The Unofficial Guild of Writers is (apparently) ready now to look for a home site. Please post below your nominations for a site, and list the following attributes:
  • Services provided: forums, Wiki, version control, file sharing, issue tracking
  • Amount of disk space devoted to UGoW
  • Monthly data transfer limits (if any)
  • Availability of system administrator
  • Whether it is a dedicated server
  • Connection type

Below are the candidate sites to date:

    • Services provided: ?
    • Disk space: ?
    • Data transfer limits: ?
    • Sys admin availability: ?

Paradox: could you provide more information on what this site offers? I'll then fill in the information in the post above.

Thanks!

The site is a place holder and only intended to provide some information until we have more meetings and get more information decided.

We will deal with the technical points when we start working to get forums, a wiki, and trac set up.

Um, what? Why would you close the topic? There only has been one single nomination, which is from yourself, and which as Paradox has pointed out isn't even valid.

Such was agreed at the debate last night. I don't believe the chatlog has been posted yet though...

As a Web usability person unaffiliated with GoW ... why wouldn't you use guildofwriters.com? That seems the easiest name for people to remember. And if it's truly a blank slate, you can make it into whatever you want ...

Just my 2 cents! :)

http://www.writers-guild.org

or

http://www.writers-guild.net

...both point to the same placeholder page, reserved simply to offer our community some options now and in the future.

This topic is now closed.

Next, we'll start a poll to decide which site will be the guild's new home.

EDIT: here's the link to the poll:
