We’ve grown only by the sheer support and love from the community. Now we want to return the favour and expand the functionality of the website to help you grow and get in touch with each other. Knowledge sharing and building contacts are the building blocks of growing an individual and community.

Please watch the short 3min video where I talk about what we want to do. We’re asking that if you guys can help in any way, donations,etc that it would help a lot! Other than that, this is just an update to let you know where we are going and that we’re busy saving up for this upgrade.

Community Revamp – Helping out the locals!

We’ve grown over the last few years and with power comes responsibility #Spiderman

We want to enable the local community by upgrading our platform so that people can connect with artists, follow them, get inspired, find work, chat in groups and more!

With our current setup we can only do so much and feel its time to change for the better!

Milestones

Tipping Point: R 3,000 to successfully and fully launch this new design and functionality of the new website

So why are we motivated to do this?


What does the new website offer?

Well in a nutshell:

  1. Shows off projects
  2. Shows off work in progress pieces (Start discussions or give feedback)
  3. Better view and search for members
  4. Keeping the Job Board
  5. More flexible profile with more features!
  6. Group sections (Create groups to chat)
  7. Forum section (Discuss ideas,functions,events)

Here are some mock ups of the new website look of the features we mentioned (Please click to enlarge):

We will use the R3,000 to:

  1. Buy the licence/theme
  2. Patch the holes with the migration progress

The Theme Cost:

Plan to launch new site:

As soon as possible of course! The process will be a bit daunting to successfully migrate all users,info and media but were hoping the support team selling the theme will help smooth it out.

We’re planning to launch November or December so hold thumbs!

SUMMARY

In a nutshell that’s it! We’re always trying to make life easier for you guys and we’ve heard some great stories about how the community has helped you connect with each other and actually find work! $1 Makes all the difference or even words of encouragement 🙂

Thank you for your love and support, everyone of you mean the world to us.

Stay awesome!
