Amending a page

It is often difficult to follow your request if it says something like “Can you change XX to YY”  or “Please add ZZ to the page”.  Sometimes emails go back and forth.  The most helpful thing is if you simply copy the page (or section) and amend it yourself and send the amended text.  That way we can often just make the change as you intended.

Your suggestions for improving the site

We welcome your suggestions, but please do not make general criticism without specific proposals.

It’s not helpful to say things like:

  • When we get a decent website we will be able to….
  • Why don’t you get a good web designer
  • The XXX page isn’t easy to follow
  • The site needs modernising if you want to appeal to young people

More helpful things to say:

  • Here’s a picture you might use on YYY page
  • Here is the link to a great video clip for page YZ – I suggest you start it at ZZ mins in and put it next to the PP paragraph.
  • Page ZZZ doesn’t explain PPP very well, here is some suggested wording
  • At the moment it is difficult to find QQQ, could you…….
  • The site would appeal more to young people if it looked like this…….. I can help you do this (or know someone who can)
