WHEN I PRINT THE WEB SITE IT RUNS OFF THE PAGE

After the site redesign in 2007 it became wider. There are two solutions:
  1. Change your Page Setup settings to Landscape (vs.. Portrait).
  2. If you are using Internet Explorer 7, use Print Preview (File-> Print Preview) and then select Shrink to Fit from the menu bar.

HOW CAN I FIND MY SHIPMATES WHO ARE HERE?

The best is to use the Deck Log. Post about yourself in the "Deck Log" section and post about people for whom you are looking in the "Looking for Shipmates" section. Know that you must register and sign in to see those and other sections.

 

HOW DO I CONTRIBUTE PICTURES AND ARTIFACTS TO THE WEB  SITE?

Additions to the site are always welcome! If you are sending pictures, please ensure you provide captions, dates, names and other information that will allows other to know more about each picture.

If you have a scanner, simply scan the items and send them. however please use the following guidelines:

  1. Scan at 100 dpi or higher, Full Color (True Color) as large as you can get them!
  2. Save in GIF or JPG (preferred) format.
  3. Ensure the scans you send are the best they can be so that they will look good on the web site.
  4. Use file names that are somewhat descriptive so I know what they are.
  5. Provide captions for each file in a separate text file or in the text of your e-mail message. Give the file name and then what text should appear with it.
  6. When possible use Zip software to create one, much smaller file that you will then e-mail. Good and easy to use Zip software can be obtained at http://www.winzip.com.
  7. Send the file(s) to dennis@obriens.net

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE STORIES OR ARTICLES TO THE SITE?

Write them! Though there is little of this sort of thing on the web site today, it would greatly enhance the web site to include stories about the ship and those who served on board her. To submit them simply write them and follow the following guidelines.
  1. Use word processing software to write them. This software must be compatible with Microsoft Word or saved in HTML or RTF.
  2. Include pictures, diagrams and such if you like.
  3. When possible use Zip software to create one, much smaller file that you will then e-mail. Good and easy to use Zip software can be obtained at http://www.winzip.com.
  4. Send the file(s) to dennis@obriens.net

DECK LOG VS. ON LINE CREW???

On Line Crew

The On Line Crew is simply how we keep track of contact information for distributing reunion information and e-mail notifications. This data is collected confidentially so that those who wish to remain anonymous can do so but still be a part of the information stream. To join the On Line Crew, there is no password, just a form to submit data. Not being a member of On Line Crew does not preclude one from using the web site or participating in any way but it does mean you’ll not be informed of USS England events and news. Keeping you On Line Crew data is simple, just fill in the form if you want to sign up or there are changes you need made.

You can access the One Line Crew Form here: http://crew.ussengland.org/

 

The Deck Log

The Deck Log is an on line forum. Portions of the forum can be viewed by all. However, much of it is only viewable by individuals you have “registered,” basically signing up and obtaining a user name and password. Signing up for the Deck Log does not sign one up for On Line Crew. What signing up does do is enable you to log on to the Deck Log, read everything and to post. This is the place to post about yourself so shipmates can find you, look for shipmates and also to talk about everything, even off topic subjects. Please sing up and sue this tool!!!

When you sign up for the Deck Log it will send you a verification e-mail. Follow the instructions for activating your Deck Log account. If you receive one mentioning the COPPA Act, it means you selected that you were under 13 years of age and you should e-mail Dennis O’Brien it fix that for you.

If you have any problem signing up or using the Deck Log, please contact me, Dennis O’Brien (
dennis@obriens.net). I can help with almost any issue. The goal is to ensure your experience is the best it can be when talking about the ship, reuniting with old friends and just enjoying the site.

You can access the Deck Log here: http://forum.ussengland.org

The important thing to remember is that, at least for now, the Deck Log and On Line Crew are not the same thing. Sign up for both!
