Hey, the Blender Integration Effort and Free web spaces is almost ready to begin. I’ve already starting a few for testing purposes and such. They are seperate virtual servers, so if anyone has a domain name, or would like to or is planning on getting one, we can point it there. This would also allow for different configurations in the future.
Let me know what you think about the format. This is just an example of how it will look to see what people think (the stuff on the main part is just temporary) , the full site will be setup to prevent any orphaned frames, so you can bookmark to them and the such. With the community, the forums will be extremely specialized so as to prevent too much double info in posting between iptic and here at elysiun. An example would be, ‘linux and 3d’ or ‘linux and blender’ or ‘3d programming’…so that it will be easier for someone looking for an answer to find it…
Also I’m working to implement things such as a ‘skills database’, some type of setup for workgroups to meet and exchange data, and a few other things…I’m pretty tired right now…lol. People are shocked to find out someone is giving away 50MB FREE with NO FILE LIMITATIONS, NO ADS, and EMAIL, full CONTROL PANEL ACCESS, and so on. The reason is, is that I…I really don’t know. I just think there is potential in it, and I have nothing better to do…so why not do something cool.
As things grow I will grow the services and the server (servers maybe one day) along with the community. As of right now, I will be able to hold around 150+ sites, then will have to look at options to expand. I would eventually like to have a fully interactive, 3D community, in which all of us around the world can meet there and see avatars of each other (like adobe atmosphere) and interact just like we were there. Like a “Blender Lounge”…that would be cool…if anyone is good with interactive blender design and would be interested, let me know! 8)
