Welcome to your new website!
(This spot will be replaced with A real welcome written by the powers that be, I'm guessing The perv who is our leader)
So I decided to try a new page and get it mostly working then invite the Officers in to see what I have wrought. The goal here is an easy to use site with bits and bobs of info, a somewhat active forums, a place for Arise to tell it's story in Picts and Fanfic, Secondary site for guild info (the armory seems a bit more robust but i'll check things out as I go), and a place for people to list needs and wants.
I went with Guildportal since I have used it in the past with Dragoons. It is simple to use, letting me add and modify content without having to do any real page design or layout in HTML/XML (Izzy Lazy? you bet yer ass). The GP site also has ok WoW Integration and an easy to setup paypal link for donations for the vent server(I'll ask what the monthly coast is and if the person hosting it wants this.) and if we have extra dosh an add-free guild site ( $7.50 /month not as important, I can deal with a few banners). GP also has good tools for tracking site active members, auto inactive warnings and the like to keep people coming to the site.
I like the people in Arise and wanted to give something back to the guild, if after the Officers see this site and tell me that it is not wanted I will crush it. If they tell me they like it but want someone else to run it I will hand it over with grace and only a small bit of whining(heh). If the tell me they like it and want me to keep up the good work I will.
You are nice Folk and I shall abide by your will.
Thank you Arise
