We have to get content before applying. What we MIGHT want to do is get another free account somewhere else, build up the site (but leave out the PHP that we might need- leave a placeholder), then submit our request.


Oh- we might have to buy a domain...otherwise we will get a subdomian ($name.neopages.com)

Phaze we haven't released yet , we're just bulking up content before we release. But we need time to get the avs content sorted anyway.
People are still not reading my comments, i've talked about it and i can get you free hosting for it. The site is called Rock World, music site blah blah, i can get a subdomain for it. www.avs.rockworld....... Hosting problem solved, i can add whatever content wants adding as well, so i host and maintain, that sound alright to anyone.

.xxx, heh, that should be for porn sites, along with .org(y)
Anyway we just have to do content before we release like i say, the site completely kicks ass so put the information in the site template. So no worries about site design. Trust me, no worries about site design once you see the site you'll know.

www.***.tk does have ads, but you are easily able to remove them. Just log in onto your MydotTK -> click MyDotTK Linker Promo -> select domain -> select "No thank, no banner for me"

and your done :P

Just my two cents...

Yeah but if the avs site is connected to another music site that will get a lot of people visiting because of the content. They will subsequently think "hmmm, what is this avs thing" then avs gets popular, then winamp releases better version blah blah blah blah.....

I find lack of sleep makes people naive but i also think that if people visit a music site that they may subsequently browse it and find out what avs is. It can't be bad now can it.

Of course, with it (popularity) comes (bitchy) newbies, so we need to prepare for the flood with the coming of the website...
Still, go with it... I just hope there are some gems out there...
It'll take a lot of work to get AVS quite popular, but from the looks of it, I think most of us are ready

I know about handling html files, file structure if a site, frames & layers and what goes with that.

I actually have no clue howw to handle cascading stylesheets or script related things, but i will go into that as the project developes.

As far as i know, it mixes up layer and frame based web design to get the advantages of both.

Custom Style Sheets (CSS) just reduces repeat code by tieing it to the css. Thats how I remember it anyway.

yah.. css is not neccesarly to do with frames or layers, but it can work with both. It is just a way of customising most features of html code.
most common usage in real life is just costomisng text, like making hyperlinks different, so that they arnt underlined, or so that they change font when mousovered. And those pages with costomed scroll bars are also css.

You specify your css stuff in one spot, and then refer to it later when you want to use it. its like making html 'presets' that you can refer to easily.

D-Sign???

Raz, any idea about the design of the Site? I'd like the style of www.philosomatika.com, nice green, main menu on top and a layered detail menu on the left side.

Just make sure you don't tie the CSS to form but rather function. Use a cascading structure that encompasses your entire page and goes down to the smallest distinction.

E.g.

body { ... }
#header { ... }
#header a { ... }
#sidebar { ... }
#sidebar.box { ... }

All too often you see people who claim they use CSS, and still end up putting class="..." in every <a> tag or similar. That's just stupid.

Well the sites on my friends computer but here's a screenshot of it, it hasn't got the header design on it though. The blue text in the top right is a java applet and the menus on the sides are automatically added using css. I've talked to darren and he agrees that we can use the basic design in it because it will be a subdomain of rockworld. It doesn't look much like this but it's much better with the header on it. I'll post another screenshot with the header when i get one but this is all i can find on mine for now. By the way the loading time with everything is only a few seconds on the home page. All images are gifs and the setup uses the minimum ammount of images possible.

considering nothing else has it, and we are a relativly small community compared to others at winamp.com, i think its unlikely.

I hope i'll be a full time webmaster. If it takes off anyway. Get paid to play 2 player goldeneye and occasionally make an update would rule.

What did i say about the site looking better with a header Well change it or not, i have a completed design if you guys want to use it.

Raz - it needs some nice design up the top just to 'theme' the site.
By the way Im sure I can get this website to fund itself. Im not sure I like the idea of putting it on rockwell. But at the end of the day it doesn't really matter. welldone.
I'd like to design some artwork for it if thats ok?

I'll get a screenshot off my friend in a couple of hours when he comes on msn with the header on it. Been really busy lately, 3 out of 16 exams done. Haven't the time to AVS and site design.
