    I will give this site a rare 10 in my book.  It loaded quickly and I understood the concept in just a few moments and had no difficulty navigating.From a business perspective, your localization should go even further.  In the US, for example, down to the states.  I would also like to see a category for upcoming events.  I would limit it, though, to members posting their plans.  For example, later this month I will be going to watch a fireworks demo in Hew Hampshire.  I am sure that others might like to go to it also.

    pretty decent site, i would tie together the site a little more with some more graphic work. Make it a little less of a template look and a custom look to your brand image.I agree with Videography that it would nice to be  able to drill down to specific events that are pertanent to me.What is your business model on the site?

    Hi Craig,We are innovating Weekend Planning with our portal, FunPiper.com. And, we chose micro blogging (refer twitter) as enabler of our vision. Imagine yourself planning your weekend at FunPiper.com while browsing various weekend fun posts and reading customised weekend deals/offers by various vendors at various location (revenue pitch in here through subscription). Advertisement is other revenue model.As we have launched around a month back, we are working on various features including localization.Thanks for reviewing my portal. I got some valuable insight.Ajitesh

    Hi Craig,From Twitter style, I meant Micro blogging that a famous portal in US, http://www.twitter.com has adopted. Micro blogging which short message style blogging is catching up fast. And, yes, useful comments Craig. Make sense to me.Stay tuned and let me know if you have other comments.ThanksAjitesh

    thanks Garythat was a great suggestion. However, funpiper originated from the very idea of spreading the fun and followers following you due to you being so live and a person who has great fun. You are correct in saying that I have Indian connection but I envision to make a place for fun. And, I have already noted down the portal looking like a template. Let me see how soon I address this issue. Thanks once again!
