Ah, planning on giving MUFON a run for its money, eh?Wow, very cool, my web skills are pretty humble as you no doubt have seen on my crappy littler website.
Looks like a good resource. I would still like to try and finish that UFO reporting website I started. Got stuck on how to approach a live database?
Love this lol Only in America
US Supreme Court hands victory to blind man who sued Domino’s over site accessibility
TTSA is either developing or already has an app similar to wut you are working on: SCOUTI sort of got it working, I got a developers license from google and was able to manually on a dummy website hanging off my real one get little UFO Icons at whatever lat and long I wanted. Worked nice. But the next step is to get a web based database and a secure interface so people can pinpoint a sighting, with basic data etc. Once it was vetted for spam it gets uploaded to the main website out of holding.
The idea was to have an opt in mailing list. So I would tag certain areas of interest against an email address. If someone uploads a sighting in my areas of interest I get an email as soon as they hit save. Notifications in subject heading only to reduce virus risk. Then the person checks the website to see where the ufo is.
I can do the tecky stuff, but have never done anything in php or that accesses a database online.
Sooo I put it on hold :)
Yeah I would, but a bit stuck with the php database but. I could do it if I tried.No! Yours might end-up being more popular and successful. Go forward with it!
