Dude I've been barking up this tree for years. I'd do it myself if I had any idea of what I was doing. Not enough of us are active for anybody to really put in the work I guess? I would donate some money for sure to make it happen though.

n.b. this is something that several people have once decided to take on as a passion project, and subsequently abandoned, probably because it's high effort/low payoff, if not that there's pretty much always something more personally fulfilling to work on than skinning a forum 14 years past it's prime

w/r/t money, my personal stance is that money still probably wouldn't motivate me to spend the few hours I'm awake and not at work working on this instead of something I care about

I've offered many times to pay someone to make a forum skin for this place. It doesnt have to ape one of the old ones, just something that isn't this god awful default SMF thing that makes us look like a three member spin off group with their own invisionfree board. That ended with the .cc domain getting a half baked custom forum build that was subsequently abandoned and the domain lost to limbo.

As VCR said, it's hard to reasonably expect someone to pour hours into a complex project when we're all grown ass adults these days with our own soul crushing responsibilities to attend to. I do think that something less blase would be hugely beneficial to the forum/community because I can't possibly imagine young aspiring artists to take the site seriously when it looks like this, but that's just the way it is for the time being.

At this point I'd almost just settle for a "midnight" theme or a dark/blue/black. Nothing fancy. Just dark like my asshole.

tbh the place to be a young aspiring artist is on centralized social media where it's possible to discover people

Call me old fashioned but I think there is a benefit to a dedicated website for people to share their work with like minded people for the purposes of self improvement before you reach the point of wanting to start sharing things in the social media sphere. Places like DA, tumblr, and NG are designed to fascilitate that kind of thing, but due to their size it’s like YouTube where most are liable to never get any kind of feedback or connect with the user base at large. Here, with how tightly knit the community is, someone sharing something is practically guaranteed some degree of interaction, even at the height of however many years ago. Maybe it’s nostalgia talking (probably) but I don’t think the Clock Crew has outlived it’s usefulness, though there’s little denying our relevancy is mostly historic, for lack of a better term.

i need neither but i do like money solely because i'm a greedy pigdog




progress: i went over to my backpack and found the raspberry pi that has apache on it. it is now plugged in and on the local network. haven't gotten around to installing this current forum software on it but this is probably the fastest progress i've made on a clock crew project in years

I actually turned that off yesterday and something along the lines on "why are there two fucking pis plugged in and this one isn't even doing anything"



this is the person you're counting on. give it a few months, hopefully I'll have something better than "hey I actually tried now but it turned out it was really hard/impossible so nevermind" but i'll definitely have something

I can't believe that back then some of the more talented coders/designers among us would spend days/weeks/months sometimes piecing these skins and other large projects together. Most of the time people just complained as well.
