Thanks! What do you mean by reinventing the wheel?Alone with a great roadmap and design doc: doable, as long as you dont try reinventing the wheel and fire
It's nicer to have responsibilitites separated, such as someone handling the visual part (visual feel, theme, appearance...), another or 2 the actual coding...
Picking among the most capable and respected among your contacts or peers generally would be acceptably appropriate, given reasons to trust such 'outsiders'.
Gaming website with large-scale contents is pretty general imo, you need more details?
Based on the large-scale contents logic, actually, all websites have immeasurable ammount of data and contents... so let's just say... as soon as you start a website, it already has large-scale contents.
Yup! Somethin like thisThen Joomla is enough. I think what you are looking for is a combo blog/forums style website, not a big portal or anything.
ahahah! What part(s) of the website would you make into SWF?*totally a Flash developer*
...I would so turn that website into one HTML with a bunch of SWFs because... it's more fun that way.
But anyway, that aside, it's just as it is. Joomla should be more than enough for that.
