Hi all,

In this forum we'll keep you informed of what's new and what's coming up and what's work in progress.

We'll also start a 'request' forum so Members can make requests for things they'd like to see on The Kirkcaldy Book web site.

Here's today's summary for Thursday April 28 2005

1. we had a request to upgrade the News section as it only held headlines from The Scotsman news service. I have added a whole bunch of news feeds and over time we can select from hundreds of different topics to suit our Members and visitors.

Click on 'News & Sport' in the Main Menu and you'll now see local Kirkcaldy news headlines as well as The Scotsman and the BBC. In the top menu there are a range of other sections, including a Sports section covering a range of sports eg football, rugby, racing, cricket and more..

2. The free Ads section will shortly include a Business category to help promote local and #OOPS#ociated businesses. We will also develop a whole section to Fife and Scottish businesses and those who have roots here.

3. The 'About KirkcaldyBook' pages will also be completed asap to help Members and visitors navigate the site more easily.

4. The Games, the Photo Gallery and all existing [unfinished] sections will be tidied up and completed asap.

5. There are a few other sections that we will add in, throughout all above, relating to 'Humour and Jokes', 'Recipes and Food' and other topics that interest everyone at some point or another.


Once that lot is done then we are going to spend some time promoting the site to locals and expatriates and our next competition will be for the best Member Article that can be published in the 'KirkcaldyBook Articles' section. We might invoke a voting system for this one, and we will announce the details and prizes in the near future.

I better stop ranting and get on with it then I suppose.. any comments are, as always, very welcome..

ciao for now..

Hamish, I see you have fallen victim yourself.

Could you please consider reducing the severity of your filters that keep censoring our posts. The Green #OOPS#atoo Restaurant was a very popular and well respected venue in Kdy and will cause offence to absolutely no one. Likewise Ann's cat eyeing up the #OOPS#atiels is totally harmless (unless it catches one).
Of course, I #OOPS#ume that such control is in your power, otherwise maybe you could ask an #OOPS#ociate to #OOPS#ist you with the task before the #OOPS#ault on our senses drives us all to take a holiday in S#OOPS#horpe.

I was only doing my best to protect our Members from the expletives which may offend their gentle souls..

I shall have to 'patch' the script to recognise the words in isolation, bugger it!!

UPDATE: Games - May 01 05
=============

For those that are inclined, there is now a Members only Chess game available where you can play each other by arrangement or challenge, or play a game against yourself. It's a 'real' game set up and is best suited to those who already enjoy a good joust. Access from the Main Menu.

We'll also have a nice graphic/3d board version shortly for those who prefer a more casual approach.

Later
-H

Well done Hamish, the Kirkcaldy Book just gets better and better.
Please don't do too much to the filters, not because I'm one of the gentler souls (far from it )but because they're such a laugh.
