What we need are contributions from you guys:

These can be articles written concerning current events. These can be satire or as cynical as you want them - just don't violate the TOS.

Comics - Paging Hasty Penguin!

Flash - Paging Ztolk!

Photos - Paging Purple/Amphy

Anyone can contribute!

Who would be willing to help out?

What can you contribute?

So I went on a spiel about this with Nickolati in the chat, and here's my best recollection of what I said:



So we've tried this whole INTL frontpage idea a few times before, and it never really worked out the way we wanted it to. There weren't alot of contributers, and perhaps the people who did contribute were actually pretty lame and didn't realize it at the time (sry guys :(). The idea of trying it again with the same, or at least similar premise is suicidal, I would venture to guess.

And then I started thinking, what sites out there are actually popular now among pretty much everybody? The Youtubes, Facebooks, Myspaces, Twitters, Blogs....It all has the same general appeal of an admittedly self-serving social outlet.

So I'm not sure how many of you guys have twitters and blogs, but I was sort of envisioning a frontpage that capitalizes on the appeal of the social networking thing and has a simple series of [i]arrangeable[/i] boxes linking to individual intl users that display live updates to our twitters, youtube favorites, facebook updates, etc along with other features like that. It would be a good outlet for people to show off their photography, comics, flash videos and all the things you said, but also provide people with one more place to go to when there at work and feel like saying "fuck you world" or "im drnunk as fcuk" in a blog-like setting, with the illusion of somebody out there listening. I'm sure snowy's square full of naked boobies and funny youtube videos would be quite popular.

I donno, I was just thinking of ways of getting everybody involved in the effort, however lame it may be.

So tart, is this page of yours a site that easily links/presents everyone's youtube/twitter/facebook/flickr updates, or is it just a totally different site where you can up anything you feel like?

What if there was a feature that when you were creating a new thread, you could click a checkbox that automatically put it on the frontpage.

That way you could write a nice 'article' about how the monkey spit in your face during your trip to the zoo, and it could still be a regular thread in the Bitching Battleground. You'd be expected to put it together a little nicer then you would your average thread, but the pressure isn't on too much. I know I never wrote any articles for the old frontpage, but I would be a lot more inclined to if it was more like a 'highlighted thread' then strictly an 'article' or 'frontpage posting.'

My Facebook page serves as a home to a collection of stupid and nonsensical short stories and sentences. Additionally, there are (soon to be) over 150 haikus that follow the 5-7-5 syllable rule as opposed to having any haiku-like content.

I've been drawing a bunch of cartoons and have developed a new cast of generally silly characters. I don't have a scanner set up at the moment, but I will by the first week of September and have about 20 odd old "Marmadukes" until then.

I've been in favour of this for a long time, despite its continual struggle. The photos always seemed like a good idea. Take us on a tour of your locale/a trip/your attic/lego creations/whatever.

If anyone is willing to code it, I will be fully able to facilitate your assistance. Sandy and I bounced around this idea when we were working on INTL5, but felt a little turned off from it given that all three previous incarnations died horrible deaths.

As for linking to INTL, it wouldn't be a bad idea, but any coding of that sort would require Sandy's more advanced hands.

I haven't read this thread yet because it's early, but I feel like it'd be more of a backpage than a frontpage. IE something for INTL members to share inside jokes.

Quoted from Chewbacca:

Yea this is sort of what I was implying with my post. Instead of trying to make a page that will appeal to newcomers....why don't we make a community space where everybody can share all their stuff with each other. Hopefully it will be something that will appeal to the people that are already here.

I could post some weekly recipes or something, I'm in culinary school now and would love to share my new finds as I'm always on the hunt for new things to make.

I'm just completely useless when it comes to coding and shit, but if someone makes me a little section I'd totally be down.

For all of you that have blogs.. is there any reason this couldn't be your primary blog?

Instead of your generic blogspot or blogpress, is it possible to link people to your blog here? Which would also link them to everybody else's blogs, and maybe finally to the INTL forums? Maybe even provide the opportunity for generic people to create their own blogs here.

blogspot.com/nickolati isn't near a cool a blog as one starting with interestingnonetheless.net/nickolati. i'm a serial-killer :)

Having a front page isn't a bad thing, and I honestly never knew why people felt ours HAD to come down, or why it HAD to have constantly updated articles or something. Going to interestingnonetheless.net brings you to a frontpage, forums.interestingnonetheles.net brings you to the forums. And especially if people did agree to treat INTL as a primary blog, it would provide its own updates. This is infinitely expanded if people linked it to their Facebook, MySpace, whatever else you guys have.

IF my sites RSS feed could be shamelessly ported over here I wouldn't mind kekeke u give soj??? I update it regularly.

Also so we're all wanting a sort of 'google homepage' design? The coding for that doesn't actually seem that difficult. Just a .css, a index.php and maybe an admin.php.

The idea of blogs, and the like, and linking facebooks, and twitters are ideas I could get on top of.

This has a chance of overbloating things, I think. We just have to try it and see.
