Web Contact Form reinvented for the
21st century pigeonapp.im

The Concept Behind

Hello folks, my name is Emanuele, I'm a web designer at Plastic Panda and I want to show you a simple idea that would make many developer's life easier.

Everytime you build a contact form for a website, something goes wrong. You can bet on it.

After spending a lot of work writing some server side code that should work in an unspecified language on a non-specified server and after losing a lot of time designing the contact email layout, emails still not showing correctly in some outdated client and you start immediately receiving tons of spam.

And to make matters worse your client often doesn't want to pay for this extra effort. It's not fair!



Solving the Problem

We are developing a very simple and powerful Web Service: Pigeon.

Using a simple Control Panel (or maybe in the future, the Public API) you can create a unique URL to be used as action in your form tag.

When your users submit such a form, Pigeon App receives the message and checks it for spam using the most advanced technologies available: Akismet, Barracuda RBL, Spamhaus SBL, Sorbs DNSBL. Not a single spam message will reach your inbox!

To prevent any message sent via Pigeon App to be flagged as spam, we also digitally sign all outgoing e-mail with DKIM and support SPF.

After the spam check, the message is beautifully paginated and sent to the recipient's inbox.


The Impact

In the last year I worked on different website designs, some were static generated websites, other complex CMS solutions.. and I have to admit that this engine make my day!

We need your help to bring Pigeon to the masses all over the world! Your contribution will be used for fixing the legal aspect of the service here in Italy (you have no idea how hard it is!) and to improve stability and reactivity. We are also planning to build an API infrastructure to easily manage and create forms directly from your App!
