I'd like to see your ideas for getting more people involved in the general discussion. If you're reading this and you're not a robot, what caused you to first get interested in the forum here on Shapeways? What would like to see more of?

For myself, I've been building things my whole life, so when I first heard about Shapeways I immediately started thinking about, "Hey! What can I build using their services!?" I also was just starting to get into sculpting jewelry. Back then though Shapeways resolution was low for silver and they were in Holland and it just wasn't too enticing. But when they started providing better resolution and came to the US, that's when I started looking into creating jewelry and participating in the forum.

I'd like to see more contests and for them to be consistent, not just here and there and being lackadaisical about it. I'd like to see the prize value go up and for Shapeways to invest in advertising them so more people will participate.

I'd like to see more communication about what is selling on Shapeways. It feels like a secret so deep that it can feel like there is a secret club for what sales and if you're not part of it then TOO BAD! HAHA! :D I now know what sells after hanging out here for years, but it shouldn't be that way. It should be more transparent and in the open. I feel like it causes people to shy away and not want to participate.

Right this instant there are lots of people out there thinking about Shapeways in one way or another. What can we do to get them to post their thoughts here? :)

It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.
