We're forever discussing ways of improving the site - and in some instances are experimenting to find the best way forward.
The Members' Trip section is one example - although it looked quite "pretty" as it was, it just wasn't interactive enough. Just a little change like giving it a new forum section of it's own appear to have helped and we're (or rather Richard) will soon be putting this as the link from the home page.
The other area that needs constant updating is the calendar in the AwayDays section. We're still considering the best way forward on this - whether this is an embedded spreadsheet or calendar or a link to the forum calendar. Although the calendar on the forum is a nice addition, it seems like you can only see a monthly view and not an events' list which shows everyone a summary of trips.... I'm still looking closer into this and we may use this option but (in normal female fashion) want to have a good look at all the others first.
Just so the forum calendar doesn't look quite so empty, Danensis, I've started to add a couple of the trips in March (some linking through to the posts where they're discussed) just so you know what to plan around.
- if anyone wants to add others, feel free. You can add an event and then link it to a new post on the board, I just wish I'd realised that on Sunday before posting all those MOTs !!
