So I've been toying around with the idea of creating a separate community site for Hobie Island enthusiasts. The core of the site would be a forum much like this one but with a few modern updates (easy photo uploads, auto-handling YouTube links, real-time preview, etc... got a particular system in mind). In addition, it could provide a platform to emphasize and catalog mods and other helpful information currently only found by dredging the internet and this forum.
Now, this forum is actually great, and I'm glad Hobie is hosting it. However, I think there's enough of a vibrant community centered around the Islands to possibly branch off. Maybe even get some of the silent majority in on the conversation! But, I wanted to get input from others here. If anyone uses it, it'll be folks like you.
If this forum feels like enough, I won't worry too much about it.
As a software developer for an outdoorsy social network, this sort of thing is in my wheelhouse. However, I want to get a good pulse on the existing community before just grabbing the proverbial hammer and building stuff.
Let me know what you think!
