Peter has had a play around with what it takes to edit this site & make changes, and I am willing to put some hours in too so what would people like on the menus, links etc. It is a bit of a mess at the moment & most stuff is years out of date, I don't think it has been updated for years. We were planning to stuff all the really old articles in an archive & get rid of nearly everything on the left hand menus so we can start with a clean sheet.

Suggestions so far are:
Correct links & contacts for the club, and for the Supporters' Club.
Links to Aviva Premiership or Championship site, whichever is relevant.
Links for BBC commentaries.
A page for visiting supporters with information such as how to find KP, guides to the different stands & tickets available, where to park etc.

I think that is all that we came up with. Please feel free to suggest others or anything on the current menus that you think we should keep.

Cheers.

All good suggestions so far thanks. Basically anything that is useful to Falcons supporters should be easy to find from this site.

Keep it Falcons focused if possible at all times.

Don't try to do too much otherwise it becomes a blur.

Cheers Cantabrian. You may have to thank Kath too as we might have to take up her offer of a bit of help to actually make it all happen.

Honest if I can help to sort out the Menu or whatever no probs.

However,I would not want to be involved with message board stuff as I have enough to look after with England site and the City golf site, hope you understand on that one.

But more than willing to help update and re-arrange stuff for you on the site.

cheers Kath

Well I have managed to tidy up the menus easily enough, all the old stuff is now in the Special Articles Archive if anyone is desperate to find it, except for the Matt Burke interviews which seem to have been expunged, at least the menu links no longer worked.

Next job is to put the suggested useful links up, that will hopefully be done shortly. More suggestions please, either really useful Falcons bits & bobs which will have their own links, or general rugby interest such as the laws as suggested by WWNS which can go on a Useful Links page.

Ta.

Monkey, whatever you do, please keep the Premiership Status tag line. It's enjoyable keeping up to date with the Fat Lady's preparations and always brings a smile.

Although a great singer, personally I hope she never makes it north of Watford so you can introduce another character by next season.
