    Welcome to :escouts: Carl

    I looked at your website, but had to copy and paste the link in your sig, as it won't let me click it. It looked a nice clean and simple site though :thup:

    The link from your signature does not work, but having cracked that the initial impression is good.
    The site did not load that fast for me (could be just browser/link) but seemed quite good.
    There were a few typos I spotted (one in the day the Scout meet).
    I am not sure that 2007 counts as a recent camp/event, but that is just being picky.
    However, after two or three pages with no photos I ws bored - sorry but it needs to show Beavers, Cubs ans Scouts having fun and joining the adventure.
    Good start - just needs the extra touch.

    First impression: takes a very long time to load. And its the same for every single page!

    Why is the first letter of every word capitalised? It looks terrible and is very hard to read!

    Apart from that, its a nice website - though you should apply for Escouts hosting so you don't need to have those ads at the top.

    On my laptop load time seemed ok, content was ok but could do with a bit of expanding in places. Definately hate the ads, a very good reason to use escouts and the capitals on words looks tacky. The home page link to TSA is messy and squashed, considering how neat and tidy the rest of the site is it looks out of place.

    The badge section is way out of date for a new web site and a 103 page PDF is unlikely to be read past the first couple of pages. The same applies to the recent events, drop the old pictures and get some new things.

    Although on the face of it this looks like a lot of criticism the site is actually neat and tidy, easy to work through and with a liitle fine tuning could be a very nice site.

    The link from Mid Herts site works ok with this new one, a link back would be nice.
