This is one place you can get support from other founders if you get rejected for the Summer 2018 batch. Once you share some basic details about your company you'll be ready to get feedback from other founders.
@awt I like how you're turning something negative into something positive. Disappointment is an inevitablity in the startup / entrepreneur journey and with a community like this, people can learn from their experiences to improve in future. It would be cool if the learnings were turned into content available for the public who want to apply in future and leverage the advice.

@awt @abadesi Definitely a good idea Abadesi. Maybe even interviews or other type of content revolving around the potential reasons of the rejection. That'd be invaluable for a lot of starters.

@thomaswang as far as the dashboard, it should show everything you submitted or voted on. What are you meaning by non-responsive? Perhaps something is not working correctly! my apologies for such an inconvenience...

@adv4nced well, that's awkward. Would you mind sending a screenshot to hq@seedproof.com so we can take a look? I just tried the registration and it worked okay so I'm not sure what's going on.

@adv4nced btw, were you using Signin with FB or your own account?
@adv4nced Did you launch a Kickstarter for this? I'd give that a shot before applying to YC. If you get solid traction on Kickstarter, it's going to be much easier to get into YC.
What a lovely website name :- ) I created a ProductHunt account just to say this. ... Hmm, is it somehow possible to join the community although I haven't applied for YC? Maybe as a visitor or guest member somehow?

@kajmagnus thanks for the nice words!! yes, absolutely. The YC group is semi-private but all you have to do is sign in with email/password or your social media: https://seedproof.com/global/login/
@awt Thanks! I just joined. (The comment reply email, for your comment, got placed in the Promotions Gmail tab so I didn't see it until now)
