This announcement is most likely related to Darwis’ plan for #newkaskus, he’s been tweeting about upgrading Kaskus’ backend platform following the current technical problem he and his team faced. Darwis also indicates that the development team is currently building a new platform from scratch, custom made for Kaskus’ needs in light of higher scalability. This has been a big issue for Kaskus especially with the currently growing traffic and constant spikes from promos and other offline activities; their servers just can’t take it anymore.
Kaskus also starting to invite its several key users to try #newkaskus as beta testers and we currently have no info on when it will become publicly open for all Kaskus users. Let’s wait for the updates from Kaskus dev team.
