"Battle Blog" is a classic ASP blogging engine written and used by yours truly. Originally written and posted in 2003, it was available for download until
around 2013 when I removed the download package. It was not circulating very much after Wordpress and several others came to dominate, and I had grown concerned over the various security holes that teams around the world
Its chief attribute over other blogging engines is that it includes built in democratic content controls. Visitors can vote content up and down which is functionality that survived its first iteration as a sort of "comment gamifcation" system where people were supposed to be able to "battle blast" comments that fell beneath a certain score.
While Battle Blog itself never lived up to wide use or circulation as a blogging engine, I am always proud to brag that these democratic content controls predated services like
Diggit and Reddit, if only by mere months. The success of those services proved how spot-on I was that people might enjoy or even get addicted by participating in such activity.
Today I use Battle Blog primarily for my own web publishing projects (you are currently reading this on a Battle Blog system) as well as offer iterations of it as a managed service under the auspice of my business Dave the Web Guy Innovations.
