Guys, I have been approached by a woman who is in the process of starting up a new business/site. The business is non-profit and from my opinion its for a GREAT cause. I cant really get into what the site is for just yet…because she hasnt told me much yet. I know that the site is to be informative, the sites main goal is to raise awareness on certain issues, but she also is thinking about adding a “myspace-ish” community section. I suggested a normal website, with a forum and she is dead set on the community being more myspaced based with people being able to have an account with friends. I dont know if she wants to get crazy with customizable profiles, and pictures, blogs and all that other stuff. This is why I was looking more towards a CMS , but I am finding it hard to be able to make a CMS site look like we need it to. The basic templates are too simple, or too overused. We need something unique. This is where you guys come in.
I am in need of some people to do various tasks. I will probably need someone with awesome CSS & PHP knowledge… I was looking into having the site run by a CMS but I cant wrap my head around those things. So I would need someone to turn a pre-made design into a working CSS site, with a possibility of page being a template for one of the major CMS systems out there. Probably Joomla, Drupal or something similar.
The thing is the site will need to be easy to navigate, and standards compliant. But I want it to have elements of flash. Very clean but usable flash elements. Bobocels newest file, the image slideshow thing with 10 pictures, a slideshow option, and the captions would be something that could be used.
I know I am rambling, but I’m looking for anyone that may be down to jump in , in the future…this is not donation work…it is a paying gig, I didnt put it on that job board that just went up because technically its not a job YET . But I was looking for some feedback from you guys…I was wondering if anyone would be down to assist in this effort.
If you are great with CSS and CMS , or just want to be down on the flash side, reply to this…give me some info on your opinions of the site, Ill write down everyones names and contact you guys when the site starts up.
I cant stress this enough, it sounds a little funny, but from what I’m hearing from this lady and other people associated, this site has a serious possibility of being HUGE !
Support will get back to you, it just takes a little bit. My first deposit didnt show up. I refreshed the page like a maniac every 2.3 minutes, and after about a half hour I stopped. I checked an hour later and it was there…
Try signing out and then signing back in, if that doesnt work give it some time it will either show up sometime today, or support will contact you.
Ya, I have been dying to get my hands on one for quite some time now…I am a video editor, and the basic editing can work on any one of the Macs out right now. But I mean BASIC …And I am now getting into motion graphics, compositing, and 3D design, and that is all serious CPU killing stuff. So I do think I need a Mac Pro, or a Macbook Pro, I just want to hold out because I know as soon as I buy it, they are going to come out with the new line. I know thats always the case in electronics, things are always being upgraded etc. And I have no problem with the same machine with an upgraded CPU , or video card, hard drive space, memory etc. But I have a feeling as soon as I buy it, they are going to release the G6, and I am going to punch myself in the face for not waiting a month longer ya know?
@ADG3 – The thing is I dont think I would really need to upgrade much in the future, with the price of external hard drive becoming so cheap, I cant see the need so the iMac would work. But I dont know how well it will handle my video stuff. I know I will probably be fine with the iMac for web, and graphics. I just also need video to be smooth. Which is where my hesitation for the Mac Pro comes in. The big benefit about the iMac is the beautiful 24 inch monitor that pretty much comes with the computer, where as the Mac Pros are a bit more money and then you also have to worry about the monitor as well. I was also looking into the MacBook Pros, but I am afraid they also wont be as powerful as I need them to be for video, and the monitor again is no bigger than 17, unless I hook it to another monitor externally. But I own a 19 inch gateway widescreen, its nice, but I want one of those bright cinema displays!
@Bobocel – Could you tell me more about the upgrades to the MacBooks, what integration are they going to have with the iPhone because that could be the deal breaker right there. I need a laptop to be able to work when I am not at home, and worse case I could always do my video stuff on my PC like I am now. If there is something awesome coming out that will work with my iPhone that isnt around now it may lead to me getting a MacBook Pro! Plus waiting will allow me to get the new OS for free
