    Hey!

    I have been working on a website for a few days now whenever I had free time and the end product is: http://theinstazone.com/

    Right now, it's basically a shoutout exchange website where you can exchange shoutouts. I plan to add multiple features that you guys will like over the coming days.

    Feel free to leave feedback here as the contact page is still under construction (haven't really started working on it yet :D). Also, I am new to bootstrap so feel free to report any issues with the layout.

    Update log:

    UPDATE 1: Added private settings, you can hide your username now.

    UPDATE 2: Added "Other" niche.

    UPDATE 3: Contact page is now fully working.

    UPDATE 4: Added "Animals" niche. Table is now also sortable by simply clicking on the column header. Followers/Likes requirements have their own columns now.

    UPDATE 5: Added bunch of niches and updated submitted accounts and their niche according to the new niches. Feel free to edit your account if I placed in in the wrong category.

    Can I suggest the option to have the account name private and show it off only if the shoutout exchange is accepted?
    Another useful option would be "Geolocalization" in requirements so people can see only accounts from place X and ask for place X as a requirement.
    Nice project BTW

    I've always loved the idea of a website like this. Needs a lot more options for niche, but otherwise looks good

    Thanks for the feedback guys, lookin forward to see how it works out.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will add an option so that you can check wheter your username should be private or public. Regarding the "Geolocalization" option, I am not sure but I will check it out.

    Glad that you like the website guys :) I will be working on a brand new section called "Marketplace" where you can buy/sell shoutouts. I was planning to add likes exchange too but I am not sure if someone would be interested in that. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

    Likes exchange would be nice!
    About geolocalization, it would be very useful for account in specific languages. You could put a language option instead!

    Another cool feature would be the ability to sort columns by clicking on titles. This will be useful when the list will be very big. You could also split like and followers required in different columns so people can order usernames as they want.

    95% of the niches on the website are 'Other', which looks kinda bad imo. Why don't you add more niches, or let users type their own niche rather than 'Other'?

    The problem with letting them type in their own niche is that 1 niche might be written differently, such as "Tattoo", "Tattoos", which will then affect the search option... I will gladly add more niches, feel free to write some here or send me an email via the website and I will have them up and running in no time :)
