Prepping for an upgrade
« on: Sep 21, 2007, 09:47 am »
So it's been a couple of years since the old php-nuke version of SMNetwork crashed, burned, and vanished from the web.  I have been promising since then that I would bring back all the stuff that was lost.  (Articles, Links, Philippa the fish, etc.)

I've finally managed to carve out some time over the next few months to start redesigning the site.  I'm tinkering with the layout on my development server and planning new and devious ways to make you guys happy.

As I move forward, I'll need some volunteers:

1. Beta Testers

I'll want a nice group of 10 people or so who visit the site a lot and would be willing to test out and give feedback on the new site.  Folks with some web design knowledge would be preferred, although some folks who generally have no clue as to what goes into coding would also be good.  This would be a short-lived project, as I hope to launch the new site before the end of the year.

2. Article authors

I'm stealing a page from here and hoping to get some folks writing actual articles/blog entries for the main page of the site on a rotating basis.  I'd like to have at least one new article each week.  So, I'm hoping to put together a group of authors from the site's membership who are willing to write about five articles a year for SMNetwork.  You can write more than that or less than that, the articles don't need to be long, and they can be about anything you think might interest the site's members.  Selected authors would get a special designation under their name in the forums.

The authors group will have continually rotating membership.  This project will be ongoing, but with a low time commitment.

If you're interested in joining either group, shoot me a PM.
