What's going on-from ukws

Many thanks to those that took the time to email with links and encouragement and offers of help. Incase your getting confused what we want to do is create a UK based and focused Independent news outlet/aggregatorweb site.

The change in the blog format was simply to demonstrate the kind of format we want for a website and just to gage the reaction and to see if we can get some help in setting it up.

Blogger could never host a decent site as it doesn't have the graphic tools to make it look good and as a result will always look amateurish. We cant even seperate the sections using enclosed boxes and so everything looks mixed up and without definition.

We've had some financial offers of assistance but I don't have a bank account so we need someone we trust with a paypal account to set up a donate button and collect donations and pay for the hosting. It's only about £4 a month but without that we can't do anything. so please get in touch if you can help with this.

I want to stress that this project is completely voluntary and not for profit and any money left over will go towards advertising. Not one single penny will go into anyones pockets.

Unfortunately we have a problem. One of the initial contributors set up a uknewsnetwork.com and .co.uk site but then froze the rest of us out of it and won't reply to emails and is posting 'news' so we have lost the name and will have to think of a new one. Any ideas?

I can tell you that put us back a bit and caused a great deal of confusion for a week as nobody could work out what was going on. I want to make it plain that http://uknewsnetwork.com/ has nothing to do with what we are doing here and you can use your own imagination as to why somebody would want to do that. We wish him the best of luck.

Hopefully the next thing you will see on the site is a donate button so please consider trying to help us a little with costs. 10p per vistor for a few hours would probably do it.

News posting will continue as normal and we apologise for the amateurish look and feel of the blog.

Good luck with this. I`m already being drawn into here quite a lot.
