    MSPFA Mirroring Site

    So I made a website.
    It is an adventure mirroring site, designed to allow authors and readers of the MSPFA forums to easily create a "canon" layout for their adventures, making it easier to read, to show to friends or to just brag about.

    Here it is: http://www.mspfanventures.com/

    You can sign up at any time, and can become an editor by simple demand: just contact one of the admins via a private message, Nixshadow or Violet CLM.
    We'll get back to you as soon as we can! Please do not post permission requests in this thread, and don't forget to include your username!
    Please note: Violet CLM will require you to have started your adventure already before making you an editor, and will request to see proof of this fact in your PM


    The website is quite flexible. We are open to any suggestion or demand, and I encourage you to post any idea you have in this thread. If I have some free time, I'll try to incorporate them to the site. Please also report bugs if you find one!

    Enjoy!

    Useless first version of this post.

    Hide the admin pages. DO it now. Just edit your post and delete them.

    You should read these two awesome webcomics! If you like them, join the forums and tell them that HaloKirby9 sent you.

    Re: So I made a website.

    This is great
    I love how the management and adding new pages...page looks
    It should be no problem using the theme, you might wanna make sure with the creators of those fanventures if it's okay though.

    -edit-
    Yeah, Hide the pages.
    Make it so only people trustworthy can use it,
    Aka. People who pm you and you give them the info and such.

    Re: So I made a website.

    This is absolutely increda-amazing.

    And yeah, I'm not sure the admin-pages should be a free-for-all. I'd like to think that everyone on this forum is mature enough not to ruin this for everyone.... but yeah.

    And you may want to PM Andrew directly about using his code.

    Well, I made a save of what I have done and I can put it back if people mess with it.

    So you think everyone shouldn't have access to them ?
    Then who should ?

    Edit : Oh well, you know what, let's have a poll.

    Re: So I made a website.

    A good idea, but two things:

    1. I have a feeling this should be in the Meta subforum.

    2. You should really restrict the admin stuff. I mean, I'm sure no one's going to be an ass and delete someone else's mirror, but there's no reason to take chances. People can PM you and ask for admin rights to create their own mirror.

    Re: So I made a website.

    At least if it's only people who ask for access to the admin pages that receive access, you have a sort-of list of who could be responsible if something goes horribly awry.

    I think that'd keep people a bit more in line.

    For "People who ask for it"
    Should be more like, "Trustworthy people who ask for it"

    Re: So I made a website.

    I'm assuming you're using some sort of SQL backend, why not add a users system?

    Additionally, you can get some nice hosting for on the cheap. I pay $5/month for 500GB transfer and 20GB storage, and then domain names are $6/year if you use a .us.

    Re: So I made a website.

    Wow, this is way better than my crappy mirror. Thanks

    I would say restrict editing privileges to the authors and/or well-intentioned fans of the adventure who specifically request it. This forum is not mature enough to handle unrestricted editing, as evidenced by past wiki vandalism.

    When can I make one for Bee?

    EDIT: Suggestion- multiple author fields.

    So, okay. I'll hide the admin pages.

    For now I'll just give the URL to people who ask me.

    If things go wrong, I'll add a user system.

    Superfrequency: Whenever you want ! I'll PM you the new location of the admin pages in a few minutes.

    Re: So I made a website.

    This seems like a great way to mirror everyone's adventures, though I would caution that maybe not everyone would be OK with their work being saved and uploaded elsewhere. I know it may sound weird, but I've seen my share of cantankerous artists in my day.

    All in all, though, good show! I think, with proper approval, this could be something stickied and kept in the MSPFA forum for easy browsing of in-process and finished adventures.

    EDIT: I wouldn't mind helping you with hosting, though how much you trust Dreamhost and its shared server space, I am not sure. I think a nice domain like MSPFA or Mspaintfanadventures.com (or whatever) would be great if it got really big. I don't see the community going anywhere anytime soon.

    Aryogaton is mirroring PXL and EXE, and AAAAAAAAAA42 works on Corgi Adventures. Awesome !

    I'm gonna add a new field in the Adventures Info, for the 'mirrorer' ! They've got to get some credit too.

    Re: So I made a website.

    Hey guys, I think you should be asking adventure authors before you mirror their stuff. They may not want you to.

    Also, lolzorine, you should PM Andrew and at least let him know this exists. He may be displeased you did this and never brought it to his attention.

    Hey! I asked!
    I just havn't gotten a reply yet.

    btw lolzorine, you should probably make a way to delete adventures.

    Added Rainbow Sunshine.

    Guys, should I add the Midinght Crew thing from the Extras page? IT's sort of an MSPAFA and it'd be convenient...
