Resurrection of JediBoard

Many of us still remember how back in the day, when JK/MotS were the hottest Star Wars games around, that Danbeck had the JediBoard up where you could post your own games, and you could look them up on Qtracker. It was the free alternative to the MSN Gaming Zone (formerly IGZ). All these venues have long since died (QT is still around, but it's JK/MotS support is limited to lan games or if you post a game and only other QT users can see it I think).

Well there's a project to resurrect the JediBoard functionality.

I've created a repository for the associated code on GitHub for anyone that's interested in that sort of thing. There's not a lot there yet but I should be pushing more code at least once each day.

Awesome. Will the app have the option of different themes/colors? I'm wanting to re-create the orange text on black background that the real JB had before it went offline, for example.

I have pushed a test version of JediBoard to Heroku for people to play around with. You can find out how to use it by reading the news post here.

I've been toying around with the idea of having a different theme for each game. For instance, if the user selects 'JKDF2', the theme will change to something that matches that particular game. Once I finalize the CSS layout of the main page, I may end up holding a community competition where users can submit design layouts for individual games, based upon said CSS3/HTML5 code. However, these are just thoughts that I haven't really explored much yet.

As far as the current design goes, it's very much temporary. I'm afraid that I've spent too much time learning to program & not much time on design. However, I do hope to have a far more aesthetically pleasing design, soon.

P.S. I slightly remember the layout of the original jediBoard, but not well enough. If you have any screenshots of it I'd be happy to take a look & see if it's something that I'd be interested in.

I have pushed an unfinished version of JediBoard to Heroku if anyone would like to play around with it. You can access the page with the following link.

http://smooth-mountain-8387.heroku.com/

There's still a bit of work to do but it's coming along nicely. I'm aware of a multitude of problems, including the errors with the colors & layout & will resolve them soon.

If you'd like to post a link to your mods, maps or hostname, the field(s) use the Markdown language. If you're not familiar with that syntax, I've posted examples on my forum.

If this thing keeps going, I would be interested in checking it out sometime this year (depending upon how busy I am all summer)...
