Bill, I also wonder how up-to-date it is, as it relies on members doing it for themselves. What happens when a loco is sold to another member and the first doesn't delete it, and the second wants to enter it? Does it show twice?

But it gets worse. It initially refers to locomotives/trains but then talks about engines. The only engine I have is in the van that's for transporting my locomotives about, I have no need to record that. Like you, (and apart from the dreadful use of English) I have no idea what this is meant for. It seems to be private - but that's useless, I know what I own. On the other hand, I would want controls on who accesses it should it ever be made public. My take on it, as an IT professional - a half-baked and very poorly implemented feature, probably only there to make the developer money.

Perhaps the website could be reviewed. I've of course referred to it many times and only recently discovered the word 'Links' at the bottom which I think be better in the main ribbon in the header.

Jeez, I never even knew that existed!! And when you look at the page of links, it's one of the most poorly laid out pages I've ever seen. Awful.

Your comments made me look at the LINKS too for the first time. I have recently created a new website for my club - Sheffield & District SMEE - so I looked at the link to us and not surprisingly it was to the old website. However, by a little jiggery pokery, I changed the HTML to point to our new one. I hope that makes sense. My question is this, how easy is it for anyone to get into the site's HTML and change things? Is it just members who have signed in or anyone else? Who monitors the website and will anything change as a result of our comments on this forum?

I have seen and read these postings and this is something that we should review. I will ask the various officers to read this posting. If anyone has a specific question or query about the web site please e mail me in the first instance.
