Hello, I am new tro FIFE so I might need some introducing to the forums/website.  Currently I applied to become a designer for the new look/website for FIFE at mvBarracuda's thread at the GameDev and I hope I will get accepted.  For right now I have no idea of what looks the website/development staff would like, but hopefully I will get feedback.

Hi mvBarracuda,

If you haven't gotten the message on your thread back on the Gamedev site then I will tell you that I have applied to become a graphics designer for your website.  Sorry if this is not the place for me since I am not a developer but I didn't know where else to put this to get your attention.  Hopefully you will accept me as a designer but I am not sure what style of graphics you would like even though I can do a maximum variety. 

Here is a small bit I am able to do in about 5 minutes with my program, hope you like it,  :)


So, either drop me an e-mail at, PM me on this forum or the GD forum, or reply to this post or the post on the GD site.

Thanks, sincerely Gamedevman101  8)

Hello Gamedevman101 :-)

I've moved your posting the to "introduce yourself" board. We're currently looking for web designers who could take care of the tasks that are described at the wiki:
# Either create a new design from scratch or pick one from and modify it for our needs. There are already some design-related notes at the wiki article linked above. Solid (X)HTML & CSS knowledge required.
# Create templates of the new design for the following software solutions that we plan to use for the new website:
## Mediawiki (wiki functionality)
## Drupal (planet functionality)
## SMF (forums)
## Wordpress or any blogging solution of your choice
# Optional: find a way to integrate a blogging solution into our forums (we're using the SMF software). We looked into a couple of bridges for Wordpress but we haven't really decided on a solution yet so we would appreciate any pointer from somebody who had done something similar in the past.

That said we'll need somebody who could create graphics for the new website later but only after we worked out a design for it. There is no immediate need for any graphics for FIFE, at least I don't have anything on my mind ATM (a new logo has been recently created). Therefore I would propose to wait until we found a web designer for the new website; at this point the need for new graphics might arise.

That's just my personal point of view; if somebody has an actual FIFE-related job for Gamedevman101 to work on, shoot :-)
