Thanks to Yola :)

Would love to give thanks to the Yola team and users. Basically, I started web design with Synthasite before it moved to Yola and used it for a little while when it was Yola. And then... a member of Yola introduced me to writing my own code and taught me the basics about hosting providers. Thanks to that person and all the help Yola provided me, I learned a lot about web design and then moved into web developing (the difference is that thin line between html/css and php/mysql). I have some great sites out there, some that were built and still hosted with Yola and others that I wrote from scratch in the code (and no, that's not easy... to write hundreds of thousands of lines of code and manage to not screw up the logic necessary. Try placing 7 while loops inside of each other for one simple task. All of which wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for my initial interest in web design, where I signed up for Synthasite. I just finished (although it still requires extensive maintenance throughout) a social networking site (yes, better than facebook - lol, in my opinion), but because it's not a Yola hosted site, I won't post it unless I get a request to do so.

Thank You Yola for the help you've provided me over the last 3 years. :)

Features unique to the social networking...

DramaRiskFactor(TM) - see how much drama other users like to partake in, filter out those that like drama - the filtering is still a work in progress, but you can currently see other users (and your own) drama (rated by other users).

Theme Designer - choose your own colors or a preset design such as a sports theme, including logos of that team. The theme chosen will be throughout your whole browsing experience, except on other people's profiles, then it will be their chosen theme.

Ha! "Drama Free Social Networking" is a great concept! If you can get the filtering right you may be able to claim a niche of people like me who are a bit jaded with Social Media for this very reason. Well done!

You would think, so far, noone seems interested in a drama free social networking. Per my tests, it IS working. Quite simple concept in fact...

You know the "like" button on facebook? I have that too, but I also have a "drama" button. Users can click drama on statuses, it then adds to a Drama Risk Factorâ„¢ - calculates what drama level they have based on their total calculation. In the privacy settings, there is an option to disallow users with a certain Drama Risk Factorâ„¢ Drama Free 0 points, Low 1 to 24, etc. Then there's a calculation to compare each user to everyone and then each user to everyone in that person's zip code.
