We're launching a social network with a focus on sports, health and lifestyle to tie in with our Pledgetags and I thought i'd get your feedback.

The ultimate idea is to provide a central site for people who want to lose weight, run their first marathon or change jobs with advice and encouragement from others.

People join, request a group for their team, club, event or friends and invite their friends to join with blogs, forums, pictures, video etc... They can then discuss specific events or talk tactics.

It's Beta at the mo but it's at www.pledgeworld.com if you feel like helping, we can change any element we like. You can see the front page without joining so you'll get the idea.

Thoughts and constructive feedback welcome.

Thanks,

Happy to give it a look, but the link isn't working. Let us know when it's fixed and I'm sure the TT massive will have lots to say. Very Happy

Cool -- working now. I probably just had very bad timing and tried when there was a glitch somewhere in the "lines".

Maybe it's just me, but I hate sites that require you to sign up before you can look around.

good point, we allowed the Homepage to be view by anyone but ask for people to join after that to increase trust and remove all the problems with spiders and bots collecting email addresses and spam.

When people join we authorise them, this also guards against the majority of dodgy intentions.

Content and layout are really key.

But you're collecting emails. How does anyone know it's not just a fancy front page for an email collection service?

I'm sorry, I simply don't have the time / inclination for another social network / forum site....

Hope your venture goes well.....

The idea is you'd be invited to join by a friend or team mate increasing the trust factor.

Oh, I see. Just like on other social networking sites!

I didn't mean anything negative about you in particular, I know we all know who you are and what you do. But I wondered if casual browsers would. But you explained that.

I don't go for social networking to be honest, it's a whole load of hassle and nonsense. At least Facebook is.
