About the SiteHistory
Around early October 2008, Dan was hard at work killing enemies on Unreal Tournament 3. Then after a pyrrhic victory, Dan went online to view some videos. Then he thought... "What if... users could get rewarded?" A virtual but amusing way, Dan thought. Then he pondered on the idea of what to get and give. For a while, he was stumped, then he thought of cookies. They were perfect! They were liked by most and it was used in everyday conversations as a treat. Dan then started to get to work on Cookyx version 1 and launched the website on October 25, 2008. Since then, Cookyx has been improving bugs and errors and keeping an endless supply of virtual cookies!. Please note that Cookyx, while it has many features (groups, forums, referrals, etc.), its primary purpose is one thing: rewarding cookies.
What is Cookyx?
Cookyx is a cookie-keeping place for your cookies. Think of it as a "Reward system". How it works out is that you'd post a video somewhere and in the description you'd put something like "If you liked this video, give me a cookie!."
Everything you see on the site is built and maintained by one 17 yr old human being. From the forum to web template to the profile system, created by Dan the creator, owner, founder, whatever of Cookyx. Cookyx hopes to bring you a place to vault your cookies received from friends and users-alike. Taking input from the community forums, cookyx transforms ideas into changes within days. The leaderboards are cookie-accurate. This means, everything you receive a cookie, the leaderboard automatically updates. There are 3 types of leaderboards: Overall, Daily, and Monthly. Can you get Number one?
Around early June 2009, Cookyx launched version 3. The whole template was re-designed and reworked. Each page was edited accordingly. Version 3 brought some features in and took some out. In the latest version, Dan changed and fixed a lot of website bugs and errors. As of late, Cookyx has taken out the ads.
Around early May 2010, Cookyx launched version 4. A lot of things changed. The most prominent feature was a wider and new and template. It sports a main color scheme of blue, white, and black. The version 4 feature came along with bug fixes and feature updates. A lot of the code, behind the scene, was changed for easier developing. Another update was the Cookyx API being released. Developers can now integerate Cookyx's data using simple HTTP requests. The group and referral features were fixed from any bugs that testers came across. Cookyx also had many more improvements which cannot be named due to the lazyness of Dan not keeping track.
