Do I HAVE to sign up?
It's really the only way to keep track of the Tends you receive and send.
Also, there are still people who say mean things and we want to minimize that.
Having an account encourages people who might act badly to think twice.
We don't sell your data or spam you, so you're safe from that here.
TendOrama offers a way to express gratitude
We all believe the world is better when people are rewarded.
See more about why TendOrama exists
People shift from, "TendOrama is kind of neat," to realizing they must get into it:
When they realize people they know are Tending and feeling happy about it.
Really, that's the main reason.
Sometimes people shift to "must have it" when they realize they might be missing out on receiving Tends.
When they realize people they know are receiving Tends at work, especially for those who interact with customers, clients, and patients or their families.
When they realize competing publishers are receiving Tends and they aren't.
When they realize people are receiving Tends on any of the other platforms TendOrama supports, like TikTok and Twitter.
To enrich the lives of everyone in TendOrama's world.
Because we exist in a capitalist environment, to earn a reasonable profit by acting according to our Mission, Vision, and Values.
TendOrama lets people Tend and receive Tends as easily as possible.
People in TendOrama's world are glad they got involved, feel enriched because of it, and believe the world is better with TendOrama.

People are good.
Humans, like many other species, are born with a set of basic morals, including an urge to be kind, an urge to share, and a sense of fairness. This is well-researched. We didn't just dream it up :)
People feel good when they get to act according to those morals and bad when they don't get to.
Tending adds to the world.

About the webapp, TendOrama.com:
The TendOrama you see isn't meant to be particularly pretty. We're focusing on making it useful.
We chose to offer TendOrama as a website only. Apps can be annoying, don't add all that much to your experience, and often seem to be gathering information about you unnecessarily.
If you prefer TendOrama to look and act like an app, just add it to your HomeScreen. (Search "Add to homescreen your device").
