Not A Joke – Site Redesign Meeting

It sounds like a set up for a joke.

What do these have in common?

5 people in the living room (and another on IM),
5 laptops in the room and a server backing up in the next,
2 large dry-erase white boards with assorted colored pens,
2 cats (chasing each other around and doing “kitten boxing”),
and two extra large pizzas (for us, not the cats, really),
for 8+ hours…

That about sums up yesterday’s staff project meeting to work on site redesign. We have a draft with the three large stages of rebuild. Next we find a web developer capable of actually implementing it. We need some pretty sophisticated coding done in Drupal 7 for both sites (and a third in design now). This one is the old Drupal 6 platform and only does a tenth of what we need.

Thanks to Erika, TM, Lon, Siolnatine, and virtual-Rylan for their work Sunday.  (And the massive work they do every day.)

If you know any really fantastic Drupal 7 web developers, send them our way. We are taking bids on the project.

When it’s done, you will be amazed. Truly. Publishing hasn’t been done like this before!

    On further consideration of the amount of effort this will take, I vote that we skip the site redesign in favor of creating a handful of skins to give the current site customizable appearances. I’ll work on the “hippie orgy” skin with the rainbow flowers and naked longhaired people cavorting in fields.

    #2 No chains?

    I don’t want to give up my hot chains and hard bodies skin… but I want that too. Mmm, as usual, I want both. Or all. Everything, dammit!

    Maybe we just skip the virtual skins and go for the real thing. Time for an orgy instead of a staff meeting?

    Sigh, back on my head, oh, I mean, back to work now…

    If the next staff meeting develops into an orgy and I’m only there on IM again, it could get ugly.


    #4 We can wait.

    Then we’ll have to hold off on the actual orgy until you can be there, and work on getting text orgies more available.

    #5 Wait, there’s a difference

    Wait, there’s a difference between hippies and hot people with chains? I must hang out with the wrong kind of hippies…

    Just let me know when the next staff orgy is scheduled, and I’m SO there!


    #6 Orgies aside…

    I’ll try to clear my head from all this talk of staff orgies and respond to the idea of a redesign… ­čśÇ

    I truly cannot wait to see what’s in store. The ideas I’ve glimpsed so far from the way the contracts are worded have always excited me. Good luck, everyone!
