I recommend helping out an Open Source project. I am not aware of too many PHP open source projects, but a few that come to mind are phpBB and SquirellMail. I am sure that there are many more as well, and with your knowledge I'm sure you could help out.

However, if you are really "lacking motivation" and want to broaden your experience, I recommend learning a language such as Python, Perl, or C++. Once you get the hang of one of these languages, you can contribute to one of the many many many open source software projects. Just check out SourceForge.

I have a project you could even make a few bucks on. vBulletin has a nice VBSEO mod available for it. In addition to rewriting the URLs, it also creates dynamic meta tags for title and description. Invision really needs something comparable.

For instance, with Invision, you can create a dynamic title using <meta name="keywords" content="<% TITLE %>" />

However, the problem is the title isn't broken into key words. For example this title would be "We Geek together We Work Together - Geeks to Go!" when it should be "we, geek, together, work".

Next is a dynamic meta description. Ideally the first 255 characters of a description should be copied to a dynamic description field. Invision offers no way to do this. I've played around some creating a macro in class_display.php, but I'm not a coder, and it should also have any special characters stripped.

I have a project that I started about a year ago and its become a very useful thing that I would like to expand.

Mags with your Flash experience we could make it look really nice.

mpfeif101 with our combined php experience we should to be able to make it a bit more functional.

thenotch with your extensive css experience we can make it compliant and give it the ability to be "themed" or at least easily changed to fit other websites.

Think you might be interested in this sekrit project? PM me :whistling:
