You don't have to only look through the AllRPG constituency to find able bodies.
I am fully committed to doing all I have to with (or without) a small amount of help until other people can be found, at which point we will grow. Not before. This is going to be grassroots stuff to start. I know we can't pull an AllRPG from even 2 years ago, so I'm not trying to. If we try that we will fail like the last 4 or 5 attempts have. We don't need to worry about anything as far as traffic because the bottom line is that - aside from the forums - we will have none. There is no unveiling of a new site or talk of a "new" allrpg being a selling point- because anyone who stumbles onto the site won't care. We are starting from scratch. I'm going to try and make something a new visitor will enjoy reading. I know plenty of 1 man shows that have done just that. That is how we will begin. So, at this point, I think things are looking just peachy. Anything - and anyone - else is pure gravy.
I don't know why some of you keep trying to say bringing back the old AllRPG won't work. I'm not trying to bring back the old AllRPG. We might grow in a few years, or we might stay a niche little site with a modicum of visitors. It doesn't matter either way for me. I'll measure success [i]from absolute freaking zero[/i]. That's what we have right now. I'm not measuring against the AllRPG of the past or Kotaku or Destructoid or any of that. [u]Anything[/u], even something akin to a small blog about RPGs, is a step forward and is better than nothing. I do not expect this endeavor to even bring us back to a level even like 2005 AllRPG for a good while. We've lost too much traffic since then by not having anything there to think they'll just come back. We need to stop expecting that kind of a reception, because we won't get it.
Now, being as nominally versed in actual website creation as I am, I would like some help. I remember the total head count from '05 or '06 (when PM was heading the staff, I believe) being around 10 people. We don't need a lot to have a stable, daily updated main site. We aren't going to need that many to begin anyway. I need maybe 3 or 4 dedicated people, that's it. They don't even have to be from the forums. There are people out there who want to write and enjoy the subject matter, and that's all you need. I have a few willing to help along in varying capacities. I think we're right on track. You just need a writer or two and a decent looking site and you're set.
That...and a coder - which will come from the forums, outside the forums, or me studying up.
Hyde, I would love your help on that side of things if you are offering. Something akin to a speed course on what you think I would need and how I go about getting/using it and what I need to do as far as all the FTP stuff.
