🚀 Selection Criteria and expected traffic / scaling strategies

The other day, I submitted my ChayGPT plug-in for consideration in the plug-in store. I’m uncertain about the specific criteria that determine whether a plug-in will be accepted into the store.

I’m also interested in understanding the potential traffic that my plug-in could receive if it is included in the store. My announcement on Reddit has already garnered significant attention, with 100,000 views and several thousand messages about helping beta test it. This response suggests that there could be a substantial user base for my plug-in, and I’m trying to estimate the number of users and plan for the necessary system scalability.

To address the anticipated traffic, my current strategy involves utilizing a Cloudflare load balancer in conjunction with multiple Python Flask nodes. This approach allows me to scale the system effectively by simply adding more nodes as needed.

Hey @ruv, getting added to the store today would not give much jump in traffic given that Plugin access has not been widely rolled out. We plan to share some of these details with the plugins that are selected in the next and forth coming rounds.

Also, to level set expectation, given some of the functionality your plugin provides, I would not be surprised if it does not get selected. The ability to randomly pick a public API could lead to some potentially bad outcomes for users. This is not an official response, just what my instinct tells me given our desire to keep users safe.

Rate limiting / oAuth are the other suggested scaling items.
