Hey guys,

Is there any interest in developing a website for Outrider Base separate from the RL forums? I know some bases have them. I thought we might be able to draw in more members and events that way. What do you guys think?

I'm all for raising more awareness for the Rebel Legion and Outrider Base in particular. I think a separate website could be benficial.

On the other hand, we do already have the Facebook group and I wonder if a website would actually get more attention than that.

Do we ever get event requests through Facebook, or are most of our activities coming from cross faction events?

If nothing else, we should have a splash page (basic 'about us' and other links) that could redirect people to here for the forum discussion portion.

Mostly shared from the 501st so far. A few who are aware of us.


Next question: does anyone have website building experience? Are you able and willing to create a website? I figure it would be easier to get someone experienced to do it, rather than try to figure it out myself.

The last time I actually worked on a website, I had to manually code the HTML...

I'm not entirely sure how things are done these days.

I'm sure we could figure something out Shawn. Worse case, we plan a day and come over and work on it together. Wink

There are so many website builders out there these days that it is really easy to set up a simple website. We could use a basic template from somewhere like Wix or Weebly. That being said, I can code websites. Nothing fancy, but if you just need a basic splash page with links, that is simple enough.
