Call for Coders/Helpers for Ferrox Project

Damaratus

Care to join me in my lab?
Attention users of Fur Affinity!

There is much work being done on The Ferrox Project, and I suppose you're wondering what exactly it is. Ferrox is a project designed to revamp Fur Affinity, integrating ideas provided by both the community and the current staff. It is meant to be a new and improved face for Fur Affinity, but it involves a good deal of coding as well as additional support.

As of this point, some work is done but we're looking to pick up the pace. As of this point you may have noticed that there have been two new coders added to the staff: Verix and Eevee. Please give them a welcome to the crew.

But wait! That's not the only purpose of this announcement, which you can clearly gather from the title.

We are looking for more folks to help out with the production and eventual release of Ferrox.

We are looking for all types of people: coders, PR, Q&A, beta testers, etc.

If you would like to give some time to FA and help out with the new project, send a note or PM over to crypto expressing your desire to be part of the team as well as listing what you would like to do, and the skills you can bring to the table; even minimal experience is fine.

Bear in mind that not everyone who applies will be brought on, but this is a great opportunity to help out the advancement of the site. :)

Sending now! :) Doubt my minimal code monkey skills will be of any use, but I would still love to help further this site in any way possible.

I'm no code monkey either, I just know the basics of a few languages. Enough to do a few tasks here or there.

I'm still here, willing and able to help out with both coding and QA work. I'd at least like to do some QA/beta-test stuff and help get some of that ironed-out. I don't know the status of the FurBuy integration, but I could help oversee that goes smoothly in a very direct way since I'm the software admin and lead coder on FurBuy.

The Ferrox Project is basically a new face (and code) for Fur Affinity. It will be integrating a vast number of suggestions from the user base as well as ideas from the current staff.

It is a rather large endeavor, but the end result should be something positive for the community as a whole.
 
i would love to help bata test but tell me what is Ferrox

I'm experienced at coding PHP, mySQL, html, flash, etc. but I volunteered before to no avail.

Last I checked, Ferrox is being done in Python, using the Pylons and SQLAlchemy frameworks.

(This may have changed since the last time I checked, which was before they +k'd #furaffinity-dev. But I'd be surprised.)

oh goddess yes, anything but PHP. I could have helped had it been rewritten in Ruby instead, but I'm still glad it's python.

Thank you for all of the responses. I am currently inundated by just the vast number of people who have responded.

Just to add a couple of notes, net-cat is right and we are using Pylons and SQLAlchemy for the new version. Any sort of Python experience will be looked upon much higher than anything else. :)

I'm going to wait a few more days before responding to everyone so I can just respond to everyone in one long fell swoop so please don't mind if you don't get a response. All of them have been received and will be processed in order.

if this hasn't been stated already do you think you could try to get rid of the double posting thing that furaffinity has a problem with.

but its in really good shape anyway ^_^
