stuart has kindly (VERY kindly, as always) reminded me that there is more to this site than the board...!<P>i confess i have the BOARD front page bookmarked, and only look at the rest occasionally as a diversion. <P>does anyone else do this?<P>having said that, though, i looked around again yesterday, and quite a few changes nad updates have occurred, so don't forget it's there, like i do Image...

talking to myself, again...is there anything in particular which readers would LIKE to see here, while we're talking about the rest of the site? or while I'M talking about the rest of the site...<P>personally i'm not keen on any site trying to be "all things to all people"...there's so much good stuff out there already. and we all know that the real problem becomes not WHAT you can find, but how to find EXACTLY what you need - and nothing else...(except when you want to get diverted...)<P>we're open to ideas, either put up here on the board, or emailed to any of us...

"stuart has kindly (VERY kindly, as always) reminded me that there is more to this site than the board...!"<P>THERE IS!? Image<P>So that's what all those links are when I type in <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com." TARGET=_blank>www.criticaldance.com.</A> <P>Seriously, though, what about a "Reviews" section? <P>------------------<BR>~Intuviel~<BR><A HREF="http://www.freetown.com/Uptown/HaightAshbury/1055/ballet.html" TARGET=_blank>Balletica</A><BR>

Yes, I'm like you concerning those other other links on the main page. And guess what!<BR>There is one for reviews, but i'm not altogether sure I find it very inviting. I think I'd rather go straight to Chat, I always seem to find instant coverage here.

I like the idea of more reviews too. If we could get the flow of reviews up, then we could maybe have a Reviews section where the 'more than a couple of paras ones' could e preserved rather like our Interviews section.

Well what do you know? There IS a reviews section after all! How extraordinary Image!<P>How about more hot links (there is precisely one, at the moment)...and what about a few articles (of a non~review sort)? Other than that, I really can't think of anything (well, you might return the favour and link to my site, but other than that...

ALL GOOD IDEAS! -if only there were three of me! Image<P>thanks all for jumping in here. Image<P>Reviews: i'm getting permission from Dance Australia to put some of my reviews and articles/interviews up here. it sounds like it will happen OK. This is despite the fact that personally i am not keen on having a reviews section - but i see that others are, so that's OK.<P>FUNNY STUFF - definitely something i want to see, and to do - with help, hopefully. i think of it as a build-as-we-go sort of effort, taking from some of the threads and editing for the best stuff. this just needs time (from ME!)<P>LINKS PAGE: i think this is becoming unavoidably necessary. Intuviel, i'm sure you are aware that we DO mention your lovely site in our "Sites that link to US" thread? i am enraptured by that photo of ferri every time i see it: can i ask where you found it?

Grace...it looks to me as though my site is mentioned in that thread because...I mentioned it Image. <P>I found that photo of Ferri <A HREF="http://www.twinight.org/people/carolyn/dance/index.html" TARGET=_blank>here</A>. There's also a lovely photo of Suzanne Farrell. <P>------------------<BR>~Intuviel~<BR><A HREF="http://www.freetown.com/Uptown/HaightAshbury/1055/ballet.html" TARGET=_blank>Balletica</A><BR><p>[This message has been edited by Intuviel (edited June 01, 2000).]

i don't have time to check now, but KNOWING YOU(!), i'm sure you're right! Image however, to be fair, at that stage i started a separate thread for your site, all to itself <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000020.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000020.html</A> <BR>rather than list it in "Sites that link to US" because, to be honest, i didn't think you DID! i can see you DO NOW, which is great! thanks. Image<P>and that's one purpose of this thread - because we simply don't know exactly who DOES have a link for us...so please, readers/members/others, if you see us linked ANYwhere, please will you let us know?

Okay, maybe we should have a Reviews page (when we have more of a steady flow of reviews) and a Links page. The funny stuff should stay here though, in the chat/bulletion board, in my opinion.

Post subject:  Re: whole site, not just the board!

azlan (and others): i guess i don't really understand the concept of the Reviews page - are you meaning a Reviews THREAD on the board for members to post in, OR a DESIGNATED (FORMATTED) REVIEWS PAGE accessed from the site's home page: in which case, whose reviews will go there? <P>what plans, if any, do you have to differentiate, if at all, between professionally contributed reviews and member's posts? i haven't formulated any opinion on this myself - i'm just asking about YOUR thinking...?
