    Hey Guys, The last few days I have been working on a new site; that I am going to launch aimed at sharing Coming Out stories. I think these stories will be greatly beneficial to youth, and adults alike.

    The site is in beta right now, as I have mostly finished the programming. I now need to move on to getting rid of the bugs, tweaking the look, and getting some stories.

    If any of you would like to help achieve any of these goals, and hopefully end up helping the community please feel free.

    The address is http://icameout.org

    The greatest help you could give is to just test out the normal functionality, post your story or a test story. Post a question, or a comment.

    Please leave any problems found as a response to this post, so I can go about fixing them. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Does it look really bad?
    To plain?
    Is it hard to use?
    Hard to understand?
    Needs more features?

    Or anything else you can think of.
    Thanks again,
    Matt

    Thanks, I think so too. People loved the it gets better videos, so why not share our coming out stories, to help those who haven't had the guts or are not in the right position to do it yet.

    You should email the itgetsbetter site admins and have them exchange links.
    Yeah I know...link exchanges are so yesteryear; but this is one that would be worth it.

    Hey cool...my story double-posted.
    Then when you refresh the page, one of the posts disappears.
    Then when you refresh again, it's double-posted again.
    Then when you refresh again, it's only one again.
    Repeat, repeat, repeat...same results.
    Kinda funny. icon_lol.gif

    Yah, the homepage shows a random one, the most recent, and the most viewed.

    Since there are only two, yours should show up ~`half of the time.
