I'm Ian. I live in the UK and am a software developer with skills in HTML, CSS, ASP, C#, VB, SQL. I'm looking to offer my services to help out here and do some work for you while I'm basically on gardening leave for the next six months.
If I can be helpful to the team, just let me know! You can reach me here (I log on every day), or at my e-mail address: foz AT blueyonder.co.uk

No flash, and my art skills are AWFUL!!!! But I do have a little experience of PHP (enough to get by with, and I'll learn as I go if that's what you need), and my CSS is probably 6/10. I can do CSS menus and stuff (again, I'll improve once I know what you need).

hmm oki. I'll have a ponder and see if I can come up with something for you to do. I don't really want to add another person to the programming team at the moment, we've already got 16 people of varying levels of PHP experience and it's taking enough of my time managing that many people as it is.
If you've an idea you'd like to work on then let me know. Just recently we had a bloke write up a stock market proposal off his own bat, we're in the process of working on an implementation plan for it now.
Well PHP and ASP are somewhat similar, so you shouldn't have any problems. Even if you are somewhat unexperienced in PHP and the like, many of the developers and players alike will often help out anyway they can. If I were you, and if I was determined to contribute to the project, I would start attempting to learn how to use PHP and MySQL, ask questions to those willing and able to listen and just keep at it!
Like Khan said, if you can think of a great new thing you would like to see in SWC, write up a proposal and you never know what could happen! You've already taken the first step, so keep up the good effort!

I don't know really what language would be proper, but I noticed today that the Classifieds could really use a clean-up.
Maybe make it a bit more visually IC, buttons, flashy things, one of those zoom menus when you click it, maybe a "Guide to the Classifieds" at the top so it's not 100 identical posts asking for a cheap A-Wing or selling the 18 ears he found when he walked out the door? :P
Just spitballin', but that's definitely something that could use some gussyin' up
