Well it took a while, but we finally got this old horse back on its legs.

The Situation,

Jose still has final say about the website, ie. sole access to the host's "control panel," however I've been asked to rehabilitate the website, which I've done for the love of Megatendom since there doesn't look to be any place for a Megaten-thusiast (see what I did there) to go solely focused on Megaten while not wholly owned and operated by publishers of Megaten paraphernalia.

Wow, that was one long sentence. Feel free to ask any questions, while I'll try to disclose more later. If your question isn't about administration power dynamics per say, then feel free to nail up another post on this board. There is a lot to hammer out here after so long in waiting...

I'll help in the hammering.

I've been hinting that in the past...but none got the hint. =_=  I'll help out in any way.

Btw,

I've been told the host is payed up for at least a year. I've also learned that many sites share the host, so it isn't likely this domain will go anywhere unless all the sites moved off the host or for some reason digitaldevildb.com was intentionally deleted. At any rate, I've backed up the entire site on my own home server, so I suppose in theory even under such extreme circumstances the site could be resurrected in one form or another.

We'd really like to open up the site completely I think, but unfortunately our host provider gives us very little elbow room to work in. So we'll just have to take things one step at a time and figure out how the site can move forward until some day maybe it can be moved to a more convenient home when it is convenient. One radical proposal we've thought of is keeping a developmental version, which everyone can work on securely and safely, on my home server where I have full control, then synchronize the development site with the public site once a week. If there was a lot of interest in developing the site that can definitely be done I think. We'll see if the community warrants such ends in time.

I'll help in the hammering.

For sure we can find something for you to do.

You know, there is a hidden staff board where your account is discussed with more than a hint of paranoia. I thought it was a little amusing myself, but I might need to see if we should keep that forum or not before making you a moderator or anything. That is just because I'm not sure if it would be an invasion of privacy to let you see it, and I dunno if there is any value to that board or not. I'll ask Emilio if he shows up. Seems only him and Tony were the major users.

If you wanna help add content to the main site, let me know. I haven't gotten around to really digging into it just yet.

My idea ultimately is to make everything free and open source, because no one is in a position to develop the site. I can manage administration if I must, but I've no intention of actually building the site itself, and that won't likely change  :-[

Actually, rather than waiting a long time to get back to working on the site...why not just back the entire site up and start from scratch?

I won't mind working on it...

That isn't how things work. Don't worry about it, there aren't any plans to "wait a long time," we're just taking things one thing at a time.

Developing a website is a lot trickier than it might look. Unfortunately there is no way to securely let outsiders hack away at the site given the limitations provided by our host provider. There are plenty of other ways of dynamically adding content however, and we're working on it naturally. We'll be happy to give you and others access to these features as soon as we have it ourselves more or less.

Feel free to help us brainstorm about new features you'd like to see while you're waiting.

Bottom line, don't worry... I run a pretty tight ship.

Sure will,

Btw... I just realized as admin I can modify anyone's posts! That's really scary. I tried to remove that privilege from the admin group but you can't for some reason. If I can't do it directly with the config files I might just have to make another account for administration, cause it's too easy for me to accidentally modify someone's post and not notice or be able to get it back :o

I modified your last post Emilio just to see if I'd get a warning. I didn't and don't worry, I didn't actually change anything!

I'm incorruptible, but I might slip and destroy a nation without appropriate safe guards in place ;)

Oh it's nothing to worry about. Or anything I can really explain for that matter... Let's just say the Secret Staff Forum is a pretty cute read ;)

From now on there won't be anymore highschool like antics around here. You'll just have to stick to highschool simulators...

Cool,

I hacked the internet so modify/remove icons don't show up on other peoples posts (this way I won't accidentally gum up your posts like I do my own on upon oft occasion)

Or better yet, this way I don't have to be paranoid all the time about having admin privs!
