Our storySeventeen months ago we felt we were living in a remarkable time. A time where the impossible was just a term for untested ideas, a time in which the future had became the present, and our minds could be open to its fullest extent. We felt that the Internet could break boundaries of thoughts and we could unite our differences to grant us a highly enabled future. We believed that if we could only have a tool for better expressing our real selves this would give us unlimited possibilities, unleash our potentials and empower us to revolutionize this futuristic world we live in.
We believed... and we realized that we would actually have to turn all of this into a reality. We then made a list with all the cutting edge technologies the Internet has to offer, and started scratching the proverbial surface as to how to combine these technologies with our own ones to create a new and unique platform, a web platform that would allow us to be expressive creative beings as never before.
Aquari has grown from a concept in late 2012 to a huge website with highly innovative features. After 17 months fully dedicated to Aquari's development we finished it, and we are very excited with the end result. A social network where you can create and share anything simply and beautifully. Today, we're thrilled to introduce Aquari and welcome you to an incredible way to share your stories, be creative and keep in touch with your friends. But our hunger for bringing people to the future hasn't yet begun to be satisfied. Now it is time for you to believe.
All Open SourceWe are proud to say we used only open source applications and technologies to build Aquari. Some of the tools we used and love are: GIMP, Inkscape, KDE (Kate, KDEnlive, KSnapshot, Krita, etc), LibreOffice, Ubuntu Linux and many more.
No video ads, everWe dislike it as much as you do, it breaks the flow of watching a nice video, therefore you will never have to skip/close ads to get to what you want to see.
What Browsers does it work on?We are committed to delivering the best and latest technology for you, unfortunately we are limited in browsers that support hi-tech features. As we are at a Beta stage, support will improve over time and we are working at giving you more Browser's options.
Below are the browsers that can handle the Aquari fun:
- Opera 15>
- Google Chrome
- CodeWeavers CrossOver
- Comodo Dragon
- Co Rom+
- Epic Browser
- Flock 3>
- SRWare Iron
- Superbird Browser
- Titan Browser
Why $30,000?We have everything set-up and ready to go, we just need a server that can handle Aquari.
Why Flexible Funding?We require at least $30,000 for our servers, and Flexible Funding allow us to receive donations either by credit card or debit card, while Fixed Funding only allow us to receive by PayPal.
What if I don't have moneyYou loved the project but you can't help with money at the moment, that’s fine, you can help us a ALOT by sharing it with your friends, to spread the Aquari word :)
How long will it take?We are going to need only one month to set up the server and start running Aquari.
To be more precise we will launch the Beta version on July 01, and the 1.0 version on January 01 2015. We will try our best to make it sooner.
