Site rebuild

I am commencing work rebuilding the AAF site back to its former glory.

I would be interested in getting your thoughts and feedback in what you would like to see included, and how you would like to see things sorted and presented.

Re: Facebook

I have started to upload some photo albums on the Facebook site to hopefully spark up some conversations.

One of these days I will find a CMS that will do what I want it to do, and rebuild the AAF site back to its former glory.

Keep the designs and ideas coming guys. I like Vee's idea of an old classical ride. Superloop - Turbo is deffinitely in that ball park. One thing to keep in mind, depending on what is used to put the logo on shirts (embroided, screen printed, iron-on), if you use images that are very detailed, it co...

Thanks for the offer of help guys. I am currently rebuilding the AAF site using eZ Publish CMS from the old site which was just done in frontpage.

We had members from theme parks who would notice the shirts and stop for a chat. Seeing a few people are interested I will add it to the list with the c...

Re: my eyes hurt

You win some and you lose some. I will get around to customising as soon as I get the chance. We will try and match it to the new AAF site we are also building.

All I can say is it is bloody fantastic not having to delete hundreds of spam accounts every couple of days.
