That's what I wanted from the start. If the wording is improved then 
I'll be happy (I'd prefer the whole idea to be scrapped, but I will 
compromise on better wording).

thechat: Err... chat? Very informal, not googled if people are paranoid 
about that.
thelist: Q & A on web design, as it is now.
theforum: Discussing evolt.org the site, code, finance whatever.

I really don't think we need more than those three.

If it's PHP/MySQL then I'll take a look now and do some work after my exams.

I have a busy day job too... I'm a full-time student (and yes, it damn 
well is a full-time job before anyone makes the usual wise-cracks about 
us lazing about all day and contributing nothing to society, I *hate* it 
when people say that).

All that needs to be done is create a page and upload it to evolt.org 
saying "these are the people who run/own the servers Big thanks for 
their hard work". I found this after some searching:


Doesn't seem to have been updated for a while though. All it needs is 
spricing up, updating and perhaps each name could link to the member's 
evolt.org profile where applicable.
