For you to give feedback to the Heartland moderators. Wish lists, fault reports, etc. You may get an answer, you may not. As in all things, it largely depends on how nicely you ask the people in charge... You're welcome.

Sorry if this has already been broached but any thoughts on enabling a direct "tweet" option to threads?

Right now it's possible to go the "scenic route" & tweet the url, but an "instant tweet" option would be awesome.
I see the official tweets & often go to see them, but to let members tweet any thread via a button would be brilliant.
Traffic would increase & new members may pop up too.
The same goes for the wiki.

Just throwing it out there...........


:D
Cheers.

Yeah I also don't feel the need for this stuff, just got some accounts for testing purposes. Recently I got a smartphone from my workplace and with that certain brand I feel like I'm dancing with the devil (^^@James) :lol: :lol:

Suddenly my real life people ask me to install this or that app so I can keep in touch kind of 24/7. But I'm still not interested to tell anybody of them my FB account - it just doesn't make much sense since they can't add me and I won't add them. I still have my private cell they can call me if I decide to have it turned on.

I think the logic is that there are some very interesting posts here & not everyone's logged in all the time, but may be following the HL twitter &/or FB feeds.
So if you got wind of a secret gig or (if hell freezes over) a new single etc. being able to fire it out into the twittersphere or FB-sphere (is that correct?) will give it quite a lot of attention pretty quickly.
It's all down to personal preference of course (I loathe Farcebook with a passion for example), but it can give the forum & its discussions the maximum attention (which I think it deserves).
The button clicking will only send the first few words & a URL, so people are led straight back to HL to read the whole topic.
Ergo: more people, potentially more discussion & more insanity

;D
Cheers.

Yeah - we also need to consider that more and more people are using mobile devices for this socializing tools and twitter/fb are already quite established in this mobile segment. One doesn't have to like it but from the perspective of a webmaster you still must face these facts and offer solutions in order to get in touch with new people and maintain the connectivity to existing users.

I've installed tapatalk @PD and so far it is used just by a very few people but the overall web statistic proves a growing part of visitors browsing with mobileOS.

Facebook killed a forum I recently used to frequent. Now I have to ring/email people to find out stuff.

TT is a handy little app for sure.
Forum runner's another one worth a peek at.

Forum Runners looks interesting too but I think I'm not gonna add another service until people start requesting it more often - there's already a bunch of phpBB + mod updates on the to do list :urff:
