Basecamp is a simple and convenient way to coordinate projects between multiple independent agents and clients over a large geographic area. We at Skytemple use Basecamp for all of our projects. This month we take a look at an oft asked question about Basecamp Projects.
“Can I create sub-projects in Basecamp?”
The short answer is, no. Basecamp does not allow for the creation of sub-projects within projects. However, there is a simple and easy work-around to this which allows for the grouping of different sets of projects together. In the following video tutorial, 37signals demonstrates just how to get this process started. The full tutorial can be found here.
An Introduction to Basecamp
Basecamp is an easy and convenient way to coordinate large projects with many independent agents over vast geographical distances. This makes it perfect for web design.
We here at Skytemple have used Basecamp for years to coordinate with our clients and design team. So, when we found this video series helping to explain some of the basics we were pretty excited.
The series comes to us directly from the Basecamp staff who can answer even more questions here.
This first segment covers how the Calendar works in Basecamp.
The Calendar is a powerful tool that allows not only bulletin board style scheduling, but also features the ability to push entire projects forward or backwards in time as milestones are reached or passed.
Skytemple Design is proud to announce our latest project,
SKYTEMPLE SPACE DIVISION
Until now, Skytemple Space Division has been kept top secret. Skytemple staff have been legally bound to nondisclosure agreements. We have lived the last year in the shadows while secretly preparing to lead the way into the final frontier for web design companies.
Finally, our story can be told.
All the way back in 2011 a strange discussion erupted at one of our weekly meetings concerning the news of actor Ashton Kutcher’s recent purchase of a $200,000 ticket aboard one of Virgin Galactic’s new sub-orbital space ships.
Richard Branson, the billionaire head of the Virgin Group claims to have already sold 500 tickets aboard Virgin Galactic’s as-yet launched sub-orbital space fleet.
This got us wondering: why doesn’t Skytemple have a Galactic Space Fleet? We couldn’t come up with an answer.
So after months of soul-searching, we started construction on our proposed Orbiting Sky Temple and our fleet of Skytemple Space Cruisers.
It is thanks to these efforts that we are able to offer our celebrated services in a whole new way.
Websites, in SPACE!
The orbiting Sky Temple hosts three shuttle docks and an impressive array of anti-drone space missiles. Inside its fifty-thousand square foot interior, it boasts impressive living quarters including 70 bathrooms, a full space tennis court, a zero g sauna, and a staff of over three hundred robots. It is 4G and Space Wi-Fi integrated.
Each of the six Skytemple Space Cruisers is staffed by a crew of seven pilots, three engineers, and four attendants. In-flight meals are prepared by master space-chefs and include ‘Astronaut’ versions of all your favorite foods. Freeze-dried ice cream, freeze-dried open faced portable mushroom paninis and freeze-dried foie gras are just a sampling of the vast menu.
I know what you’re wondering. Will Skytemple still make great websites and offer expert consultation for all of my marketing needs? Of course. We will simply be doing it from our gigantic orbiting Sky Temple from now on.

Ancient Mayan calendars prophesy that the world will end December 21, 2012. Although the end of the world has been a long time coming, the topic is more infamous now than ever before. You might want to set up your underground shelter and make some alliance decisions for the Zombie Apocalypse. Everyone’s doing it.
But the folks behind Doomsday Faire 2012 aren’t just talking about the end of the world, they aim to bring The End to Connecticut this summer.
Every culture and faith has their own stories of what it will be like. Some predict the dead will rise from their graves, fire and brimstone will fall from the sky and God himself will appear to bring final judgement during mankind’s final hours. More modern strains of endgame prophesies predict rogue planets, geomagnetic upheaval or flash pandemics turning man against man in an often-burning and shelled out post-apocalyptic arena. Scientists and political leaders have been quick to point out the flaws in these predictions, as well as to reassure the public that Zombies, Aliens and Demons, are, of course, not real.
But what if they were wrong? What if predictions of the end of the world started to come true? Doomsday Faire will be a grand smashup of apocalyptic scenarios. Imagine Zombies roaming a countryside alongside aliens and human survivors, all on a landscape ravaged by celestial cataclysm.
“There are no stores, no malls, no Judicial system, few roads, limited communication, but amongst the utter destruction humanity survived.”
Visitors will wander wartorn streets of a post-apocalyptic world and experience firsthand “what it would be like to celebrate survival in a world full of zombies, aliens, strong and crafty human survivors all dealing with the harsh realities of the end of the world, and making the best of what they have.”
