DVC website

Need some suggestions for the DVC website!

I'm redoing it from the ground up, and trying to decide how to do the layout for it.
If anyone has any suggestions or samples that I can look at, please let me know. Post URLs or email them to me, either is great.

And if you have suggestions of things to add to the site, let me know.

Thanks!

A long time ago you asked people to send in pics from their movie sets. That was a great idea. Photos of sets, from a high-end lighting and camera setup on the main page to folks who use work lights or shape it by draping black foil over china lanterns shown on a subsequent page—any that are fun, stimulating, and motivating would be cool for the Web site and give it energy. Heck, D, you’re a filmaker and photographer…capture the quintessential Rogue Icon set and show it off!

On second thought, maybe that depends on what the essence of Rogue Icon is…

;)

(heh heh heh)

Actually, I like the idea of having a gallery. I'll have to start nagging people for pics.

Management

Here's my suggestion for the site.

Set it up using PostNuke or something similar. The "look & feel" can be totally customized for whatever style you want to go with. The reason I suggest this is that we are all busy, you guys who run the contest and site are busy as are the contestant. busy busy busy.

However, using a management web app like PostNuke, you'd easily be able to upload updates through the online forms without having to FTP the files down, change them, FTP them back up.

Therefore, the site could more easily stay current with contest/rules/announcements. The cool thing about a PHP application like this is that it's free and your webhost system probably already has it available for you to use.
