I make SFZero.

Got a question? Find a bug? Dig up a (p)retired task you'd like to have approved? Message me, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Busily preparing for a collaborative production Lara Black and I are working that's "due" in September. Since she and I met through SFZero, our little game will (arguably) deserve some credit for creating a life!

Great title.

Re: "Why is this task already retired?", an important piece of the "tasks go live on a schedule" whatnot didn't make it over from the old server when it died.

- swm, now married to bogushorse. We met online on SFZero and in person at a pie fight, but didn't really hit it off until a party.

Just to toss my $.02 in here, used to run off of a crude custom CMS that let other-city Journey organizers post info about their games. It was kinda wonky, though, and it forced everyone into the same layout and structure. We moved off of that when Sam and Ian put together the new style.

Since then, I've thought through schemes for having all journeys under one roof, and I'm not sure it's worth it. It'd be great for the game in general, but I don't think it would help the individual cities much (e.g. people going to find out about DC probably won't jet out to LA). It would probably mean at least one extra click for, say, LA people to go from the general-Journey front page to info about the LA run in particular, and everyone would have to have roughly the same look.

A happy medium might be a way for other people to add the basic details for their event to the upcoming list on, maybe with some kind of schedule widget that people could put on their city's site. I do think hosting an organizer wiki and some common resources (a link to the font, the silhouettes, Dax's painting, etc, etc) would be great additions to the current main site, though.
