<strong>All I can say is I have not seen the front page of AI in a loooong time becase I know there is nothing new out there.
I like the Mochup idea alot.
Somefresh articles would be a good thing, but a carbon copy of another site would not. (MacRumors) There is nothing at MacRumors for me, but then again. If they had an awesome UBB comunity things might be different around there.
What would cool IMO would be for
AI news to be the first legacy site to break the old Mac mold, and do some reporting on OS 10 UNIX.
Like articles on what developers are sturring up at sorceforge? What are Mac xNix developers working on for us, and what is waiting in the wings. Maybe some Unix Tip's, or what not.
I think you would need much faster servers with a lot more space if you took a leap into the future of the Macintosh platform.
You would get a lot more UBB members also, and would probably have to add a few forums to acomidate.
What ever you do. I've always liked the fact that AI is it's own design much like Apple itself. Don't loose your originalty.
Take all these elements. User Mochups (vote on the mochups that are displayed), Legacy AI Rumors, and inside info - then add the Mac Unix Community news, and you would have an extremely popular site. Not that you don't already.
And that is my input.</strong><hr></blockquote>
We've got a plenty fast server. Dual GHZ, 2 gig ram, all the trimmings.
When the new site comes, we'll freshen up the layouts/etc a bit. I've been working on something....
I'm thinking that it's not going to be so focused on the *nix parts of OS X... however, if someone would like to start writing something about that, by all means... they can go right ahead...
The rules are that there are no rules. It goes without saying that we'll edit the stuff a bit, of course.
This is, all, of course, dependent upon how receptive the MacNN people are to this idea...
seeing as they don't particularly like or care about this place too much, it's possible that they won't give this any attention...
