Fellow Sea Scouters:
As those of you who have been with Seascout-Net for a while know, the
Sea Exploring Web Site Team have created "placeholder" web pages for all
Ships that do not currently have web sites of their own. Our hope is that,
over time, many Sea Scouting groups will develop web sites and the links
from the national site will reflect that.
We have been working on building a component on the national site that
will make building your Ship web site easier and the person working on that
component reports that he's about 85% finished with the task. He has a lot
on his plate just now, but it may still be a few weeks before he finishes.
That having been said, there is one piece of the puzzle that we can
provide you now. We have compiled a listing of all known providers of free
web site space. You can access that listing at
<http://www.explorer.org/web.html>. We strongly encourage you to check out
the potential host(s) before you commit your Ship to using them. The Sea
Exploring Web Site Team is not endorsing any of these service providers.
You need to assess for yourself whether they meet your needs and that their
service does not expose your youth to inappropriate ("adult") material.
Please take the time to be careful with this.
We will be providing additional help in the coming weeks. The
"downloads" page on the Sea Exploring web site includes a few graphic files
that may be useful to you. Additionally, there are a number of web site
development sites out there on the net that you may want to check out.
Among them are the following:
While we will be in a position to offer online assistance in a few
weeks, the team is not prepared to do that just yet. You may want to visit
some of the following Ship sites to get some ideas:
