Initial early stages here:

http://beta.strangememories.com

The name will most likely change (being a domain I just had hanging around), but the early building blocks are coming together. I want to get a team together to work on it before I set anything set in stone as I want the site to reflect what we all want it to be rather than just what I think.

The contact form doesn't work yet, so if anyone is interested, just email me through the Forums here

I've done some more work on this now and it's shaping up quite nicely... Does anyone have any thoughts on the site?

Looks nice - works well on Firefox on a Mac.

Are the header photos random ?

Got the Dalek and Chris loads of times, Davros and David once each.

The navigator bar is longer than the photos on the right.

Thanks - corrected the nav bar now. The header photos/quotes are random.

Running a single-topic site can be a real hoot. You def get a much better sense of community. Shame about SF fans being such hard work

A DVDT/TMF-style site with distinct news/review sections + forums should be a winner. Esp. as the site would come without some of the baggage associated w/ similar ventures. So many of these things are run by cliques and what have you.

You dont waste time do you!

Looks good so far.

I have e-mailed a couple of people who do set reports on OG, as if we can get them on board I feel they will be a real assist to the site.

Do you want me to post a link to the site in the OG forum yet (there is a section dedicated to other Who sites), or would you rather wait a bit and get the forum part up and running first?

Let me sort out the domain first and then post tomorrow

I'm quite excited by this one as I've been wanting to do a sci-fi site for a while.

OK - slight change.

I've registered the name 'themedusacascade.com' which I'll be using as a central hub for multiple sites eventually if the DW site takes off.

So the URL will be:

http://doctorwho.themedusacascade.com/

I've added user registrations and comments now. My next big task is to implement the forum.

Anyone else fancy being involved?

Well anyone who just wants to help shape the site is welcome to come in and take part in the initial discussions. Contact me directly and I'll set you up an admin account so you can get involved there.

OG had a tendancy in recent years to descend into flame wars, mainly over new series casting etc. Replacing it would be a big task, but if there's anything I can do, I'd be happy to help.

Hey Colin, if you need any help with anything let me know, I'm sure I can wander the web stealing finding Doctor Who/Sci-Fi stories. It'd be good if the place did not devolve into the Outpost Gallifrey, which is closing down soon, so you might have a chance to push this and make Doctor Who fandom more interesting discussion and less handbags at dawn.

and some are probably going to be mighty ****** off with you, classing it as a spoiler. Even though it does say SPOILERS in the thread title.
