Topic: The State of Bricks in Motion
As you probably know by now, Schlaeps has stepped down as administrator of Bricks in Motion and I am the new administrator for this site.
There is a lot left to be done before this site will really be complete, at least on the same level as the old Brickfilms site was complete, but rest assured we are working on it. There are several areas to be addressed, so I'll do my best to explain what's left to be done:
The Film Directory is not completed. In fact, the directory is not close to being ready to open. Slothpaladin, a capable and experienced programmer as well as a long-time member of this community, has agreed to help in the process of creating the new film directory, along with several other senior members who will be providing feedback. Though this is a central component of the site, completing it will take some time to do right, but we hope to have the directory open soon. Until then, we have the releases forum for sharing and reviewing films.After reviewing applications, we have selected the following members for the Review Panel:
The Resources section is now underway. Nathan Wells and myself are working on a new resources section, there isn't much to show yet but we are conferring with several long-time members of the site and are certainly willing to hear your ideas as well. Resources like Ash's Free Software List will be valuable additions to the resources, whether such resources remain forum threads or become pages in the resources section
Schlaeps had expressed the notion that TEC was 'canceled;' however, I have completed the contest as promised.
Once the key components of this website are up and running, there are many other ideas I would like to explore as ways to expand the site. Presently, however, the priority is to complete the Resources and Film Directory. Thank you,
