Thanks @tecnosgirl!

Background

Some time ago I had responded to a 'munchies' contest of @tecnosgirl's and I was chosen as a #contest-winner!

She contacted me on smoke and the discord to send me my #prize and I responded with my address.

I definitely started checking the mail more often!

Whee! It arrived!

She sent me this cool magnet of her artwork and promotion of smoke.io! Along with a very nice card explaining her high hopes for the platform.

I recently moved into the place, and so it's not furnished, so this is the first personal touch in the kitchen or living room. My first magnet for my first fridge!

The more I look at it the more I like it. The strong contrast of the light background and the sharp shadow of the style really makes the focal point of the glass piece 'pop'. Almost like an optical illusion. I've noticed that the aesthetics of the logo and phrase are also well designed.

What she wrote in the card almost immediately came to fruition. My roommate said,

Wow, someone actually sent something to you? That like, makes it real.

Or something similar. He did end up signing up! He hasn't posted or voted yet, but he also registered during a pretty busy time in his life. I also respect if new people take a minute to take in the system that they're dealing with, lurking a bit. He gave some good feedback that an APP would probably really increase membership, which I do believe is on the roadmap for smoke if I recall correctly. Just the fact that it would decrease one step between people on their device and smoke, and make a more intuitive interface for handheld devices, was his line of thinking.

A coworker/friend that came over the other day also saw the magnet and mentioned it! Although he didn't seem that interested in joining, even though he'd probably be a contribution. I think the guy's mother would actually be a prime candidate as a great member, and I'll be sure to mention that to him. I'm pretty sure she was talking about cooking up some edibles for Christmas Dinner.

Thanks again to @tecnosgirl! I hope everyone on Smoke has a great end of the year and a wonderful start to 2019!

I like the sound of that idea. An app. It would probably be easier to get people to join. If they pull it off, an app. Then we will be unstoppable as an community.

I've never created an app, or messed with putting one in the google play store.
Just general layman thinking makes me wonder if we couldn't find an open source app, pay someone to port it over to smoke, and move from there.
Could find something on github, either fork it and create code bounties for solutions, or advertise for someone knowledgable off a freelancer website. But again, that's just my layman ideas, without any research, of what a quick path could be to an App.
I'm sure stoner and others have ideas they haven't shared yet.
Thanks for reading!

My bad, I admit that was a bookmark I didn’t check. I knew Busy had taken them over but didn’t know the code repo would be nuked. Not available in Busy’s repo either.

Apologies.

No need for them. I just said it so you are aware. But I like the idea of an program very much.

I bet they do. I don't think that the idea of an app hasn't crossed their mind atleast once.

I hope it gets people talking and if they join because they might win something good. It is part of why I do it, because when people get something they didn't expect on the platform they are more likely to come back and keep using it the same effect happens when someone see's someone they know win a prize. It doesn't matter how big or small, people like winning stuff and getting something for free.

Congrats on your new abode, you must be over the moon. It's nice to see @tecnosgirl is looking after you, have a merry Christmas and make sure you bong on bro. :-)

the magnet is the its attraction work...I believe more of your friends are gonna join when dey see the magnet

Love it!!! Congrats on your apartment and a fresh life! 2019 should be interesting🤔😊

Thanks! I've actually been super blessed by crypto, I was able to get a mortgage for this 2 bedroom 2 bath condo by bragging about my crypto assets to a mortgage company.
I don't think they understood any of the documentation that I sent them (they literally had me sign my coinbase transfers spreadsheet in front of a notary), but they were willing to give me a loan before crypto dropped. One person's professional negligence is another person's opportunity. Now I just have to keep my head above water during these low times.
If 'trusted' members were passing through I'd even probably let them crash here, and there are conventions and shows in the area, so I can make it like a smoke-haus.
Years seem to get wackier, so can't wait to see what Season 2019 brings. Thanks for reading!

Nice!! A smokers dream! A 420 friendly crash spot!
It's low for now, but in time it'll be UP. In the meantime enjoy the slow life!!
