Roadmap and Status
SITE STATUS: Things are more or less working in "read mode". No new content can be added, comments are disabled. The profile edit form should be working. I need to get email wired up to allow account recovery - maybe also add a CAPTCHA on the sign up form because I did have to zap about 20 fake accounts. The forums are working but I left them disabled until I get email issues sorted out (notifications and so forth). I may hold on that until I move this all off of Heroku.
The code stack was completely retooled and up-revved. I looked at a couple forum plug-ins and they didn't mesh well with the rest of the code. The plans for when I can get back to working on this are:
- Put in the "missing man formation" feature to allow salutes and stories about those who are no longer with is.
- Add some kind of messaging mechanism. I'll either graft in a DM mechanism I use on other projects, or spool up a "Slack Lite" kind of deal so we can get some of the benefits of an open chat channel for members only.
Move the whole mess off of Heroku and onto one of my own servers. This will allow using things which are expensive with Heroku's pricing model.
- Add a basic mailing list mechanism if the site starts getting traction.
- Add an ability to upload pictures. This gets easier once it's off of Heroku.
