    Since moon no longer updates mp3car.com...

    I think mp3car.com is pretty much dead other then the web board. The example pages are one huge mess (broken links and images, and gooten too large to be usable in one huge page) and all of the other pages haven't been updated in a long time.

    I know PHP and HTML fairly well, but I suck at SQL. But I think if I could get a few people to help me out (it would be a community effort, I would help out but I'd need other people that have skills and know HTML, PHP, SQL, graphic design, site layout, etc...) we can throw together a new web site and a new message board.

    If I registered mp3cars.org would anyone be willing to help out with designing a new site? I think we could make it 10x as good as mp3car.com and with a team of volunteers to keep it constatly updated we wouldn't have the problems that mp3car.com has.

    Anyone willing to help out?

    I now ASP, PHP, SQL, HTML, and design graphics. I would be more than willing to help get things back in order, but I feel it should be on MP3Car.com, to keep it centralized. Eventually Moon will respond to our suggestions, or maybe the admins can bring it up to him.

    i offered my services a long time ago, but never received a reply. that 'moon' keeps a low profile....


    being a ASP/PHP/My-SQL/MS-SQL/HTML guru by trade, I would be able to help out.... but I feel a smaller dev team would be better - 'too many cooks spoil the broth' as they say.....

    also maybe going for a system like php-nuke might be a good idea? since building websites from scratch (as I always do) does take ALOT longer in time/effort.

    I like the idea of PHP nuke. We really need to do something though. Moon hasn't responded to emails, he's not on IRC anymore, and mp3car.com needs some serious updating. So if I register mp3cars.org and setup PHP nuke, whats the chance that atleast most of the people from the forums here would start using the forums on mp3cars.org?

    I would use phpbb for the web board (looks very similar to vb and has a lot of the same functionality.
