[Project] Metahill | Getting live help real quick to programming questions :)
The rage is all about Metahill
is a small project made up by 3 computer science students in Karlsruhe, Germany.
No weirdo Flash and for sure no Silverlight is required. Ah yeah, and thus the website by the way loads super-fast
But let's come to the real thing here..
What exactly is it about?
The best thing to do here is most likely just citing the landing page:
At metahill, you can meet other enthusiasts and chat with them in real-time.
It is entirely free, ad-free and community-driven.
Metahill is a website where you can totally free of charge (and ads-free!!) chat with ethusiasts all around the world.
The cool thing is that all communication is categorized by rooms - the chat rooms. Plenty exist by default, but everyone may make new ones.
Users help users.
Of course you can be within multiple rooms at the same time, that is no problem at all, it's encouraged!
The page then looks just like that:
What are the advantages of metahill.com over existing medias?
There is a bunch of good reasons
why Metahill can be considered "superior" to other, existing services.
We listed the most significant ones at the official Metahill help site
I will just touch the categories in this topic. Nonetheless you can find a longer description on each of these at the help page http://www.metahill.com/help
To the original list.
Why im I posting this?
- Uniformity across all devices
- It is easy to get involved
- It is lightning fast, thanks to open standards
- We're organized
- Beyond text
- Never again miss anything
- Behind all this is an open community
- Metahill is simple to use
- Community-revised code on German servers (Nope, NSA!)
I like XNA and the people around here!
Leaving this aside, we also seek freaked-out beta-testers "early adapters" who would like to test metahill or even get involved.
This project is now online since a few month and keeps running quite stable, yet we need waaaay more users for the network to reach its full potential!
What is _your_ top-feature of metahill?
Messages are (if you choose so) logged for three days and there is a real bunch smilies and easter-eggs. Awwr, I like easter-eggs.
Yet my favorite feature is that I can share images so easily. Drag'n'Drop (or CTRL-C/V) your picture into the browser and the others will see it. Dude, it can't be easier
. Problem reporting is a dream.
Metahill for (Web)Developers
One thing at the beginning: The developer page can be found at http://d.metahill.com
What's planned are Android and iOS apps of Metahill.
You can embed Metahill as a client within your websites using iframes.
For instance to comment live-streams, let's play's or just to offer free live-support on your website.
