would be a better translation (still imperfect, both read "golden apple corpse"). auto-translate much? ;)

And I don't know how I missed it. I'll add it and update the file accordingly.

Can I get a volunteer to scour the meme bombs and the Post of the Day thread for lollercaust marginalia?


We're looking for 1-3 line snippets which evoke horrormirth

Mein Kampf is really, really, REALLY fucking boring.  Imagine the whiniest Livejournal ever, and add Jews, then set it in the 1920s and 30s.  That is Mein Kampf.

whats the forum bot, and do you want a hand with the front page because it really is in need of an overhaul.

the forumbot is not meant for this forum. think of a sort of IRC chatterbot, but then on a forum. it could be useful for numerous things, or at least lulz. it's also my first attempts at writing a program in Python and i keep putting off working on it, even though the coding is quite straightforward. i'm still working on the (programming) interface to easily have the python script log on, read and post. the actual "AI" aspect is really of secundary importance, as a simple ruleset with some manual steering will be sufficient for most purposes, i think.

the front page, yeah i could use a hand with that. mostly with the graphics design part of it. i can do cool graphics, but it's really time-intensive and i'm too perfectionist :) however, once i got a layered design in photoshop (or gimp), i can transform it into neat HTML and CSS without much effort.

currently my design is looking like this:
http://www.principiadiscordia.com/new_index.html

which looks very fancy (except in IE6, but i can fix that), but only if your resolution is 1280px wide :) otherwise the chao slides a bit behind the logo, which "looks like a mistake" according to cram, and i agree.

btw, i mailed the guy who painted that sacred chao painting (same guy that painted the cover of the hardback PD) and he's totally okay with us using it for the front page, as long as we give him [Mat Sadler] credit somewhere.

so if someone could perhaps draw up a graphics design, sort of similar to the one i have now (because i think what i have now looks really sexy) but without the problem that it looks crappy at less than 1280px, i could get on with the HTML and CSS.

and then all those fancy features like a list of the latest blog postings, a random line from our news-ticker, and whatever more.

Might I recommend simply "Principia Discordia full text" and "Black Iron Prison full text" instead of "Read the Principia Discordia" ?  It kind of feels like "Welcome to our website!  Would you like to read any of our tracts?"

ok i'm just trying to sort of re-think (and hope to start some discussion--input, people?) the structure of what should be on the domain, trying to get an idea of info that should be there, and old stuff that might as well go away.

about the banners, didn't know that. i hadn't even seen them actually, they look shiny! for the links page, i just need a list with categories, titles, links and short description. don't bother with the HTML itself please :) and if some links are just plain ugly or not valid anymore, throw them out, the less the better IMO.
i'm thinking of putting the banners+code on the same page, below the links themselves, i don't really like the pop-up solution that is used now.

by the way, can a mod/admin please split this thread to the meta-forum, starting at Faust's "do you want a hand with the front page" post, as not to pollute the volunteers thread?

i'd like to turn most other pages into the same layout/design as i now have made, the links, downloads, gasmfeed and reading list pages cause those are easy. later on i'd love to adapt the blog to this design as well, and perhaps even the PD and BIP books.

I'll do it.  Just let me summon up the energy...
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Hey, if i wanted a wiki that was totally unrelated to Discordia (like, for personal, nerdy reasons), which wasn't linked from the front, is there any chance I could get one set up here? If so, i don't need one now. But may in the future, to coordinate weird unrelated nerd projects.

Oh, I'm also capable of recording podcasts again.  So if you want rants or pieces recorded, just ask.
