Therianthropy

I noticed a lot of my friends here are posting new essays and stuff related to therianthropy on their sites. Hey guys, consider adding them to SO! Some of this stuff is great, and more people should read it. It's great to see other people's opinions about therianthropy and the communities coming to light. Hell, even if you're ranting at me specifically, consider submitting them. I think it could help out a lot for the newbies to see this stuff.

Of course, right now SO is in HTML limbo, but soon I should have up some kind of script where you guys can add your own stuff.

Okay, people with experience

I have a site that's supposed to be a large community resource site that hosts terms and their definitions, as well as a lot of essays and other information. This is about therianthropy by the by, shifters.org specifically.

I originally put it in PHPnuke, mistakeningly thinking the default software would allow users to post their own information (such as terms and essays and such). Nope, apparently it takes modifications to do that, something I never had time to look into.

I managed to get Postnuke working on my website briefly before the webhosts decided to turn on something called 'magic quotes', but that's a whole other story. From what I could tell, people could infact upload their own info. It also had much more administrative control and options. Other than that, it was a PHPnuke clone. I worry about the popularity of CMS's such as this, because they become hacker targets. SO was hacked once already because of a security hole in PHPnuke. Thankfully they didn't do anything.

I've also been thinking about using the same script that Wikipedia uses. Since this site has a lot of terms and essays, I thought maybe the Wiki way is the way to go. But I've never used it, and I'm unsure of how well it would work out.

So anyway, what's your experience for something like this that would be easier on me as an admin, and on our users for getting our "shit straight"?

I don't often post lyrics, but this ... this is how I feel most of the time.

"Boulevard Of Broken Dreams"

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a...

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone...
