    What's all this then?

    [21:17] <Eckels> i had an idea for a front page that i think would be awesome if it was a collaboration
    [21:17] <Shadowblazer> lay it on me ape man
    [21:17] <Eckels> all it would be is a front page, with links to like, ZC, SE and the forums
    [21:18] <Eckels> but it would be different with each refresh
    [21:18] <Eckels> and there could be a bank of like 50 or 100 pages
    [21:18] <Shadowblazer> oh my
    [21:18] <Eckels> nothing crazy, all simple, but kinda artistic
    [21:18] <Shadowblazer> that's... interesting
    [21:18] <Shadowblazer> yesss...
    [21:18] <Eckels> i thought it would be cool if we had a few people, like you, me, maybe JJmax, a few others
    [21:18] <Eckels> to come up with 10 or so pages
    [21:18] <Shadowblazer> yeah, I like that
    [21:18] <Eckels> and they'd all be put up as the main page
    [21:18] <Eckels> dig it?
    [21:19] <Shadowblazer> I could certainly whip something up
    [21:19] <Shadowblazer> definitely
    [21:19] <Eckels> yeah, i mean totally simple
    [21:19] <Eckels> i want to create a forum for it
    [21:20] <Eckels> which i'll probably do, and invite people to join in
    [21:20] <Eckels> not a public forum
    [21:20] <Eckels> but a staff forum
    [21:20] <Eckels> maybe we could allow public contests
    [21:20] <Eckels> for extra pages
    [21:20] <Shadowblazer> yeah, good idea
    [21:20] <Eckels> that would be cool too
    [21:20] <Eckels> ok i'll make the forum
    [21:21] <Shadowblazer> yay

    Ok so that's it in a nutshell..

    The pages can be as basic or as complicated, as dynamic or as static as you want them to be, but keep in mind they all have to be nothing more than a porthole to AG. A link to the forums, a link to ZC, and a link to SE.

    We would also have to decide on a few ground rules, like should each page be "signed" by the author? I thought that was a neat idea. What should the total filesize of the page and all necessary files be (for instance Flash, or Javascript files), and do we want universal compatibility (dumbed down code) on some of the more treat filled pages, or do we care little enough about that to let people have some uni-platform fun?

    any comments or questions please state em. If you're willing to join in this project, simply start a thread with your name as the subject. That will be your portfolio.

    Make sense?

    <Eckels> 70% of all statistics are made up on the spot
    <moocow> really?

    <Eckels> it's funnier and safer if i dont use my real penis

    [13:58] <Breaker\idiot> im not an idiot, eckels

    Awesome! I'm totally willing to contribute. I can't spend a shit load of time on this as I'm doing some college stuff, but I'll think of some things I could do. I'll make a "portfolio" topic whenever I do so. :)

    Oh man I am so going to do one of the following:

    • Become enthusiastic about the project and begin working on it, then get sidetracked and eventually miss the deadline
    • Submit a mediocre entry that will be ridiculed and rejected


    I really need to work on my motivation :)


    *edit* odd... I used the quick reply first and it looked like I made a post but then no post was there...

    I have read it before (and wanted to joke saying to ck that she mentioned it twice.)

    I don't usually post unless I have something of substance to say, but anyway...

    -The filesize shouldn't be too big for it might deter people on dial up. As for compatibilities, you have to see what OS s frequent the forums the most and take that into consideration.
    -You could make a contest out of it, the prize being the signature (or Premium for a couple of months for regular members.)
    -Some people could come up with ideas, but not with the programing. (In my case, it takes me too long to program the simplest page and time is something I lack.)
    -Just a porthole or a news page also as it was talked about several times?
    -I think your best bet is laying out a unified skeleton and giving free reign to creativity.

    Hey Eckels, you might want to make sure all the submissions are html compatible.

    And I still have that shotgun if you change your mind.

    I have some stuff made up, I just need to do the linking part and I'll submit them. Would've done so sooner, except my three boys have been keeping me distracted. :-)

    Woah, what an awesome idea. I wouldn't have ever thought of that.

    Hopefully I can make something nice and good to put on the main page. Good luck to everyone else as well.
