You know..., it's quite frustrating to read all your posts. I know you all mean well and I understand everything you guys write, but it's so extremely frustrating. Especially when I'm working really hard to complete the new version, next to my day job. Right now as most of you know, for the technical side, I'm just a one man show. I've explained in some other thread on here why stuff is taking so long, so I'm not gonna do that again. I really am making good progress, but the current version is so old and has a lot of functionality to port over to the new one. It just takes a lot of time. I've considered removing a number of features, but dropped that idea because I know I'll get a lot of shit about that.
I'm so glad I have the group of moderators that help everywhere they can, without them progress would be even worse. Thanks again guys!
So if anyone has skills in software development, marketing, or whatever and is willing to volunteer, I'm all ears
We can use all the help we can get.
Happy with the site the way it is and will surely complain about something when forced to migrate, but I'll stick with iCM. As I said before, I believe the site has a real strength - lists, its core feature - and for that reason I find it invaluable and paired with IMDb, it's got everything I need. Sure, a link on iCM to JustWatch would be helpful, but I'm also used to cutting and pasting so that's not a big deal.
I've tried to volunteer in the past but either you weren't interested, feel I'm not appreciative of your hard work (yes, I do use humor and sarcasm quite a bit around here - but I'll say ask the mods what they think if you have any concerns), or were too busy to acknowledge the offer. I'm still willing to help, but it's not easy to suggest how to be helpful. I keep my promises and deliver on deadline.
My skills in modern-day programming are non-existent, so that's a bust.
I have worked in marketing, or more specifically advertising, both online and in print media. I have a good grasp of the concepts involved, but not knowing what you have in mind, I don't have a way to suggest how I could be of help to you and of service to the iCM community. But please, feel free to contact me via PM here, on iCM, or on Discuss with something a tad more concrete - or have one of the mods assist you with that - and we can take it from there.
I also have real-world experience as a volunteer coordinator. While this isn't something you asked for, I'm offering as it's not something else I've seen pop up elsewhere in the iCM community. You tell me your requirements, I can engage with potential volunteers, collect and organize the information in whatever way is most useful for you. Something like that. Again, PM or have a mod help.
Last, while I haven't worried about Google Analytics for a couple years now, if you need information gleaned from that, maybe I can be of assistance there - though I don't think I could do full scale statistical analysis at this point. PM ... if interested.
