Therefore I would like to partner with a developer that has the dedication and skills to build a bridge / emulator that mimics certain elements of behavior / interface. This is especially targeted on mobile users, so it shall be fully responsive of course.
Here I propose "partnering" over "funding", because I can and want to do the conceptual work, including interface design and the developer does the coding. Bringing 20+ years of design and marketing experience to the table could help maybe. Once ready, this can be sold to the general XF community as I would think that more XF admins are interested to close the gap between XF and social media.
I know this has been discussed here and elsewhere controversially and there are voices that want a strict separation, but I see the potential in my member community and maybe I am not alone with this.
If one of the experienced "usual suspects" (meant respectfully) could step in I would really appreciate it. Of course I appreciate the opinion of the developer in regard of the realization of such a project. More details can be discussed in private.
