Re: New Modified progress report

A lot of busywork on the site: 1) Added events, competitions and results. It's still not designed, but it's quite functional. http://i47.tinypic.com/jpu0c5.jpg http://i45.tinypic.com/23idst3.jpg (As you can see, each result can be accompanied by a video. It can also be accompanied by a text descript...

Re: New Modified progress report

New feature in the making, communities . It's basically the same as the feed at the front page, only that you can make your own feeds. Kind of like a facebook group. For example, I made a feed for session time information for Israel (or just any general chatter) http://footbagfront.com/feeds/israel ...

Re: Israel Footblog - Training program

I've finished my set today, had a pretty good session. I'll try to map out the results from all the sessions tomorrow and see where I'm standing. I filmed my clippers and osii to get an idea of where I'm at, and posted the videos on a feedbacks page I created on the site I'm working on http://footba...

Re: New Modified progress report

The site seems static as new features are harder to notice now, but I've been working as usual. 1) Added kudos to comments 2) When you import your modified.in blog, it won't import posts that you already imported (so you can import more than once if you want) 3) Users list can be sorted by distance ...

Re: New Modified progress report

Thanks! I'll try to keep my chin up :) Anywho, progress is slow bug constant: 1) Added a first-time-user dialog for when someone visits the front page for the first time 2) Added ability to edit articles 3) Added ability to put articles in categories 4) articles list is sorted according to categorie...

Re: Israel Footblog - Training program

Here's what's been going on lately: Olaf Piwowar was here for a short visit. He hasn't played in a year, broke his fast with me and blew my mind. I'm still boggled by how some people are simply more gifted in some things than other. It's almost as if we did two different sports. But my runs were sol...

Re: New Modified progress report

I put the site on http://footbagfront.com Here's a depressing setback: In the process of working on some system administration task, which admittedly is not my expertise, I managed to wipe the database clean, including all the automatic backups. In my defense, the action I was taking sounded harmles...

Re: New Modified progress report

It occurred to me today that there's a middle ground between a totally equal membership to a strict hierarchy of members and admins: A points system, where new users start with zero points, and certain actions can earn you points. Every x points, you unlock a site privilege, all the way up to full a...

Re: New Modified progress report

I already created an author privilege, but all the options are still open - the community policy is a big conversation and we might change things as we go along, that's fine and not a technical difficulty at the moment. I want to tackle another aspect of the project that I think can make the site re...

Re: New Modified progress report

Articles is sort of ready (not yet sure it's bug-free, and some stuff are missing, like sorting, categories...) Admins can mark users as authors, who get permission to write articles. Articles have public and publish status: public - with it, the article is visible to non-members. without it, only m...

Re: New Modified progress report

I want to implement an articles system, and have a number of dilemmas on how to do it exactly. Dilemma #1: How do we make a system that makes contribution painless and doesn't require a lot of manual labor by mods? Off the top of my head, here are some possible options: 1. Everybody can write an art...

Re: New Modified progress report

You can look up available domains here: http://www.namecheap.com. Price should be reasonable of course.

I am so terrible with names that I forbid me from polluting this specific discussion.

Re: New Modified progress report

What if we make posts featured instead of blogs, and a like (or "kudos" in the site-speak) is like a vote to make it featured, and every period of time, the site randomizes a bunch of the newest posts with the most likes to be featured, and admins can step in and automatically include a post in the ...

Re: New Modified progress report

Nothing will be lost - the site is hosted on amazon's cloud service, so as long as it's alive (half the internet is there so they better stay alive), the content will be alive as well. The current url simply points to it, and any future url will do the same. I can do featured blogs, technically it's...

Re: Upgrading modified

Blog posts are private by default (someone requested this of me) so you have to be a registered user, logged on to see them. I didn't think anyone would join in the project until it's out there and successful, so I'm not as worried. I'm more worried about publicizing it at the right time and having ...

Re: Upgrading modified

I wrote an import script for modified blogs. It's working. I didn't plan on doing it before the first release, but I had an idea on how to quickly do it without accessing the database and wanted to try it out. You can see the results on my blog . I'm pretty happy with the outcome, I think I covered ...

Re: Upgrading modified

I imported to the site all videos from my video feed database, so the site has a shitload of videos, some of them even tagged correctly.
Also, email sending works, and I put it on a nicer domain for now:
