^ So glad i found you! I’ll be using Coolest Meeting in a vid i’m making. Good stuff.
1) Would you like to see a “Contributors” page, where anyone who gets a resource accepted would be listed along with a link to their website?
I’m thinking about using small Gravatar avatars next to the names, but perhaps there’s a better option. Maybe i won’t be using avatars at all.
2) If you have any suggestions on how can i make fabURLs more popular, please send me a private message. I’m not a marketer by trade. Reminder – i’m doing this for free.
The category tree has been updated according to your suggestions. I’ve added “Education”, “Resources”, and “Marketplaces”. Thanks for finding those threads @bianca, i’ll go through them when i have a moment.
Non taken as it’s not my website anyway .
I just thought you were looking for useful links to add to your own site not the site by itself. I wouldn’t dare …
Are you also thinking of adding more categories? Anyway bookmarked it!
Aah, very sorry, Bianca. I don’t know why i thought this was your site. But as a source of links – you’re right, it’s great. I misunderstood.
More categories.. yes, i’m thinking about it. I’m sure a general “Resources” will appear soon, like @Australia suggested. Would you like to add anything in particular?
@glutenfree4u – good stuff, ta.
@bianca – loads of fab links, but the ad nature of your website makes me hesitate.. don’t take it personal, i’m trying not to advertise anything too much
@jonathan01 – You are welcome. I’m a huge fan of what you present here. Fantastic.
The URLs are keep coming in and i’m continuously adding them to the list. It’s getting more popular than i expected. Very motivating.
@jonathan01 – Great, i’ve added your URL.
@IngeniousArtist – That’s awesome. I’m having a look now.
Also, big thank you everyone. I will keep adding resources, you seem to be enjoying this and new submissions are coming in.
As the database grows, i’m thinking about showing ten most liked URLs from each category on the homepage, and then have separate category pages showing all links, also sorted by vote count. I’m trying to come up with a rational plan of action.
Tonight, instead of the usual weekend activity i.e. going out and grabbing some beer, i sat down and created http://www.faburls.com
It’s intended to be a nice looking list of useful resources, websites and services for web designers and developers. Perhaps some people will find it handy. I’m hoping to put together a kind of compendium, which then can be handed out to beginner web professionals. Veterans probably already know most of the links.
I’m doing this for free, as a side project. There’s a possibility to contribute, so if you are interested in helping out you’re very welcome to do so. I need to grow the links database and also to spread the word about this initiative. Feel free to msg me.
Actually, i concur. I wonder what the stats are for the “Buy now” button, though.
The key is to never disclose any details about the client. That particular person mentioned above was in fact amused by the reply they got. I remember being friendly-fired-at by some people from exotic (at least to me) business fields, and it only made me feel good about the whole thing.
