Would be great to get it back in business indeed.

Excuse me, I had a little less time than I thought I'd have, so it was taking a bit longer than I anticipated. This made me feel ashamed, since I said I'd have something by the end of September, so I felt hesitant about showing my face here until I actually had something :/

When I decided to built EMK again I wanted to do that with different technology, so that I might actually learn from it again, while preventing some of the mistakes I made previously. I originally wanted to build it in Node.JS, which was awesome, but which was so alien to me that I felt I wouldn't be able to deliver anything within a decent timespan, nor anything of the quality I really wanted.
So by the end of september, I had something, but I had to scrap it because it wasn't decent enough to show anyone.

I'm now building in Python, and I have a much better feeling about it. I'm currently focusing on the backend, which will hopefully allow API calls first, then allow me to build onto that to give the website a front-end. I'm planning to use websockets for the frontend, which will hopefully make it insanely responsive compared to a traditional webapp (only it won't work in the IGB, so it' ll have to fallback to simple AJAX there).

I'll just point this out, but if you're working in Python, I'd encourage you to combine forces with these guys:

They're making great progress, and have a good number of people involved.

Hey, thanks for that. It looks pretty good. I'll see whether anything comes of it.

It looks good, though not as good as I would've liked.

Problem with joining an already existing website is that I'll have to work together with people whom might not share my vision of what it could/should be, but it would be a great help to not be the single person responsible for keeping the website up.
In addition, competition is good, but too much competition makes it very difficult to choose. Adding EMK to the mix again brings the count of market websites to a number above 5 :P
