Hi Chris,

Hope you can sort it as I'm really looking forward to viewing & contributing.

This could be good along as everyone puts there details on it.
I will do it as soon as I dig out my old discharge book.

I hope enough people join and add their data. As you say, it will only be successful if there are enough active participants.

Hi Tony,
Are you entering gtzx.org.uk in your browser address bar? If so I'm a bit stumped as it is working OK for me and several others who have visited the site so far. Let me know if you still have a problem.

Tony, just had a thought and added it to the browser search box, this does go to ships nostalgia. You need to add it to the address bar. See the picture attached.

That's the way I had to do it as a Google search takes me to the Ships Nostalgia thread.

As the site gets more visits, will this move it up the Google search results?

I wonder if those of you who are having trouble are using a browser with combined search and address bars. Perhaps entering the full address of http://www.gtzx.org.uk will work.

The more hits the site gets will move it up the Google search rankings.

It works fine if the address is entered into the address bar. What I am not sure is why there is a log in box with username and password when apparently there is no registration information? I think the site needs clearer signposting otherwise its good and a very welcome development.

Thanks for this. There is a link under the log in boxes to sign up which will take you to a registration page.

Just registered and a google search for me finds gtzx.org at the top.
Initial thoughts, excellent Chris and by the way now I have seen your surname, sure we have sailed together.

Are you at the bash on the 19th.
Could be a good place to get across details of year new website.
If you are not, I am quite prepared to hand out some details.
If you draw something up that I can easily print out, might be agood way of getting it out there?
I am at the 1700 do, if someone on here is at the AM/PM do perhaps they could do the honours there?
