Maybe it could be the home of some huge star control related project, like UQM or ultronomicon in scope but the sort of thing most people could do and contribute to, so it's not a mountain of work for you. Again, can't think of anything.

The idea about some kind of really addictive (but which isn't too big a timewaster to be involved with) SC game sounds interesting.

Mini Star Control flash games!

And later on, larger ones.

Ideally, you'd want something which will cause people to come back. That means either regularly new content, or something which can be used as a reference.

He could host the frungy_lovers story archive or something. That place is pretty active and creative.

Maybe you could host some sort of Star Control based game. A bit like the role playing as on the SCDB, but then different.

Wasn't there another role playing form as well, that Pelork did? I recall some sort of board format where you built fleets and moved them. Some sort of automated board game with an SC theme would probably draw a lot of people. But then again, it's a lot of work as well.

Could you give me links plz

Is there some SC flashgames already (I will gladly host them!),and if not, how can I or somebody else make flash games
without buying some software? I don't myself know any freeware flash game maker.

I have some visions about doing a UQM Fan Id's and pages. People would add their own fan identities and make own pages to there.
Cons and problems that I figure:
- forums make almost same job
- I don't have enough PHP skills to make it automate, so I had to add id's and pages manually

This is just but a draft sketch but..

Check out Pelorki, and especially this thread. The links all seem to be dead now, but I remember going there and there being all sorts of statistics fro different fleets and players.

Eth over on SCDB does flash, but he seems to I doubt he'd have time for this. If there are other flash people around, I don't know them. Sorry Sad

As for the Id, I'm not too excited but others might be.

There's all sorts of stuff you could have in that id that forums don't. Favourite melee teams, favourite ship, least favourite ship, tournaments partiicipated in, all sorts.

Forum seems to be down?

Sometimes have been couple minutes downtimes because of overload on MySQL server (I'm using free hosting and server is shared for dozens of accounts). Come back after couple minutes or try to refresh couple times. At the moment forums seems to be ok.

EDIT: Oh man! they really seems to be down! MySQL not working so posting doesn't work!  Tongue maybe this is because of warnings that my host has mailed

I don't want to say I told you so, but...

Anyhow, it's really weird. On the 18th I couldn't access the site at all, from several computers. Yesterday I could, but I didn't try posting. And now it's apparently out again? Stop messing with the  Orz, before they take you for good.

EDIT: It works for me now anyhow.

I visited my free host providers forums; other 000webhost users seems to have mysql problems too. Hope they fix this thing.
Yesterday forums didn't work for me, but today they've been ok...

Some cool updates, like logo, all audio-visual-fun stuff smashed up into one section called *playground* and downloads now working!

Also! You can now upload files under 2mb to UQMFAH!

Btw. like 45% of my visitors are from USA, 40% from Finland and the most of the rest are from Europa.

EDIT: I know, new background is horrible  Undecided  I  thought that it would be cool but....

I'll be honest here. I don't like the name *juicy*. But I see the layout is constantly improving and the site can still work out. Sa-Matra.net seems to have gone splat, so there's a void you can fill. Put the game's entire dialogue up in a place that's easy to find.
