Pokazywarka was originally thought as a simple service to be used by a small group of friends. Due to lack of such sites on the Polish market, there were a minor popularity expected. After its release, the popularity overgrown any expectations.
Fortunately, the service was designed to be lightweight (it was originally served on a shared hosting) and capable to hold short and high peaks of visits, in case of Slashdot effect for any user created document. After consecutive popularity rising (mostly among users of Wykop – the Slashdot clone for Polish market), the service was still resistant for the heavy load.
After two years of its evolution and moderately high popularity gained, OXE sold this service to Interia company group, one of the big internet companies on the Polish market.
