Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Can someone tell me what they think of my new project?

    Can someone tell me what they think of my new project?

    Ok. I have an idea for a project:
    Omni will be a sort of universal profile. There will two Omni 'products':

    The first, OmniProfile, will be a MySpace/FaceBook-esque profile page. It will contain the following:
    • Picture/Avatar
    • Profile Content/About Me
    • Nickname
    • Links To Other Profiles (For example, a link to the person's MySpace)
    • Notifications (For example, a new message notification on MySpace, new article on Google Reader, etc.
    • CSS Customizable
    • Details + Contact Info
    The second, OmniCard will be a small summary of what is on the OmniProfile, in image form so that it is easily embedded in signatures, etc. Sort of like an internet business card.
    • Picture
    • One sentence "About Me"
    • Nickname
    • Links To Other Services
    • Three Recent Notifications
    • Some Details (Age, gender, real name)
    My goals when developing Omni are as follows:
    • Make Use of XML
    • Use CSS to structure the layout
    • Use Javascript
    • Keep the markup clean and separated from the code
    So...questions? Comments? Think it's a good idea? Think it's stupid? Are my goals dumb?

    too late!

    looks like somebody is already doing this: http://www.omniprofile.com

    plus competing against myspace and facebook will probably be difficult.
