A safe, creative community for kids
DIY is a really awesome and safe community for kids. First of all I would like to say that the moderators are super nice, but not only do they make sure that kids are safe and away from bullies, they also really like to help inspire the kids by giving advice, and commenting on their posts. The other kids on DIY are nice, and very well mannered- it is very very rare to see someone being bullied. If someone is bullied though, they get reported fairly quickly. The website/ app provides lots of skills for kids to learn, and as a member of DIY, I can definitely say that I have learned so much that I can use later down the road. It teaches kids to grow and learn through each other and help others along the way. Lastly, I would like to say that the way the website/ app is built is very good. When you go onto the website, you can see your passions and skills that your good at based on what skills you learn. You can also set asides things you'd like to learn in your to do list. Other than a few slight glitches with the app, it's a great place for kids to learn and grow. And again, As a member for about a year and a half, I totally recommend this 👍
Best app for kids ever!
This app is great! Once installed, you can say goodbye to bored afternoons! I love the variety of challenges and the contests. Especially the contests! They keep everything interesting. Another thing I like about the app is the mods and the support system. The mods are always really quick to delete something offensive and offer advice and praise to kids. When I first emailed a question I had to the "help section" I was not expecting to get feedback for days, weeks, or even months. But, surprise, surprise! The next day an answer arrived in my inbox and my curiosity was satisfied. I just have to say, wow! The community at DIY is great and I have met many fun people who share my interests. DIY is a really nice place for kids to connect. Now, of course there are a few bugs. I often have trouble posting videos over a minute long, and sometimes the app will freeze up or not open. But, all in all, I think DIY is a great app and any kid with a creative mind and some time on their hands should get this app. Happy crafting!
Good, but Needs a few things..
Its a great app, but I think it needs a but more.
First off, you should be able to Tag more than three people and they ALL should get the notification, which has not been happening. Secondly, I know the /n thing only happens under certain circumstances, but it still needs to be fixed please.
Thirdly, I'd be super cool if you could make polls, to find out which decoration, jack-o-lantern design, and color sceme is better, and I'd be really fun!
Fourthly, you should be able to make text posts, as in, not always have to put in a picture for things. This can be useful for making ancounments to followers/community members, making a contest, posting a story, ect without the picture to be a distraction. It would also be more interesting and fun!
Lastly, you should be able to PM (Private Message,) people. This might be usful for having a converation with another user about things like; suggestions they might have about a project there working on, a concern they have about a post they made, or simply asking for advice, and this way you won't attract to much attention or cause to much drama, or you just might not wan't to talk anout in 'puplic'. I understand that this might be seen as a way to bully or harass other users, so I think that if this was made a thing, you should be able to report comments wile in the PM.
I hope you found this useful, and that these become a thing.
