    Well, a bit more background would be helpful. Being new to web design, do you know any languages? HTML and CSS are your basic design languages, but for the type of site you are implying at, you would need to know, or at least be familiar with, JavaScript, PHP, maybe C...I'm not the expert at this, but I hope that gives you a general idea of what you might need to know.

    Definitely ssc

    Bacterozoid,

    for anything multiplayer, especially logging in services, you definitely need server side scripting power, like ASP, JSP, PHP, and what have you.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    Ah, server side languages. I expected something like that to be needed, just wasn't sure. Heh, I learned something. Ah, and that type of thing rules me out for any sort of further help, unless maybe design help was needed, I'm fairly good at site layout/design.

    if you are new to web prog. then I suggest infact I strongly urge you to start off with php ( http://www.php.net ).
    its really simple and easy to learn, soon you will be able to do all that complex stuff yourself
    and ofcourse, there's the php forum whr you can get all the help u need.
