Afternoon guys, this is a place for me to post plans for the IGAIR ISS site. For those of you uninitiated to the idea, the ISS stands for "Intergalactic Staffing Solutions". It's intended to be our new community hub here at IGAIR, and will consist of several sub-applications:
OrgHQ
OrgHQ is intended to provide the same services that Enjin makes available to us now - a place to coordinate events and forums/discussions. OrgHQ forms the foundation to all the additional sub-applications that will be in IGAIR ISS.

OrgHQ Provides:
  • Theming / Look & Feel
  • Landing ("Home") Page
  • "About Us" Page
  • Login and Registration services
  • User Account data object
  • User Management
  • User Management API (for other modules/sub-applications)
  • User Profiles
  • Calendar Events
  • Calendar API (for other modules/sub-applications)
  • Forums
  • Email and Announcement Services (Public Address)
  • Email and Announcement Services API (for other modules/sub-applications)
  • "Administration" page
  • "Administration" page API (for other modules/sub-applications)

Shipyard
Shipyard is intended to allow users to specify ships that they own. It will also allow them to allow access to the ships for IGAIR use. Shipyard will display statuses for all IGAIR (or user-provided) ships in use, such as if they are on a mission, being repaired, or on standby.

Shipyard Provides:
  • Ship data object
  • "Shipyard" page
  • "My Fleet" page
  • Ship Management
  • Ship Management API (for other modules/sub-applications)
  • Ship Statistics

Accounting
Accounting manages finances and funds - IE, it provides the groundwork for "charge codes" that Operations Teams and members can pull from. Payments and/or reimbursements are requested through this system, then fulfilled in-game. The core of this is the financial administration page - a page provided to administrators of the site or people with the "accountant" role. Accounting also tracks and identifies potential fraud / embezzlement. Funds paid to IGAIR members are tracked in this module until the user requests the funds be dispensed to their in-game account.

Accounting Provides:
  • "My funds" page.
  • Salary / Payment API (for other modules/sub-applications)
  • Charge Code data object
  • Charge Code + Salary/Payment management
  • Financial Statistics

TODO: Write about "Warehouse" and "Job Board"

Home page (landing page) display

Logged in (IGAIR Member): Will consist of a series of "cards" displaying information to the user. Cards will consist of a single piece of event or piece of info and provide a link to "additional information" (which is the main page that the information exists on).

Normal information cards will only span 1/2 of the available space horizontally, allowing two cards to be displayed side-by-side. Announcements (from site administration) will span the full width of the space, and always appear at the top. The page will not have "void space" fill, but will have a visible separator for when you reach the end of the list of cards.

A user who has no cards to display will be given a full-width card that directs them to areas where they can engage with the site.

Logged out:
Will display an "about us" landing page and will allow the user to access publicly visible forum posts.

Logged in (as Visitor):
Will display the "about us" page visible to logged out members, but will make visible additional destinations on the navbar.


  • I don't necessarily like how we are handling Visitor users. Perhaps something more engaging, like a customer portal or something?
  • Could the option to permanently mute certain cards be useful? (Mute as in prevent them from appearing / immediately dismiss them).

I need an Intergalactic Airlines favicon, something 16x16. Filetype MUST be ".ico". Our normal logo is too complex for such a small image - so if someone can make a simplified version that would be AWESOME.
