I don't have the $$ to buy another domain and I'm trying to make my domain a kind of brand. I've already done short films with it, so it's known by some people.
I've also noticed that once I do a search for a domain name & it's not used or offered by anyone (so it's cheap), soon it becomes parked & costs more $$. That's why I use fuzzylogicinc vs fuzzylogic.
When I first searched for fuzzylogic, it was only $10/year & noone claimed it. A month later when I got the cash it was $1000 to buy & had become parked. Screw that, I added "inc" to the end!
The script you have would be near perfect! My host doesn't have mysql installed (it's a friend who gave me webspace on his server, all the space & bandwidth I want for free, and he has no desire to do anything fancy, so I don't bug him about anything fancy), I tried wordpress once. I don't want to host files but I'd like to be able to let people upload pic's (for pics of the day), submit news (similar to moddb), etc. Just not file hosting, there's places out there that do much better then I could and they have the bandwidth/space to dedicate for that, I'd rather be info.
This is a template I like the layout of (put on my server for a test): http://www.sterlingshield.net/home/stev ... index.html
If your script could be setup to update the latest 5 news stories automatically, update the latest news for each Quake (I'd have that directly below), that would be awesome. But, at this point, I'm not going to be to picky. I love RSS feeds too, I used a couple site RSS feeds for PQ/PD news and I'm sure people used PQ/PD (like Bloodrayne said).
One thing I'd like too is to let others sign in & update news. I hung around this site & tastyspleen a lot and got a decent amount of news from those two places. I *KNOW* there's Q3A/QL news out there but I didn't know about it, someone who wants to update another Quake that I'm not really "in the know" on would be nice. IE different name/passwords, etc.
