Looking for Suggestions/Opinions.

I have tried my hand at making a website. You can view it at
http://eventghost.rocks/

It is a rough draft and still needs some bits filled in but for the most part is is pretty complete.
The page is a responsive page using bootstrap, meaning that it will deal with mobile devices properly (hopefully).

constructive criticism is welcome. Ideas and Suggestions are a +

I tried to keep it as simple as I could while delivering a polished professional look and delivering the information in a pretty straight forward way.

I have set up any of the links to anything external. like the forum and the wiki to open a new tab in your browser while circumventing the built in popup blocker of the browser (hopefully). This will keep the EG page open in the event the user needs to access something else from it.
I don't think it's all that bad for my first web page

That looks great! It's a lot more end-user friendly than eventghost.net is. For eg.net you mostly need to know what you want already, whereas eg.rocks is a good introduction to people who don't (yet) know they need this in their life. (:

thank you i do appreciate it. jachin99 and I worked on the content together. I think we came up with the proper content. Still has a little tweaking needing to be done.

I do want to add another section maybe something that pulls from GitHub that shows what has been added/fixed in the next version of EG and who came up with the idea or found the bug.

ok so i started work on the About Us section. the first person to comment on my photo other then a good thing I am going to do the homer simpson choke hold on ya through the screen.. :shock: 8) . No but seriously.

I would like to add some cool things here about the people that work on this project. Photos you do not have to do but it is a nice thing to have up there.
Each Photo is going to link to a Bio page with some information about yourself. This is something you can key up. but I would recommend you have someone that you know do it for you. if you want to have someone in the forum do it up then by all means. I think this is a better way and you will obviously delete all the bad things said :wink:

Anyone that is actively helping others in the forum/creating plugins/contributing code to the core/writing things into the wiki should participate in this. Showing that we have good community support is very important.

Your photo looks great to me. And I'm not just saying that because I don't want to get choked! :lol: The link from your photo is broken, but I'm guessing you just haven't gotten that far yet.

I'd be honoured to be included, but I'll leave it to you and the rest of the community to decide. I've only been here for about a month so it may be a bit premature. (:

I'm looking forward to this section, and learning more about you folks taking care of the project!

Thanks. The photo is one of the better ones. tho it is a year old. so there is more beard and longer hair now. Been to busy to shave or to cut my hair. LOL

No I have not finished up the biography section on me. I am going to have my wife key something up for it. and I would like for the users here to also come up with something. I think it's easier to have others describe who a person is. and gives a better description as well.


@Boolean263
Being a member of the EG community is not determined by the length of time you have been here. It is about what you have done to help others and what you have done to make EG a better program. and you have done a huge amount already. You have spent a part of your life trying to make other peoples life better without any gain other then to make yourself feel good for doing it. and that is what open source is all about. I personally appreciate all that you have done and hope that you will continue to share your knowledge and make improvements like you have done so far. I have not yet added the analytic software to the wiki portion of the site yet. I will do that later today. this way I will be able to give you a number of just how many people use the wiki and how many people benefit from the information you have provided to them. You get a lot of feedback on your plugin in the forums. and you can also see how many times it has been downloaded. which is what helps to keep ya going. If there are any tools i can give ya to keep ya going I will do my best to provide them.

Once I get this site fully functional and everyone is OK with putting it into place we will start moving forward again with the core programming. EG 0.5 we did a lot of upgrading and bug fixes but didn't add a whole lot of new things to it. Next version we will be more focused on adding a couple of features that everyone has been wanting. Gotta get the software back into shape before we add anything big.
