PHP doesn't get any mention on the site, either. For years and years, on the old site, it had a "placeholder" page with nothing in it. When the new website was done earlier in the year, they didn't transfer any sections that had empty content.

It seems to me that, if the PHP users in our community want/need a relationship, *you* need to do something that shows your interest. Not just one person trying to make it happen, but an active group that establishes what it wants and goes after it. The other driver groups (Java, .NET, ODBC, Python) at least show their existence to the world...even if their pages at are fairly sparse.
