Many of you have probably heard about Thales [link]. Due to it lacking Bahamut 1.8.x support, it needs to be modified some. We’ve talked about it for quite a while now, and during 2006 we will either code support for Bahamut 1.8.x into Thales, or code another software just like it, but probably only for collecting statistics. Wait and see what happens, you may be in for a treat!

Yes, that’s right! We want a new homepage. Why? Well, we’ve had the current page for almost three years, and it’s kinda dull looking, don’t you think?
We have a few things in mind with the new homepage:
* It has to be easily translated into different languages
* There is to be services integration (Log on with your FQ nick)
* Set custom settings using your services password. (The language settings should be transferred)
* RSS feeds with news
* Trouble ticket system
* Live statistics about the network
* Graphic server map, dynamicly generated
* Some contect could preferrably be edited through some kind of CMS, but that’s not necessary
* Coded in PHP (4.x) and using MySQL as a backend (4.0-4.1)
Feel like contributing? Again, we cannot give you anything else than our gratitude and proper credits. We’ll get it done ourselfes, eventually. We just would like to see it done before the end of 2010, because that’s how long it’s going to take if we do it by ourselfes
Give ph0x a hollar via email (ph0x [-at-] freequest (dot) net) or on IRC if you want to help out.
We want you!
Well, that sounds a bit like Uncle Sam is trying to recruit you, doesn’t it? We are looking for people that want to contribute to what we do. We can’t offer anything more than our gratitude and proper credit for the work you do, so if you’re lookin’ to get paid you should stop reading right here.
First, we’re looking for translaters. We’d like to have services translated into as many languages as possible. We’ve done a great deal on the Swedish translations, but there’s plenty more left to do. Ideas on what we need to implement in services is also welcome, along with ideas for our ircd. Ultimately, we’re also looking for someone to redesign our entire website structure (*.freequest.net). More about that in a later post.
Some of you may think there are things we’ll never implement in our ircd. That’s not entirely true; we’ll be glad to implement new features, it just doesn’t mean we’re going to use them on FreeQuest. If you come up with clean patches for using IPv6, HostServ, Halfops or anything like that, we may very well implement it. As long as it is possible to turn the features off and it doesnt impact on normal operations, we might implement it. And, if it’s good, we may start using it on FreeQuest aswell.
Yes, we know we haven’t been much active lately, neither coding, on irc or writing here. We just simply don’t have anything new to share with you. As usual, all comments and suggestions are welcome!
