modified/footbag forums are still alive, but we’re making an effort to take the “footblogs forum” and actually do the concept of a footblog justice. Instead of using a dedicated forum thread, each player gets their very own WordPress installation (e.g. https://modified.in/yourname). The primary, root-level WordPress site acts as a conduit for people’s posts across the network: utilizing BuddyPress to tie all of the disparate blog sites into a single activity stream, we get the best of both worlds: silos for our posts where we have our themes and our own content, but there’s also a place where all of your activity is displayed for other members of the network and the public.
Given that this is all pretty basic WordPress stuff, we’re hoping that this project will be fully compatible and transferrable to any new developments that arise from efforts being made elsewhere, specifically Footbag Worldwide.
