I like it! Megans right, very easy to use. One thing though, is there going to be a browse or search feature so you can find other groups?

Hi Louis!

Thank you for the kind words and for taking the time to check it out:)  We will have a search feature for finding items within a group (CF is great for this, yeah!)  but we are debating allowing you to search for other groups.  Whereas myspace facebook google groups and the like often group people together who otherwise do not know each other gagglePUTZ is about helping groups of people who already know each other.  You can only join a group by making one or being invited into one.  No soliciting.  But as I say it is a debate, why not both?

Thank you again!
John

Well, you might make it optional to the group site manager - if they want their group to be found, searchable by others: yes, or if they want to keep the group private, searchable by others: no

Hey Megan,

One of the considerations in the debate is minors.  Kids can make groups, my kids have groups with all their friends in it.  I don't want that searchable.  I wish there was some way to verify age online that way we could force a group to be private if the members are under 18 or whatever.  

There are other considerations too, we are going to be implementing a money exchange in a week or so allowing members to pay each other (great for member dues and such) using PayPal's API.  This gets dicey when you consider the privacy and security issues with all of that.  Included is a ledger showing what you have paid and to whom and why.

Thanks!
John

Wow! no kidding - I actually hadn't considered kids using this (in manager capacity) at all since I thought it would be a for-pay service - so will it be a for-pay service or are you planning to monetize it in other ways?

thanks, Megan

An age verify. hmmmm *thinks hard*

I'm going to come up with one. Thanks for the inspiration  Wink

I think megan has the right idea. Let them choose if its indexed or not. Most kids would probably choose to not have it searchable too.

Hey Louis,

Off the top of my head I was thinking that there would be no way to tell if you were under 18 but you could tell if you were over 18 if youcould tap into some Driver's license web service (ha!) or something like that.

But probably a national age registry web service where you verify you are an adult there and then that data is amde available in some API.  Anyway, that is as far as I got before being pulled else where, LOL!


Anyway, let me know if you make any progress:D

Hey Megan,

We are looking at other ways to make money.  We have added a new feature, a Market Place that pulls products from Amazon based on how you describe your group.  We will get some percentage of Amazon's profits from those sales.

We will also be rolling something else out, hopefully this week:)

Thank you again for your time and opinions:D

John
