What features does this site need? I have some thoughts.

  • A logo
  • A navicon
  • A way to find GBC MOCs, review, and rate them (but without requiring effort on the part of the builders to post them).
  • Skin improvements

  • How about a nice CSS box to put images and videos in?
  • And how about an embedded video add-in that's more secure than VideoFlash?

For the rating system, could the ArticleRating extension be used? Or do we want something easier, like socialprofile's five star rating thing?

Cody, can you elaborate on what you mean by the GBC Rating System? Which ones of Ajraddatz's suggestions would work better for what you have in mind?

Woops, I was just giving it a name for what Slow was describing. I didn't have really anything in mind, although I think the former would work well if we allowed GBCs as articles in the mainspace.

Okay. Do you want to put in a commit to install Extension:YouTube? Or maybe bring something up on Meta about replacing VideoFlash with YouTube altogether globally? Thanks. :)

Okay cool, I'll probably do a forum. Although there also seems to be a third extension mw:Extension:EmbedVideo? Do we want to include that in our choices to replace VideoFlash?

Yes, go ahead.

Actually nevermind, I'll just create a commit, it'll be easier.

Can someone make a Template:Tip? I started to make one for interpretations of the standard, but realized I was going to end up making something someone would have to redo later...
