How would everyone feel about turning the home page of customwars.com into a wordpress deployment blog? I am not sure what is curently used for the front page but I'd be surprised it it were wordpress. If we had a wordpress deployment then a few members could have access to blog and keep fresh news up on the front page. We need this public facing area to show that we are an active and productive team, we're a world away from this right now as we're relfected as a dead community.

I haven't heard anything on this? I would be willing to contribute writing to a blog and keep the front page of customwars up to date with project information. I would also be willing to deploy and configure the wordpress install is no one else willing to help?

We tried a wordpress blog a long time ago and it failed horribly.

I just checked and its still on the (ridiculously untidy) filehost

http://www.customwars.com/filehost/wordpress/

When you say failed horribly, what happened?
Were their riots? If someone gives me access to this filehost I'll update the wordpress installation.

As I understand it Kosheh is the only one who ever knew the login details and he's forgotten.

All the updates done to the frontpage, I've personally done by hand-editing the HTML...but yeah. Kosh doesn't have the passwords anymore.

it would be cool if the frontpage was editable by a few people. The wordpress blog is a nice read and is more rewarding then the 'whole is practically dead' sentence that we have currently =)
