Dear Members,

We are looking for an individual who can do some web development on the World Affairs Board and the World Affairs Blog.

For web development on our new World Affairs Blog site, which will be a WordPress blog, we are offering the $11.95 Multiple Domain Hosting Plan, valued at over $140 a year.

Multiple Domain Hosting - Reliable business hosting plans (http://www.rochenhost.com/hosting/multiple/)

For also developing a complementary scheme for the World Affairs Board, we are offering the $25.95 Reseller Hosting Plan, valued at over $300.

Business Reseller Plans - Ideal for web designers or developers reselling hosting (http://www.rochenhost.com/resellers/)

Of course, we are more than willing to throw in a tin or two of butter cookies as well. :)

For the blog, we are looking for an attractive red and grey color scheme, and for the board, a polishing. A customized header, button sets, and red and gray hues. Simplicity and ease of use is required for both designs, and they need to be complementary to one another.

If you're interested in doing some web development work, feel free to contact me to make arrangements.

Yeah, I do such stuff. This (http://www.nostalgicarchives.com/) was the last blog I set up. Here is my Linkedin profile: LinkedIn: Srirangan Srinivasan (http://www.linkedin.com/in/srirangan)

As I've been a part of the community I'll volunteer my time for this. I can either be the guy who does the "stuff", but then will be able to work for WAB only for a few hours in the weekends. Else I can act as a consultant to the person who volunteers to do it (and/or to the WAB management) as I've got plenty of expertize in similar projects.

PS: I don't really need the hosting, I've got plenty already. :)

Sir, please don't call me 'sir'. I'm a civie, wear glasses and work all day on the 'puter. 'Sir' should be reserved for those with uniforms or Ian Botham .. :P

And as a mark of respect for an unselfish act.:) I'm long retired from the armed forces, and think of myself as a fully qualified civilian now. Admittedly that took some time to happen!:eek:

I'll make up a VBulletin style and post some screenshots. Did you want any of the elements moved around as in template modifications or any extra menu's added?

A rough draft drawn up in PhotoShop would do... Srirangan has taken the blog template so we still need somebody to do vBulletin.

Please do. Use the existing white-red color scheme for your template. Shades of grey can be used for gradients. We are looking for a more "smooth" and neat uncluttered layout. You can come up with fixed width or full screen fluid layouts. Extra points for fitting in the Google Ads nicely. :D

Put together a PSD, there's prolly another designer sending in a template. The best design will be chosen.

PS: Matt can answer those menu-links related questions.

Thanks,

Don't forget the subtle metallic hues. The navbar would remain as is.

OK hopefully I will have something to show you later today. Currently I am redrawing the globe in Photoshop I didn't have any globes with the same aspect. So basically Red, Grey, and Silver's for the colors correct?

Btw is the blog this one Blog (http://www.strategicaffairs.org/)

Srirangan will be handling the blog. We need a very professional, polished appearance for the forum. As far as the color scheme goes, red, gray, silver; gray could be made more dominant if it proves easier to make more attractive.

The blog on that URL was just me testing out the installation on one of my URLs while awaiting the DNS resolving the blog one (worldaffairsblog.com).

Although, I am not an expert on designing "beautiful pages",I can lend an hand on the "server side processing" and database design.

I do have experience in designing Java based Enterprise systems(stuff I do for living :) ).

If my knowledge is of any use,I would be glad to assist.

I am greatly impressed with those volunteering. I knew the boardmembers had talent, and now they are proving that we really are an electronic fellowship.:) Well done gentlemen!

OK sorry things got delayed and the Packers lost horror of horrors.

OK, here is a first draft.......need to find some military images for the right side yet. I gave it a real subtle gradient and made the bottom header links metallic. Also the space between the Left image and the start of the bottom links section can be used as a repeating background for a non-fixed size header.

After seeing it on the background here I need to make the stroke on the header background a little darker.

BadKharma, that's a good rough draft but still a work in progress. I'm going to get in touch with my superiors and we're going to discuss it, I'll get back to you on it.

Ok let me know and I'll also look at making some variations. Now that I have the globe drawn as a vector shape I can do alot with it.
Here it is with some military pictures blended in
