I've actually been thinking about this and talking to a few people. But my idea was to make it easier to post the site by ... using wordpress instead of what we have. Now I am confused. The site already has wordpress? Wordpress is clumsy?
I thought that posting to a wordpress blog was as easy as posting to the bb, and so I thought that maybe more people would post then.
Try going to http://wordpress.com/
and signing up for a blog. It only takes a second, just sign up under a madeup name and then make a post with some gibberish in it just to see what it's like. You just press the New Post button and then type into the box. Do we already have this on the site? If the text is running into itself is that a stylesheet issue?
My idea was actually to replace the whole site with a wordpress blog. It would be a group blog that lots of different people can get their own accounts for and post to. Hopefully the site would become a stream of information about what goes on at forest. Like, events postings from Dai, working group meeting reminders and minutes, Golden Hour posters from Ryan, Bounce posters from Danny, the theatre group, etc. etc., everyone's stuff would just get posted and go into one stream. Then you would really have a one-stop site to see what goes on at the forest. If everyone posted to it.
The point is that all people have to do is click Post, type into the box, then click Publish. And yet the blog automatically organises it all into a stream that you can scroll up and down, and even archives the old posts for us and gives us an RSS feed. So we ought to get a site that is comprehensible to navigate but that is still all eclectic because of the range of different people posting different things. Could it work?
(P.S. I just looked at your Collective page Danny, if it is indeed a wordpress blog that is running that it looks like one with a serious stylesheet issue. We could just choose a cool theme from here http://themes.wordpress.net/
and then customise it to make it forest).
I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!
