ALE not yet dead...read on

First of all, sorry for the lack of postings made here at EAB over the past year but my real life has been hectic and updating a pure HTML/CGI site became more time consuming than I wished it to be.

ALE as it stands is in the water and being eaten by Sharks, big sharks, bigger than that fake one in Jaws and nastier than the big effort from Deep Blue Sea. So it's quite dead.

ALE in the future (2003) on the other hand is not dead. Well not yet anyhow. We are in talks with Ztnet for a new SQL connection and will soon begin re-developing the site, previews will be available in the new year and I will provide the URLs here.

We will be taking on "staff" members at ALE and accepting user contributions via the free membership area (mid 2003) so that updates are ongoing and should be a huge help to the site itself. Trusted members (my friends and some online buddies) will be able to write FULL reviews of games and upload 2 screen grabs of each title as well as submit news to the front page and change some other sections of the site as and when needed.

The content of the site will be stripped ever so slightly with some larger files being dropped, not many but a few here and there so if there is anything you need from the site remember to get it soon.

Those that have followed by current project (CPC Zone) will no doubt be aware of the effort gone into making that site what it is today. The same amount (if not more) will go into ALE 2003 and content of all kinds (covers/historical info/system specs etc) will all be greatly accepted, full credit will be given to everyone who submits something to the site.

If you have any further questions then feel free to ask them right here, I will be back every now and again to check on the postings.

Expect the current ALE to have all HTML content stripped soon. Files and structures should remain the same.

Thanks, have a great Xmas.

ALE will also need a new logo for 2003 so if any budding and willing artists want to contribute just send them to:

malc@emuunlim.com

PS: Now in talks with a few possible members of staff to keep ALE afloat next year. If anyone is interested in the following you can email me too.

Please note ALE is in VERY EARLY re-development right now so it may be some time.

o News Posters (front page access only)
o Game Reviewers (front page/review section access)
o Content Managers (general content of the site, links etc)

Malc could you change the credit name of Megaball, Megaworm, Hydrozone, Chuck Rock 2: Son Of Chuck reviews with the name.

Paul, The Green Amiga Alien on you updated site. Thanks.

I can help with being a News Poster, if you want me. as long as I can post via a forum as I don't want to mess up your code.

Paul - you will not mess up the code. It will be EXACTLY the same as a new topic in a forum (or close as possible) so it should be a piece of p!ss.

Yeah I'll update your credit on the new ALE.

Already *possibly* got another person interested so that is 3 of us at least.

As I said time is the problem but more people on board the better.

Please Note This is all riding on a MySQL connection being setup by Ztnet. Once this is approved I'll be on here to let you know. Development of the site will be done on my local server and switched live when ready.

Oh, I've fixed the poll error at the current ALE site. All pages should work fine now (minus the poll).
