JulNoNextYear


Yeah, I'm already thinking up ways to make this even better for next year (the web site part of JulNoWriMo, anyway). I'm sure Vixen will pipe in with her two cents eventually, too. I honestly think this could become a great thing. Heck, it already is, all thanks to Vixen getting this started! :D

Anyway, feel free to post or e-mail me if you have any suggestions for the web site for next year (julnowrimo@thewrigro.com). Here is what I'm already planning to do at the end of the month (or before next July)...

- A Past Winners Page that lists all the winners for this year

- A 2005 Participants Page that lists everybody who participated

- A Stats Page (total words written, average words per participant, etc.)

- A new site layout (suggestions for colors/themes/etc., anyone?)

...plus probably a lot more. I'll be archiving things as well, like the tips and such. All the word counts will be reset at the end of the month, but people will be able to register throughout the whole year. I was talking to Vixen earlier and suggested that we hold signups like NaNoWriMo and NaNoEdMo; it would be much easier. Once you signup on the forums, you'd be considered a participant.

I'll edit this if I think of any more things to add.

Snaps for Lisa and Vixish!

I remember that on the NaNo site, you could arrange all of the members by word count, so you could see the people with the highest word count, and you could see where you rank and stuff among everybody else. Although I think that the only reason that that was funky was because there were a LOT more members, so you could be all, "Yes! I'm 2,496th!"

I was thinking about trying to do that. It will be sort of hard for me to do, I'm no professional, but I might be able to figure it out for next year. Or this year, if I get really ambitious. It was difficult enough trying to figure out how to get the word count and novel excerpt options into the profiles. Your word count is actually your "mood", and your novel excerpt is your "bio", I just tweaked the code a bit...

Posting this, even though nobody comes on here anymore...

During the next few days, (Thanksgiving vacation), I'll be upgrading to the latest version of the forum software and adding a few new features. I also fixed the word counts because they stopped working a few months ago and the error was bugging me.

All in preparation for next year. ;)
