Oh my gosh! What have you done?!

<-- Please Bump!

Hi everybody,

http://www.ronpaulpatriotnation.com

What have you done for the Ron Paul campaign?!

Did you make a huge sign? Did you cover your car in bumper stickers? Did you spend hours canvasing? Did you donate to the campaign again and again?

I'm just finished with my new Ron Paul supporter website that is designed to show off all you have done and I really need some participation and some feedback!

OK, so here was my logic: What is Ron Paul's greatest campaign strength?

Money? (Nope, that's Romney)
Insider Connections? (Nope, that's Gingrich)
Establishment Preference? (Nope, that's Santorum)

Of course....it's the people! It's his supporters. So, I've been thinking of more ways to capitalize on that. Ron Paul supporters are easily 10-20 times more enthusiastic and passionate about their candidate than any other group.

So, I figured what we needed to do is to collect and harness the energy and excitement that comes from the grassroots. So many people do great things and post links to photos of them on sites like this, but they go by fast and get lost. I made a home for them!

http://www.ronpaulpatriotnation.com

The purpose is not to congratulate ourselves, but to inspire others and show what a REAL Ron Paul supporter does to get the word out. We need to grow our base. This is best done by turning passive supporters into active supporters. This shows them how it's done.

The idea is to not let enthusiasm die. Take snapshots of your efforts and share them. Inspire other people by what you've done. I was inspired to make this website by a lot of you out there, so I'm returning the favor.

Note, this is not a discussion or event planning site. I have no intention of diverting traffic from Daily Paul, RonPaulForms, RonPaulCountry,or anything else. I have a lot of respect for those resources and I really believe this is complementary to them and something that's been lacking to galvanize support even further.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Well, please let me know what you think. Even if it's negative.

Note, I have a few real entries now, but the majority are images taken from the internet and are marked as examples. Please feel free to start filling it up with real supporter action so I can remove the examples. I can't wait to remove the examples...

Thanks, and have fun!

PS: I'd appreciate a comment and/or bump if you are so inclined. I've been staring at this myself for weeks on end and I'd like to get the most eyes on it as possible. I have very little feedback so far... Thanks!

Posted two pics!

FYI: each time I tried to post, it warned me that I failed the CAPTCHA, then I did it again and it works. I think it's resetting the CAPTCHA when you load a picture.

CAPTCHA session reuse attack detected.

Yeah, it seems like uploading the photo actually makes captcha think it's already processed once. Ugh. I did't write these modules. Guess I have to go digging. Thanks for the head's up.

Hey RedDot, got your email, sorry it took so long to get back. I'm heading over to your site again to see if I can post some pics as a "real" user! :)

Nice!

Keep the fires spreading until the country has tallied.

Love your efforts.

Late Night Bump

This looks real nice, I like the map on the front page. The only problem I see is that most the pics are examples (but I guess thats why your posting this here). Very nice job.

Keep it simple and work out all the bugs, ask users for feedback and consider polishing up the design (omg bevel :) )

Don't put more bread in your mouth than you can chew, there is always time to perform upgrades in the future.

Run the site thru the http://www.w3.org/ validators and correct all errors.

Clicked on the Contact link.. then on the "contact form" link (strange why I didn't go there with the first click..)

on this page http://www.ronpaulpatriotnation.com/?q=contact-admin

Make the form available on the second level of the site.

Users should click on Contact on the top menu and get the form.. make sure you use some sort of captcha ( http://www.captcha.net/ ) you will avoid some spam.

Yes

Spam is a big problem.

Don't limit your choice by using the one I provided, there are many others that require a math response etc..

There are always ways around the captcha's but at least you will eliminate most of the spam.

Great Post! But PLEASE stay after the vote and become a delegate

This is all important. Stay after the straw poll and become a delegate. It isn't hard at all. But we gotta do it

Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

The "Buy Super Brochures" link on the first page is still messed up in firefox..

The first page seems to be getting excessively long, limit the amount of images displayed on the center column.

Wow. I appreciate that a lot. My girlfriend has been thinking I've been insane the last few weeks glued to my computer working on this crazy stuff. Feels nice that some people also thought it was a good idea!

I see a lot of positive people around here and I know they are doing great things for Dr. Paul. I just wanted to collect it all and show the world. Wish I had this idea before Thanksgiving at least, but hey...
