We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I'm a Kansas City maker and member of Kansas City's hackerspace, CCCKC (c3kc.org) and work from Hammerspace (hammerspacehobby.com), our local community workshop. I've been working on open source hardware and software for over 5 years now and I've loved every minute of it!
