Frequently asked questions

Q: How can these questions be frequently asked when they were written and answered before the site was even launched and before anyone knew about it?

A: 😎

Q: How much does it cost?

A: For most folk, nothing.

Some features will be introduced which will have a cost, but they won't be needed to use the site as intended for the "target audience".

Q: Sooooo, what's the catch?

A: None.

I had - have - a need for a site like this, and found none. As such, this is literally designed and built to be the site I wish I'd found.

Q: Who's behind this? Who owns it?

A: Me (Mattt) :-)

I've been developing computer software, business systems and web apps (among many other things) for a very long time.

I'm also a bona fide user (look for me in Chat), so it's gotta be up to my high standards ;-)

Q: How did you do <insert interesting app component here>?

A: Have a poke around (and optionally ask some questions) over here.

The site itself is totally custom and hand built, primarily outta PHP and JavaScript / jQuery.

...But you're probably mainly interested in the chat functionality. It's also a completely custom, ground-up build. It's made of stuff like WebSockets, WAMP2, Ratchet, Thruway, and AutobahnJS. And a gutload of time, sanity, patience, perseverance and research.

Q: Can I / we hire you?

A: See here.

Q: Can I help?

A: Quite possibly :-)

At the time of this writing, I could really use a few good, sensible folk to help out with "concierge" and "security" stuffs. Basically hang out (a lot) in the chat "garden" and help those who are having trouble using the site, as well as attempting to councel troublemakers or deal with them appropriately should attempts to coerce them to behave appropriately fail.
