The banner feature in it's current state, probably not but using the new banner/video system David has in his version of the site could be used for other content other than just a new video. I have an idea how to make it work and will do some mock ups when I get back from work.
It's rough (and goes by fast and doesn't have to go from right to left, this can be changed so don't complain about it for the love of god) but it gets the point across... basically the home page banner would cycle through different featured videos and between them a user created banner would show:

Personally, I think the user-created banners are a good thing for the site and would like to find a way to use them or at do something similar. My idea expands on the existing system by providing much more real estate for people to work with but also utilizes the current design layout. That said, something like this isn't important at this time.
Either way, this is an example of how you can provide feedback and suggestions without actually doing any code.

The site is in such an early stage of development in my opinion, there's no way for any helpful feedback. People see the site as it is and they freak out because there's so much left undone that they start criticizing everything. Big mistake imo.
Well, to be fair, he never asked for feedback, he only posted the link and told us what was working and what is being done in the future.

I started this because I thought the .org could reposition itself as a hub for the AMV community once again. I thought that YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc., while good at hosting videos, were very bad at ensuring permanence of those videos. The .org, with its hosting system and catalog, could help make that happen. Over time people would once again learn that there was one place on the Internet that really took AMVs and their artistic/historical significance seriously, and people would come back here. A community could be built, and planned, using that as a foundation.
I also have a number of user interaction ideas that I wanted to try. Some of them are original theories, but most of them are informed from Jef Raskin's The Humane Interface.
Since February, I have been researching technologies and designs to make this happen. I now think I've got something that can survive e.g. a legal firestorm; if whave people running other .org nodes in other countrit will be possible for all of this AMV data to survive and remain accessible even in the event of total shutdown. That's not something that can be easily done right now: some people have backups of the .org database, but the .org codebase is not designed for that sort of replicated operation.
There's a lot left to do in that regard, and it may not work out quite as well as I want, but I think the foundation is solid.
On top of that foundation there has been quite a bit of discussion and work in implementing those UI ideas, and some of them really seem like they're going to do well in practice.
But now you accuse me of perpetuating a conspiracy to kill this effort?
Go fuck yourself. Your paranoid negativity is toxic and I am sick of it.
