I've not been here long... but I've only just found the simplyscripts.com website where you have a huge database of scripts - published and unpublished. All I'd seen up to that point was the simplyscripts.net discussion forum.

If you're redeveloping the site, what's the relationship between the two sections? Separate, or linked? If the discussion board is a hotbed of script discussion and development, is the script database a place where the fruits of those labours are published?

Perhaps all is clear already - but it was not straightaway clear to me as a new(ish) visitor. Just wondering how those parts fit together.

The Unproduced Scripts section on simplyscripts.com contains scripts that are published on the discussion board here.

That's basically it.

What Richard said, pretty much sums it up.  

The sites are linked with respect to SimplyScripts.com houses the blog and database of script links - links to both produced and unproduced scripts (and radio plays and Scripts studios are posting FYC).   SimplyScripts.net houses just the discussionboard.*

If you submit a script to the unproduced section, it is posted there with a link to a discussion board thread here.  

And, yes.  The site is very confusing as it has grown organically over the past seventeen years.

What are they separate? dot net vs dot com.  A million years ago, simplyscripts.com was housed with a host company that didn't allow for cgi-bin.  The discussion board was cgi-bin based and rather than move the dot com to a cgi-bin based server, I just set up a separate domain to house the discussion board.  


Visit SimplyScripts.com for what is new on the site.

It took me a while to find the .com site as well. This is hardly the only site with its discussion board at a different URL, but it's the only one I've run across where the discussion board seems to be easier to find than the main site.

Maybe put two logos - one for the .com site and one for the .net site - at the top-left of each site?
