  • Depending on what you want to do with Slash, the answer ranges from "no" to "be careful". First off, I'd wait until bender is fully operational, because its administration and configuration is much simpler. The code is much better designed.

    If you want to make a site that is very similar to slashdot and you don't expect heavy traffic, and you're willing and able to learn as you go along (and accept some frustrations), then you could totally have someone else help you set it up.

    If you want to have a unique site based off of Slash, and it's going to get heavy traffic, then you're going to need someone who understands webserving, databases and perl to deal with the inevitable headaches/tweaking.
