Well, it's about time I solicit a little volunteer help. If you'd like to see the new stuff, head on over to http://www.campbartlett.com and scope things out.
You have to sign up before you can do much. Unfortunately the website has a different signin than the forums. I haven't found a way around that yet and will probably have to do a little coding. We'll see. Let me know what you think.
2008-07-20 - Updates
I'm a little behind schedule, but things are coming along. Here's what we have:
- A domain name has been procured. I bet you can guess what it is. I've thrown a bogus page up for now, until things are launched.
- The forums are up, and most categories are created. This will be our story and experience repository. I have not applied the site theme to it. I have personally tested the forums and beta testing will now begin on the forums. Each forum member gets a little inter-forum e-mail. I'm looking for staff members (past or present) to be moderators in their area. Hit me up at moondog_13 at hotmail dot com if you wish to help.
- Wouldn't videos be cool? Saw some on youtube the other day. When things are rockin' and rollin' we'll see if the owners wouldn't mind us linking to them (or embedding them) in the site.
- The main site software has been chosen, but no content is in place and the theme isn't customized yet. I have some basic templates for the different areas of camp. I'm looking for people to help contribute content to those areas, preferably from staff members (past or present) as they have become very familiar with the areas of camp over the summer. Talk to me at moondog_13 at hotmail dot com if you wish to help. Beta testing should commence within a week.
- Picture gallery is almost up. I'm not sure how it will tie into forums or main site, however it'll be a great collecting place for, well, pictures. Testing should commence within a week, maybe two. This may induce more load on my little server than I'd like so we're going to play it by ear.
- E-mail accounts are a possibility. Probably only for site staff and moderators, possibly later for others. Let me know what you think.
Looks like the new launching date for the site will be 2008-08-20. It's going to be cool.
2008-04-25 Important news
Plans are underway for a new Bartlett site. This one will actually rock and will be focused around the Bartlett community. There are plans for picture galleries and blogs, the whole site will be re-designed. It will be for staff and scouts alike to share their experiences.

Here's the time line:

2008-06-20: Beta site launched. The site look and feel will be fairly finished. Core site functionality will exist and refinements will commence. A limited number of testers will be allowed to sign up and help flush out any last bugs.
2008-07-20: The complete site will be launched and the public will be invited to participate. This will be a fantastic place to collect photos and stories from all of our experiences at this wonderful camp.
