LOL

Well, I am actually rebuilding the site AGAIN at this very moment.
It should be a lot cooler, and it will have more than just the DoD stuff, so I'm hoping for some cross-traffic.

Don't worry, we haven't given up yet.

Very good to hear

After my little hiatus, I've been trying to get back into dod.

If there's anything I can do to help, just let me know.

Well to help the site, we need content. Something to hold a vistor's attention long enough for them to realise we have the forums that they can post on and a server they can play on to boot.

Articles would be cool, but we have to be active as a community. We pretty much all sit around a wait for somebody to do something. Each of us has to start doing something.

Free Porn, Puff? If you can find the models, I can get the camera... Wait a minute! I will not take pictures of you! I'm sick, but not that sick! Shocked

I know you guys have said you're not the kings of coding or html or whatever, but you can still contribute. Just type up things you think should be included on the page.

Make a list of stuff we should include. For instance, we should have a "meet the admins" section, we should have a map rotation, we should probably have an explanation of what makes a "realism server", etc.

Things you could do for that:
The maplist can come straight from the file on the server. Zot can get that most easily. What about the explanation of the "Realism server"? Someone will have the write up a little essay/article about it eventually, so why not you?

How about that list of custom maps you want to try? Do reviews of them to convince people we should play them. You don't have to do the HTML, just write up a nice article and take a few screen caps.

There, now you all have homework. Have it on my desk Monday morning. Wink

I think promoting the site itself should be pretty high on the list. How can they see the content if they don't know we're here?

Posting on various forums should do the trick. A relatively easy task considering my bodacious social skills.

I'll get on this tomorrow. I'm sure Zot , the self proclaimed king of spam, can chip in. Wink

And for the record, I am the king of html. Wink

Promoting a crummy (or empty) site is a bad idea. Every person that shows up and is dissatisfied will never come back, and has the potential to tell other people it sucks.

If you want to do some work to help, I gave a few ideas as a guideline. Make content, don't just spam other boards.

Content before marketing. Take it from someone that builds websites for a living (at least the engineering aspect though I deal with content and marketing extensively).

What about stats? I know it's been mentioned before, but they seem to keep people around.

As far as map rotation goes, I'd like to see several of the popular maps in a row. Unless you're really going for the ultra realistic thing, then the maps should be put in chronological order.

If there are going to be custom maps on the server, it's probably best to have the maps avaliable on the site (or at least links to the maps). I'll do a review on one of them (did you want the review in Word as an attachment? or something else?)

Hmmm, I'll post more ideas as they come to me.

Duff, go to http://207.127.210.8/zetazot/ on the right hand side is all the custom maps that are installed on the server. They are not in rotation. Write up a review on any of them.

I never loaded up stats because nobody seemed to care enough even to play on our server.
