    It has come to my attention that the main site, among other things, need changing. As Chief Technical Officer, I will start coordinating everyone and start getting thing going. Currently, Allomein and Ragter have been doing a great job with ideas and kicking my ass to get a few things done. Also, Mynameismonkey has given some wonderful information about the site and content management systems, or CMS's.

    Each area has been recruiting individuals for various tasks. I want to bring everyone, thats willing to help, together to make these site wide changes [more] permit.

    Originally I was assigned to make the main site with fully integrated features. As time went on, I was one of the very few working on the project. Shortly after integration the project stopped. With many more projects to code, I did not have the time. I have 2 full-time jobs, not including any free-lance work, and time is something I do not have a lot of. I hope many of you can understand where I'm coming from. So, from now on I will be taking more of a lead to get things going.

    I am asking every division, every member, and all your friends to pitch a helping hand. If you can help out in anyway, please PM me asap. The following is a list of jobs, skills, and talents needed for this project.

    I want to point out a few things about how the site will work. If I need to explain these in more detail, just ask.
    1. Easy to use and navigate
    2. I do NOT want a lot of sections (or modules) that take the user to a different layout/page. I want integration.
    3. Our forum is the heart of AoA, as such, everything being developed must have full integration support with PhpBB login (If needed).
    4. No cookie cutter site.
    5. Maintenance should be at a minimal (except content that must be updated daily).


    Inspirational words from our leader: Glow
    "Basically, the end result will be uniform, easy to maintain, and not gay."

    Sorry I lack any real tech skills here. I barely paid any attention in my computer science courses (I don't know how I managed to get so far). I hate coding so I'm no help there. If there were any bake sales, hey hey, then I'm your woman, that's if bake goods survive shipping. :D

    Well I am thinking about a bake sale, but I will definately have to test the product first. Send over a batch of chocolate chip cookies for beta testing.
