Website Update

28/07/10 - Website Update

So the website update is progressing well and a large amount of the out of date content has been removed, although we still have some way to go. The forums have been pruned back to a bare minimum, and it would be good to come up with a way of increasing the usage of these forums. I suppose the goal is to use these forums as a way of encouraging debate across the community, although whether people will embrace such an open forum for debate would be challenging.

Content sourcing is starting to improve with some members of the community, providing feedback on events. I'll keep e-mailing everyone on a regular basis to try and get people into the habit of providing data for the site, the more data that we have the more valid the site will be.

Interest has been shown by members of the community improving the image handling on the site. At present, the two of Gigha provides small thumbnail images that can be expanded to a decent size image. However, some of these are not the best depiction of Gigha, and there are many keen, good photographers, currently on the island. I am looking at ways of adding to the gallery. However as this is not technically feasible. We will merely provide an external link to a Flickr account that already exists, which has some excellent pictures of Gigha.

There has been some very good feedback on the speed with which news items appear on the site. It is important that news items appear quickly, as locals will then start coming to rely on the site as a means of finding out relevant current information. Thanks to everyone who has provided support for this.
