The Economic Populist will be upgraded. It's quite a massive job but it needs to be done.
Right now I can tell you the upgraded site will be based on Drupal and many of the site features which are custom to The Economic Populist will be ported.
With that, I am asking for a wish list from users.
What kind of features do you want? They can be in your imagination to things you might want from other sites.
I'll read all requests.
Here is the first example. We can use scribd to embed into web pages any spreadsheet, power point presentations.
We can also use Google API to integrate any features desired from Google.
I can also embed the use of LaTex. LaTex is a document formatting language, designed specifically for advanced mathematical formula presentations.
What you can assume is that the current layout, editing features, promotion/demotion system, etc. will be ported, the WYSIWYG will be improved, upgraded.
The comment tracker will be ported.
Also, I encourage thinking outside the box. We are a unique space and do not have to model what other community blogs do, although cross posting portability is a critical feature to maintain.
On the current site, I am aware of some minor issues but instead of chasing these down, I want to move onto the complete upgrade and invest the time in that. No point in fixing minor issues when the entire site will change.
