Interest in making an online game? Can't Post

I'm not sure where to pose this type of question, so I plead forgiveness in advance if this is not it...

I have been worknig with two co-workers of mine to create an online game using mostly CGI. The game was going to be somewhat strategy-based, have some features of your classic "maze/kill-monster/gainXP" type RPGs, and a flexible BBS and private message system for the socialites.

I have had some core-concept scripts written successfully, and am learning Perl/CGI to continue the project. As the only person working on this now since the other two people moved and left my workplace, I lost a few in-progress scripts and routines. However, my creative muse is beginning to be stretched thin.

If anyone would like to help out with either guidance, scripting assistance, or artwork/layout of the site, Please let me know. Even a sounding-board to say "that sounds good/that is too boring" would be an improvement.
Any further details can be provided via email. I have a text file outlining the ideas/work we did so far, and can either attach that to an email or paste it into the body (to encourage those virus-worried folks).

There is no timeframe for this project, but since I've put about 5 months off&on into the game design, I'd hate to see my efforts waste away.

If you are at all interested, simply send me a quick email.
The initial homepage will also be found at
So far I have not activated any of the links, but the main sub-pages have been created. The signup script for players is working at:

Hope to hear from you soon.
