Website??

Well howabout it? Forums are designed for question asking/answering which makes for less intuitive (be careful how you interperate that) access to knowledge. A stable - permanent knowledge base could be quite useful to new and even experienced learners. A place to download packs, view tuturials - primers - tips - apes - anything avs.
I can source webspace and help with the coding (time permitting).

New users will go to a website before going to a forum which would keep this area a little less uncluttered with repeat questions.

Theres a strong community here and theres alot of people out there who want to be a part of it all. Im not going to bother without active participation from you all - in fact I might not even have time to do it. Who's up?

I have been pondering about the same thing... So far i would be willing, but im not technically able to pull it off.

I only know basic html & a very little css...

Tho if the website is not suppose to be dynamic i could try to make it, but it would require manual uptading in the future (meaning that i do pages with a text editor-like programm without any automagic functions)

maybe some kind of a Wiki? the other possibility would be a CMS, which of course would require more administration. anyway, i can run some kind of wiki on the VISBOT server.

also check:
PhpWiki
Wiki
Wikipedia
etc.

I have also been thinking about it for a while.. i think ack.net was on its way to becoming avs central.. but we need a more 'stable' webmaster.

I'll ask around, i have some html-geek friends that are slghtly into avs, they might be interested.

good idea, then we could stickie the link and route the newbies to a knowledge base.

I have enough experience (mostly Dreamweaer) with my own HP to get it on, shouldnt be a prob if it is only html - based. If you want to do that using something like a read-only php forum, it would be quite difficult, but better to handle for those who want to add stuff without upload everything.

Another idea would be a newsgroup with some daily tips

Me and my mate have been building a website for about 6 months now. It's a music site and all we have to do ebeforewe release is get together advertising and bulk up content for a bit. It has a whole assload of music related things on it and if i can convince him i could add an avs section for the site. Don't worry about the quality of the actual site it completely rules, so to speak and it would be a good boost if it were part of a site that relates to a few different things, more people would learn avs and the like. I'll see if i can persuade him but i'm not promising anything.

You're saying I'm an unstable person? :P

I could put up a Wiki on acko.net if you want it. That way I don't need to intervene.

The CMS that ran on acko (Drupal) has a collaborative book feature that allows people to compose a book, modify existing pages, approve new stuff, etc. Basically a more structured version of a Wiki.

Yes but my way people who go to a site for other things may end up learning about avs.

OK sounds goooood. I guess all we need is content - who's up?

There will need to be tutorials on:
- The Basic GUI & Getting Started
- Simple Dynamic Movement
- Advanced Dynamic Movement
- Simple Superscopes
- 3d Superscopes
- Movement
- Writting apes
- Anything else??

The best way to tackle these would be to take the reader step by step through one or two projects. A simple project to explain the basic concepts. Then another to explain a little more in depth.
It won't be a recipe book - so you'll need to explain how/why/what/where in an easy to understand manner. Mathematic explanations could be tricky. I can help out with your writting skills - we don't want twenty page essays.


And most importantly - we need a good domain name. Any suggestions?

Yeah, but this site would be a place to bring it all together. Right now, everything is randomly scattered through these forums - we really need a place to combine everything, which is what the tips and tricks threads have been trying to do, but the problem with them is the complete lack of organization.

I'd like to see some in-depth articles about style and aesthetics and all of that. I'm sure there will be plenty of technical articles, but I think there should be a section devoted to explaining, or at least showcasing, the various styles of AVS that exist. I'd be happy to contribute, but my time is somewhat limited and I know nothing beyond basic HTML.

I'd like to host on acko.net however I think a dedicated avs site is required? The wiki solution is looking quite good for pack uploads/tips and tricks... I dont think its appropriate for the general content. That content will need to be moderated and controlled to ensure the site retains good structure (and doesn't get messy).

However tips and tricks definately need to be recorded and setup for intuitive access and that may/may not need to be moderated.

UnConeD is there much coding required for including a wiki? I haven't had a chance to read the whitepaper.

im not saying that you are unstable in the axe murdering, pschychotic sence of the word, just that you have greater things to worry about such as study and what not, and cant be expected to host a reasonably active site all by your self.

I think its a brilliant idea if you wanted to have it at ack.net, that way you could also put in as much as you wanted and no more. BTW, i remember coming across some of youre posts on a html coders board a while ago (when i went through my web developer stage), i got the feeling that you know your stuff.

Also, i think we may have grossly underestimated the vastness of the ineta-ma-web Afterall, its not just us in this game. i searched just then and found two (very small) avs dedicated sites.

http://mirror01.users.i.com.ua/~sadar/avs/

cant seem to find the other one anymore

edit:
hey.. if we get a mb up and running, we can all relocate. I really hate winamp, and hate being affiliated with it. ... maybe i shouldnt have said that.. (big brother is always watching you)

Got a bit offtopic now.

Ok, facts:

-there are enough possibillities to get free webspace
-there are enough people, willing to contribute

conclusion: we can put up a simple avs site (simple only for the start, goes bigger and more complex as developing)

If i get some time i'll work out a frameset and a design in the meantime we gotta get a stickie "AVS Website Content" thread in here

I know, somewhen i'll be struck up in my multiple projects, but if you guys really want, i'll put up the site and share the ftp account with those who worked on it too for updates.

but are there's any free hosters that allow you changing directory/file permissions (wiki requires this and many CMS too). if you're going for a CMS you need most likely a db (mysql for instance) and a script language (most commonly php).

since i havnt checked any free hosters since geocities back in 1997, i'm not really up-to-date regarding free hosters. usually they suck (> bad speed, pop-ups).

you can find free webspace providers and use a cool URL redirect like avs.has.it Or we can all donate 4$ and we could buy a host and space for 1 year.

Tug, thats what i already said. Devart and the Seve Wittens Pack can be unstickied as they are not of general purpose (IMO).

Killahbite, i dont want to put up a wiki or anything like that. I'd rather like to start with a little house than the empire state building. A good website with a collection of tips and tricks in normal html will do it, later on we still can change this and expand the site.

Considering free webspace, i got a host for mine with 25 megs, no ads or pops. This should be fairly enough for starting the project.

Thats right mx - the only content that needs to be uploaded is new avs packs (if they really need to be included at all). Theres no need for discussion groups and forums etc - although maybe later on perhaps.

I just need content please - who's doing who what where when... please!

I'll open a new Topic for the content, so everyone can write a artikle about whatever he'd like to publish about avs including files and stuff.

If all is done i'll create a website where all that stuff is collected.

Aw, too late to edit. Anyway, i found this free host:
http://www.freewebspace.net/php/view.php?id=1335

Looks good, doesnt it? And besides, this would offer a possibility to create a avsers forum apart from wadotcom.

hmm...maybe this is NOT the best spot.
read this:
http://www.broadiecarpark.com/module...hp?cat_id=1#q1

We might want to try this:
http://www.neopages.net/info.shtml It was rated top overall and in features, although it is apparently hard to join. (See the link)

http://www.winampavs.net/ is open
www.avsforums.net is open
avs.com and avs.net are taken
any other suggestions?

To get this, though, we have to 'apply' with an example of our site or something.
