Re: can xoops compete with joomla?
you are right in many ways.. altho there is actually a news team, it's pretty inactive.. that's my fault though, at the moment there's only 2/3 members in the team (me, davidl2 & phppp) but as you know us, we are rather busy with lots of other things and projects too. both me and david were very ill over the summer unfortunately (i still go thru stages of it now and tests at hospital), and had other commitments that needed doing (ie, to bring some much needed cash to my bank balance) and as happened with illness i never quite got back into the swing of the news part. it kept getting pushed down the priority list unfortunately. not purposely i might add..
we have asked a few times for people to join the team to write articles and get to grips with things.. but nobody applied and it's not exactly an easy job like we thought it would be.. we have some great ideas on what to do with the team, but lack the members and the necessary time to do it with just the 3 of us.
So if anybody wants to step up and join the news team and is willing to put some time into it then by all means you are very welcome indeed, the more people the better.. ideally as alitan mentioned about around 15-20 people would be great :) i don't think 15 people will step up for the job.. but those who are interested please apply :)
A Christmas WOX is definitely on the cards, that I promise you (or you can have my address and come and kick my ass)
with regards to the site design, i can't say anything regarding that..
