So with several people making various offers to help with Claw & Quill’s programming, I’m realizing that there’s no way to avoid it—I have to play project manager. And as much as I may wish to find excuses why it isn’t necessary, I really, truly have to finish a (cue ominous organ chord) requirements document.

But it’s on the way. Really.

I just wanna help you pick colours for it. *nods sagely*

Also, I'll totally beta-test the snot out of it if you want, once you have something together to test.

Right now the colors are subdued, possibly excessively so. (Although "excessively subdued" has a somewhat oxymoronic air about it.)

Testing will definitely happen, and maybe some survey-type things, once I can formulate a statistically rigorous way to ask, "what do other archive sites not do that you'd find helpful, and what do other archive sites do that you wish they wouldn't?"

Well with the fallout of certain other sites going through recent conversions, there is a definite vacuum to be filled. I look forward to being able to use a writing site again. =D

These documents came to my attention yesterday:

http://www.alexandriaii.org/files/alexandriaii.ppt
http://www.alexandriaii.org/files/alexandriaii.doc

You may have already seen them, I guess, and I found it interesting how closely they parallel some of your ideas for C&Q as I understand them, and some of my ideas of how "things should be." Nothing on the Alexandria II site is dated as far as I can tell, so I have no idea how long these have been sitting beyond the fact that they estimate the number of fiction items on FurRag at under 500 when in fact it is considerably higher. Given the usual rate of growth at FurRag has only been a couple of stories a week for the past year, I'm guessing that the Alexandria II documents must be at least a two years old.

I've talked with the person behind those documents earlier this week, actually. You're right, they're pretty close to C&Q's concept in many ways. I have some other ideas they don't cover (and perhaps vice-versa) but he and I are at least on adjacent pages, I think. :)

I hope you can find a way to cooperate rather than compete. We really do need a site along those lines, but I doubt we can support two at once. ;p

I'm hopeful we'll be cooperating in some way.
