We're developing a custom SharePoint web part that will allow our internal corporate users to vote up/down items. for various reasons, we do not have access to a database to store the voting data. Our current plan is to use a custom list to store the data. We're not expecting huge traffic but this list could easily hold hundreds of list items.
We're accessing the list using jQuery and SPServices and then building the page on load.
Does anyone have any experience using lists in such a way and what are the potential gotchas that we should be aware of with regards to performance, list size limitations, etc...?
