I am going to start coding / implementing the new elYsiun.com in about 2 weeks. The next two weeks I hope to get a good idea on what should be available and how it should be implemented. For this I hope to get some of your suggestions.
The main idea for the new elYsiun.com is to make it a website for the Community BY the Community. Some plans that [email protected] and Zycho had for Community 3.0 will also be incorporated into this website. The main ideas I have sofar are as followed:
Complete integration with the Forum
This means elYsiun.com will make use of the current membership options as on the forum. Some extra personal info will be added and some personal info will be removed. Al interactive activities on elYsiun will make use of this membership system (posting messages, voting, chatting, etc).
Easy to use Content management system
Articles will be able to be written in a BBcode style manner. Images will be automaticly resized etc. Uploading these articles will much like posting a message in the forum, only with the added ability of file uploading, and a greater control over the outlook of the article, and the ability to post multiple pages.
Member moderation system
This is were it gets really interesting. EVERY member of elYsiun.com will be able to submit articles (news, specials, tutorials, galleries, etc). A group of selected moderators (perhaps different moderators for each section) will have the ability to actually make these submitted articles public after they have approved their content.
Basicly what I hope to achieve with this is that the community will provide interesting articles itself, in a controlled manner (quality over quantity).
Basicly I want to ask you if you have any suggestions for this new website. Any features you must have? This is the time to tell me.
Thanks And Greetings,
