What can we do to help you? Rado, I spent a huge amount of time in December and January trying to explain this to you. I'm sorry I failed to be able to communicate it, but I really don't have the patience to try again. I'll make it as simple as possible. What we're up to? We're working on the website. Websites are not about one kind of content. Wikis and static HTML or dynamic PHP are not mutually exclusive. Wikis are good for some things and bad at others. I attempt to use the best tool for the job. For example, a wiki would likely be good for documentation. It would be bad for anything containing a link exchange unless the page had limited edit permissions. A wiki takes a lot of admin overhead, which is why we don't have one for marketing purposes yet, but do have one for development. At the moment, our priorities are to merge playnetrek.org into www.netrek.org without it negatively impacting our search engine rankings or link exchange traffic. This should have the net effect of increasing search engine ranking by centralizing traffic and links to us. It will also free up some resources by having to maintain only one site instead of two. After that, we'd like to do a big advertising push and figure out ways to market the game. There's a lot of documentation still to write or revise. I've repeatedly stated that help on this is welcome.
