Well I was working with a friend on a project and frankly I just don't have the time to help him complete this. I am most likely going to post something here about it soon as he asked me to atleast help him find a replacement.

It is a simple data driven website - Nothing overly complex.

I will get the details.

Hey well I have three ideas of what I wanted to do. I have started two but not had much motivation to carry them on as I wasn't sure if they would be good that I should carry them on. But here are my ideas.
1 - A video tutorial site. Its not original but thought it could be fun.
2 - An online web magazine "webzine" I thought this would be good I have a site created "template" with some working code. But this would need other people to work with me on it mainly the content for the magazine.
3 - An online web festival "Webfest", this would be a big project and would need a lot of security on it. But what I was thinking of allowing people to have some space (I give them two pages) and they can create their area like you could do at a festival and say if you are a bigger company you can pay for more space. You would also have your own link kinda thing so www.webfest.eu/dic would take you to the dream in code space. But there will also be other things that would also be at a festival. I thought this would be good because a lot of people can't get to web festivals and with this you could access it anywhere with an internet connection.

So if anyone likes any of these ideas I would like people to join me on these and make a mark on the internet.

I like #2. And not the moderator type in that way because I am not gay.

Well I am working on a EBook - part of the reason I pawned the other project off, but I would be happy to contribute some articles and such until I get some more free time on my hands. :)

That would be cool i'm working on it at the moment. Going to create an admin section with a login. It basically going to be a magazine about web but will have other articles about other things computer related. My friend will be having his blog as part of it so his section will be his blog posts. Hopefully other people will join this and if we can get lots of readers that would be brilliant.

The second and third ideas sound interesting, I'd like to help if I can.

Question is, what is the webzine about?

Also, I've never heard of a Web Festival before, so I am not sure if I could get involved other than programming, etc. (the leg work)

First webzine is a mix of web and magazine. It will be a magazine with articles about the web and other computer realted stuff.

The web festival I thought would be good since really there doesn't seem to be an all online festival and at the moment it would pretty much be all leg work as users will give the main content. I'm hoping to get a prototype going but need a good design for it.

Anyone that works on these projects with me should know that I don't have money so any money that is made from ads or something will go to the people that have worked on it.

Yea, kinda guessed that :)
Ok... I can do computer things... what about games? Programming Languages? Or is it Computers in general (soft/hard ware, uses, updates, etc.)?

Are you talking about a Web Festival as in an Open Day?
Basically, members sign up and post content about their company, projects, etc.?

Because that sounds interesting :)
And I like the idea of being involved with something like that :)
