I haven't been making much use of the forums here as far as contributions go (that is going to change, starting right now), but I've been building sites using Microsoft technologies for a little bit of time now, and especially with the new features of ASP.NET MVC 2 (and the coming v3) as well as the features of Entity Framework 4 utilizing CodeFirst (CTP4 as of right now), I've felt its finally time that I start building some public-facing applications using ASP.NET MVC, as opposed to the applications I've been building for my employer.
I have a project I'm beginning work on now which is to take the general concepts of an old VB6 role-playing gaming aide called grapevine, and modernize it and put it on the web, while expanding it to be an extensible system that can be used for any gaming group, and will feature a lot of standard community features such as blogging, forums, dynamic content, syndication, and a lot more, as well as game-centric options such as character sheet editing, event calendars, and anything else that seems appropriate as we go along. The end product will be an open-source solution that any gaming group that could use, given access to an asp.net 4 hosting solution and an MS SQL Database.
