    Hello everyone,

    My name is Patrik and I've been a member here for quite some time now so I thought it might be time to introduce myself.
    I'm a student from Sweden and I'm starting out learning programming with my first programming course finished. Hopefully I will soon be able to constribute with plugins to this great CMS.

    At the moment I don't run any Hotaru sites but I will soon at runnertalk.net and maybe one more that I have in mind. On runnertalk I first used pligg as CMS but in my opinion Hotaru is way much better, plus as I'm just starting out learning programming it feels better to follow the development the CMS from the beginning as I have done with Hotaru.

    Hi rush - Catawissa is a very small town southwest of St. Louis, but big enough to rate a wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catawissa,_Missouri

    I see you're near KC, I bet you're a BBQ expert :) - I'm a pretty mean griller myself IMHO lol

    I have to say, I'm working on installing Hotaru on a couple of sites and it's been painless, everything just works which is kind of freaking me out, I'm used to glitches, bugs and the agony of defeat! I'm really impressed with what Nick and you guys have accomplished in so short of time, it's just amazing. I think I'll be going live with a site in about a week, and I'll be sure to let you guys know in case y'all want to check it out, I'm pretty excited about i. If it takes off the way I think (hope) it will it might turn out to be a pretty big thing, which of course will draw a lot of attention to Hotaru: that would be a win/win for everybody :)

    Hello everyone, my name is Louis (father,geek,n00b) I came across Hotaru CMS just by chance while I was searching for a "Delicious / Scuttle" open source application. I was impressed with the Hotaru demo site and forums and decided to sign up, and give Hotaru a closer look. I'm looking to setup a simple social bookmarking site, not sure Hotaru is for me, but look forward to playing around with this CMS.

    /waves to Nick and the Hotaru Community.

    Welcome Louis, and thanks for joining us! Always great to have new members.

    I was in the same boat you were about six months ago when I was looking around for Digg clone scripts, and I stumbled upon Hotaru. I've been here ever since. It's amazing how fast it's improving and how much it's changed since I joined. Scary to think about how good it'll be a year or two from now. Hat tip to Nick!

    Enjoy your stay, and ask questions. We're a helpful bunch of people, and with a little time, you'll be a Hotaru CMS expert.

    hi all,

    I was struggling with the Pligg to implement some features. But yesterday one of my friend referred this hotaru application. That time itself i have installed and tested it. I did feel like, it is good enough to handle anything. Then i have installed it on my live website: http://www.bookmarks.comn.us/

    Let me tell you a special thanks for the application. :cool:

    I'm Wim Tibackx, 17 yr. old student from Belgium. I came across Hotaru CMS searching for a bare-bones cms after getting disappointed by WordPress' bad user management. I'm currently trying to make my first plugins for a website assignment for my thesis. Hotaru looks very promising. I was in fact shocked by the low number of clean cms'. It seems like much of them like to enforce their own contenttypes for some reason. I was already planning to write an own cms, but as it looks now, I'll just use Hotaru instead.

    Looking forward to more Hotaru magic!
