Re: Sinodefence.com Suggestions
Firstly, thank you very much for writing such a good feedback. It is always helpful to know what readers think about the website.
Regarding the links of armoured combat vehicles, it is a real headache since there are so many designations for basically the same vehicle. For example, the Type 88 is the operational variant developed based on the Type 80 prototype. The differ slightly in terms of armament configuration etc but they are essentially the same tank. The same happens to the Type 85/88C/96. I'll try to figure out a method to group them more logically. Any suggestion is welcome.
The only thing I know about the Type 96G is the photo, which can be seen everywhere on Internet. I am waiting for some detailed information to come up.
The same happens to the transport vehicle section. For example, there are several variants under Hanyang HY473, including HY4260, HY4301, HY4320, HY4330, etc. There isn't much difference between each variants, so I cannot creat one separate page for each individual variant. However, if I just have one link which is HY473, when people see HY4301 somewhere else and then come to this website for further information on this vehicle, how would they know it is a variant of HY473?
I'll make the link in the menu go dim when it is clicked. However, this may take a while as I am still using low-tech manual process to update the website.
There is actually a good reason why some pages never (or rarely) get updated: I don't know much about them. I am particularly weak in the field of small arms. I simply don't know enough to make any comment. So I am always a bit scared to update those pages just in case I say something stupid
. So if you, or any one you know, knows a great deal about guns and grenade launchers, please help me on this.
As to combat engineering vehicles, I launched a section before but it just looked pathetic as the information was so limited. I need to collect more information before I can re-launch it.
It seems that I can never get the whole website updated before I decided to change to a new website design
This is because I just don't have enough
time to work on it (since I am also doing a full-time job at the same time). I'll try my best to get this version complete.
I am the sole person writing and designing website, but there are several people feeding me information on various topic. Like I said, I am not an expert in every field, so I do need other people in this field to help me out. Also I used to have people help me writing materials for me, but this is not happening at the moment. Webmaster is the guy creating this forum. He is much more technologically minded than I am, that's why he can run this kind of high-tech forum programme
while I am stuck with the old-fashioned HTML
Do we really need another website regarding US military? There is an ocean of information on Internet on every single aspect of the US military. If I had time, I might start a website regarding Taiwan military, and then Japanese military, and then Korea and India, but you might have to wait after I retire before these can be realised
