Reading the
Guestbook

Please click the button on the LEFT below to READ the Guestbook

However, the Guestbook is now for  reading only

please don't SIGN the Guestbook and

-  please don't ADD COMMENTS  in it,

despite what the button below says!

I would have liked to keep the Guestbook open for further comments, but that has not  been possible because of the large number of inappropriate spam messages that started to be posted in the Guestbook - over 20 some days.  I've now removed them all.

This button is provided by the people who host the EdinPhoto Guestbook and unfortunately I'm not able to change the wording on this button.

So, if you have any messages please email them to me  rather than post them in the EdinPhoto Guestbook.

Thank you.

Adding Messages to the
Guestbook

Changes

 to Use of the Guestbook

 taking effect from December 14, 2013

EdinPhoto
Guestbook

I believe that the guestbook has served the EdinPhoto site well for several years, but that the time has come to move on, and take a new approach,  i.e.

Instead of adding any more messages to  the guestbook:

(a)   you send your message by email to me (as most people already  do) then

(b)  I'll add your comments to the appropriate page on the EdinPhoto web site.  I believe that should result in:

-  less work for all concerned AND

-  more people who are looking for info finding your messages.

The changes above have been agreed following discussion with EdinPhoto users.  Here is  a fuller explanation  my reasons for making this suggestion, and the replies that I received in response to the suggestion.

Greetings

One particular use that has been made of the guestbook particularly around Christmas time, has been to send greetings messages.  I've now provided this Greetings page on the EdinPhoto web site to hold such messages.

Later (from  14 Dec 2013)

Number of  messages are expected = 0

Here are the reasons for this change.

 Decline in use of the Guestbook

*** It looks as if the number of messages and replies posted in the guestbook was declining throughout 2013 (well before the changes on 14 December came into force) as more people were beginning to send their messages to me by email to add to the EdinPhoto web site, rather than post the messages themselves in the EdinPhoto guestbook.
