hey Proxima (& all)
 +
 +
sorry haven't posted, been busy with various things
 +
 +
just to fill you in, Palaoes com is obviously down but i'm intending on reviving it soon.  It will be reorganised with a different directory tree layout, so it will be easier to add blog posts and so on, as well as accommodate ambiguous or changing phylogenies. 
 +
 +
The only reason i haven't already got it done is because various things have come up, unrelated commitments and so on, been rather busy.
 +
 +
i've noticed wikies are easily wreaked by spam, unless they are set to admin only (i.e. all editors are also admins), tho maybe there are other security options that can address this.
 +
 +
One alternative i'm thinking about is a static website with multible contributers.  So either people can post things to me and i'll upload it, or else they post things directly using ftp and html editors.  The only problem would be with overwriting each others work (if two people were working on the same pagas) and that could be avoided by having a community forum or whatever and messages like "don't do anything with xyz-idae until i've finished updating them".  So it can be made to work, with only minimal hassle.
 +
 +
My idea for a revised Palaeos com site would be that each group has its own page, tho some taxa could still have individual listings for smaller groups or clades regarding which there isn't enough to justify their own page.  So it would be somewhere between Palaeos org wiki and the old Palaeos com in format. Of course we could still have a wiki as well, provided it can be made spam proof.

By the way i am on facebook so anyone who wants can contact me there [[User:M alan kazlev|M alan kazlev]] 04:36, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
