ACF Site Goals

Postby Jason Solan on Sun Dec 18, 2011 1:25 pm

I'm planning on spending at least an hour each weekend (that I'm home) doing upkeep on the ACF site this coming year.
Here's a list of things I'd like to accomplish with that time.

    Generate Tournament/Event List From Google Calendar - Almost complete (Will help JR from doing work in triplicate)
    Redesign Main Page - Almost complete
    Officially Open New Games Archive - Almost complete (Need to do some cleanup and add an export function)
    New Event Page - Just started (Enable maps, external links, images, videos, crosstables, games, etc)
    Upgrade Store Software - On hold (Waiting for a shipping module from the developers in order to handle all the things we do)
    Add Problem BBCODE to Forum - Planned (Enable javscript checkerboard for problems along with the modes for games/positions)
    Update/Add Crosstables/Results - Planned (With new event page, addition of crosstables would be beneficial)
    Re-Calculate Ratings - Postponed (With crosstables in place, re-calculating ratings would be relatively easy, but Joe/Eric/Vadim seem to have this under control)
    Player Profiles - Planned (Show basic information about players such as titles, state/district they live in, online presence, and link to any tournaments/pictures/games they have)
    Convert Problems to "Playable" - Planned (Rather than static images, re-publish problems using javascript checkerboard)
    Re-Design Old Pages - Planned (Replace old header/footer and old data tables on old pages like ACF Info, Classroom, etc.)

If anyone has any questions or suggestions, please let me know.

I traced the root cause of this bug to be the javascript checkerboard I used to display positions/PDN. No quick fix, but I'll look at it more this weekend.

Jason,
I know it wasn't one of your ACF Site Goals, but I would like to publicly thank you for setting up the current and future composing contest problems on the cover page and setting up the contest page for their solutions, balloting, and archiving. To me, it's a miracle! I hope it attracts quality problems to justify your effort.
