We need your help. Do you have 37 seconds for us?

Hello LMR!

In order to better understand what you like/dislike in online communities, we'd like you to share your feedback on the 2-questions long survey below

https://insights.hotjar.com/s?siteId=500076&surveyId=35260

It should take more than 37 seconds from start to finish (we timed it!) but it would really help us and contribute to shaping the future of the platform.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Title random biological human robot/ electronical ideas

Just some ideas sketched on paper

Combining an arduino/ raspberry pi/ banana pi

Or look alike via usb with a smartphone was an idea

Since android software is maybe compatible wit linux.

Then you can use the interface of the smartphone ro acces the arduino hardware and use smartphone hardware at the same time for a robot.

Recommendation Engine

I have been laid up this winter and have been working from home the past several months.  Idle hands ARE the devil's work so I decided to take on a machine learning challenge at CodeProject.com and build a recommendation engine like Amazon, Facebook etc.  These are interesting pieces of software that in commercial sites can work in conjunction with search engines to lead customers to content, products or items they might never would have looked at otherwise.  In fact, this is something that might be useful on LMR - maybe have a recommendations window for when a user logs in?&
