Proposed Website Changes

Changes to the club website and other proposals have been suggested by member Jerry Weldin in a recent email. Add your comments on this discussion below.

Please note that regardless of claims to the contrary, though prominent article posts are edited for content and style (including the correct spelling of the word 'amateur'), comments are not and have never been edited on this blog (excepting foreign language comments which no doubt do not belong here). Also please note that recent blog posts which are now missing were deleted by the author of the posts, not by the blog administrator. Any errors of fact, inadvertent or otherwise, are corrected as soon as possible, regardless of authorship.
