Before attending DevBootcamp I explored the PHP based Drupal CMS. IdolOrder.com is a fan opinion site for The Voice and American Idol.
It currently has over a thousand data-filled pages. My goal was to create a far more interactive site to share impressions and memories than the existing hodge-podge of forums, hard to access videos, and lost and forgotten discussions from the time of airing years ago.
The site will remain in it’s current concept mode. Unfortunately the country isn’t obsessing over the amateur performers anymore, the networks have gotten stricter with IP, and there is too much data-entry involved to maintain it as a hobby-only site.
In my opinion, TV networks should really create sites like this to profit from their existing libraries.
Quick to load and simple to navigate, the encyclopedic content would add a sense of historical relevance to their TV properties.
