Previous ministers really only specialized in one area and have only created guides. But that is really not enough to turn the resources page into a go to place for help.
I have a knack for simple functional websites. I actually despise having lots of flashy things going on when all I want to do is get information One of the things I have in mind are “program finder” scripts where the user can select a few variables e.g. price range,features required. platform ect and then the script will display the user some software or hardware that meet the requirements. I have enough php knowledge to do basic things like that.
I will also oversee which submitted articles get added. I will also make a few articles/guides as well. The main change that will happen under me is that I will simply add links to guides on other sites that are useful. For example doom9.net has lots of useful guides but none on the brickfilms resources page. Another peeve I have is that some of the articles use Quicktime to display movies. I really resent that because Quicktime has stability issues and is a security vulnerability for windows users. If I am elected I will try to convince people to use more reliable codecs for web viewing such as Divx for the guides. I will also cover non proprietary solutions for software users who prefer that.
My experience is mostly video editing and web designing. I know some BASIC and php. I know more then enough HTML to maintain the page. I will appoint a vice minister who is good in my weaknesses to assist me.
I will actively try and recruit people who have posted guides to start adding them to the resources page. I will place absolutely no judgment on the person is trying to contribute, whether he/she has 1 post or 10,000. “Social” stance doesn’t effect anything either.

In my post I clearly said I would make useful scripts or programs if you will. You are not the person to tell people if they can brickfilm or not. The most I have seen out of you is a lame 5 second “movie” of you mocking you and “The Tie Army Thread” which is probably one of the worst movies in the directory and has dead links.March 15, 2008 at 7:43 pm #381066March 15, 2008 at 7:45 pm #381070
