phlux bboard - idea

Home : Message Boards : PHLUX Misc. : idea

Don't get me wrong this site is FANTASTIC. I just had an idea though--what if you added a function like "email this site to a friend" or "recommend this site to a friend". I want to get my friend in Illinois to check it out.

Hi Amity.
I agree this site is great too. But Zach already knows I love it.
If Zach doesn't know how to do - or doesn't want to - worry about all the code that there is in making that function there is a site that gives simple html and does it for them. The website is:

I have one on my phlux site.

Hmm, where would such an item belong on a page? Would it be on every page, or only on a front page?

Is it really too hard to open an email program and type the message: "Hey, check out!" :-)

I dunno, maybe on the news page you could put "Recommend this site to a friend" and create a little phlux postcard or something to send to all the people.
Yeah Zach, we're all lazy-asses and we want you to do everything possible to make life easier ;).

Uhm, yea, along these lines... could you possibly have the site read all the new posts for me? I don't want to actually open my browser and click on the bookmark. I just want to know the new content. Maybe with telepathic technology or something? That would be great, thanks.

While you're at it can you make it so that it'll order me pizza? And if you could install a little spigot on the front of my computer that would pour beer, that'd be cool too 'cause then I wouldn't have to get up and go to the fridge. I don't know if that'd be a software thing or maybe a hardware addition... (Sorry Amity. Couldn't help myself.)

ok ok, it's not THAT hard to do it MYSELF...
anyway it is a great site and I am glad I can recommend it to anyone in the first place :)

I'd have to say for the record that this is one of THE most impressive web sites I've ever come across. And I'm not just saying that because its a site for my band. I'm saying that because of the intelligence and foresight on Zach's part that goes behind every aspect of the developements that are featured on this web site. Every stage of developement - every step of the way - Zach's expertise grant that even the prototype pages of this site will surpass many other sites final product. I have every faith that this site will continue to improve and surpass even more web sites of loftier acclaim. The future's so bright, we've ALL got to wear shades...

I think Cody is right as well.
A Phlux website. Huh. Who would have thought we would ever see the day?

The recommend this site to a friend is still a good idea.
