Shropshire Noggin?

Post by piman » Sun Jan 23, 2011 2:43 pm

Hello all,

is the listing on the home page for the Shropshire noggin current, and more to the point is there a regular meeting?

their web page link is about 4 years out of date :?

that's often the problem with enthusiastic members going off and creating their own websites, then letting them lapse.

Hello Jim,

that is what prompted my post. I did not want to call the number listed because of that.

Hi

Due to problems with numerous venues recently the Shropshire noggin meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Bucks Head pub , long lane on the A442 heading north out of Telford . Aim to be there for 8 to 8.30 .

If not done already then maybe the club could update Slice

Send me a message if unsure of location please

Cheers

Steve

It is tricky to keep up enthusiasm for running a noggin website but I believe there should be more of them as it's what attracts new people to go along and join the club, an out of date noggin website does not inspire confidence in my opinion.

Can the noggin co-ordinator be asked to badger all noggins to update their websites a bit more frequently and try and encourage those without one to consider writing one? When I wrote the one for the South Wales noggin it took me a few hours and most importantly, it was FREE!!! :lol:

Granted, it's not the best website in the world but when kept up to date it can be so beneficial to the noggin and the club.

For anyone who wants a free noggin website just so they can put on show dates, noggin meeting details etc, google 'zoomshare' (other free website builders are no doubt available), both the South Wales and Newcastle Noggins use zoomshare and although simple, it does the job.

cheers, Matt

p.s. here's our noggin website - www.highpeaknoggin.co.uk - not bad if I do say so myself (wish there was a 'blow your own trumpet' emoticon :wink: )

surely it would be more logical to have them all linked through the Club site, so Club contact details etc don't have to be published on every single site - they get amended/updated once on the main site (by the Club admin team), you have a common Club template (corporate front page), the webteam are on hand for advice and help, you have a reliable (and paid for) ISP, you have a straight link to the forum (and noggin specific pages), etc, etc.

Lets face it Matt, except for a few well run and enthusiastic individuals sites (like yours), before the last cull you could find far more "poor to abysmal" RSSOC related sites than those that were "good to excellent".

Likewise, the current discussions regarding the wiki - Don Kennedy has kindly kept his excellent pages hosted - check what South West Scimparts now have on their front page (here). Thankfully, the webteam pre-empted this and saved copies of those sites in case they disappeared.

And Phil Wormald's site? (a prime candidate for posterity :D )

the webteam need to confirm that - I asked a previous webmaster to back up that site so I'm not sure if we still have it. I asked the current webteam to back up SWScimparts & Don Kennedys site, so I can guarantee it was done :D

Thanks Jim, In theory anyone who's bought Phil's disk will have their own local copy, but whether that's correctly formatted to serve in itself as a backup for Club purposes I don't know?

So could we have 'noggin pages' within the cub site for those of us that don't want to run our own sites ; but linking to those noggin sites which are being set up & maintained separately ?

maybe not - the whole reason for the thread was because the information presented online elsewhere was way out of date?

We're onto website improvement rather than "is the current information for the Shropshire Noggin still valid"...piman is going to wonder what the :w is!
