    tMP Website of the Month nomination

    I'd like to nominate the new website of "Seindorf Arian Aberystwyth Silver Band":

    Main reasons:
    - ease of use
    - clean design
    - wonderful use of pictures, both archive and contemporary (see pic of band standing up to play national anthem in Albert Hall on the home page)

    I would like to 2nd this site please

    For the reasons mentioned as quoted (even though I don't know the band) and more.

    I am an IT professional living just outside Portsmouth, IMHO I consider this to be a good example of a well thought out website in all areas but mainly in usability, ease of use and presentation of information.

    Most importantly when navigating the site it becomes apparent the band has worked with the webmaster and they have spent a lot of time considering the presentation of the band, there is no personalisation, drunken pictures or inside jokes to be found anywhere on the site this is a big plus for me because a band would not take these things on stage with them where deportment, behaviour is very important as much so as the performance its self - So I have a question perhaps for another thread and that is :-

    Why do bands in general, and I understand it is not all bands, feel the need to advertise them selves a drunks, fools and generally badly behaved individuals on the internet when the very people they are try to impress from new players to getting band jobs including the good jobs (you know the ones I mean) are probably going to look at the website as the first place they will go for more information – I know I would?

    My advice – contact this webmaster, ask his advice and improve your bands image

    Just so we can be clear, you are seconding the Seindorf Arian Aberystwyth Silver Band website?

    So are you allowed to second on the nomination section
  16. WoodenFlugel

    WoodenFlugel Moderator Staff Member

    Yes, unless a website is seconded it won't be put forward into the final poll next month.

    You may be getting confused with our "5 years live awards" nominations, which don't require a seconder. As Di has already said in the first post, there is a list of rules available by hovering over this text: WoM Nomination Guidelines.

    Although late in the month, I would like to nominate the new look Blackburn and Darwen Band's website, URL

    The reasons for this nomination are as follows:

    1) Elegant simplicity, lots of clean space.
    2) Good balance between professionalism and humour
    3) Aimed not just at banders, but looks outwards to the general public, for example explaining the band's structure, aims and objectives.
    4) Good detailed history of the band.
    5) Yes I am biased, but I know that the webmistress Sue Speakman puts in hours and hours of work, and gets very little credit for it.
