Development Complete, see notes below
The forum has been created, please use that for any ideas, suggestions or support. There’s a chance it might be used for app specific features at some point in the future but currently it’s just a forum for the community. If you’re on a mobile device it’s tapatalk friendly, so you might want to consider installing that app.
Create a feedit Online Community
What would be the benefit?
I’m not sure what interest there would be in this from the average day to day feedit users, but for those who use the more advanced features of the app (such as social feed creation) then I can see a number of benefits…
- Somewhere feedit users can help each other and meet some like-minded souls.
- Potential new features could be discussed with the developer.
- The potential to have a centralised location for social feeds, allowing for dynamic list creation within the app.
The creation of a forum wouldn’t be that difficult, it would certainly take a week or two to get it up and running but it should be relatively simple. Although it would require a registration/login, I’m sure it could be created in such a way where no personal details are required.
The only potential problem I can see is moderation. The content would need to be moderated and as feedit development takes up most of my free time, it’s highly unlikely I’ll be in a position to do that. If anyone is interested in becoming a moderator, feel free to apply via the contact form. Just give some details about yourself and why you think you’d make a good moderator.
Regarding the “centralised location for social feeds”, that would take a bit more work but I have a rough idea… The forum wouldn’t be publicly visible, it would only be accessible via login so the app wouldn’t be able to directly access that info. However, when using any online service to post up messages, the data is always stored in a database. What this means is, certain data could be automatically be extracted from that database (ie social feed details) and sent to a service which populates a publicly accessible file showing details of known feeds. The resulting file would be encrypted similar to a standard social feed, so only the feedit app can decypher the contents.
