Raiding Research Online
A fellow World of Warcraft player asked me to set her up a blog and forum for her research into the MMO raiding culture for her PhD at Durham University. This was actually a really easy task, but I also learned more about WordPress and adding widgets and editing the settings so the blog was exaclty as she wanted it.

The forum I used was PHPBB, as it is very popular and suited her needs perfectly. With no prior experience setting up a forum, it was quite a challenge to get all the user/registration permissions correct to avoid any spammers registering.

As with all the sites i built/set-up, I used Google Analytics tracking. It produces lovely charts and graphs which the site owner can also have access to. In this case my client was particularly impressed with the data output, and said it would be very useful to her PhD.
