What is PicLyf?
Its a pictures only blogging platform where visual content is the focus of the community. Its designed to be a place where its not out of place to post pictures of any type from a webcam shot, a fancy DSLR photo, doodle, an old scanned photo, graphic design, videogame art, anime fanpic, etc.
It also addresses the problem of blogs being frequently abandoned thru badges, quests and fun community activities. It hooks up the Facebook, twitter, Flickr and a bunch of other API to let members use their existing social networks to jumpstart their picture blogs.
Try the site and support us if you like it cause we plan to give back to the Yii community as soon as we hit some financial milestones.
Let me know if you have any questions.

BTW, how is Twidl.it going?
Thanks @y!! and qiang! We switched gears and focused on PicLyf. Twidl it! was a Twitter accessory idea and sure enough 2 months after pivoting with PicLyf, twitter started trampling on Twitter based startups! We are more passionate about this idea anyway.
We like the name / domain and my philosophy is a great product will take any weird name into a memorable one. So we are busting our ass to make that happen and pretty soon this weird name will not be weird at all.

Thanks and congratulations, its a very good job!!
Hmm. If we disregard the previous product (the one we switched gears from - Twidl.it) Six months. We only reused very few modules from that build and im not sure if any of them were left untouched.
