Creating A Site, Looking For Help!

Postby ʀᴜʙɪɪ ✧⋆. » Mon Sep 11, 2017 3:14 am

Hey there! I'm looking to make a website like ChickenSmoothie but I have no idea where to start.
I would prefer to start building my website from scratch, without using a website builder like the one Google has (or Wix, to be fair.) I would also like people to be able to sign up for it, and have growable AND customizable pets.
Can anyone give me some pointers, or would anyone like to help? Feel free to PM me for any reason, as well!
I'm also looking for names, as well :lol:
(hope you guys didn't mid the poll at the top, it really helps me though)

I can probably help get it started. I was making my own website back in the day so I know some things. My art is decent enough to design a few outcomes but not a full species. My suggestion is to learn AS MUCH of ALL parts of making a website as you can. that way if your coder, artist, lore writer etc... leaves or disappears you can carry it for a while.

things to think about for the opening of the site:

Will I have lore?:
yes: need writers
No: 1 less thing to worry about, but also less intrigue.

Will I have a world map?:
Yes: Need World lore writers and geography artists.
no: less RPing factor and less attraction apart from the forum

Will I have currency?:
Yes: How many types and is it only bought or can it be earned?
no: This rules out a store and one way to support the website.

What can I afford to put into this from the get go and what should I add later on?:
Domain (without an extension): $10-20

( i forgot what else I was gonna put on the expenses...)

When do I want the beta opening?:
Date:
when do I want the Grand opening?:
Date:

How long each week will I need to work to open it by those dates?:
Time plan:

Will I have Admin partners?:
Yes: Yay if you can't get on for whatever reason you should have someone to cover for you.
No:

Other things you wanted to add?:


If you mail me or post the info I can give more detailed suggestions!

Hello! I wanted to post here and help give a realistic perspective on what you could do to get started. Around when I first joined this site (I was much younger), I wanted to create my own pet site. This, however, isn't something that's very easy to do. I underestimated the challenge and I think a lot of other young people do as well.

If you google Mysidia Adoptables you will find the website. It is a free script used for adoptable sites. Most of the adoptables sites I've seen are run by adults because of what all goes into it and the amount of orginization required. Of course, it's likely possible for anyone to start something like this, but it requires dedication.

From what I've seen, the creator often hires other people to work for them, such as: coders/programmers, artists, writers, moderators/admins, etc.

If you're a minor I would suggest to plan out your site in detail now, so that when you're older you can find people willing to work with you, and can put your money towards hiring help. The other option would be to learn how to code (if you don't know already) and completely build your own website. It seems unlikely for one person to be able to code, draw and moderate as well as do everything else that keeps the site running, but if you put a lot of effort in, you could put a little of your knowledge in each area.

I think that if this is really important to you, you should continue to plan for it and do all that you can to make progress. You can make your goals into reality with a lot of hard work and some help from others.

Say you're just starting out and you want to learn about art. You could go to YouTube, DeviantART, Tumblr, etc, and read up on it as well as look at helpful tutorials. If you want to learn coding, YouTube is also helpful and there's W3Schools or other informational sites that could be of use to you. This might seem a bit overwhelming, and if you're looking for something easier to start off with, I'd recommend gaining experience from places like ChickenSmoothie. Here you could create "adoptables" and make your own "original species" in the oekaki (art) section of the site. You could go to the roleplay section, the writing section, etc. All of these could be helpful!

tldr: find a team of people skilled in programming, writing and drawing or work on improving those skills yourself. If that's too much, start on a smaller scale like maybe becoming more involved here on CS!

Hope that was somewhat helpful. Have a lovely day! <3
