View Full Version : WTB Site Staff - SSE Recruiting

08-02-2006, 03:49 PM
Seeing as we're moving to our brand new server, we have
a lot more capacity available and I want to take advantage
of that. To that end, I'm looking to recruit a couple more
volunteers to help out with the site. If you can spare a little
time a week to work on it, please see if any of the jobs below
would suit you. Regarding the skills list, most but not all are required.

PHP Developer
A person capable of modifying the existing SSE code
base to add new features and fix bugs.

Skills Desirable:

- 1 yr+ of PHP development experience.
- Linux (specifically, Redhat)
- Shell Scripting
- Previous experience with Content Management Systems.
- Project development methodology.

Content Manager
Manage the content of the website, including things such as
articles, FAQs, image gallery, and movie databases. Provide new
content, and keep existing content updated.

Skills Desirable:

- Previous experience creating content for a community website.
- Creativity!
- Excellent English language skills.

Graphics Designer
Create the graphics for the site, introducing new graphics for special
occasions and new content.

Skills desirable:

- Excellent image editing skills using a commercial level application.
- Graphical creation skills.
- Creativity.
- Excellent portfolio of previous work.

In many cases these roles overlap so don't feel you have to limit yourself
to one. Please send me a PM or email if you feel you'll be able to contribute
to the site.

Well I am a PHP developmer. Not that advanced. But I do am the best of my class in PHP :)


- Shell Scripting <- What?
- Linux (specifically, Redhat) <- I am not a linux fan ;)
- Project development methodology. <- If you mean something like working in a project or team, then I am fine ;)

Please join me in welcoming two new members to the site staff team.

Chonar joins us as a graphics developer, taking responsibility for site prettiness :)

Proterra joins us as a content manager, who will help build the community through new articles and material for the site.

The positions above are still open, including for Graphics and Content Manager, don't need just one for each :)

Llort - please send me some example code you've written.

i am good at graphic design and have worked on new/content side of things before at www.nova-inside.com i dont have a portfolion anymore but i can produce some work if you need see.

I don't mind helping out with the php side of things. It may not be pretty but www.nerdgeneration.com was written from scratch and *all* content is pulled from MySQL, and formatted with PHP and CSS (I haven't added to it in ages :p )

I've not written a single website that's not heavily php dependant.

Edit: I just noticed how old this topic is, but you still haven't added a php guy, so...

< body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" >

Old-skoool coding. :P

.bordered {
border: thin solid #666699;

.white {
color: #FFFFFF;

body {
background-color: #F0F0E2;
font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
scrollbar-track-color: #9999CC;
scrollbar-highlight-color: #9999CC;
scrollbar-3dlight-color: #9999CC;
scrollbar-shadow-color: #9999CC;
scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #666699;
scrollbar-face-color: #666699;
scrollbar-base-color: #666699;
scrollbar-arrow-color: #000000;

a, a:link {
text-decoration: none;
color: #666699;

a:hover {
text-decoration: underline;

Is the only CSS associated with that site o.O
Could easily assign simple classes for the table tags in your CSS doc and clear up a tonne of that code : b. Seriously, the code for a single row you've got there is currently a mess. All of the code for the fonts, colours and text formatting could be put into the CSS and brought into your html with a class call.

Before any other people post, make sure your work is clean before you post about it, which is why I don't post any of my own sites in public (except the sotf one, for obvious reasons) >.>

Edit: A good idea is to add the following tags to your page

&lt;!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"

&lt;meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"&gt;

Then follow the following link and do everything it says to do, its a lot of work but it'll help a lot when it comes to presenting the site and also making it more cross-browser friendly

I can pitch in with Graphics if you ever need it
You've seen most of my work related to WoW and what I can do

I can post links if you need to see more :)

I didn't put in the !doctype because it's not standards compliant.

The font tags are to help the site be viewable in any browser. I've tested it in almost any browser you can think of, but I agree, it should be changed.

The CSS is embedded because (a) I'm lazy and (b) I put all the header, footer and general formatting info in one file, central.php and forgot about it. I usually do more CSS, but was busy elsewhere. The over-complicatedness of the code is down to lazy php/mysql coding. Jeez guyz, I didn't expect it reverse engineered :p It works doesn't it? Find a browser it's not fairly viewable in, and I'll eat my hat.

I used it an as example, not for the exemplary use of html, but the technical attributes, php and mysql. I didn't offer to help with graphic design or content, did I?

Incidentally, all my websites "in progress" are fully xhtml1.1 compliant, and php/mysql based, but I'm not willing to advertise them yet.

Oh, and Alv honey, I was impressed by your SotF website from a technical perspective.

*grabs one of the newest PDA's with internet and a very simple clean browser*

I can tell you it won't work. Why? Since they removed the HTML4.xx stuff from those browsers, only to accept X(HT)ML.

Therefor font tags won't work for instance, and they NEED a doctype.

03-07-2006, 08:53 AM
I don't own any hats, can I borrow one please?

Point taken, I'll upgrade the HTML. It's not like I have anything better to do with only 1 working PC.

In my defense, look at when the last news item was posted lol...

Which cms was used to build this site?

12-03-2007, 08:28 PM
Seeing as this thread was recently necroed I'd like to use this opportunity, to apply for Content Manager. (If you still need people). I certainly have the time for it.
