    Attention Webheads - Website for Lucca

    I'm posting this in the basketball forum because it involves setting up a site ("freelucca.com" or some permutation of that) per Kyle's wishes in his Media Attention for Lucca thread.

    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...ion-lucca.html

    bostinelosd has said he can host the site for free if we get it designed. Now, I have some decent skill at designing static sites--purely HTML and CSS stuff--but if we make freelucca.com with some capacity for users to post comments, we're going to need something more dynamic. I can't find anything in Javascript or DHTML that lets random people post stuff to a static website.

    This leads me to believe that we'll need some kind of CMS system, like a Drupal or Joomla, to make the site more interactive. But we'd need to set it up on someone else's server, because I don't have one, and that might be more work than necessary for a small site like this.

    Does anyone have good ideas? I'd be more than happy to throw together a design for a static site, but I'm stubbing my toe on the technical intricacies of a bigger site.

    Another option: we can build a website using some of the available online tools. I am looking at Web hosting provider - Bluehost.com - domain hosting - PHP Hosting - cheap web hosting - Frontpage Hosting E-Commerce Web Hosting Bluehost right now, and they have pretty much everything we'll need and freelucca.com is available.

    I would be happy to help provide content or whatever someone without much in the way of computer skills can do, but most of what you said is completely foreign to me.

    Ha, my bad. If you or anyone else wants to contribute, it would be sweet to have a well-worded dissertation on the outrage of the situation, explaining in detail what has happened, maybe provide some tidbits on Lucca's background.

    looks like it has been purchased and is all red right now. That is a good first step.

    I'm assuming content would be useful? I can try to get started on something. School work is way overrated. Would it work to send you something in Word form? I could perhaps post on here to try and get feedback too.

    That said, my writing tends to be rather dry... so if anyone else wants to contribute chime in.

    Would it be OK to link to Lucca's Media Day interview? His responses just ooze with disappointment and it really makes one sympathetic to his plight.

    Good idea. I haven't actually seen it. Is it on cyclones.com?

    This is a great idea. Just make sure you reference the right places otherwise people get all wierd.

    You know, joining up with Washington people might be smart as a rwo prong attack: Bg 12 and Pac 10. If it can happen twice under the new committee, it can happen to any school. Basically NCAA is trying to squeeze off the European pipeline. Myself, I suspect our amateur teams have quite bit of reimbursement that is quite similar xcept they do not bring in European college players in return.
