About this Website

Please mention the website if you have come into the club after finding out about us on this site.

Some time ago I received a lovely e-mail telling me that this is the "worst website on all of the internet."  Hey - maybe there`s an award for that :-)   My correspondent was not specific - he just said it was crap - so please send in your suggestions for how this site can be made even worse!

Seriously, I can think of a number of ways of making it worse.  It could be a fancy, flashy thing with all sorts of bells and whistles that are there just for show.  It could have too many graphics and pictures which obscure and distract from the information content.  It could be bloated in size and so convoluted in its layout that it would be unreliable and slow to use, making it difficult to find the information you`re seeking. There are more than enough websites like that.

This website does what it says on the tin.  Do you want fancy? If so, the Red Shed (and its website) is probably not the place for you.  "Keep it simple" is the watchword(s) here.

Things to do

Here is a list (in no particular order) of possible upgrades to this site which I have in mind, and may get around to doing at some time.

Any other ideas?? Feel free to make suggestions.
