1. We need someone to lord over the site...not Mussolini-like, but someone to do the day-to-day type stuff. Talking with GS, we're in the camp that we'd like to contribute more than be everyday taskmasters, so if someone is willing to kind of be the point man and be hands on with it it would be appreciated.
2. Banner/photoshop work...I got ideas, but I figure we could use this thread as a collective brainstorm/throw crap against the wall and see if it sticks atmosphere.
3. Maybe a central email for the blog? gmail maybe? From my experience there will be requests, questions, and advertising opportunities abound.
4. A First Round Bust....twitter account? That's right....don't be afraid to dream big darling.
5. I mentioned this to GS...if we simply use the blog as an extension of the boards (GS's GST threads, Jarick's prospect updates, Opinion/Commentary/Tidbits, etc.) there is no reason why we can't crank out material on a regular basis. And if we have plenty of contributors, then no one person should feel like they have to shoulder the load.
Anyways...I think this is a good spot to discuss what could be a pretty good thing.
While I think that Blogspot may be a decent spot to start. If you want the site to be successful "we" need to think of a better way to present the information that you wish to.
In laments terms I think that it would be wise to discuss developing a new website in the near future.
I'm a novice web developer and would be willing to lend help when I have free time.
1. Let's not kids ourselves, it's going to be me. And that should be apparent since I took care of 2-5.
2. Right now it's a black and white version of Risebrough. I like to think that the Wild logo being the only thing in color represents the hope for the future. Or a wolfbearcat. Anyways, if anyone has a better idea I'm all ears.
Yeah, between releases at work... All things must be in by the end of the year, dotchaknow?
First question i have, though... is...
Are you paying for hosting or is it just through blogspot at the moment?
For most things, I use a pretty cheap hosting service that includes a CMS, Wordpress, e-Comm, and more. One thing that I was having an inkling of an idea is two things; Taking Jarick's xls and trying to create a SQL schema to support it and also maybe doing a high rez version of the Wildicorn logo and seeing what Cafe Press has to offer...
Edit; I just realized that I forgot to set my fantasy roster for the week. Talk about "no time"... wtf.
We could have a lot of us writing about different aspect of the team, like Jarick takes a statistical look at the team, CT looks at prospects, GS is the funny one, we each take a part of the team and can write about it either daily or weekly. That'd be cool.
That's sort of what I'd like to see. Everyone has their own little niche and that's great. Really anything other than long-winded recaps of the game is welcome. Let's be honest, there's enough of those out in the blogosphere.
That would make it much better to read, and with so many of us contributing, there would hopefully be updates close to every day.
I'd like to do a weekly piece on something, but just not sure what of. I was thinking something along the lines a who's hot, who's not thing where I look beyond the stats or something like. You know something like who's quietly been playing well?
