Hi All

I'm working on the Discography and should get there by over the next week or so (provided I can keep up the momentum Mad ), I've made a stab at the Live History (Thanks to Tony for the post re the "old" forum) but there is big chunks missing - I can't find all the gigs from earlier this year for example - if anyone can help fill in some blanks, it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Pete

I'm 99.9% certain Graeme was referring to the spam robot infiltration, whose post(s) have since been deleted.

boy oh boy.... I was a little sleepy on the CO Forum for a few months. Looks like you guys have really been chatting a lot about this!

Anything I can do to help... I'd love to get this going. I'm definitely down with compiling setlists and that kind of thing. Personally, I love looking back on old set lists and tour histories.

Hi Derek, I feel like I'm chasing you around the site responding to your threads !!

Paul is working on the graphics and a new layout theme ( as well as the forum ), its looking rather classy. I'll leave Paul to reply and maybe show off his handy work - Paul ?

The more people that contribute, the quicker we can get to a site with all things CO collected as a hub for fans to share.

I have to do more work on the discography eg, more on the singles/formats etc. It would be good at some stage if the live history had reviews/setlists attached to certain dates. I've been working on a band Biblio but its hard to really get the jurassic period sorted ie. the very early history, but we'll get there, especially if more fans visit. I notice there are 5500+ fans on the facebook site for example.

Have a look www.allthefriendswecanget.com and see what you think - all ideas/contributions welcome

definitely getting a complete tour history in there would be ace! we could link setlists/photos/stories/reviews from each show. if I have time this weekend, maybe I'll try and get down as much of the dates as I know. sucks... the old CO website used to have a pretty good list of past dates.

The layout looks great! And I dig the title. Looks like you've got most of the old covers to singles, etc. on there already. I know Carey posted most of them on Facebook a few months ago.

Do you think we can put some Radio Sessions on there? I have a few in MP3 format. KCRW from a few years ago... some other stuff. I forget. Will have to check what I have when I get home. (Slacking off at work right now!)

Derek

This is just a skeleton site - just to get the basic info together.

If you click on 2009 Tour dates you will also see a list of historical shows (not quite complete - I was grabbing any info I could from web searches and links that Tony provided) - speaking to Paul we discussed this button as simply ""Live Dates or "On Tour" for example, and all things live will be in there.

Tony posted a list of media/in sessions so I think the idea was to get these recorded and on the site as opposed to links which may fail as time goes on. We'd want to see a bootlegs/download section eventually.

Personally, I'd like to see the site as the #1 place to visit for any info on CO.

Cheers

Pete

ps. the forum will eventually be there !

I've got the forum working, I just need to integrate the layout template so it matches the rest of the website.
The new layout looks like this (many things subject to change), it's on the alt url temporarily while I fiddle with it. www.cameraobscurafanclub.net

But regarding the forum, I have actually found an importer script if we want to move all the posts and accounts from this forum over to the new one, but I'm thinking it might be better if we just start it fresh. Besides I don't have access to the innards of this forumotion account, that's graeme's baby.

EDIT: I just looked at the new layout on my two other monitors (laptop & 4 year old LCD) and the site looks incredibly dark and gloomy. I think it's going to have to brighten up a bit.

My life has been pretty hellish for the past few months and I haven't had any time for side projects like allthefriends, but I promised Pete I'd work on it this week. Or I was planning on promising him. Or something. Things are so weird for me right now I don't even know which emails I've sent or not sent.

I just posted an update on the site itself that says we'll be running by mid-late february. I have to finish a different project which the atfwcg website code is based on. Once that is finished, I can migrate all the stuff you did on wordpress over to the new one, and set up everything the way we actually want it. Should have just wrote my own site code in the first place, I've never had a single success using Wordpress to build a website, don't know why I didn't remember that...
