Hi all,

   I have been a *ambo user for a long time (probably more like Abuse) and have seen such a wonderful community that surrounds it...It is in that spirit that I ask this.

  We are helping (along with thousands of other smaller towns) some of the evacuees (Feeding them, providing shelter, etc) ...but one thing that they are requesting we can do nothing about so far, that is a place to register their name so that family members can find out where each other are.

Most have been seperated from their families, and that remains at the top of their list...we have a website that we would like to use for this purpose ... it is currently running the newest version of *ambo.

We would like a script similar to the one we all used here from the forum to list Name suggestions...adding our suggestions and having them listed after adding them...only we would like for these folks to be able to list their names a, contact info, and where they are so they can contact each other...we are providing emails and such to each....any takers?

I know absolutley very little (and have very little time) to be able to do this now for the work taht is going on...

  Any help is appreciated.....

Thank you in advance,

Jay Dearman

my personal email is support churchofthe.net

I apologize if I posted in the wrong place ... Have limited time online...Thanks JD

Let me know if I can help you with a registration form, and a searchable list.

What do you need:

- Family name
- Name
- Living place
- Where am I reachable

what else?

Please mail me the access keys of the site, then I will install and manage it for you.

Hey - Bless you! :-)

   That sounds great...

  • Last name
  • First nmae
  • Location
  • email
  • family im looking for?

I am also considering a script that could link all of the future sites (of evacuees) together...maybe a news feed, or some other type of script...any ideas?

I may be offline for a few hours...but THANK you from the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of everyone in Louisiana, THANK YOU!


THANK you so so so much!

Ok I'll start right away, but it can take an hour or two until it is running.

Please send me the admin password, and the keys and links necessary for phpMyAdmin so I can set it all up.

Peter Koch,

This is really awesome to see you stepping up to help out.  Obviously the same goes to JayDee... It's really great that the community is there to help with things like this.  I wish I had the expertise to help as well, but it warms the heart to see people helping.

Peter,

  Thank you so much...it is coming together so nice.

  We have been out trying to get service (wireless internet) up to some of the Sherriffs offices due to the slammed POTS lines around here...it has affected everything, including 911 calls...Nuvio has donated 20 IP phones and they are absolutely rocking!

  We will have evacuees phoning family soon....and using the websites out there, just knowing where a family member is or even being able to do "something", even if it just a search, will help them...Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts...

We will be putting up pictures soon on the website and adding emails...thanks again all

Anyone that wants to link to http://www.churchofthe.net or post it out there for prople to see...please do so.

Peter has been knd enough to work all day behind the scenes to get a script up for family members to search for other family members....

Check back soon...

Thanks again!

JayDee

OK JayDee, the forms are now all finished and working properly as far as I could test them.

They however only work in the frontend on your site, because of some file access issues I did
not have time to track down, but you can do everything from the frontend.

I'm going next help somebody else to build a set of forms for shelter management. It will extend
the forms you have, if you want them too just let me know.

Good luck to you and all other helpers and people affected by the desaster. If you need any more
support with the forms, just post here or send me a mail.

The shelter registration and search forms are now also up and running.

Mambosolutions:

Scott Polk is a consultant in Lake Jackson, TX. He is also setting up a mambo site for
desaster help. His mail is:  scott AT scott-polk DOT com

I have allready installed the person- and shelter- search applications on his site, but it seems
he could use your help for the template.

The site has not yet a domain name, you can see it at:

http://209.59.182.41/

The site is http://www.churchofthe.net

PLEASE EVERYBODY, publish the site wherever you can so the victims can find it.
The more people registrate, the more efficient it will work.

Could anybody make a banner?

JayDee,

I think another searchable database where volunteers can registrate with name, email, phones, area, zip,
city,skills/vehicles/machines and time availability would help. I dont know if there are other things with higher priority on
your list though.

I know you must be very busy (or tired) at the moment, helping all those people in your shelter.
If you find some time, please contact me through this thread or by mail.

Hi all,

  This is an unbeleivable task...but it is one we must do, for we are all more fragile than we realize.

Thanks Have to go out to Peter Koch...Peter you are WONDERFUL! Peter has worked trielessly thru many many hours to setup these forms for us... YOU ROCK Peter...God Bless you.
  The new forms and help scripts will be so valuable.

Have only a few minutes before getting back to shelter (and away from connection) so I just want to thank everyone for their prayers and concern for us... we need them and covet them!

What a great community this is!

As requested, we have setup a paypal donation link on the website since our shelters recieve NO aid or anything from Red Cross or any other form of government. Volunteers and Communitys are feeding, housing and helping thousands...please donate to a LOCAL shelter if possible, or donate at http://www.churchofthe.net ...and God Bless you.

I have made a banner now myself, but I'm a poor designer and so it looks. So if any of the graphic artists here
in the forum minds creating something better that would be terrific.

Meanwhile you can pull my banner from the header of http://www.facileforms.biz and
install it on your site. Make it point to http://www.churchofthe.net to direct as many affected
people as possible to the registration site. The more people registrate, the bigger are chances to get families
back together.

Thanks for your support

I'm no artist by any stretch, and I found the images online so I'm not sure if there's some sort of copyright infringement for using them, if they're being used for a cause like this.  If you like, and you either aren't worried about the legality, or know that it's okay, feel free to use it:

to get some official support with the site.

Thanks very much for the support, Shayne!

However you posted the wrong link, the correct one is http://www.churchofthe.net, (not curchofthenet.com)

Could you please correct it?

Hello Everyone,

Peter thanks for letting me know about this thread, I had no idea.  And thanks to all of you offering help.

My name is Scott Polk, I live about 40 miles south of Houston, TX.  Hundreds of thousands of refugees are pouring into Texas, and I want to provide officials with a way of accounting for every person, getting them medical attention and aid needed, and get families and friends reunited now.  

What I am trying to accomplish is huge, and every minute counts.  Whatever help can be given would be greatly appreciated.  I am attempting to contact various local, state and national politicians to help aid this effort.

I realize I can't have everything, but, The "perfect world" for this site will be as follows: (Peter has already been a huge help with this)

1. Register and photograph every refugee and assign each a unique id.  Get personal info, previous work info, missing family info.

2. Create either a basic/or advanced medical record for each refugee (See http://sourceforge.net/projects/freemed maybe this can be implimented some way)

3. Create email accounts for every refugee, and automatically send email alerts if family member found.

4.  Morgue List of identified or unidentified bodies, and where they were found - any other info that can help identify a loved one who has passed.  Need this to tie into missing family info and notifications.

5. Use docman and start putting together libraries of government aid forms to get them help.

6.  Job board to get them into the system to recieve jobs/and employers hire.

7. Forums/Blogs to let them communicate, vent and connect with family or whatever else.

8. Link database - http://www.firstgov.gov/Citizen/Topics/ ... very.shtml


Anything else anybody else can come up with..

I need you to organize each other through here, and act however you can, Peter has been such a awesome help, please contact him for login info for the site, as I am afraid I won't be in front of the computer for the majority of the day

I need the community, and can't do anything without you.  I need you to take on putting this together, while I attempt to coordinate the massive amounts of computer hardware, networks, and more that will be required to pull all this off.

If anyone has a contacts at google, please contact me at scott717 AT gmail.com as soon as possible.
If anyone has the ear of a congressman, politician or celebrity or anyone else that can help open doors and get people to listen to me, please send me an email to scott717 AT gmail.com.

Help me show them what we're capable of folks.  Together we can save lives and give these people the help they desperately need.

THANK YOU!

Scott Polk
