Starting to think efiction no longer presents advantage for the general site above the skins idea, which can be done anyway using php.
how would everyone feel is the general site accepted submissions via email or an upload form that email stuff to us?
Considering its only now going to be text, graphics and links to vids - to both make it simpler and avoid any legal issues.
There's also problem of finances. Looks like hosting and domain will cost about £50-80 a year and whilst I'm good for forking out for it upfront, I did wonder how everyone would feel about the donations and the affiliates money being my responsibility. It's not like we can have a charity donation button and therefore it has to go to a paypal acocunt and in case of the affiliates money - to a bank account (I'm quite sure we can't get a mcweir bank account!). I must also look inot the affiliates scheme to see if the site would qualify for it.
On the matter of the websites, a clever suggestion was made that we could have Mcweir.com as a frontpage with links to both sites - to make it obvious that there were tow, a general and fic archive.
Also someone asked if it might be better for the actual names of the sites to not be mcweir, but something else - Mckay/Weir central, and mckay/weir fanfic archive. I think as was suggested once Drs. Weir and McKay fanficiton archive sounds good but not sure aobut the other site name. Any thoughts?
Last thing is caption contest!
Here are links to 10 banners made by Patti.
All you have to do is come up with captions for them (just the words, no actual editing needed) and email them to my address alienforce_@_gmail.com (remove underscores of course) with subject line of "Caption contest #1".
You have until the 12pm GMT Friday the 11th to submitt entries - after that I'll make a big note of who suggested what and we can have some kind of vote on it somehow. Might see if I can get a friend to
write a php voting system for that. Anyway, here are the links. Enjoy and get those thinking hats on.
