Long ago when we were at Yahoo, we had a Website with all our information and rules listed. When we moved to the forums, it wasn't necessary to have a website anymore (and no one updated it anyway). But a few months ago our admin Ryan had asked me if I wanted to make an URPG website so he could put a link on his site advertising the URPG. At the time it was important, but I'd like to get that going right now. It'll be a fun project for us to put together.

- I would need people who have run or run sites and know what to do.

- The site would have to match Pe2k's site design.

- I'm not up to date on free site hosting. The only one I've used in the past is Geocities.

- Basically anyone that wants to contribute something can post. I don't have a plan on how to get this done right now... but that's why I'm posting this.

Well, since Ryan is offering free hosting on his server and his site, I figure we might as well take it. As far as I can tell, Ryan's server has always been stable and we haven't had any problems with it.

As for organizing it, I suppose we can divide up the different parts of the URPG and then people can sign up to code it. We would have to all have some sort of standard coding overall so that it looks fine. Of course, that also means we have to figure out what we want on the site.

I think that all the permanent information such as the rules should go on the site. Anything that changes constantly such as what's on the current auction should be left out so that we don't have to update as often.

Well, the only other free web hosts I know, are Tripod and Freewebs. Not sure if it'll help, but could be useful :tongue:

well, I'm leaving this open for members to control and start working on themselves. i'll be on the outside of the project for now (because I'm busy with other things).

basic layout of planned site:
- all important stickied threads would be linked here.
- the main page would have an introduction explaining what the URPG is. it would also have any major announcements like you see on most sites.
- I was also thinking of having a Member Review page, like people give reviews for movies. *shrugs*
- it would look just like PE2k's site, with a few differences here and there.
- and I would also need access to the site (username and such) so if it needed to be edited I could.

that's all I've really thought about. I hope more people would like to help. bascially anyone that wants to help can decide how to work on this. besides, I don't understand HTML Ryan is talking about. :susp:

I own the Togepi Battling Network Website and I will advertise Ultra RPG on my site for the following: Free or $1000 Ultra RPG Dollars

Yes I can help. For free. Or Ultra RPG Cash. Yes I am Greedy, Envying and Togepi. I can run the gyms and/pr Tournaments. Just make me a Moderator please [if you can] on Ultra RPG. I am begging you!! I have a lot of time and can work for free. Please don`t invite Donald Trump! I hate getting fired!
Edit: I will write paragraphs or any thing but sprite/banner design. Oh if I am hired please advertise my site and I will advertise yours. Heck, if you want, you can use TBN [Togepi Battling Network]. Although I need help.I have the HTML somewher... oh here is the link: http://www.freewebs.com/togepifan/index.htm use it

Togepi thta technically a Knock-off.

Anyway, I think i would be intrested in typing up the different subbmissinos and parts of the web page. I'll type up an example. I don't know anything about coding, so unless I could learn anything, I would have to send it to whoever has acess to the page.

Togepi
12-21-2005, 01:18 AM
yeah it is a knock off. abandon my site`s ideas. I will still work and help take care of gyms/tournaments. I also can help with anything non sprite-like. But I can still advertise it on my site for free. You don`t even have to let me advertise on your site! Please hire me!

I'll gladly donate my time time this site! Just Pm me a job and I'll get on it! I might even work on a banner. Once i find the perfect background. Hmmm...what says URPG? Let's see what is the URPG? Battling....battling with Pokemon....Pokemon are cool.....Pokemon are different colors.....people like different colors......People like Pokemon!!!! I'll edit it on once it's done.

I've got the background picked out. The idea came when I remembered the Pokemon are different colors. Using a measly pencil tool and thedit color section I made 10 little squares. I copied the squares and I made a line going from top to bottom. Then I made copies of that line filling the whole banner. Now what to put on it? Any suggestions?

Make a pokemon`s outline appear in the sketch. Perhaps multiples. I would suggest: Pikachu Togepi Meowth

hmm... that gives me an idea...

and no offense CB, good concept, but it looks liek an eyesore....

Nasty Plasty

Well maybe a Pikachu. I should do a poll for this. Because the goal is too get people to come if I take the top 5 Pokemon and the top trainer I could add them on. Join the URPG in it too. That way chances are a lot of people will like those Pokemon and that trainer. That's what I'll do. None taken so I should use Darker colors or something? Or maybe like have somebody who has better eyesight than me to make the concept except with better colors?

Narrow it down first. There is a maximum of 20 different answers. Not 397 [D/P Deoxys and Castform forms were included in that number]

I know that's why I'm asking people"What they want to see up there" before I make the poll. So just pick 1 Pokemon and Trainer and if it is one of the top 10 for it's group then it will make the poll.

That does look interesting. Maybe we should get some dimensions before we make the banner.

the backgrounds have to match something similar to pe2k's website, blue commune-like (doesn't have to be exact but must having matching colors/design at least.) link. (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/) also, the main banner will be the banner that wins the Banner contests.

I guess really all that's needed is someone to put all these together, links to the threads, and format the background. if you guys want to work together and make a practice site just to give an idea, go ahead. :wink:

I'll try something... i have an account on Geocities and I'll try to get the pE2K background on it.

edit... I hate Geocities.... it is so hard t work with, an dit won't let me upload any files. We need someone who knows what they 're doing to help.

OK...

It's finally summer, so I reckoned there will be more people with more free time to kill, with me being one of them.

I'm rather handy with HTML, PHP and some other webcoding languages, plus I have a range of neat webdesign utilities at my disposal. Basically what I'm trying to say is that I would want to make the website.

If I could get some specs on what the website would need I could get started with the coding.

Hm, it's good to see this is coming back into action. I would love to make the skin, and if someone can code the graphics to fit together how I want them, I could fancy it all up a bit. I have a great idea for the look of it, but I'm going to need your help dictating exactly what I need to make.

I would, however, like to make my own title banner to fit the skin, since VT's doesn't match the idea of BlueCommune very well.

You could make multiple skins. The funny thing is I actually had a random skin program in mind, which could randomize the skin every week/day/ time someone visits. Or we could let the visitors use their favorite skin, just like on the forum.

I think we should compile a list of what we will need to create: Banners, backgrounds, links, formats; I could even make this a Flash-navigated site.
