    Default Looking for a Facebook application developer

    Blackwater and I are admins of the site CelebrityTypes.com and we're looking for someone to develop a Facebook application for the site. We're able to pay a little bit for your trouble, but we're hoping to find someone who will also think of it as a labor of love in service of the typology cause. Based on the traffic to our site (as of this writing we've had 175,000 visits from Stumbleupon.com alone, most of them in 2011), we expect tens of thousands of people to enjoy the Facebook application. We have a clear idea of the application we want (it's fairly simple (at least so we think)), but your tweaking input would of course be welcome.

    Have I managed to pique anyone's interest?

    (PM me your email address for an outline of the application we have in mind.)

    Well, I don't know if I could do that, but I think it's a relatively easy job for anyone with a little bit of programming skill. I bet that ygolo or nightning could do this.

    Still, a Facebook application sounds like a really good way to get your site off the ground. People could be reminded of it every time they look at Facebook. I think it's a very clever idea, and someone needs to help you program it.

    If you get absolutely no other help, I imagine that I could TRY to do it myself (as I have nothing better to do), but it would take me a while to figure it out, and I would rather that someone who was more skilled/experienced at creating things like this helped you out.

    Thanks for the of-Fe-r, Athenian, , but we agree with you that finding someone in the know would be best.

    No students, say, out there looking to make a little bit of money while geeking something cool?

    Yeah, I thought you would.

    Tell you what I'll do, though... I'll see if I can contact ygolo or nightning about this. Maybe a few other people as well.

    Could you list more specifically what qualifications you'd like them to have? I mean, how much experience, or anything like that? So that I'll know who to ask?

    Oh, no need to contact anyone; I may be an INTJ but I'm not looking to make anyone do this.

    I don't know which competencies are required. I think it's fairly simple for anyone to whom the words 'develop a Facebook application' do not seem totally foreign.

    It looks like I may have to post the job on Elance...

    Okay, although it's too bad... they probably just haven't seen this thread.

    Probably, if they've developed a similar application before. Although... I suppose it really depends on what you want the application to do. If it's at all complex, you may need certain competencies.

    Maybe that's a sign that it's time to get your "Donate" button working so people can send you money?

    Wait... Our Donate button doesn't work?!

    It works for me. What problem are you experiencing?

    It just sends me to a blank, white webpage when I click on it. If I try refreshing it, it takes me to PayPal's main page.

    Wait... which page on the website is the one you're clicking on on?

    I was thinking to myself, "I would think that a girl named Economica would be able to figure out the economic importance of setting up a system to allow money to flow in..."

    I thought you were just waiting until you got your site more developed in order to deal with that problem. That's what your admin told me a couple weeks ago when I e-mailed them about it.

    But I was concerned that having a non-working Donate button might cause people who want to donate to think it doesn't work, and give up trying even if later you get it working.

    Hehe... you're lucky that I'm so bloody persistent, or it might have taken a while to find out.

    Ever since the redesign, it's not even on the main page at all, as far as I can see... I had to go to the one on the "About" page, which doesn't work.

    EDIT: Hmm... I just tried clicking on it ten times in a row on Internet Explorer (I usually use Firefox) and now it works. Huh... I don't know why I had such a hard time getting it to work. I wonder if anyone else was/is experiencing issues, or it was just me...

    Default OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!

    OMG! Athenian! If a first donation of 50 cents would have caused jumping up and down for joy, imagine the smileys Blackwater and I are sending each other in our emails back and forth since receiving notification of this one! We can't quite believe it. Wow is all I can say! Wow, and thank you thank you thank you!

    Do you realize the fantasies of eventually making a living off the site I'll be having all weekend now?

    Heh, I guess I''ll have to update the text on the about page now. That's a luxury problem I've been looking forward to!

    And heh again - that was you a few weeks back?! D'you know, I read the email (Blackwater and I get admin |a| celebritytypes.com email forwarded to each of our accounts) and I thought "wow, that is totally an INFJ like Athenian" but it didn't occur to me that it might actually be you. Everyone else (ok, ok, the ONE other person ) from the board has made their Typology Central identity known when communicating with us.

    Oh, and this girl named Economica totally would love to have control over the site economics but Blackwater handles both ads and PayPal because he already has another website and so he already had everything set up. I have no idea what the problem with the donate button ever was. (If anyone else is reading this and wants to check for me whether either of the two buttons here fail for you, I'd be grateful!)

    Thanks again so much, Athenian! And oh wow, I just noticed you put the link to our site in your signature - thanks for that too!

    All this energy, and I haven't even had my morning coffee yet. This is going to be a good day!

    ... Thank you!

    Wait a minute... I know what you did to arrive at that odd donation amount... You picked a nice number in our local currency and then you converted to USD, didn't you?

    (Or has my Ni been overstimulated? )
