(1) "Show HN" is for projects that are the submitter's personal work. It doesn't look like this is the case here. The rules are at https://news.ycombinator.com/showhn.html.
(2) This account is part of a ring of abusive accounts that we banned a while ago, which is why the post was killed on submission and had to be vouched for by users. Generally that's a good thing, but in this case the situation wasn't so obvious.
All: using sockpuppet accounts to vote and comment on HN, in order to promote your site, will eventually get all your accounts and sites banned on HN. So please just don't.
Yes, it somewhat goes against the principle of absolute privacy, but I wouldn't mind the feature on my own server.
Alright, I’m sold..
I think it has to have automated capture. Get everything from email account, text messages and the calendar to fill out the relationship.
I know someone in the community is writing importers from several sources of data (Telegram, for instance).
The pricing for the hosted version seems a little steep though, especially for something based entirely on manual input. At $5/month that's about half of what I pay for office/onedrive, and more than I pay for 1password. That's a big ask for a service that falls more into the 'neat' category.
I didn’t know that either and have tried the iOS App once but did not upload anything to them, I just wanted to see what the App could do/how it feels like. Then I read their Privacy Police and ToS and did some searching. I very quickly decided that this is not a service I’d want to use.
So I send them a GDPR request demanding the deletion of my account and all associated data.
I had to send them a very stern email threatening legal action and mentioning some personal contacts I have to some federal law enforcement officer who works privacy cases to even get an answer that was more than ‘please use our privacy center to delete your data/account’.
Finally I got back some generic email stating that all my data was deleted. Some canned response thing though. I highly suspect that they still have my data on their system.
I highly suggest not to use the service of FullContact!
Start here? ;-)

Just even to remember all parents and kids names of the people I meet through my own 2 kids; at school, soccer,... it’s be great if there was a mature app for that
But it’d need an mobile app too.
To your second point: indeed this could be run locally instead, if one is that concerned about storing sensitive information online
I'm not against Docker, I run a whole cluster of Docker hosts as my job, but touting it as a solution to a hard install for a _php app_ is crazy.
Besides: You're cutting a whole lot of people off because this is apparently not installable on regular shared hosting, etc. Running a Container is even less of an option for these people. And then their only option is to use their hosted version, having to trust them.
Also: Running a Docker Container again requires me to add additional config, be it via labeling (when using reverse proxy with SD, e.g. traefik), or setting up a new nginx config file for that. No benefit in reality.
I'm not against having an additional Docker Image (I like those!) but these should only be considered a option for people who are looking for a Docker image explicitly.
So many projects seem to think a convoluted i stall is alleviated with a docker image. No! A docker image is good but it doesn't replace the need for a sensible native install.
HN is very frustrating when people flag articles not for their content, but for stupid reasons.
I assume it's because of the gender discussion below. Maybe you should flag the comments you dislike, instead of a perfectly fine Show HN?
its been posted one year ago and the rules clearly state that it should not be posted again, unless a major overhaul has been done

and there is no mention about that one year clause on the rules page. it should be added if thats the case.
Whops, my mistake, missed that (I had looked for other submissions earlier and just seen your link as "visited" and misremembered). The one year rule is in the general HN FAQ.
> Management of contact field types
> Ability to set custom genders
There's no way to please everyone with defaults, that's why things are configurable. Being so negative because they likely went with a simple majority config (from their perspective) by default for a field that is such a minor part of the whole system is ludicrous.
While I'm with you politically: If a narrow perception on gender was a reason for not using a specific software, I probably couldn't use any software at all.
AFAIK, Microsoft, Apple, Google and others don't give you more options in this regard either. So I find it quite harsh to abandon a small project like this but accept what you get from bigger companies.
Also, I am cisgendered, and it's important to me. So it's more than 1% of the population. Or do you believe that you have to be a member of a group to be bothered by things that affect them?
