...flash may be lovely (which I may or may not even agree with), but have you seen a SINGLE archaeological (or even traditional business (think Cate)) site using flash extensively? No, you haven't. Because that's just not what is DONE in such contexts. However, given the structure of the live-support system that bears similarities in look to the new site, I bet it'll be based on PHP.

Flash breaks navigation - ugh.

Ok, I did a simple search on "archaeology" to see what I came up with. Almost all of the sites I found were so hold-your-nose bad that I'd be embarrassed to post the links. Of the ones I looked at, most were HTML. One was ASP. And this one, from University of Pennsylvania, looked the best and, whaddaya know, it's PHP just like Maratanos said. I'm sure if I looked at some of the better institutions, I'd get better-looking sites. But I just started from the top of the search results.

Offtopic:

PHP has nothing to do with the layout on the browser. PHP is just a language to create HTML - and it sucks. Been there, run away, walked to Python, now happy :)
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.museum.upenn.edu%2F shows that the side has bad formed html. Even the DOCTYPE is missing which results in rendering the side in quirks mode.

I'm still in favor of Plone. Plone uses standards like CSS2, XHTML, ECMA Script (standarized JavaScript) for its layout and Python on the server. Plone sites are working with right to left languages and also for blind people. Even sites like wikipedia are based on the Plone layout (read the header of the css file).

PS: I'm against Flash for navigation or complete sites, too. That's so 90ties! Flash is great for browser games, fancy gimmicks and youtube but it sucks for information sites.

Am I hallucinating, or did they add a ... to the Coming Soon at www.drcsite.org ?

A DRC site, I assume, would be completely IC and any forum posts would be held to being IC, I would hope.

It would be a good place to go for "official" DRC announcements and the like.

There is an OOC section of the forum. And frankly, it's best that that stays there...

The old drc site had 4 or 5 IC forums and only one OOC forum. However, of late, many posters there tended to ignore the IC format and regularly posted OOC comments in the IC forums, which caused a lot of turmoil. As someone said, taking down the old site has been long overdue.

There's no guarantee that the new drc site will even have any forums for explorers - at least I haven't seen any guarantees. My guess is that they will, but will probably be moderated. At least, I hope so.

Oh, my! Somebody who speaks my language! :D (Unfortunately, I don't mean German, in which I am too rusty to function. :( )

Now it just says "Coming ...". Apparantly "soon" is no longer an operative condition. Uh oh.
