Just a quick update. I've had a sneak preview of the website - it's brilliant. Very professional, very well structured, caters for all we need and more. It's informative interactive and even does your ironing (that bit's a lie) but it is very very good. 

When it goes live, get behind the Amber Ribbon, tell your mates, tell everyone it's worth a visit.

 

The AR owe a great deal to one individual, who stepped up to the plate. Thanks ... you know who you are.

 

We need someone with website skills to take this forward for us. If the site is to be used to it's full potential it needs the skills it deserves. We need one of you lot to come forward and take up the reins. I'm told the commitment would only be about an hour a week.

 

So come on. Who's prepared to help.

Well amber ribbon I commend your recent efforts. You have very much birthed yourself into the digital age and embraced the internet. Since my last post you have created an active facebook/twitter page and your well on the way to going live with a website well done. Now let’s connect with the non internet connected generation. I’m more than willing to put my many printers into action to print out whatever you need regards hand out newsletters for game days. Let’s drop a sheet onto every table in the royal suite for the supporters to read. You AR guys know who I am now so if you want anything printing out in bulk let me know.

The website is now live, and as with all new things there is bound to be teething problems from elusive spelling mistakes to broken links.

Any feedback will help put things right, if you have issues seeing the whole screen simply hold down CTRL and scroll the wheel on your mouse to adjust it.

http://www.amberribbon.org.uk

Please post any issues in this thread, but also things you particularly like or you feel could be expanded.
We are also looking for anyone who feels they can offer anything for the site from photographs to match reports to even running it as I will be handing it over in due course.

Enjoy :)

I know that BISSA are much further down the road than you guys but this is very interesting and might be an idea the next time around:

We recently launched our 'Spread and Save' scheme. Fill up your jam jar with loose change and all funds generated will be put towards supporting the club. We've already had jars back! For more info visit www.amberribbon.org.uk.

The Amber Ribbon has an information booth behind the South Stand on most home match days and committee members are present in the Royal Suite after games. Why not come and say hello?

As an added incentive for 'Spread and Save' participants, prizes will be awarded to those who return their jars first and raise the most money. Fill one jar and get another one (filled with jam!) for free.

Whys it called the Amber Ribbon, out of interest?

No mention of Red or Black and not sure what the Ribbon bit is about?
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

It's something that is sung in the south stand on game day, "she wore an amber ribbon, she wore it for her lover and he played for Dewsbury"
"Are you tryin' to mug me off in front of my pals?"

Can anyone explain why there is a page dedicated to the Batley club, with several sly digs and sarky comments included?

Yes I'm aware there is a spoof site mocking Dewsbury, which I suspect has been created by an independent Batley fan. However that person/s have done this independently. It doesn't feature on the club official site or the BISSA one and never will.

All this does is make the AR look like a bit of a joke with little credibility, which I suspect is the total opposite of your objectives as a supposedly serious fundraising organisation. If you feel that the best way to attract members is to mock a rival club then you really need to have a good think about what your doing. Surely you can think of much worthier initiatives to attract support. If not then you need to look at finding a better committee.

This isn't the comments of a defensive batley fan. I'm just shocked that an actual affiliated organisation would consider this appropriate. Funny for Rams fans more than likely, but hardly representative of an organisation with a serious and professional intent.

Shame really as the rest of the website looks great.
