If anyone here knows how to make skins in phpBB2, I would be happy to hear from them. (phpBB3 is going to be released soon)
In so far as my own time is concerned, the problem for me is balancing my time between paid work and the IDFL. So the overall progress is a bit slow and I'm trying to work on a priority basis.
The Joomla based page (www.abms.net.au/cms
) is where we will be migrating to. You will see that on that page, I've already done some 'Falconizing'. And it can be used.
I just haven't been advertising that link too much since I haven't finished setting up Joomla. Again, if someone knows how to setup Joomla and can help, please do.
The new league format is intended to solve a few problems we had in Season 2. I've added a bunch of new functions into the Web League that will make it easier to manage:
1) A competition format that has a finite duration.
2) A competition format that will enable vPilots who haven't developed their skills to get recognition by introducing the Division based competition in Stage 2 of each season.
3) A function that will automatically setup a new season, so going from Season to Season will be easier.
4) During the Divisional Stages, the Web League will be used to organise matches instead of the forum.
I have a few more things to add, but am going to hold off until we finish season 3 and get some feedback. Emailing from the Web League (for general infomation) and Automatic scoring according to the format we use.
So the plan is to increase the admin team with skills in areas that need work (thus enabling more to be done in a smaller amount of time) and reducing the manual overhead of administering the competition where possible.
