Personally, I'm not a fan of a wiki...

However, a Hack Index would be a good idea.  This would be a place documenting the various hacks.  I figure there'd be a couple overall categories - Remixes and Reworks.

Remixes are basically all we've got right now - they're hacks that keep the story intact, but change things like enemy drops, or perhaps additional areas.
Reworks take the engine and basically make a new game with it.  It could be GS in nature, or it could be something totally different.

We'd also have the top rated in each category show up, but the main point is to give a summary of the hack to give people a better understanding of what to expect when they download it.

For all the people that said they wanted to help, there sure is a lack of applications in my message box.

My HTML is waaaay rusty, and sadly, I'm not that great at describing things too well.  Usually takes two or three tries to get the other person to realize what I'm trying to say.  Sad, really...

But I can make suggestions.  Like I said, I'm not a big fan of a Wiki.  I mean... what would we say?  No, leave the wiki to GSU's wiki.  Instead, we should have a comprehensive Hack index, which goes in depth into what you can find in each of the hacks available for download.  It could be done wiki-like, sure, but I think it's something we should have.  That way, people can make an informed decision as to what downloads they want to use and which ones they wanna pass on.

Not everyone wants a crazy hard hack, after all.  Likewise, some people may want to play a new game, rather than a remake of the old game.  That guide idea can help people figure out which ones are the right ones for them.

As for the actual website, though... I ain't gotta clue as to how it should be done.  I can help with colors and all, and maybe some suggestions as to arrange it in a more user-friendly fashion, but...

The idea is to keep it as integrated with the forums as possible, so it's going to pull it's style straight from the forum's themes matching with whichever one the user has selected.

Knowledge of HTML is not needed to apply.

The Hack index would be nice if we had the time & willingness to play through each and every hack submitted.  No, it's up to the creator to properly describe, and advertise their hack in it's description when they upload it to the download system, which I eventually want to redesign to give it more of that hack index feel you want.  It does still depend a lot on the creators knowing how to advertise their submissions, but I'd like to add a review system as well so other people can help them out some if they feel the need.  It would also be nice to maybe do monthly hack awards if we ever have enough activity to justify it, and most underrated hack listings every so often for good ones that get overlooked.

Oh, that's cool.  I agree with the review system as well.  Not just a ratings system, though, but a fully fledged review system.  You cannot rate it without writing a review - this way we don't have people spamming bad or good ratings just because they can.

Also... not sure about monthly.  Quarterly sounds more reasonable, until the v1.0 comes out.  When it's out, we should be able to do a LOT more, so it'd be much easier to get these things out there.

I mean, I've got three hacks I wanna work on:  The Community Hack, my Personal Hack, and my GS:LAR project.  But until we get at least to V0.3, I really can't do much with them.

I have a question or two...

1. Will we be able to see the options from underneath out avatar(s) (under the banner) on the website?

2. How many people have applied? From what it sounds, nobody seems to have the time to help out.

Have a nice day.

Edit: Silly me, I already know the answer to question 1 (and they are still at the top).

I've only received one application so far.

For all you people who said you wanted to help, I can't really trust you to submit anything if you're too lazy to send in an application, can I?

I can aid in writing anything not actually hacking related (haven't really been doing much anyways), such as main site sections. I also can serve as a proofreader for all sections.

Hm... I would apply, but there are two problems: 1) I'm still not entirely sure what we'll be writing (if it's gonna be stuff like the application, I'd rather just leave that to the wiki-ites, since it seems much more appropriate for that kind of thing anyway), and 2) I'm somewhat lazy. If I could get #1 clarified, #2 might solve itself, though =p

At the moment I just want to set up some basic information on the games themselves, as well as the editor.  I'm not really looking for gigantic walls of text that describe everything in detail like you would see in a wiki, just a paragraph or two that serves as a brief overview.  I do not want theoretical, or opinionated articles right now.  Perhaps after the basics are up we can expand into in-depth articles relating to hacking the games, but for now I really just want to focus on getting some basic information on them, and editor up there.

Eh... I think I'll pass for now. I take on too many projects as it is. I might be interested in helping out later, though.

I'll help if I can, but I'm not the kind of person that can do data entry for extended periods of time. I have basic HTML knowledge, but anything that requires improvisation will be beyond me.

I know, but I figured that even if it wasn't required, it might help. Less work for the main programmers, right?

The website uses php coding, just basic html knowledge wouldn't be quite enough.
