About the new Website

We hope that you are happy with the new website. Developing the main website and revamping the 356Talk forum has a been a huge effort, accomplished at modest cost. It required analysis of website platforms, organizing over 400GB of data backups from Gordon Maltby, coordinating teams to index forty-five years of magazines, extracting over 300 technical articles from the old website to PDF, designing the navigation layouts, data migration, hiring contractors for technical work, and much more. Volunteers, recognized below, have devoted several thousand hours to reach this point…which is really “Version 1.0” of our new platform. You should expect regular content updates and new members-only benefits. 

As the Project Manager Trustee for the project, I welcome your constructive feedback and ideas. The software platform, ClubExpress, has many benefits and features, especially on the back-end for managing the club business functions.

Learn about the ClubExpress platform that powers the new website.


If you have comments you’d like to share, please send them here: Feedback Email (All emails will be stored.) Please be understanding that with almost 7,000 members, it could take considerable time for us to respond if we are overloaded.

Updates on new website

Please help the Registry.

We plan to continually expand the content and organization of the site, but we need the help of experienced 356 owners. No website experience required! Please send an email with your interests to: Website Volunteering.

Help wanted:

 

Identifying information for Technical Topic pages. Example: Topic Page - Zenith 32 NDIX. The task involves selecting technical topics that are of interest to members, writing a short page introduction and identifying a list of magazine articles, web resources, and forum topics and writing brief descriptions for each. We'll take the information and turn it into a Topic page.

Sourcing content for technical pages. We are seeking high quality scanned files of any non-copyrighted material that helps our members. If you are an author, perhaps there is a way to collaborate to provide some content.

Media Content. We’d appreciate submissions and leads on Media content, including feature articles, videos, photos, art, event reports, etc. 

Adding Regional Club content. We have space to promote Regional Clubs, but we need their input. At the minimum we need good contact information for the main page and Club finder, but we would be happy to discuss hosting sample newsletters/magazines, articles, or other content of interest to our mutual members. 

Thanks to our Contributors!

This website is the result of thousands of volunteer man-hours. Below is a list of significant contributors. Please show them your appreciation. Also thank the Trustees for their support for this new platform.
