MTV UK goes Live!

MTV UK launched their new site August 1st, powered by Drupal. I played a significant role in the development of the site: theming, custom modules, client support, and of course enhancing the webform.module, which started the whole affair. Working with such a large, global company I expected that I would be dealing with humorless suits. Much to my surprise, our company contacts are super-cool. And since their Brits they say cool things like "Cheers" and "Righto". Awesome.

MTV is using the new powers granted by Drupal to determine programming for their new television channel "MTV Flux", where users contribute their own content. Based on website feedback popular content is then played on Flux.

Using the user feedback.. thats an idea!

Great news for Drupal users.

Its good to see user rating actually being used for something cool. Is it one of those cyclical things where the 'most popular' are shown on the front page and so get more and more ratings because more people see them? Cool concept and good work!
