Done another app review for Nextcloud, this time looking at Forms:

growyourown.services/review-of

Forms lets you create your own online surveys with all kinds of questions (multiple choice, text boxes, calendars, buttons, dropdowns etc).

Because it runs entirely on your Nextcloud, the data never goes anywhere else, and there are no ads or trackers.

It's a good privacy-friendly alternative to Google Forms or SurveyMonkey.

@homegrown LMAO. WHEN I REGISTERED BOUT 4 MO. AGO I DIDNT HAD IT, AND EVEN THEN OFFICIAL SERVER WAS MARKED AS ABANDONWARE/OUTDATED :'D . BRUH, STOP SKEMMING, OKAY?

@homegrown yes but their official server doesnt have and is outdated
im saying about sam.nl.tab.digital server, preferred for me in official nextcloud site ofc...

@homegrown and generally nextcloud site slowy and lookin skemmy ;p . for the now testing proton but i think will be hard to use on free version lool

@hacknorris

I don't think Nextcloud have any official servers?

Did you sign up on a third party server?

@homegrown they choose one with probably best connection or nearby, official. tab is even partner of nextcloud. now u see...

@hacknorris

I test all these apps on my own Nextcloud server. It runs fine, and I'm just using a cheap managed hosting option.

Some of the free third party servers are slow, because they're providing a free service.

@hacknorris

You mean the sign up tool on nextcloud.com?

The one that goes to free sites is really random, some of those free sites are very slow, yes.

@homegrown i understand slow, but 3 versions (not patches) ago, 3 year old server not updated even once is enugh :/

@hacknorris

That problem is with the provider, though, not the software maker.

Tell Nextcloud that this provider is broken, so they can remove it from the list?

@homegrown lmao but how? they do everything so only mod of server can sign out but he is unreachable, if even findable...

@hacknorris

As the link says though, someone somewhere has to pay for "free" accounts.

If you want a service to be reliable and privacy-friendly, paying for the account is the most sustainable way of doing this.

@homegrown WHAT IF I DONT USE ONLINE MONEY? have you ever thought about it? that im between 26 and 18 so im legal on platform but not 18+ so can pay ? o.O

@hacknorris

Someone has to pay for the server, it takes electricity and human labour to keep it going.

Google etc are only "free" because they sacrifice their users' privacy.

If you want a private online service, someone somewhere has to pay for it in real money.

@homegrown he didnt understood.
EY , DO YOU USE BITCOIN MAYBE? OR ETHER? HOPE

@homegrown oof, cause this could be my only source of money cuz im under fucking aged, sorry, only this and also in fully illegal way ;p

@homegrown I rather like that, very flexible and versatile. I also like Polls, they somewhat overlap in functions.

@homegrown That's a fast, responsive Web site, even on mobile. It's a pleasure to read.

@markusl

Aww, thank you!

I tried to make the site as basic as possible while still keeping it colourful and friendly.
