    I think a gopher CGI page would be very doable with Python, so you may as we am a weirdo.

    Alright, I'll give it a try. Been wanting to write a cgi guestbook for my gopherhole. Other things, too, but I think a guestbook's a good place to

    I thought Gopher was more of a read-only type protocol, no?

    Have you played with modifying Synchronet gopherservice.js?

    Yes, but the protocol supports queries. Queries were designed for searches afaik, but some people use queries for feeding CGI scripts with instructions.

    So you could send the script a query with a sentence in it, and the script could store such sentence in a guest book.

    Please share your code. I've attempted to get other guestbook code from gopher IRC channels. No one really wants to share and usually I'll receive a response like 'figure it out yourself.'

    I found the gopher community on irc to be nowhere near helpful.

    All the guestbooks I've signed on gopher holes are typically that. You fill out your message on the 'field' and it submits your text in the page below after the refresh. I've wanted one on my phlog where each entry has a guest book fashioned as a comment section.
