Update ??
« on: November 02, 2010, 06:10:00 AM »
So....
The October Appeal.....
This "Full update will be on-site Monday evening"........
Errrr.....
Where is it , then ??  

It's appearance { or lack thereof } has already been commented upon on various other fora.
You must admit , it doesn't exactly make a good impression , does it ??

It's not the "true supporters" I'm worried about.
It's not the general membership of other aviation fora , either.
Neither is it the vocal minority on other fora who { for personal , vindictive or other reasons } never have anything good or positive to say about '558 , VTTS or VTST { or any other out-dated sets of initials some of the posters use ! }

No.......it's the normal members of the public who never frequent aviation fora , but have { again ! } donated hard-earned money to help save '558.
If any of them { or - god forbid - any of the local / national media who publicised the Appeal } visit the website , what's the first thing they'll see ??
Yup..... a big "You did it !" banner on the home-page , stating catagorically : Full update will be on-site Monday evening
So....they look on the website....what do they find.... ?? ......Nothing !!....zip !!....Nada !!
What are they going to think ??........It doesn't exactly look very professional , does it ??  
Even a simple "We apologise for the delay"-type message would help !!

It will come very soon. There are quite a few people involved in the update who have to agree it and all of them are very busy people with day jobs etc so please, before this gets into an arguement, just be patient a little longer. I know Ian is working flat out to get it on here.

Fully agree Dave.
But it would still be nice if they could actually publicise it to the national media so that all could read about it.
As we well know not everyone has access to the modern internet.

I had a person in Blaby ask me yesterday evening 'How things were going?' Because in their words. 'We heard on radio Leicester that she may not be flying after the end of October. Are they going to have something on soon to tell us one way or the other?'

I of course explained that the appeal had been successful.

They of course seemed glad about it but still upset that they had to find ut for themselves and purely by chance.

It was also mentioned that perhaps someone from VTTS could get something into the Leicester Mercury.

Agree --- a lot of media attention when appeal was in progress --just need these important media leads  followed up

My understanding is that there was a press release sent out - agreed at the same time as the message for this website. However, the media, whether local or national, cannot be forced to run a story - it is up to their editors. I would suggest that unless one of them wants to claim (as many have in the past) that THEY and their readers have saved '558, the best we could hope for as a good news storey is a few lines hidden on the umpteenth page below the 'squirrel hunting for acorns proves hard winter on the way' exclusive...
