Haha Avis! We have joked about this idea before. We sooo need a mobile version of the site and an app!

So, uh, who would like to volunteer to code it? :P

The phone app would be both fantastic and terrible (for my productivity) :lol:

oh lol!! So this idea has come up before!! If I knew how to do any of that, I would volunteer my time to make it, but sadly, I'm not that computer or technology savvy!! lol

Soleil, I agree... It would be terrible for my productivity as well... but, it would be so great to have!! I wouldn't have to sneak around at work so much to be able to post on here! lol... I could just click on my app when I'm waiting in waiting rooms for appointments, and post away ... I think it'd be awesome!!!!!!!

Not sure who would code it, but it's a great idea! I would pay up to 5 dollars for it

Simple little things would be the easiest way to do this :-) We need to produce something that is cheap and appealing so people will want it and easily be able to afford it.
Think about it. What would YOU want, anything potter related.
Uniform tee? Crest Hoodie?
Crest tee? Lightning bolt earrings?
Movie reproduced stuff like
A box of Bertie Botts beans? You could use those jelly beans that come in like popcorn flavour and make the box easy enough :-)


I don't wanna suggest obvious, stupid or already suggested stuff but things like crest and uniform tees can be made in a decent quality for about £4 with about 1.50/2 postage ( depending on where the buyer lives) and they could be sold for 10/12 which would make quite a lot for the forum.

Just a thought :-)

Would getting more members help or hurt the site's income? I don't know if getting more active members, that would possibly join the VIP section would help, or if it would just drive up bandwidth/server/whatever costs?

If getting more permanent members could potentially help, I do think that we could be utilizing social media a lot more in hopes of bringing in members. Facebook, I'm kind of at a loss. I know we have the page, but it kind of doesn't help if people don't know to look for it. However, the twitter account hasn't posted since October, so that could be more active. Also, a lot of the most "fanatic" people are on tumblr from what I can tell. I think if an audience is out there to try to build potential members from, that'd could be the most likely place to find it, by intelligently working with the tag and hashtag systems those sites have in place. Also, doesn't instagram have a similar system? Perhaps we could implement a social media team to try and spread the site out around the internet. I know I certainly spend enough time on social media, so I'd be willing to volunteer.

Of course this is all contingent on the assumption that we want more members.
