    I have given a new look and layout to the website. Please take a look and let me know what you think - what you like, what you think should be done differently.

    One thing I'd like to do is update the photos. As some of you know, I have a digital SLR camera that takes really nice pro-quality photos. But one thing at a time...

    I've uploaded the redesigned site to a free server. My hope is to be able to put it on the official server at some point.

    An update on the site: I have a package with a Toronto hosting company. I have created a directory there for www.londonrogues.com, and have uploaded all the files to that server. I have been in contact with Fantyx and have given him the new name servers. Once he adds that information, the Internet pointers will all point to the new site. It may take up to 24 hours from when Chris does this until all the DNS pointers around the world point to the new site. Hopefully Chris will take care of this asap. Once this is all done, I'll take down the files from that bravenet free hosting site.

    If anyone has any suggestions for content for the site, or would like changes made, feel free to PM or email me.

    Thanks for changing this so quickly. BTW I just checked http://www.londonrogues.com and it's pointing to the new site for me. :)

    I've taken down the site on bravenet, so if you try to follow the link from my earlier post in this thread, it won't work. The site can now be accessed at http://www.londonrogues.com

    In honour of the Ewoks we've been building, I've given the Endor treatment to the website.

    That looks good. I forgot last year was the 25 anniversary of ROTJ.

    I've added a poll to the website, in an effort to keep people interested, and coming back. If you have any suggestions for poll topics, send them to me in a Private Message.

    That's a good idea.

    Here's something that needs to be done with the web site. On the FanForce Canada page, there is a link for London Rogues web site. It's for an old site and the link is deactivated. You'll have to contact the RSA to have that changed to the new web site.

    I have updated the link for the redesigned London Rogues web site and I have added it to the Canada General forum.

    So is that the only promo that made it to air?
    also the Ewok song doesn't play.

    Good work on having a diferent video every so often.

    I did a little more tinkering with the main page. The Celebration page has more content too - with links to the sponsors' websites. I got rid of the link to the Ewok song. I intend to switch up the video content every couple weeks just to keep it interesting. I'll change the poll once a month.

    I had my MP3 recorder on CHRW this morning and caught the one promo. If I hear another one, I'll record it too and add it. My emails to CHRW are no longer being responded to.
