New Website for KAC

Postby mithun » Tue Dec 04, 2012 8:54 pm

Hi guys,

We are creating a new website for KAC to effectively host and organize valuable KAC assets and articles.. Since we are in initial phase of creating this, I would like to take a moment to hear from you all about what sort of things you want to see in this website.. All ideas are welcome! Good ideas will be implemented after discussing within the team, bad ideas will be... oh well.. never mind :P

Some of the contents we already made up our mind about to host are

Articles Written by KAC members (Authentic ones.. no copy paste.. if copy paste then with reference).
Interviews of renowned people in the hobby
Tank of the Month (Not All TOTM will be placed in the site, its based on KAC team's discretion, more focus on tank setup than photography)
Fish of the month (purely good fish photos, but along with a nicely written article on the fish)
Upcoming Events in KAC
Announcements
Equipment review and guidelines (under consideration)
Events photo gallery!
etc

If anything else you want to suggest then please come forth and demand! :D

Searching should be better. As of now in this application, if we search something, it searches each and every word separately. It should search the whole phrase first and if not found then excluding the last word------even if not found then excluding last two words........like that........
If there are many results then first twenty should be shown at least. Now it gives message that there are too many results.

excelent ideas...good articles seems to get lost among many other posts. but i have few questions.

1. will the new site be a read only one? means no need for registration and no question answer session there?
2. if someone wants to contribute some article does he/she need to write up here first and the jury members will decide the merit of the article and graduate that one to the other site?

sorry in advance for Noob questions. :)
Thanks -- Sayanta

+1 to what Mithun said. We are trying to expand this existing site and trying to improve the knowledge repository system. Everything will be embeded within the current portal. Search or any kind of similar feature is built in part of the forum software. From our side, we will not be able to make any changes.

Tirtha

1. You have to login to access the material. This thing myself and Mithun will decide accordingly.

2. Write the article and post it in the forum. If it is worth storing, we will move it to the static page.
