Migrate all the historical news articles from old PIVX.org website to current one to both make them accessible for indexing search bots and people.
This adds a tremendous value for both SEO (Search Engine Optimization) which feeds on content and careful researchers writing new articles or official works on PIVX' history.
Such cases has been seen on official Discord quite a few times.
NOTE: Since this is NOT just a simple copy/paste job, the process of inserting articles will be called "processing" in the text below.


This proposal was once already submitted and won the masternode voting, yet it did not get paid due to heavy budget competition of that time.
The task was then crowd-sourced and received 600 PIVs total, which was 1/5th of which the original proposal asked at it's current PIV value.

Work done so far

Alex, who was the receiver of the donated PIVs, have processed and inserted over 65 articles (which can now be found at the bottom of PIVX.org's news section).
The work included:
- copying/pasting the articles from old site (we still have a hidden copy running)
- syntactic fixes to match differences between old and current news engines
- organizing images within our current Media Library backend, some image reworking/cropping/resizing
- reporting all troublesome cases in a separate XLS file
- troubleshooting and consulting with me or Meerkat

Work to be covered by this proposal (both cycles)

- processing all the remaining articles in English (Alex)
- redacting/fixing the articles that could not be inserted due syntactic problems or unavailable functionalities (Alex under Meerkat's supervision)
- fixing SEO-breaking HTML semantics of all existing articles; f.e., multiple H1 tags (Alex)
- additional CSS styling for some of the missing news functionalities like "blockquote", "code", image floats (Meerkat)
- preparing simple custom header images for articles missing them (Meerkat)

Work that will likely not be covered by this proposal, unless...

This proposal was calculated at PIVX being around $1.25. If we will see a SIGNIFICANT price jump during the period of this proposal's activity, some of the below mentioned features might actually get incorporated. Otherwise they will be moved to next proposal, beyond this one's scope.
- processing article translations (Alex)
- improving article's SEO by manually editing HTML Meta tags and JSON-LD linked-data tags for each article (Kyeno, Alex, Ambassador(?))

Looks good.

A suggestion that i cant see why it wouldn't pass could be to expand both your roles? Maybe full time pivx web dev without eric involved with control of the site and daily maintenance. You should be paid for you work. There are 3 stupid pot proposals that are getting pushed through which I believe should be distributed to people where they have a set role. @Eric_Stanek has been wanting to move the website addresses over to someone for a while now. Maybe the web dev is in control of that? so the address follows the web dev proposal? just an idea.


Hey, thanks. :)

This isn't exactly about a web-dev as a whole, rather just filling the site with missing News entries. I have close to no work in this, thus I don't want to rip off the budget for it either. The girls will be working on it mostly, so let them have the PIVs. :)

With my work and my proposal, Eric is actually very much needed to keep track of all things when we're "in the zone" and not really looking at communications much. Also his experience in project management and "get things done" attitude is something that truly helps us push forward without being overwhelmed. So honestly - I don't see a reason to move Eric away; I'm rather thankful that he is with us.
