    Just wondering if anyone would be interested in a droid social networking type site. With members, profiles, pictures,videos, forums, chat with devs ask them questions etc. I've been thinking about designing such a site but don't want to put all the effort forward if no one joins! If I do make the site, I'll need some moderators etc,but we can discuss that later :). Would anyone be interested in such a thing or is it just overkill?

    Well, we are a forum but we have all the things that you discuss including social groups, pictures, etc.

    How exactly would your idea be different from what we have here already? More like a facebook page?

    I think that's what he was going for, that or something like a myspace group.

    yes precisely. a site that's like facebook except its for droid owners. so you'd have a profile page, a wall, photo albums, video albums, you can add/remove friends, you can search for people that you know you can invite people, make events, chat with other members, etc. just a wider community for android users where they can meet and discuss android with other people. i didn't realize that droidforums.net has photo galleries etc so maybe it is overkill my idea. but i thought it would be cool to get people together for this

    no it's not a facebook page or a myspace group. it's a site all to itself. a social networking site for droid owners.

    ok it's really starting to take shape...this could be good...I've got a "Karma" system where the most helpful and frequent posters get Karma points, that way you know they're a trusted member of the site, got the usual social networking stuff, got a forum, got events, got live, integrated chat and chatrooms (no extra software needed). In a couple of weeks I will release the beast! ;)

    What do you need a forum for? We got this one. Why not talk to the admin about linking to this one as the forum for it?
