Hello Brothers and Sisters in Magic, I am pleased to let you know that we will soon be uploading the new and improved website! This will mean that you will be able to see all your favourite pages and some new ones as well as easily access the forum and even enjoy it on your tellingbone! We'll have a special page dedicated to the up and coming 50th Celebrations which want you ALL to come to and contribute to. There will be regular updates from Carol and some new and exciting content for you to enjoy.
Hello my brothers and sisters in magic. I just wanted to apologise for the delay in getting the rebooted website up and running. Time doth fly as a bird doth! My little design agency is busier than ever but my colleague Kevin and Iare dedicated to bringing you a site that’ll work on your phones, enable Carol to upload fresh news articles and games etc and communicate what’s in store for the 50th anniversary year. It will look altogether better. We’re well on the way with the site now, so stay tuned! I’ll be back with further announcements and news very soon!
Yes, we really hope we can get more interactive with our members and get more people to join us. To this end we would still like as many members as possible to add their contributions to Alan's book. It will be quite unique to other fan clubs we think, and, it gives people an opportunity to give their thoughts which, are of course important to us. Also the book will raise interest and not to put to fine a point on it - much needed funds!
We have also drawn up a 20 questions profile, that will give an insight to who and what our members interests etc (aside from Catweazle) are. So again we really hope that people will take us up on it and join in. All this type of stuff will go on the new website (providing I am not too thick to work it!!!) There will be quite a bit to read regarding the 50th event so I will do it bit by bit, but update often, otherwise it might look like a new book of War and Peace appearing on the first page of it's dedicated webpage!!
So in the borrowed words of the mighty atom himself Keeeeeeeeep Looking!!
I must apologise for the late uploading of the new website. It is just that certain issues with new software etc and problems related to it, plus of course the fact that its a lot of work has delayed it somewhat. HOWEVER we are very close now and I am getting excited about re-vitalising people's interest in everything. If we possibly can, and with the help of members, I hope we can put new items about members etc on there for people to read about and to put some crosswords, word searches etc on our new "Pips and Crops" page. So we hope that the website will be used and returned to often. We welcome anyone who would like to send any ideas or suggestions for what can be added here for people's entertainment. So do email me or put suggestions on the forum. There will be no need for passwords or codes for the website as it will be for all to see. Any confidential stuff will be put on the members only area on the forum, as you do now (you will have to register on that though with your membership name and number to access it) I will of course post on here (very soon) about the launch date.
Maybe he is right - he does do a lot of chauffeuring! However, I still think that blond wig he keeps in the glove compartment is nearer the former character - don't worry your secret's safe with me! LOL
It's been a bit of a slog but we are finally uploading the new updated website by Sunday evening. YAY! There may be one or two glitches that we have to sort out but these usually only show up when it goes live! So do bear with us in the first few days. For example the shop will only show prices for UK only at the moment. That's not to say we wont send items abroad, it's just that we can't differentiate between UK, Europe and the rest of the world postage at the moment on our system, but upon request we will quote to send outside UK via a different method. Please send in answers to your twenty questions (those who took the papers with them last week) and anyone else can see the questions on the website and we would welcome members to write these down and send their own answers via email to me and I can upload them as they come in. This is important because we want to get people involved and interested in their fellow members. We want the website somewhere that people return to join in with and do the crosswords and read and tell us stories etc. Also of course please DO sponsor a toad for next year. All proceeds will go directly into a prize fund for the event. The more toads sponsored - the bigger the prize money. It is also a bit of fun and banter and that's what it's all about. In anyone has any problems accessing anything on the website please email me. We hope you enjoy it. xxxx
I do hope so Alan. I am very pleased that both you and Chas have mentioned it. I was wondering if anyone had looked at the new one, so your feed back is appreciated. We need our members to check in and take part. We are still attracting new members which is fantastic and we want the new website to be a good base for all our members and we want them to enjoy it and participate whenever and wherever possible as we do on the forum here. Thank you to those who have sponsored a toad in the Flying Toad Challenge so far - but we have 100 available and need the majority of these to be sponsored for the game to be viable next year, so please go to the 50th page and sponsor your toad. You don't even have to attend or take part on the actual day - you and your toad will be represented and have as much chance of winning as anyone else, so give it a go.
