Had a quick look, and indie looks like they're profiting off the whole concept:
In terms of layout, they're not too far off what I'm hoping for in the final product. I obviously strive for more interactivity from anonymous users
as well as members, but that's just the structure of the website I am trying to create.
I think I'm going to have to start making lists of features to include though, as I'm thinking of more and more things with every moment. I like the
addition of facebook/twitter links, as well as photos of contributors, that indie provides, as well as the incentives that kickstarter offers.
Hopefully I can get a feature list included into SwarmIT soon so I can start using the website to document its own creation...
Anyway, had enough for one day, so more tomorrow. Project forums are now functioning as they should, private to members only. Public news article for
projects are now just that, public. Private news articles work as forum topics. Project forums are created when a project is created, I am just
working on getting them into the right spot. The same applies to adding new information, setting it to create it in the right spot with minimal user
interaction to get it there.
I didn't get around to any user profile creation today, but I think I'll put that on the back burner for another day anyway. Tomorrow I am planning to
further develop the add content links on project pages to display only to members, as well as the aforementioned "feature list" for projects, which
will have two views: one for members, displaying what has been completed and what hasn't, and one for the public, displaying what features are planned
for the life of the project.
If I end up with more time, I may wander back to the user profile, but I have some thoughts on how to make that more efficient, so I may need more
time that I have.
In any case, if anyone wanders over, try not to poke too many things. I'm not sure of the stability at the moment (it should be fine) or the
permissions regarding content creation (which may allow users to create things in places they shouldn't).
Edit to add:
If anyone has a chance, can you let me know how your browser handles the site? I've noticed some peculiarities with IE, Firefox seems to run fine
