When I joined the Airsoft Hawaii group on Facebook, I had high hopes: people were posting about different events on the island, who was going where, and the like. Then, the administrators started cracking down. This page is only for “our” events, they said.
So, I’ve decided that something needs to be done. The simple answer would be to create another Facebook group, but my opinion of Facebook has declined greatly in the last few months and I’d prefer to avoid the platform. I also own the domain AirsoftOahu.com, which I feel is the best name for this community anyway. So, I’m currently seeking the back-end software to power the project.
My goals for the next 10 days are:
- select a content management system (CMS) to power the site,
- define and implement a forum structure,
- define a content structure,
- and begin working on the site’s design
Currently, the site is running on my personal server, but will be moved off to a bigger, more powerful machine when its actually being used.
