Hello
So given that I'm now doing these websitey things professional-like I'm thinking that I need to do a full overhaul of TDDO (not the forum, at least not yet) with loadsa new features.
So really I was just looking for some ideas for content, theme, colour scheme etc etc
So far I'm thinking:

A little app for browsing the forum reviews in a proper menu driven system
A code archive where I can put any decent snippets I've made that may be of use to others.
A sexier 419 baiting page (need to do some more too)
The usual guestbook stuff
My CV - all good web designers seem to put their CVs on their websites

Any thoughts?

Ahem...
As we all know I have impeccable taste....
personally I'd go with...

Theme: rabbits/pirates
Colour scheme: pink, yellow and orange
Content: plans to take over the world......

I think this could be a good look for TDDO..... there's definately a distinct lack of rabbits.....

Noooooo!

Or - how about a user-driven palette thingy, where each user can pick the colours they want? Maybe that's more of a forums suggestion than a main site one, though.

Games arcade would be marvellous! In fact if any of you programmer people out there have written/want to write any games, animations etc etc that can be ported to a web environment then I'd love to host them for you.
Also looking into a collaboration with Jog to give her a place on the net for her extremely intelligent and eye-opening environmental discussion.
Yay!

Ooh, I've had another idea. And feel free to shout and scream if this is utterly not possible but...

How about a function that allows people to download an offline copy of bits of the forum? E.g. you could select "the whole of every thread that's been posted to in the last week", or even just on a thread by thread basis. So that people with laptops can download their daily goodness for perusal in a place where they don't have net access.

Oh, hang on though - they wouldn't be able to reply. Which would be really frustrating.

No, scratch that idea - it's rubbish.

I think you can use Google Gears as an API for this kind of feature.

hmm...

http://www.facebook.com/

but i reckon thats also a very good idea. we could create our own poking system, one which is unique to TDDO.

how about:

throw a badger at
emasculate
poke the teeth out of

No not like facebook.... facebook bad.

We could all be little stick people that come alive when online (perhaps indicated by a change in colour) and then, say if I logged in and you were online, I could do things to you.... like wave at/drop a bomb on/push a badger near/shake a stick at you... and the stick men would emulate this.... does that make any sense whatsoever?????????? (I'm having a random day)
