Design by committee anyone?
We (wmass.indymedia.org) want to move to Drupal and are looking for a good place to host it. Can you tell me where you are hosting this site?
Also, would like to make contact with someone from this site to communicate about Drupal implementation.
We are hosted (along with a number of other IMCs) by Axxs, a friendly worker's collective hosting company based in rural Victoria, Australia. If you take a look at their website, axxs.org, you can contact them from there.
I see wmass.i.o is currently running Dada. Another IMC that I'm involved with, Aotearoa Indymedia (http://www.indymedia.org.nz) is also moving from Dada to Drupal in the near future. We've been investigating how to transfer everything from Dada to Drupal - apparently there is another IMC (can't remember which one off the top of my head) that plans to have the code finished to do that by April.
Sorry for the delay in reply, I only just noticed your post.

good to see you've got it going on with drupal, it's some nice software. we use it over at risingtide.org.au too.
you need to edit the CSS for your theme much more thouroghly. all the writing and comments are still in the standard colours/fonts, and it clashes badly with the rest of the theme. also, the yellow-on-light-grey really doesn't work, make the yellow darker.
you need to allow the "recent posts" link in the navigation block by going to http://www.climateimc.org.au/admin/menu and clicking enable.
I'd suggest doing a link swap with risingtide newcastle (us), risingtide UK, save happy valley (/NZ risingtide), and the new Risingtide North America, but I wouldn't want to suggest that climateIMC is inherently biased towards saving the planet :D
we'll probably link to you sooner or later.
what about an RSS aggregator feed from realclimate.org? that's a great site.
allowing people to post comments without previewing them makes for a quicker site. allowing people to edit their own mistakes (when logged in) removes any problem wiht fuckups.
you're doing a great job so far, keep it up.
Hi sophie :)

Moderate your website so you don't pick up all the comments from spam-- the spam/way off topic spew distract from your main message which is so important. It also decreases credibility -- of the site, and the message.
....but is it possible to rate down (or up!) the comments / articles. We use it at scotland.indymedia.org (though it's a different system) and it helps keep the pages free of poker, porn and pills..
It'd also be good if it was more clear how to contact the site admins.
Just a suggestion, turn on friendly url´s and install the module called Auto Path - it will automatically turn each page into the name of the node, rather than /?q=node/2 etc.
i'm not seeing anyway to post graphics. is that doable?
Now what friends?
