    I dont see the harm in it, I'm on the fence. I strongly beleive that the main focus should be the forum.
    A few web pages could be useful for digests, compendiums of useful links, things like that. I would balk at hosting media because that would open you up to scalability problems (such as plagued PA whenever Bill released a new video).

    I think it would be nice if the site had a nice front comprising of some kind of a portal with important news and links, perhaps a blog / articles section, and a dedicated section of the forum for replies to those entries. That would likely require a CMS which is known to easily integrate the phpBB, which, in my experience, can be a major pain tho ... Also - would it be mainly aimed at the MoA community or towards more general public? Either way it would also likely require a dedicated team of people to keep it up-to-date I guess.
    Anyways, I voted yes (^__^ )

    Thank you Mudra-san, you're too kind : ) Anyways, submitted as suggested.

    The design proposal is a quickie, meant mainly for the concerned parties to have something more solid to discuss, such as what should be there and what shouldn't, what it should like or not etc. My experience with clients suggests it often helps : )

    Your views do resonate a lot with me Floyd .
    Taking things to another level ... transforming the world by actually putting our hands and heart into it ..and shaping our dreams so that they finally manifest into reality I feel has been the concern of several in PA.
    Some made it to a life closer to their heart and mother earth but there is still a lot to do to move from where we are now to where we really want to be as a community .
    It is dear to my heart to see more of these selfsustaining communities building up as time goes by .
    May the Mists be a spring board to a better and wiser way of life .

    Love Always

    I vote yes. I really like Floyd's idea of the medieval market place. I have several books to give away...just for the cost of shipping: $2.65. Swaptree is an example of this. We could have our own market. No money to change hands, just books and dvd's and cd's sent to each other in mutual agreement and on the honor system. I also like the ideas of sharing art, writing, and so forth. As long as the web designers want to put in their hours, why not? We all benefit. Welcome to our new world.

    Floyd wrote:When I set the Mists up, my initial idea was to have a sister site. ie a website to go with IT. This would have been like a mediaeval market place. A place to exchange, sell or give away goods, inventions art etc. A video section to display what members are doing by way of community/readiness..to show members talent at impossible yoga positions/breathing techniques etc.
    Also a section for members to submit original articles on topics relevant and close to their hearts
    It was to be a link between forum land to another level of interaction which would ideally lead to the formation of real human relationships in offline scenarios for the development of ideas exchanged and the formation of small groups or communities of like minds.
    This would be open to members without cost and non members without cost.
    Money generated through the site via internet marketing would be put into a feasability study to establish or fund various community ideas for members. If that failed it would be given away to charity.
    I didnt want it to be another Camelot so if you do get a website I suggest you leave the interviews etc to the others and concentrate on the things I mentioned above.
    This is a real oppurtunity to take things to another level for those who feel the need.
    Go for it.

    Floyd, could you be a bit more specific on what functionality you would like? Could you compile them in a short list? I might have building blocks for what you need and I'd definitely consider undertaking such project if you're interested :-) I couldn't dedicate 100% of my time to it of course, as, like most of us, I need to make ends meet, so it would proly take a bit to develop, but I really like your idea.

    Your link to the May 3rd post is exactly what the
    question referred to.

    This is in No Way intended to bug You about current results,

    Many of us are looking forward to the New Site,

    which was originally slated for the first week in May,

    and are wondering about the progress .......

    Yep - I absolutely understand. This is why I just wanted to give that Link and let You know that I am working on It.

    That said - Due to Real World Issues - A Moderator Leaving - A Thread about the GFL needing attention due to that - And other Issues - I've been a bit late on this. My apologies for that and I can say that by the end of this Month - We should be Migrated and at the New Digs or I should say the New Digs will be here LOL...

    FYI - I just took off 5 days to get alot of this done so that by the end of this Month - The 28th, 29th - I'll be off again - The Site will be up and ready - And All I'll have to do then If I get My T's crossed and I's dotted correctly - Is propogate the DNS over (This can take 24 Hours or so for this to take effect) - And Ensure that the MySQL has been Migrated over correctly so that We don't lose Members in the move nor any Posts or Threads.

    Please understand - If there is anything I want to get done right - This Migration is one of them as I go forward so I AM being extra cautious as I proceed. In this, I AM Your advocate have no doubt and I will inform You All this week in this Thread as to the Progress I make.

    My Apologies for not updating the Membership more and I will endeavour to do better in this regard. BTW - I threw My back out two days ago and that is why I was not on yesterday...
