Helping to Build the Oregon Football Respository
We are building something special as a resource for Oregon Football fans everywhere, but need help with time-consuming work to help make it happen. I am putting tons of hours on the project, and thus why the first section of the Oregon Football Repository is up and available here, but I need help from you!
We had a big tech problem on the site a few years ago, and thus why we do not have an index or a way to find articles–and I wish to change that in order to help Ducks tap into the wonderful collection of articles created over the last six years. We explain the project in this article for you to consider…
I wish I could tell you it is glamorous work, but it is not. It is repetitive and boring, but must be done to create something special as we are copying-and-pasting and writing a sentence summary about each of a few hundred selected articles. I have been working away at it, but with a few hundred hours of work ahead of me–it will take forever to complete it.
Could you put in five hours a week for four months? If I we have a few volunteers in addition to the hours I put in–we can build something unlike anywhere else on the web for Oregon fans. Volunteers will be recognized on the pages their work will appear; I do this to say thanks, but also to encourage others to join us. (We have a ton to do)
What is in it for me? Well–not much other than paying the bills of the site and the satisfaction of helping the writers and analysts have their work read by thousands of fans over the years. I gave up trying to monetize the site, and now just want to help readers and fans like before.
There is no other website like this for educating the football fan; help us to help the fans as we are a non-profit all-volunteer site.

For the Retired? The majority of our writers are passionate Oregon fans who have full time jobs, families and other interests, (Some are even retired) yet weave in some time to their beloved Ducks through this site every week. You are welcome to join us!
