    GameOgre.com is looking for aspiring game developers to help build a full online game:). This game will have its own site and own domain. If you are interested in helping with this project, you may post your interest here.

    More details such as the domain etc will be announced later.

    OgreWars.com is a possible candidate for this.

    I already have pages of php code ready for ogre wars, but they haven't been debugged yet. One can always make more changes to it and I've read that there were more suggestions.

    Might I suggest to make the code publicly available in text format for those who want to join the community project and who are willing to contribute?

    That would be pretty cool Shugo.
    Maybe that would be a good use for the wiki?
    (Code blocks are your friend! I think we have special HTML/PHP blocks too...)
    PHP:
    <?php
    Echo "Hello World! I hate you all!";
    ?>
    EDIT: Yup we do. A forum thread or something with the PHP blocks (so it's color coded all nice) would be pretty cool. It'd help both:
    a.) People who want to contribute.
    and b.) People who want to learn PHP and see the how the development process works.

    It'd be a really cool thing to make it into a whole open process :)

    Using the wiki for this project would be an awesome idea!

    Hmmm, not sure about showing the code publicly, but the ones who are interested in contributing to the project will be able to see it.

    We are open to suggestions for the Wiki.

    It should be open during beta and those who contribute during beta can still do it once it comes out of beta.

    Sorry, I've been on holiday for 3 weeks. I would like to help out if there are small tasks that are needed to be done. Also, I have done programming as well ;)

    I think hosting the code somewhere in this forum could be a good idea, as this forum seems to have become the centre of everything to do with Gameogre. The wiki could be a good idea, though it'll have to be write-protected except to developers.

    First though, we should get a concept for the game together. If it's an online game, it could be single-player or multiplayer, but since it's online, multiplayer seems to be the preferred option here. However, what kind of genre would be appropriate for an online ogre game?

    An Ogre MMO at some point would be great:). However, we probably should start small and build from there.
