Konkursiaki is a portal belonging to Media Service Zawada, one of the biggest publishers for children and youth. Our fruitful cooperation started in 2015.
One of the roles we have been entrusted is to take care of server performance as the portal is becoming more and more popular with almost 60,000 users. Backing up, analysing traffic and optimising database are our daily responsibilities. The maintenance of a large site is not easy, that’s why the team responsible for the service is divided into two groups. The first one performs administrative work, while the second one expands and creates new functionalities, among others:
- Creates new modules
- Implements additional games
- Changes interface
An additional challenge is to create a scalable functionality. The site was built in Drupal.
The target group of the site are young users along with their parents. Children compete among themselves on the list of winners by playing themed games based on their favourite cartoons such as: The Avengers, Mia and me, Minions, The Penguins of Madagascar, SpongeBob, WinX Club.
A game is assigned to each character and new contests are created with a sensational prize pool. Fierce competition gives the players sleepless nights when they try to beat their own score or the one of their rivals.
Every day, every site user has an opportunity to answer a question about the aforementioned cartoons. The greater the activity on the site, the greater the probability of winning the prize for the best contester of the year.
