    Hey!

    I'm currently designing a new site to be hosted at creativesurgeons.co.uk, but find myself short of ideas. I need people to write about whats close to them, whether its religion, the media, sporting events... anything.

    If you wanna contribute, then send me an e-mail to... [email protected], or just reply to the thread.

    You'd really be helping me, and of course, you'd be fully credited for your contribution of course...

    Love ya all

    At the moment, that is all that's hosted there, yeah - I did say that its to BE HOSTED THERE, not already there. I am just finishing technical alterations to my new site, which isn't online yet, just stored on my laptop. I really don't care to be honest, I just need a hand to get some varied content up there. Whether its illustration, writing, flash games, links, whatever. And if you happen to know sites that have decent 'stuff' online, send me the links.

    OK, so I know that I'm not being particularly specific, in fact, really vague - but I don't wanna influence what people send me. I just want some original content sent to me.

    Please...?

    :confused:

    Close to them?
    Could someone write something about porn or something then?
    Would you really publish it?

    What about psychological studies?
    Guides to hacking, and downloading illegal software?

    Just thinking of random stuff.

    Where exactly is the line drawn?

    Is your site a personal one or is it going to be used purely for entertainment?

    Porn? As far as I'm concerned, there are dedicated sites for that stuff. Jeez, I never thought that this would be so hard. Somewhere, on your travels, you must have found pearls of wisdom? Yes, it is a personal site, but I need to make it sticky, no?

    Flash games, a Flash MP3 Jukebox are the main attractions on it at the mo, but there is a forum set up (I NEED MODERATORS! - Any volunteers?).

    You see my problem? No real content. That's why I need some enlighting stuff, even stuff from uni lectures, dates/times of events, WHATEVER YOU THINK IS INTERESTING!

    and moderators. did i mention i need moderators?

    Why don't you put your own effort into it, sounds like you want to create a great site but you don't want to do the legwork.

    Not porn, just a discussion paper about it or something?!
    Well, i could write other stuff i suppose, but i've got a lot of coursework on right now (which is why i'm wasting my time on here!!!)
    What about song's, poems, short stories?
    I could write some stuff in the crimbo holidays if you want, and send it to you in january, if thats any good (and not too long to wait).

    And for the same reason as i can't write the stuff right now, i can't offer to be a mod (not that i'd be any good at it), because my timetable is packed until the crimbo hol's, and i don't go on the net much at home.

    No, the fact is, I am trying to concentrate on DESIGNING a site. But considering I don't have much experience, despite fact that I have working experience in Flash, Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc. (I worked for glueLondon). Therefore, no-one wants to take me on. Which means I get no experience.

    Catch 22

    That's why I need content. No-one wants to read my bio, and some crappy facts about me. I want to concentrate on the design and analysis, and until somebody is willing to give me a go on a 'real' site, I'm stuck.

    Worst of all, it seems like I'm being persecuted for this.

    Thank you. Discussion papers are exactly the kinda stuff I want. That would be great. I'll send you my e-mail addy when you wanna send some stuff over. And I know what you mean about the time constraints, I have exactly that same problem.

    Yeah, i see the problem.
    I'll see what i can do about material and stuff. I've got a few song lyrics in the works, which i could type up possibly (not that there any good really). And i think i've got some whort stories hanging about.
    I could check if any of my mates have got stuff they could contribute. I know my cousin writes alot of VB, so i could see if theres any code he's willing to contribute.

    Thanks, just send it to me in any readable format, and I'll whip it into a PDF using Adobe Indesign. That way, it'l be harder for anyone to just blatently rip-off any stuff on posted on there.

    I really appriciate this. Any other ppl interested in helping?

    Have you considered contacting some local charities/businesses and offering to create a site for them for free?

    That way you get content *and* experience *and* you're helping out a charity.

    If you know flash, why not create a small flash movie or some basic animation for the site? you can create some fairly decent animations in photoshop w/ image ready also. If your looking at doing this as a resume sort of thing then you want to try and keep it professional, I don't know what to tell you, it is a hard market and you have to have something that the other guys don't something that sets your work apart from the rest. Try putting some ideas down on paper, say a comic strip here, weather forecast there, these are fairly easy to create and add interest to your site.

    Here's a (sort of) example...it's nothing fancy but it does the job very nicely (and it's the sort of charity that you can talk about to potential employers (they got me my first jobs after I worked as an usher there for 3 months )).
