It's broken and I can't be bothered fixing it with a new site on the way. The lack of time part is very true, though. Aaah.

There's one problem I have with the new site......if you make about three failed login attempts, it will suspend you for 15 minutes. There are some days where I'm really dazed, and I have trouble typing. I had to wait about 25 minutes because I kept making failed login attempts. It's obnoxious when I just want to browse the site!!

It's there for your own protection. There are programs that can be used to try millions of passwords until they find the right one. And since I'm pretty sure many of you don't have secure passwords, it's a very good thing to have. tongue.gif But I'll up it to 5 attempts, if no one objects.

it been a while since afiseries.com had an update.. but i doubt either of you have the time for much now days.

As far as I remember it's been about 2 years since the site [excluding discography] has been updated.
Alli, I'm hoping the links page has been changed [for the New Site], because almost all of them are dead. the only ones that still exist are Psychotica and AFRENCHINSIDE.NET websites. Everything else seems to be shut down.

The forum has been finished if I understand correctly, it's just the main site changing.
So what kind of website are we talking here? CSS, HTML, ColdFusion? I can code fairly decently if you ever need help.

Avoid flash at all costs. It sucks and that sucks.

My goal for this site is to make it as easy as possible for us to maintain so that the focus can be on the content. As such, we are using a (highly customized) out-of-the-box framework. Our site has always been completely DIY, which has been fun for me, but by the time I get done creating it I have 0 energy left to put into the actual content. And when it breaks, I get completely demotivated (as you can see from the lack of updates on the front page tongue.gif). This time, I want to allow the ideas to flow through me without my having to stop and think about all the low-level coding. I think we've picked the perfect framework for that. It will also give us hugely increased opportunities for user participation and content submission. I'm aiming for super dynamic, up-to-the-minute updated. Everything in its place without the places being too restrictive. Community-driven website!

The coding for the site is pretty much done. But I'll keep you in mind if we decide to build any modules from scratch after the initial launch. smile.gif

You're a pushy one, aren't you? tongue.gif It means I'm almost done constructing the site, after which point we can begin entering in 17 years of AFI information and giving it a real good test. After which point you will finally get to see it!

I'm considering maybe a splash screen in flash. So I'll ask for help on that if we decide to do it. Can you include a video and audio in a flash intro? I don't want a streaming video (flv/or anything) as an intro... that's kind lame. Can you put full video and audio in .swf as an intro?

It's a certain someone welcoming everyone to the site.

flv IS the flash video format, dude. Even if it's possible to have it as swf, I highly doubt it'd give you any improvement in quality. And I'd really rather not make that the entry to our site. I hate splash pages, no matter who is on them.
