I have mentioned to others about leaving comments about stuff to get other peoples views but I dont think they take me seriously!! But I do know my friend who is non guiding has visited the site just as a visitor not signed in!! and she says it is a really good idea!!!
And yes I am visiting the site more than I used too!! But it is a good way to let off steam!!!! tehehe!!!
i seem to have bouts on here. come on constantly for 3 weeks and then hardly at al for 3 and then constantly again lol. im in a constant one atm, not for long though - two camps coming up in the next two weeks! lol!
I'm glad you all like the site, we want it to be as useful as possible. If anyone has any ideas, comments and constructive criticism then please let us know what do think.
We got some ideas in the pipeline at the moment such as the Necker Design Tool, a fundraising program, competitions.
I’m learn a program called Flash at the moment that is used to build interactive websites and games. So if anyone has an idea or some fun games I could create that’s guiding related let me know as it’s better if I create something we’ll all want to play while I’m learning. The most common flash games are shoop-em-ups but I don’t think that would be appropriate, unless it was say a mud fight. It could be called, Get the Scout! Lol. Can’t really think of many others, maybe a guide themed crossword game or Find the Guide. Anything really.
My current GiC and the assisstant and everything all seem really impressed. They don't use the site, but are shocked by how i can give them an answer to something so quickly when it takes weeks locally, and how i know about new stuff before they find out at district level!
Went on the guiding website yesterday and there was a quetionaire about internet use, did I like gguk site, the message board, what was my fav. website etc.
So naturally I put down this one, said the message board was not much good and recommended they look at this to see how usefull a guiding forum can be!
