We're 3 developers that aren't designers building a new web application that will transform the way users use forums again.
Ammar - Backend Dev
Amir - Frontend Dev
Farooq - QA, Frontend
The 3 of us will be responding under the user 'shoutreel', so you will see many comments. We'll try to put our names if we remember on our comments.
Our target audience are businesses and individuals who want to create simple online communities that are easy to use without any hassle to install complicated software like vBulletin or phpbb. We also want to integrate with mobile devices making apps for the iOS4 and Android market.
Simple is the key here. We would like something simple. One of our developers attempted a simple mockup of what we would like. You guys are the expert, so I'm sure you all will come up with something amazing. You don't necessarily have to follow what we made.
We do prefer a 3-column layout.
