    1st Britannia Scout Group

    I have only just discovered the existance of Escout,and have to say how impressed I am at the content covered.
    We have recently established out 1st website - -and wondered if I could get some feedback from the rest of the escout community.

    take a look....

    I couldnt see anything apart from a green background - however this could be due to works firewall and security measures

    Looks like it is a 'Flash' site as has been discussed in another thread recently.

    Frighteningly impressive but can it be seen on 'older computers'?

    Having said that, I'm green with envy!! It must have taken you months and months to put that lot together. The videos are teriffic!

    Just one little speller - BADEN POWELL (No 'I')! bit of a key one to get right- that!

    Meh, If it wasn't flash, with that content, would be one of the best scouting sites I have seen!

    With the flash, it feels slower and messier,

    Great work with the content (y)

    Very Pretty but very very difficult to use

    1) The page is too long you scrolldown and you lose the menu
    2) You can make the menu's overlap
    3) Something is wrong with the page transistions it's very jerky

    content is good but can you find it ?

    Great content but I agree everything is a bit jerky. You have done the Cub and Beaver pages very nicely. I like the backgroundon both.

    Unfortunately I only get a partial text version at work - I will try again from home.
    This is a big problem with Flash based sites which means they may not be accessible to users who do not have personal computers and rely on work, internet cafe or public library facilities.

    Massive site, lots to burrow down into.
    the Flash or whatever worked fine down my country broadband (poor) connection.

    I looked at the cub page, and it took me a while to work out where the menu was. I really like the backgrounds, but my suggestion would be to have some more content on them, as opposed to having a page that says click a menu for more information.

    I think theres too much going on with the flash with things appearing, etc.

    I would like to see an atlernative non-flash version for people who don't have flash, don't like flash or have a slow internet connection.

    I agree - too many "loading" bits and the whole thing is too big! I have a large, wide screen and the text just appeared huge!

    The S of send to a friend is cut off.
    I looked at the site in IE and got a completely different site. One that was not flash based.
