Fellow Sea Scouters:
As you know, work on the Sea Exploring web site is on-going. Much of
it is in the background, taking place as time permits and after a good bit
of discussion and experimentation. All of this is aimed at trying to make
our web site a more effective tool to support and promote Sea Scouting. as
you've probably noticed, we've gotten a few awards for the work we've done.
One element of the web site that has undergone a good bit of work is
the "Download Files" page <http://www.sea.scouter.com/ftp.html>. The files
have been re-arranged to group similar types of files together. This way
you no longer have to sort through a single, long list of items to try to
hunt down what you're looking for. We've also added quite a few files to
the page, including a number of files that may be useful if your Ship is
planning to create its own web page.
Now the requests:
1. Are there Ships/individuals who have additional files that would be use
to more than themselves or their Ships? Examples of this would be images,
Ship's by-laws, teaching materials, forms, spreadsheets, etc. If so,
please contact me OFFLIST <email@example.com> so we can work out the details.
2. There have been a number of excellent ideas on Seascout-Net over the
last 4 months. If someone would be willing, we could create FAQ files,
program ideas files, or additionally web pages from them. No special HTML
knowledge is needed (though it certainly would be helpful). Again, please
contact me OFFLIST <firstname.lastname@example.org> if interested.
3. We remain interested in working with our international Sea Scouting
colleagues to enhance communications over the internet. If you would like
our help in getting Sea Scouting in your country up on the web, please let
us know. Additionally, if you have suggestions for making the web site
<http://www.sea.scouter.com> more useful, please contact us.
That's 'bout it for now. Wishing you smooth sailing ...
Yours in service,
