Len, do you have the skills (or at least know someone who does) to create a Shadowbox app?

Let people tap the little icon on phone or tablet, and connect instantly to the discussion... 
Notifications on or off when people post in threads you're following....
Streamline PM function.
Other stuff.

Seems like that would be close to your skill-set, no?

app programming has some learning curve for me.
i’m capable of it, but how long it would take isn’t knowable,
until i climb that learning curve.

but i have my hands full for many months settling my Dad’s estate,
& finishing the renovations to my house.


so not anytime soon for me.


let me think about others.

 * Simon Smith might be interested.

 * the sbox currently has an RSS feed which can be read with notifications in RSS apps.   e.g. News on Apple mobile devices.  not sure if any of them can easily be packaged up to be sbox RSS feed only.

oooh hi!... it feels so nice seeing people on this thread :-O

I used to spend so much time here in my early twenties, trying to figure shit out.
I feel like a completely different person now but still check the box from time to time when I miss it, and realise I still need to figure (different) shit out haha.

It was and still is rare to find a place on the internet where smart and reflective (is that an english word?) discussions happened, so bringing some of the discussions back to life would be really cool!

enjoyed your periodic visit & all you posts back then.

yes, places like this are rare on the internet.

post & see what happens?
(note our current regulars don’t check in every day.)

at 68, i am still figuring new stuff out.
its become a cool part of the ride.

I drop in every now and then, I always mean to make a point of sticking around. I definitely miss the box, and the dollhouse chat

a way to bring it back is for you & others who miss it,
to start using it again.
to post something everyday.

a shadowbox subreddit could be an app friendly alternative?

maybe.   i don't know enough about reddit.

can it be set up like we are here:
posts/threads grouped into topics grouped into categories?

is a subeddit searchable?

etc.?

It is searchable, but you can't group topics into categories.
Users can create new threads and up to two can be stickied so they always appear at the top.

If you want to check it out more, Amanda is doing an AMA (ask me anything) on reddit.com/r/IamA right now!
