Does anyone know exactly what Street Jelly is? Do they get together any more? I am not interested in doing it, just curious. I heard a little about it, but not exactly sure how it is done.

It is a place that allows live or prerecorded presentations by individuals. BillyG was a fan and participant and wrote the following on the other forum:
OK folks, we've had a few forum members sharing their playing live on http://www.streetjelly.com for a number of years - in fact since around August 2014 - (even raw beginners, like myself at the time, took part) but over the last year or so, interest seems to have dwindled. The StreetJelly platform was originally drawn to our attention by @Barry Nelson - good man, and thank you brother - although his own musical journey has now moved on to greater and better things!
Some good time back I started an event called "Strings on Sunday" on SJ and tried to make it clear that, from the title and when I started the thread here, that anyone interested in playing and sharing (generally with forum friends from here - either in the audience or actually taking part), should just "jump in, and advertise their intention to play" on any Sunday, without myself or Mandy or Barry actually having to say "let's have another SoS get-together".
I added my two cents to that thread, back in October of last year. But nothing came of that.
Just got introduced to StreetJelly by @BillyG yesterday, and I really think it needs to be resurrected again! Hopefully it can get back into full swing by the time I'm good enough to join it! I understand some of the founding members have moved on to other things, but that doesn't mean it can't have a resurgence.
I remember a conversation between BillyG and Mandy a couple years ago. It seemed awfully complicated as to how anyone joined in, getting the time zones coordinated, etc. It just sounded like a lot of time just to get started. I would not do it, I have stopped recording myself, but I was not sure why it stopped because I remember BillyG and Mandy doing it.
I wonder what great things Barry has moved on to. He is one of the first members of Violaman. He has some interesting posts.
