PostSubject: Your own Tabletop Website   Tue 8 Dec 2009 - 7:25

Hey guys, you may have seen my other post where I was talking about creating a new tabletop related website. I really need to gauge interest before I go ahead and purchase hosting and everything for it. Here are the features I'm working on:
*FREE
*About Me page with some details about yourself
*Creating your own photo galleries and uploading photos (including auto-thumbnail creation and display page)
*Uploading custom rules/scenarios/etc
*Some blog functionality for you to post up whatever you want
*Main directory listing with all galleries for a specific game/army from all
users (and the ability to set your stuff private so it doesn't show up
here)
*Main directory listing with all rules/scenario files by game (and the ability for yours to be private as well)
*Directory listing of all user pages
*Ability to choose from multiple themes
*The ability to store and display your rosters from the Roster Builder: http://www.tabletopgeeks.com/mordheim-roster-builder/

Please vote, and if possible leave any comments here!

Svenn:

Not only I LOVE the idea, but you can count on me to get stuff together and feature Death Squads. cheers I would not mind (me, personally) chipping some money too! I had talked to DaBank and Dozer long time ago about making an informative site; kindda like a 'permanent precense' to introduce the game and showcase some stuff. From there we could also direct visitors to join our forums, so they can get the rules, comment, ask, suggest and share their Death Squads experience.


VERY COOL! Cool

Awesome! Thank you for responding, the silence from everyone between this and the other post was driving me nuts. Couldn't tell if it was just that people had nothing to say or that no one was interested.

Also, If you'd like I'll let you in on the preview when I get Paluke in as well, so you can give suggestions and help get it worked out before going live. Smile

Oh, and don't forget to vote on the poll above so I can get a better idea of interest.

Looks like the response is pretty good so far. :-D I'll continue with it. I'm waiting on a friend to put together the template so I can fill everything in. She's supposed to have something for me this week. Once that's up I'll let a couple people in to test it out.

This is coming along nicely. I've sent a very early version of the site to Paluke to test out. It's got a ways to go, but I'm hoping to open it up in the next month or so when Tabletop Geeks switches hosting.

If I had the capability of posting photos, your site idea would be of interest. Of course, if I had that capability, I'd probably post the photos where the folks I like hang out...in other words: HERE on TBMF.

Personally, I find that storing and tracking photos on forums is a huge pain. It's easier to have my own external repository that I can link to, whether it be individual photos that can be put directly into a post or a link to an entire gallery (or both!).

i post on here, and the flameon one for example.

Haha. It's going to be like photobucket.... with more features geared towards Tabletop hobbyists. Smile You'll get a mini-profile, and the ability to host files in addition to photos in case you have house rules, custom warband rules, etc that you want to share. ALSO, every photo you upload (that is not marked private) will be automatically available in the directory. So, as someone posting photos you get to show it off to the whole community who has an easy way to find it. As someone looking for photos you can quickly browse through all the ones posted by users, including sorting by game/army/manufacturer and searching. \o/

Oh, and it will allow you to save your Mordheim Roster warbands and display them on your page, as well as update them later.

COOL! Now all I need is to convince my Demonically Possessed Camera of Continual Contrariness from HELL that it doesn't actually HATE me AND that it can take photos; THEN get a computer that can do uploads...piece of cake. ONCE I get those little glitches ironed out, it would be SUPER no only to post photos, but do it through a friend...that's you, if you didn't catch my drift. SO...I vote definitely.

The first step in getting this up is completed! Tabletop Geeks has changed hosting and I've upgraded the back end with support for multiple users. I've got some work to do on it, and I'm waiting on a friend to create a custom theme. It's well on it's way though!

If anyone wants to beta test it when it's ready for that, just send me a PM or post here and I'll try and get you in first to try it out.

i had a good go at testing it today.

really good work.

now for creating a warband its great. may need to be on a clear'er back ground?

when you get it so you can have more warbands! (as i play unusal ones) its will may just come main stream!
- you may wish to have a form system, so that you can get us to add ones...! (with you checking)
- this may also be the way that you get it to become campaign ready?

anyhows great stuff, cant wait till you finish it!

Um, were you testing the Roster builder, frog? That's been ready for a while and is released for people to start using now. The file/photo hosting stuff and the saving of warbands hasn't opened yet though. Smile

Thanks for the suggestions though. It IS still a work in progress so expect to see lots of upgrades coming to it!

Tabletop Geeks user sites have gone in to beta testing! If you are interested in getting in on this early, let me know. I've hand picked a few people to test it out already, but I'll probably be adding a few more shortly. Smile
