    What I seriously suggest is that most or all of these measures are necessary anyhow for general web use, whether or not you use Facebook. Facebook is the high-profile 'risk' but it's just the tip of the iceberg. Most websites contain some...

    Facebook may well be 'an utter waste of space' but the WSR cannot ignore the vast numbers of the population that DO use it. These people are their customers, potential customers, volunteers and potential volunteers. The posting by @mikechant is...

  3. ghost liked tracker's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    Fairly frequently, a search on Google for the WSR produces Steve's "unofficial" site in number one position. That's fine by me, but the WSR website ought to be in that spot. SEO isn't rocket science. There are a few on this thread who cannot...

    If you just want to look at (say) a public facebook page for a railway then most people's privacy/tracking concerns and desire not to give any ad revenue to facebook can be addressed fairly easily: 1/ Don't sign up or sign in - public pages can...

    I think you are mistaking quantity for quality - better to have a smaller number of well-written and illustrated articles than a picture a day that might have nothing to show. Beyond that - culture comes from within. So if you are a supporter,...

  8. ghost liked mdewell's post in the thread Nasmyth, Wilson and Company 0-4-0ST.

    That is very helpful thank you. I knew Meenglas was being restored but had not realised she had been returned to Foyle. Very smart looking loco. It seems that Drumboe is very thorough restoration (Shame they can't take it a step further to...

    You could contact Stuart to see if anything that is left on his project could be of use.

    That's really the point. If it is not at the top you have to start searching. If I'm Joe Public scanning through looking for information and don't t realise I've got the wrong site, you've lost me. I do wonder if the front page could be a mirror...
