for display on the screen... the system does not round off anything and all values are maintained as is, and it is the precise values which are used to set the order of posts on IndiVine...
Ohk got it.. mayb u shud clarify tht in faq's 2 prevnt any othr ignornt prsn like me frm bothring u again on tht account :)
I have been trying almost a day long to submit my post in the indivine and always i get an error while posting.
Is it a problem which i am facing alone or is it a common problem. If its a common problem. please report here.
The mods can take action about this.
*Claps* IndiVine is cool.... bt me little confused.. coz I hv poerty blog... so I posted 2 or 3 posts from my blog according to Topics... like Festivals = I posted Rakhi poem...
bt I want to post some more post like I hv written 1 poem for myself... how I lived and now how I want 2 live... so.. can u guys plzz suggest me.. where do I post?? *confused*
Hey khushi u cn post it under Offbeat and Personal--Poetry if u dont find any other suitable category.

I didn't knw what IndiVine meant previously, but the new look nshook me off!
Great work mate!
And Vipul, I have no words for you!
Hey pawan, the man who plays with wrds all d time.. is out of wrds.. OMG tht means sumthing. lol. thnx a lot..
renie hs pulled it out beautiully. All d credit goes 2 him nd his hardwork.
Super Cool Feature, and I am already getting the results.
Hi! It's taking ages to post on Indivine.
Infact its not getting posted at all! I mean the processing is taking so much time, with no result!
Is this problem unique to me??
Hey Shilpa, what's the URL you tried to submit? Did you try re-submitting it after the first time?
Shilpa...I think it might be unique to you.Because I could post 28 articles within half an hour...Its very fast indeed....
Faster than a click indeed! May be it could be some problem caused due to the internet connection! - sounds lame, but just a guess...
