Owning and running a public site (gamejam.org) which people are actually (almost) using.
I've spent a week of spare time hours building and adding features, which has been quite refreshing. In my day job(s), I need to worry about lots of problems which simply don't exist on a simple site designed to serve a few hundred people.
So far, I've implemented these features:
- Signup / Verification by email
- Diary / Twitter style microblog system
- Atom feeds
- Etag caching (only used for non-authenticated clients)
- Chat system
- Team creation, invites
- Polls, comments
- Member profiles
