So I'm looking for more ideas on how we can make Hoop City even better. Do you have an idea for a resource we might need?
Make your suggestion and I'll try to make it happen:
- Article Ideas with information about common questions
- Features for Advanced Hoopers (we have tons of info. for beginners but what do more advanced hoopers need?
Please keep in mind that I am not a programmer and so my skills are somewhat limited so there are some features I simply won't be able to create.

Does it really max out at one minute? I feel like I've seen people upload longer than that. Give it a try! It's okay to upload to Hoop City as long as it's only a few people. Besides, for those who have YouTube accounts it's nice to have all the total views tallied up from views on here too!
A feature that would be nice is to immediately ban the "Order carisoprodol cod" posts. They're just annoying and a waste of forum space.
I think you can make that happen when you ban the words "carisoprodol cod"?
And also, a COMBINATION/TRICK GENERATOR... WHAT IS AIR!? that would be sooo ace! :D
A distinct section for specific skills
Ha ha! Facebook has made me want to hit "like" on peoples comments on this site, on several occasions!
On a more serious note...It took me a long time to find hoopers in my area. Nearly a year. I found that even though there is a spot for locating regional groups, I didn't have luck in my area. I got very discouraged and felt like I needed to keep myself plugged in here just to socialize with other hoopers. So I'm not sure if there is a way to broaden the search from here to "out there". I did put a shout out on the Pacific NW/Portland hoopers group page for a local group. Maybe we can encourage all hoopers to extend other local groups to the Hoop City public?
=) Performance class!
