Hello, fellow MapleTippers! This thread is to discuss my currently-in-progress site, onlySoaa.

News!

October 5th, 2007, at around midnight EDT, a preliminary version of the site has been released. Note that this isn't the official release, so don't expect everything to work or look good. Note that the site will need to go through extensive debugging even after the release, at which point I will have a forum set up just for that. Note that I also updated the progress information.

Check it out -> http://onlysoaa.com

Content:

- Information about me, my interests, my thoughts on the happenings of the world and various hand-picked interesting stories along with my commentary.
- Discussion forum to talk about just about anything. The site is called onlySoaa, but it isn't just about me.
- Image gallery for members to post pictures and art.

Coding:

- Truly valid XHTML 1.0 Strict. I won't be lazy with this one.
- PHP/MySQL-based.
- I will code everything you see. I don't like prefabricated software.
- The forum will be innovative in its own little way, to promote open discussion. You'll see what I mean.
- Much of the site will rely on the forum framework.

Planned features:

- Community-driven. Members ask, I'll do my best to code.
- AJAX-enabled elements, like a shoutbox or posting replies.

Site philosophy:

- KISS. Keep It Simple, Stupid.
- No bloat, all content. Smilies will never be implemented in any way.
- Feature-bloat will be avoided at all costs and new features will only be implemented once finished and polished for best user experience.
- Promoting open discussion is a central point in my site. Off-topic discussions are encouraged, provided they follow guidelines.

Once I have something to show, I'll put it up on my domain. For now, progress information. Anything over 60% works, anything over 90% works acceptably well.

Install system - 100%
Module system - 80%
Registration and login - 80%
Forum framework - CURRENTLY RESTRUCTURING - 30%
Blog system - 60%
Gallery system - 0%
Administration system - 0%

I expect a first release on September 30th The first official release will take place on Obtocer 14th, but due to college and such, there may be delays. I'll keep this post updated with progress information.

Last but certainly not least, the site is be located at http://onlysoaa.com.

Bwahahahah. ;] I was replying in all the threads. o:

I'm finally going to drop the Nested Trees and go for a simpler, albeit less flexible approach at tree handling.

(btw, you should come back on MSN more.) ;]

Wow, this sounds so professional and interesting. I want to see what the layout is like so badly~

You have some great ideas there. Community-driven, especially. I like the feature of a gallery, too. I may be posting some pictures there. ;x

I can't really offer any ideas or such, if you even wanted some; this cold is messing up my thinking. x: But it looks like you know what you're doing, anyway, so you don't really need any help from me. Keep working on it, I want to see it ASAP. <33

Wait, questions; Will your site have ads? And what will your forum be hosted through? (ProBoards, InvisionFree, etc, etc.)

I wouldn't need to work on my forum if I had one already... mush1o.gif I'm building it from scratch for better integration with the rest of the site.

And you got a cold. >; -hugs- Get well soon!~ <3

OH WHATEV'. The site will be up eventually.

Hehe, I'm fine with my code. Even though this is my first PHP site, I'm keeping all the important stuff in mind, code polish, security, ease of use...

I added you though, we can discuss just about anything related (or not) to the subject. mush1o.gif

Well, I thought that it was a pun because of the site Google, so I hope that'll make you feel better. =P

Um, yes, seeing at my non-existent knowledge, your site seems, er, very well made...

I like the picture on the Under Construction picture. =D

Hehe, at least some people are stupid enough to get the joke. mush1k.gif

Really, the technicality all adds up to simpliticy and function, and mostly a user-oriented site.

Judging by your signature you should have a beautiful site. I;ve been informed by my computer science teacher that <5% of the site is actually read by the people there.

Arrrrgh. I haven't had time (nor motivation) to work on my site, so unfortunately, it will be delayed. How long? Two weeks from now, I promise the site will be functional to a good level. I might put up some stuff before then, so be sure to stay up-to-date.

The first official release of the site will take place on Sunday, October 14th. By that date, I hope to have a functional blog and forum.
