Hi Neil,

I've written a web application for our community and make it available for free 
to other communities at

it has a ton of features and I'm adding new ones all the time (e.g. I just 
added over a dozen themes based on Bootstrap). I'm happy to host a site for

PostgreSQL) available.

I'm also happy to participate in a tech discussion.
