After many a sleepless night and several revamps I've finally finished the upgrade on the Haunted House Website. It's taken ages, considering I wanted to get it up and running for last Halloween, but hey thats life! I've added loads of new stuff and include some of the old stuff too! Some stuff has gone. So if your interested give it a look.
I've tried to do my best to make it look professional, well as professional as a novice can. Thinking about adding advertisements to try and recoup some of the money I've laid out otherwise I may have to drop it next year. Anyone know how to get advertisements on your sites?

I've spent all afternoon checking the videos, they work best if you download them first. Is there one particular one that is a problem? I'll give it another check.

Have you thought of getting google ads?

Seen this earlier in the Haunted House topic, I can't see what could have offended somebody enough it make you close it down

Hi Gary, don't want to name names but on Monday I received an email that was personal to me from someone at AT. I don't want to reveal what it said because it would reveal who the person was. I wasn't asked to remove the site, it was my own decision. But I felt that it was the right thing to do.
It wasn't a threatening email. I will say that it was related to something that I had written and implied.

Thats a real pity, especially considering the work you put into it. Could you not just remove the thing you had written/implied and reactivate the site? If you were not asked to close down the site or threatened then it couldnt have been that bad!!! Of course I dont know the details, but its a pity especially as you had just redone the site....

I've just put a post on TT about this, I didn't remove the site without giving it thought, I did think about removing the offending comments but I felt as though I'd let this person down and I never intended to do that. I loved my site and enjoyed creating it, and it wouldn't have been possible with out the help of so many people from ATA, TT, and Alton Towers. The thought of upsetting anyone with my site, never mind someone who had given me so much help was quite upsetting. I hadn't thought that some of my comment may offend but they did and until this is resolved I don't think its fair to keep the site on the web. I have deleted the site but still have the images and effects. I couldn't bear to delete them altogether.

Its a shame you've taken the site down. Is there any chance you could put the videos on youtube, or would that be causing the same problems the site was?

That's not good! sad.gif In fact I'd go so far as to say it's totally PANTS!
I loved you site and read all the post and I can't remember seeing anything that could possible offend someone huh.gif
However , as you said, it was kinda personal so I hope it can be resolved and the site be re-instated as you'd worked so hard on it! It was brilliant and all who viewed it appreciated all the hard work which went into producing it! biggrin.gif
You showed the Haunted House off in all it's former glory! Thanks for the glimps into the past biggrin.gif
