All this confuses me.

I was asked to re-submit - by joining the Forums. When I re-submitted, all I got when trying to validate the Activation Code was a page saying the web address (of the link in the activation email from Chazhound!) was not valid. Nor could I get the Activation Form to accept validation - it came back with the same page. Then I found that my account was activated anyway. To top all that, I now find that, in the 'new' Dog and Pet Directory, my listing still dates from September 2003, and is not a re-listing at all!

So I joined this Forum and re-listed for nothing?

Issues to address here?

Lee Johnson.

Hi Lee,
Don't know why your activation link didn't work. We have a problem with that every now and then. The system showed you as a registered but unconfirmed member which is why you can't subscribe or do other features. I went ahead and activated that part.

The directory database was intergrated with the forum member database so one log in would work with both. If you are a webmaster then you know how difficult this was to do. We had to do it as we were getting dozens of spam sites clogging the directory. Your old listing stats were kept and if it isn't relisted/modified and attached to your username, it would have been deleted soon.

Please keep in mind, these are free services and this is a personal dog site. While we try to maintain everything to a professional level, things will go wrong. We don't have a stable of 20 webmasters to code everything and only one admin

Please let us know should you experience any more problems.
Chazhound

Default Thank you

I am indeed a webmaster, and, yes, I do know the difficulties involved when introducing new features to a web site. What you have said is fair comment indeed.

However, part of webmastership is solving problems, which (for me anyway) means that I would either nail the fault being experienced 'every now and then', so that it never occurred (deference to the customer), or change it wholesale, and find something even more reliable.

This is not still meant as a criticism of yourself or your site - you have given me good answers. It is, I think, more to do with the way in which webmastering is approached.

When defending your setup as 'free' and 'a personal dog site', please accept that, unless there is actually substantial investment from professional sources, we are all operating under exactly the same criteria as yourself (as I am). And some 'personal' sites, such as yourself, do actually look extremely professional, so much so that some visitors (such as myself) might mistake it for a 'big operation'.

However, in the case of Westie-World, I would fully expect the visitor to send me criticism (or at least notification) of any errors or omissions - in fact I have an email address solely for that purpose. So what I am saying is "free and amateur" doesn't lessen accountability.

Anyway, thank you very much for personally activating my account, and I look forward to returning soon. I was sorry to hear that you, too, have incessant trouble with spammers!

Lee.

Hi Andre',
We do allow vendors/distributors to sumit, but they must offer something in content or information other than the mother site. We don't want 50 sites in one area all selling the same product and offering no unique content of information for the visitor.

So I guess it depends on the entire site presentation and quality of content.

Default Submitting to Chazhound

As Chazhound has not yet replied, may I point out that I believe submitting is done through a mailer form at http://www.chazhound.com/cgi-bin/directory/add.cgi, and not by plain email, if that's how you did it?

Hope this helps.
