The UNCANON Fan Site - where next?

Post by Dean Clayton » 08 Mar 2017, 17:43

So as some may have seen, we've been shifting a few things around recently and the next site to be affected will be uncanon.com

but rather than just lifting it onto our new server, I'm thinking its time we did a little refresh, so I'm looking for feedback, ideas, potential assistants /editors.
no crazy idea dismissed - maybe questioned or request for help in implementing, but not dismissed.

All the old content will get migrated across, and that includes re-releasing the old 617 universe ( If i can find the gene game files that as well!)

So think of this thread as an opportunity for a wish list of stuff for the site!

Sounds great! This is interesting timing, as I've been mulling over returning to my Knights of Greymalkin series and a revamp to Uncanon would help motivate me.

As a contributor to UXN, forum admin and former fan fiction writer to uncanon I'd be happy to help with running the page.

Its been a while since visiting the page. Key would be making sure the various sections (617 etc) are easy to locate and navigate.

I'd be more than happy to help out with running the site too if needed :)

Easy navigation is definitely one of the key aspects.

Maybe an issue spotlight feature would be good? Like once a month, or once every three months a previously released issue would be spotlighted, maybe with a brief writeup from whoever's running UnCanon about the issue?

thanks for the comments and interest in helping :)

Is it fair to say that at the moment the navigation is a bit rubbish? and maybe we should switch to something a little "standard" like when it was the house of ideas or on UXN way back when?

I've been trying to get back to writing for Uncanon for awhile now. I've been thinking about it a lot lately and I want to rebuild my old universe. As far as site design goes, I would be interested in seeing the front page be more formatted like a list. I did actually like the format of UXN and THOI. If people want to start writing again I can't promise that I'd be 100% focused on the site cause of work but I'll do my best to see if new series get posted.

Been away from the site for over a year now (crazy life stuff) and saw this topic. I've had thoughts about Uncanon for awhile recently, missing writing some of the stuff I did over the years. Any further word about reviving the site in some way behind the scenes? Just curious.

Nothing from my side is officially locked in, it's taken a bit of a back seat due to other site related projects however if there is interest in the community to start creating content ( in any format) I'm more than happy to organize and do some site building work to facilitate it

I know I would be interested myself in Uncanon content, as I have a series I've been working on from before I came back to the forums that I was inspired to write for Uncanon or a similar style of setting. I'd be down to help in any way if it's needed to try and get Uncanon back on its feet.

Same. I've been meaning to get back into the swing of writing, and I'll also happily help out in other capacities if I'm able.
