It’s not bad.
You could use a little more organized webpage. May I suggest some tables?

I’m Petey. I’m co-webmaster of www.theforceteam.com. Basically, a design genius on the team does the design and I do the content and all of the hardware stuff. It’s running off my own webserver, which I set up with apache, php, cgi, perl, and mySQL.

Hopefully, we’ll be moving over to a new server soon with more bandwidth and email capabilities.

Woah petey (hehe), don’t you think that signature is a bit excessive in size?

And on the topic of a forum for webmasters, you could just use the Website Design/Showcase forum.

Hey,
Name’s Chris and I’m Webmaster for Team 781.
http://www.kineticknights.com

I do know that a lot of the functions aren’t working, but I’m working on a new design and layout.

While I don’t understand what this thread is about, here is my bit of info.

Hey, AJ Quick, the webmaster of Team 6’s site, CogSquad.org. This is probably my 10th major website I’ve ever built or worked on, the main of the code is programmed in PHP, with a huge mySQL database with over 15,000 entries in it. We feature a huge scouting database with pages about every team in FIRST last year, and this year. Including up to date copies of the Match data, and Seeds from each regional, not to mention awards, and webcasts. Our scouting database will be made global this coming summer, being available on Palm, and PocketPC, and XML format for websites.

Our forum is a copy of phpBB, with about 20 hours of modifications made to the base script. Including new profile entries, and new calender, attachments, and several very small modification you may never recognzie they are there.

There is also an image gallery I wrote, where other teams can upload pictures of their robot, and view pictures we too have uploaded.

Plus a links section, where anyone can add their favorite team website, or important link to it.

Our site has been booming since it first started about 3 weeks ago, and the future is only getting brighter.

Please come on over, and register, and use the resources we have here. Also, any errors, or suggestions you may have?

YAY Kinetic Knights… I was actually at your page yesterday. I registered, but when I log in I get a weird blank page. Actually, a lot of the links get me the same weird blank page. And your page is definitly lacking content.

:frowning: LOL, I hope you guys work on your website or put some photos up or something because your team was really cool :slight_smile:

Team 201’s Web forums & Scouting info (http://www.feds201.com)

The entire site uses PHP (www.php.net) and MySQL (www.mysql.com). All of the db interaction and templateing uses the phpBB (www.phpbb.com) board structure.

Our scouting system features a poll, along with a robot profile which can be edited by a member. We have all match results from www.usfirst.org. Also, we have links to some other major scouting sites. Lastly, i’ve worked with Brandon here and we display any pics on cd of the robot, links to start threads on a team, and a quick search feature. Also, I’ve created a comments section in which people can comment on a team. (It’s actually just a bunch of forums which i’ve made hidden from the index)

Also, I’ve made many changes to the phpBB code. If you ever have any questions about this great bulletin board system, feel free to ask me.

I’m hopeing to work this year with other teams on CD to create a massive scouting network for next year.

Oh, a little cool feature about our scouting is:
http://www.feds201.com - Our main portal/index
http://fbi.feds201.com - The main team list / scouting page
http://fbi.feds201.com/201 or http://fbi.feds201.com/47 - Takes you directly to that teams page.

Team 75… came very close to winning the web site award at the J&J Mid-Atlantic regional… www.roboraiders.com

Your site is pretty cool and conrats on the web award

Hey, Eric from RoboCards (Team 5). I’m currently constructing a new layout for the website. Hopefully I will be able to put up a lil’ user login/register thing.

I’d have to say that #201’s website is the best (besides #6). I’ve not been to all, but so far, they are.

Currently though, team 5’s website is shabby on the cross-browser thing.

My name’s George and I’m webmaster for Beach Cities Robotics, Team 294.

I’m redesigning the website right now, hopefully I’ll be able to put in a locally hosted forum and a private team area.

Look at it while you can. I’m planning on redesigning it over the summer: Woburn Robotics.

One piece of advice I could give to a few of these websites, is to lose the dark background. There are a whole lot more, but that’s a loooong post.

i’m the…well…former webmaster for SPAM…gave it over to a sophomore this year…it’s at http://www.spamrobotics.org/

Aaron Knight here, webmaster for Neverending Chaos…

Here’s our team’s site: http://first891.topcities.com.

Unfortunately, of late we have been required to go to a (hopefully) temporary mirror free site while our school district gets its collective act together. Soon, hopefully, we will be able to relaunch it with movies from last year and this.

The site is entirely designed using HTML and simple JavaScript, and is created using Adobe Photoshop 7 and Golive 5/6 exclusively, no PHP or anything (too busy to learn that).

Regards

CHAMPIONSHIP PICTURES POSTED…

Well, here’s a link to team 1075’s website: www.sinclairsprockets.com. Made with Photoshop 6 and Notepad. Seems to look good in all browsers I tested it on (NS4, NS7, Opera6, Opera7, IE4-6). It is not updated at all lately, and there is not much recent info. I’ll remake it over the summer, but maybe the design will stay. The site desperately needs a real portal engine, a forum, and maybe a Flash version :slight_smile:

Hi all! My name’s David, and i’m the webmaster from Team 66. www.willowrunrobotics.com

The editor offered by our host is trellix, which doesnt allow for much html editing. If you know a good host that will accomodate both WYSIWYG and HTML let me know. Also, if anyone knows of good places in the SE Michigan area that have camps for web design let me know, im interested in learning more! Thanks a lot.

Yo people… David66 does your host have ftp capabilities? if so u can just use notepad/frontpage/Dreamweaver etc. to build the site and upload via FTP. An excelent free ftp software is smartFTP (avaible at downloads.com). Also, Frontpage and DreamWeaver have FTP capibilities built in. And by the way what do you all think about my stie/my teams site. www.circuitrunners.com We have our own host, but it redirects to the county’s server b/c thats where the site was orginally at. Except, the county’s server seems to be not fully functioning right now… should be back up soon though.

Hey, I’m Albert and i’m the Webmaster (and pr, and media design, and… you get the picture) for 1072 (hrt).

I’ve been doing webdesign for about 6 years now, playing around with lots of different WYSIWYG programs, spending alot of time doing HTML only, and then settling on Adobe GoLive as my editor of choice. Our site is done in HTML - I haven’t bothered to learn PHP and perl doesn’t really lend itsself to inline scripting - though we do have a perl-powered forum which is lightly modified to meet our needs (i just put it up a couple weeks ago, so we’re still breaking it in.) expected additions are a gallery and a calendar, which should be up shortly. Our programmers know linux and perl better than i do, but none of them are any good at web design, so they don’t bother with it, leaving me to do all the CGI-coding/server maintainence.

ah, life on an understaffed team :wink:
