Miscellaneous Ramblings is a place where we will post stuff related to MandalaGaba, mandalas, and other stuff related to that stuff.

Humongous printed Mandalagaba mandalas!

A very cool and insightful person by the name of Amy Walker made some awesome mandalas with Mandalagaba and printed them out on huge sheets of papers for people to colorfy them!

This happened during the annual Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival (http://stillmoon.org/) last week-end.

Yup. That’s one of our mandalas. Couldn’t find the original in our daily digests.

Coloring our mandalas is something we are working on. We are going to let users decide whether they let other users color the mandalas they create on the platform. This concept will make much more sense when we will be adding user accounts and user galleries.

Another really cool aspect of this initiative is the collaboration side of it. Mandalagaba is built on a hefty network engine allowing collaborations between users, but for various reasons, most of whom are related to us not communicating enough about it, this features is unknown or misunderstood by 90% of our users.

Multiple facets of Mandalagaba either need to go through some fine-tuning or some simplifications to make our network engine more user friendly, and that is also something we are working.

In any case, we really appreciate that Amy did the Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival.

A word on the upcoming MandalaGaba Zen

“I have no idea what I’m doing, but this feels right”

“I have no idea what I’m doing, but this feels right”

We are currently working on making a simplified version of Mandalagaba.

The idea is to zenify the platform and strip it of all the little complex details and features that only appeal to our power users.

We want to produce an environment that will be ultra zen and that will focus only the essentials.
We are also going to add cool stuff like background images and relaxation music for good measure.

On top of that we will have user account where it will be possible to actually save your mandalas and better network with others.

As to when all of this will come to fruition, only time will tell.
