The NZA Posted April 6, 2005 Share Posted April 6, 2005 Ok, so ive been working on 2 ideas for the last sections ive really sought to update/overhaul, and i think ive got somethin. Chat: As seen here, there's obvious interest in a Hondo's chat being regularly opened for those who dont have the patience to reply to topics in crap shack, and we're all for ways to bring each other together, but weve gone through a series of failed programs. So, rather than purchase/install another, we've got a few options. 1) Our servers provide a free, java-based one right here. It's not very pretty, and you can pretty much type your name as anyone...but it is free, and most folks should be able to run it. 2) We go with an outisde program that most of the board members interested in chatting have, such as AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, MSN etc. AIM seems to be the most popular, and Ruby says this line'll work as a sufficient link if you've the program installed: aim:goChat?roomname=Hondos+Bar ..but again, i (and i think, others here) use Trillian, so that doesnt work for us. Still, we could just be online and be invited to the room by Metal or whoever's got it goin, lemme know what you guys think of these options. Member List/Profiles: Yeah, dante's gonna cry soon if he doesnt get some pics, but then again, its a big project he's looking to possibly undertake, and were still trying to work it into the bar theme. Personally, the idea of a world map thing is cool, but its gonna be a lotta pins on south florida, and a few in other places...again, coudl be cool, i just dont want us to look like were only based here, or clique-ish. A theme's nice, too, but i want as many cool pics as you guys want to share; this kinda thing, ill make room on our servers for. Only, Ive yet to see a solid template, and even then, id like you guys to be able to be creative with it, too. So, what do you think? Should we shoot for a bar, or some other theme, from our profile section? Or, what if we just linked to an outside site, like MySpace.com, where a growing number of members are already setting up pics, interests, etc? It doesnt look like theyre goin anywhere for awhile, so its an option, too...if nothing else, we could at least lift some of their ideas for profiles & customization & such.
