Saturday, July 23rd, 10am — Noon

FeedTacoma Town Hall


Join me (Kevin) at Amocat Cafe to talk FeedTacoma. My work at SiteCrafting has earned me a community service sabbatical and, well, I'm going to use it to work on FeedTacoma for a month this August. I'm already planning a re-design (graphic designers: email your portfolio to kfreitas@feedtacoma.com) but there's plenty more I want to do but the more feedback/idea the better!

I'll be gathering my thoughts (and yours, hopefully) from 10am-12pm. Feel free to stop by then to drop off your $.02.

If you can't make it please leave your comments/feedback below!

A like and unlike button right of the comment. With no signing in necessary.

- multiple page creation on the blogs/comics (e.g. about page, store, whatever)
- basic brand/style controls like twitter

- ability to embed donate buttons and stuff

I don't know about like/unlike, but I like the idea of being able to collapse a comment.

How about a reply option for a comment. Like the tnt does. They onset the reply on a different margin n' stuff.

Many good suggestions here.

I would add a button in the comment box for people who wish to upload an image. I know other people already know how to do this, but some people like myself don't understand it. Craigslist has this function.

feed tacoma has a store/shoping function.

maybe integrate it more with the blog or comic sections..

"insert store item' or something.

option for email alerts?

@Fredo -- That's come up twice and will be there with other enhancements to make commenting easier/richer. Thanks!

@RR -- Email alerts and more blog customization/pages, definitely! Not sure what to do with FeedTacoma Shops. I still think it's a great idea for local businesses to band together and easily get online but there's just something missing... Me going door to door to market? Hmm...

shops are lonely off by themselves. can try integrating more with comics... I want to buy BEAN TOWN merch!

Of course, I'm out of town for this.

Regardless, I'd LOVE to sell some Bean Town merch to RR and his 317,000,000 friends.
