    ey guys, as you might have already known, i have been thinking of making a website/community project for gamers, the general idea is for gamers from all around the world to come together to talk about anything about games, whatever game and on whatever platform, this is going to be a very large and informative community of gamers.
    but people who would be joining will of course be mostly pc gamers like yourselves :)

    we are getting ideas at the moment to add into the functionalities of the site and forums,
    we have came up so far with clan systems, clan/player rankings for a specific game.
    the site will include clan management, player/clan prizes will be awarded for their achievements.

    so if there are any supporters announce on the forums who you are and why you would like to help in the project.
    also tell us things that you can do, i am looking for php/html/javascript/flash and people with a good knowledge of sql.

    i am going to interview (sounds like a job xD) 6 people to take administrator places to look after and take responsibility for the site (these people must have extensive knowledge in webdesigning, maintenance, backup, security, user managment, and media management
    and 15 mods to look after things like forums or clans, ranking systems and etc

    Well um I don't know much of the languages your talking about but i can do fourms, i have admined lots of forums and game servers so i know about admining and getting them set up. I could help with HTML if you or sombody else gave me a cash course on how it works. I know how to use flash, photoshop, and illistrator to an extent but have only learned the basics of em (but i don't got em...).

    Craig,

    I'd be interested in helping out.

    Since I haven't a heavy knowledge of modern flash/java web design, I might not meet the criteria for an active administrator, though feel free to 'interview.' I'd take a simple moderator position if need be.

    I can also donate time to handle technical issues for the forums, computing and peoples games and online gaming issues, as well as bring in knowledge of past and present FPS or MMO applications.


    Feel free to PM with comments or concerns.

    its no problem, we should get a few of us to set up a "help" forum i.e. graphics and games problems, i wouldn't mind doing that

    Priorities currently are? :


    Determine hosting network(s)
    Determine staff
    Determine site properties (including games database; based on - age, popularity, genre? etc.)
    Determine site layout (will it include an active ladder system?)
    Determine initial level of site function (i.e. do you want to publish it in a crude ( simple ) but working form, or wait until it's more glamorous before inviting people to view/join the community?)
    Determine forum layout and initial level of function (same consideration(s) as site function above)
    Determine established and miscellaneous web and gaming associate sites, to help with site costs and increased traffic/site attention. i.e. find reputable partners.

    Host (hold off on any 'download' servers in the meantime)
    Publish site
    Publish forums (hold open sticky site/forums suggestion/requests thread for at least one month)
    Publish ladder
    Publish download database (user submission of data acceptable after moderation approval)



    The list is much longer and more intricate, but that's a route I would take.

    Little things like forum 'rules,' would be squeezed in there, at first in more of a cliche manner, then later refined.

    so this is sorta like your own clanbase ?? when i imagine the perfect gamer clan site i imagine something specific per game. like a cod4 clan ladder site. 8 clans with no more than 40 active members per clan. all clans and clan members sign up and manage their clans through the website. each clan plays the other 3 times in an round robin and then the clans are ranked and put into a tournament to decide the best clan. this will be done for domination, team death match and headquarters. players stats are saved and tallied on the website so that clan members can see how they rank on an individual basis against the other clans and their clan members.
