    I’d love to win this component. If I had to win this i’d implement it into my new website (not sure if I can state the link here :-/), which is a horse-bet tipping system (more sports tips to be implemented at a later stage), it has a forum for the users but making use of this component will greatly add value to my website and better communication in my websites community. It would be an amazing component to have on my website.

  • http://chandra.utama.us Chandra

    I would use it to based my school community on JomSocial. I thinks it’s better than using regular forum and encourage more interactivity between members. So success is more likely if the members more active, Thanks!

  • http://www.giochiflashfree.info Gigi

    Im looking for a new theme and a social plugin to improve social engage ffor my flash games site.

  • Jacob

    If I win, i’ll extend site with community functions :)

  • Michiel

    I would build an online community for my college. So users can create on online platform for several courses.

  • Dion

    I am working on a community site based on XenForo, and while that does have the features that we need, after reading through the JomSocial features, it seems that it suits our needs A LOT better than XenForo and will gives us a VERY good starting ground for the community, as the designs seem to be built to look good on all aspects of features.
    I would love to win a Professional Edition of JomSocial for this reason, and I would even go as far to transfer my XenForo license to you, so you can give that to someone else (Will renew it so it will last 1 year, to be fair to whoever gets it)

    I hope you choose me, if not, then congratulations to the winners :)

  • Andy

    I would love this so I can fulfill my dream of creating a niche community for people facing financially tough times. The community would help them to support and help each other and meet people in a similar situation. I am facing tough times too so to have something free would be great and give me a boost to do something positive.

  • http://www.cartaoacademico.com Ignacio Correia

    The idea is to use this component to create a community of all students from Portugal.

    The Cartao Academico Project joins the student with the community allowing them with 1 card get discount and promotions.

    This copponent will allow them to express themselves.
    With you help we can give power to the students :D

  • http://www.desiconnection.co.uk Nelson Dawson

    Would love to use this component on a new site I have been planning but not sufficient funds to lift it off the ground.

    Worked before with this and am sure the new additions will really help greatly.

  • goboxy

    I have been trying for a long time to build an artist community, an ad free community where all art student can share their works, get reviews and constructive credit, I’m working with 4 other persons on this idea, and we are committed to add something new, useful and open to all.

    No plan to make money from that, but what most matter to me, is be part of community, share and gave back, I hope to have some luck and win ans start building, as you know it’s just a though time and little help will be appreciated.

  • http://www.sonaliagrawal.com Sonali Agrawal

    Awesome giveaway! I’ll be using it to create a social network for people from India who have been living in the US for decades and new as well!

  • http://www.yakinworks.com Yakin Works

    Winning this product would be a fantastic opportunity. This would be a great feature to add to a collaboration network that is in development for my clients. With the customization, it would also make it possible for personalized sub-networks for them as well. Thus making interaction with shows, announcements, and specialty social marketing campaigns possible.

    I really hope to be one of the five. If not, congratulations to those that do win this very nice platform.

  • chrishawn

    i used to run a local music community site called musicscene.org and our old community software just became out of date and we didn’t have enough money to keep moving forward with it. but still every day i get requests to bring back the site. this looks like it would be a perfect fit for where I would like to take the site to breathe life back into it again

  • Hiki

    Its really great chance to win such a nice prize. it would help me to build community to promote open source. I am planning to start something to support open source because less people are aware about open source and waste money in proprietary.

  • Dennis

    I read ur entrys every day since ur opening. I want to say sorry and thx in one sentence for giving me/us such an place of inspiration and usefull things.

    I want to setup 3 sozial places
    - one is our online TV-Podcast channel meikel.tv on which we present regional stuff about people, events and local authority politics. There will be a communitysetup on spring next year
    - the second is for needy people, where there can get professional information and help. we have some 1€ shops around here, some open places for invalid people. We (meikel.tv) asked the operators of these places it they want to use such a thing like an community and we get much posive response.
    - the third one is at the moment a closed community, where people can give an idea of an product which will get in production when its voted by the community. we had cb installed but we testet around with js and it is the better solution for us.

    So it would be nice, if I win one license to get not to much in trouble with the costs and it will be set-in for the second one of these communitys.

    thx4reading and I wish all of the commenters good luck.

    best regards
    dennis

  • peebe

    Will make a thorough benchmark of JomSocial regarding performance and features compared to others like SocialEngine.

  • http://oorodi.com bage

    Wish to develop a temple community. Will definitely help me.

  • Max

    I really want to win. If this happens, I’d use JomSocial to improve my Party(Planing)-WebApp which is currently in development.
    Another idea I have is to build some kind of mobile/coupon/shopping-community.
    Third idea: kick FB’s ass by being more awesome.
    4th: Community for movie junkies and (indie)music lovers.
    Hope to win!
    Best!

  • RichardMX

    I’ve always wanted to use this component. Maybe in first world countries 150USD is “nothing” but in third world countries it’s just a lot of money.

    Would like to win and use it to enhance my soccer website.

    Thank you.

  • http://desertweather.com John Slama

    I run a regional weather site for S. California and have always wanted to implement social into it for the community to get involve in weather discussions. I have tried other solutions with no luck. I like JomSocial it looks very complete and polished.

    I would love to win a copy to use on my site.

  • Ghofrani

    I will use this component to set up Educational community websites for schools and universities . I like the Ajax private message system of this component which can be used to be integrated with any component . I can add the jomsocial PMS option beside every article author on the website using some line of code which will be a powerful feature for the website .
    Also the user list feature with search and filtering options are so nice feature for educational community websites .
    Also this component support addon applications that can be setup on the backend of the component to be able to add more features to the community . For example I can use the latest articles tab in the user homepages through the use of addon plugins .
    Also this component shows the online status of users which is so good for community websites .
    Also the activity stream which is shown on the component frontpage homepage is so nice for such community websites .

    Regards
    Ghofrani

  • John Drew

    I would build a online community for students and teachers in our school. Make them share all about their classes. Maybe like online grade book. :)

  • http://tgn.tv George Vanous

    JomSocial claims to be the best social platform, but BuddyPress 1.5 is the best, in my opinion! I am an ex-Microsoft engineer who built parts of Hotmail and I found the WordPress/BuddyPress framework to be easier to develop for with better community support. You can see what I built at http://tgn.tv – That said, I would like to try the Pro version of JomSocial and hope I get picked in this contest :)

  • ibheck

    if I win I’ll use it for a gathering place for me and my friends flash game lov

  • Yuwei

    Hope I could win this :D

  • Robert

    I’m a long time Joomla user, even pre-Joomla, since Mambo to present version. I’ve built several communities since, and I would like to have the opportunity to try Joomsocial for my next community project, and see how it compares to the other Joomla community components.

  • http://tradeshift.com Daniel Spitzer

    I’m not sure if my previous comment went through (if it did, please ignore this one instead of disqualifying me)

    If I’d win access to JomSocial, I’d use it to build a developer and user community for Tradeshift. =)

  • Aphiwad Chhoeun
