Work to be done on the website before the official launch and video announcement.
I want to finish some of the items below before the official launch as well, but I am pretty constrained on time working on the back-end.
If anyone would like to help out with planning these features, writing categories, and descriptions, or in any other way, it'd be greatly appreciated.
This list is what I've put together so far, I'm probably missing some things, and some of the ideas need further refining. So if you see something that I forgot or something you think should be here, please let me know. I'm open to any suggestions, recommendations, or ideas.
I have the homepage set to display the most recent topics with new activity. Is there a more functional/better use for the homepage?
I've been thinking of building a "research dashboard" page of sorts. I know we all do quite a bit of research into all kinds of subjects. It would be nice to have a central place to create research projects, store information, links, pictures, pdfs, view and take notes, and even make tools to help the community with researching.
I've still in the planning phase of this project, but have started to consider the following;
What information do you use when researching a subject?
How can this information be saved and then presented in a way that would be useful(topics, posts, database entries, links, notes, file/picture uploads)?
What tools would help in general research/study?
I'd to know what everyone thinks about this idea, would it be useful and should I build it? If you like the idea, what would you like to see in your research dashboard?
Health, Food, Nutrition.
I'd love to build a healthy living/eating section if someone wanted to take the lead on designing what that section should look like and how it should be structured. I could put it all together.
We'd need to figure out what pages or databases we want, Food, Recipes, Keto Tracker, Home Remedies, Medicinal Plants and Mushrooms, etc. We'd need custom fields for the databases. For example, for the Medicinal Plants database, do we need fields for the common name, botanical name, description, medicinal uses, warnings, recommended dose, etc.
We can have record feeds from databases and forums as well, so if we had a Healthy Living page, we could have feeds on that page from the recipe database, the medicinal plants, a private forum, a links database, and so on. Categories and descriptions would need to be written, and we could add anything else that might be useful to the Body of Christ as well.
Same as above.
Categories and subcategories need to be created for things the body of Christ might need, KJV Bibles, Tracts, Public domain documents (Random References, the Wescott and Hort letters, for example), general PDF's, and so on.
I think once the categories are in place, the downloads section will become quite useful.
It'd be nice to sort Bryan's videos by subject matter or create playlists of some sort. We could also tag videos(really anything), and then create feeds based on tags throughout the website. Similar content could be shown on topics, the research dashboard, alongside study pages, etc.
This will be a big time-consuming project in itself, but I think it would help the ministry and have untold rewards for the body of Christ.
If someone or multiple people were interested in taking up this project for the body of Christ, I could make a group with permissions to edit all tags.
User Submitted Videos
We just need some categories and descriptions written here.
Bible Study Tools
Should we have categories(what categories?) or list everything on one page?
Bible versions database
What categories or custom field would this have? Do we list authors, translators, release dates, publishers, missing verses, corrupted doctrine?
Biblical Places database
We could use a database to hold the Latitude and Longitude of significant places in the Bible and then feed it into a mapping application to be able to see at a glance where certain places in scripture took place.
A tract creator would be nice; I'm not sure how to make this yet, but it's on the wishlist.
How to Witness - Database
Say to the Mormon's or about the bible version issues. I'm sure we could compile some good information over time, and It'd be nice to have that knowledge base online to refer people to if you're short on time. If any has any ideas on how we could set this up, I'm all ears.
Finding good electronic sources for the KJV bible, in any format, PDF, Text, SQL, Word, Bryan has talked before about the altered versions floating around. It would be nice to have a place where anyone could download a good copy.
Pew, that took forever to write. Thoughts, Feelings, Ideas, Suggestions?
