UPDATES



This page is intended to make it easy for you to find out what has changed since you last visited the site.

11/08/06    All Photo Pages    Clickable link changed from "Return to PROBLEM PAGE" to "PHOTO
                                                  GALLERY".
                                                  1. The viewer may not have come from PROBLEM PAGE;
                                                  2. There must be a way to break back to PHOTO GALLERY while cycling
                                                      the photos.
                  Photo Gallery        Description of where each photo can lead. To reflect the above changes.
       

02/09/06    Network Maps       Maps and pages made clearer.
03/09/06    Solutions               Proposal 1 Single Women.  " ... as described below in Alternative Reporting"
                                                changed to " ... as described elsewhere in Alternative Reporting",
                                                because Alternative Reporting is a separate page.
                  Solutions               Proposal 4.  www.CAMARM.info has been changed to 
www.CAMARM.info to make it
                                                easier to copy as a link to another website.
02/10/06    Leaflet and Flier Downloads
                                                Quality of the Flier, Left Side, has been improved.  To be consistent, the Leaflet,
                                                Front Face, has been made identical to it.
                                                The words "See over" on each have been changed to "www.camarm.info" to give
                                                more prominence to our web site.
19/10/06    Google listing        Registered with Google on the 12th August, www.camarm.info is at last appearing
                                                on Google's main web searches.  We are still waiting to be listed with the UK filter.
28/10/06    Photos 021-031    Descriptions added to the base of the photos.
                  Photo Gallery        The number 020 changed to 031 to reflect this.

                  Photo Gallery        The number 031 changed to 038 to reflect this.
05/11/06    Solutions                A section entitled Immediate Reporting has been added at the end of Proposal 1,
                                                for reasons that are self-explanatory.
                  Solutions                Links to this section have been added to the second of Solutions Tried So Far (near the
                                                top) and to the 10th paragraph of Proposal 1
                  A Different Approach    A copy of the same section has been inserted after the fourth paragraph.
07/11/06    Photos 039-051   
Descriptions added to the base of the photos.
                  Photo Gallery        The number 038 changed to 051 to reflect this.
22/11/06    All pages (except Photo pages)    Sprinkled with references to Britain, Great Britain, British, the UK,
                                                the United Kingdom, England, Scotland and Wales where appropriate, in order to seed
                                                the website with UK-specific content. We hope that this will qualify the site for Google
                                                listing with the UK filter.
                  This page              The pages listed as having been affected by past changes have been given
                                                hyperlinks to those pages (except for Photo pages).
26/01/07    Photos                   Photos 041a, 046a, 051a, 064a, 073a, 075a, 075b and 082 have been added
.
                                                All photos now have descriptions.
                  Photo Gallery        has been altered to reflect these changes.
                  Home Page           To reflect our confidence in the website, the disclaimer at the base has been removed.
29/01/07    Photos                   
Photos 025a, 026a, 027a, and 028a have been added.
                  Photo Gallery        has been altered to reflect these changes.
                  Locations              On all Photo pages the "Location on Network Map" box now links to its respective
                                                Network Map with a big black arrow marking the location.
04/02/07    Contact Us            The website email address, contactus@camarm.info, has been activated.
                  Home Page           The email item has been deleted from "... hoping to add ..."
26/04/07    Contact Us            Links and Blogs have been added.
02/04/08   
Home Page           2nd sentence "in response to the local problem of rogue motorcycling in their area."
                                                The word "rogue" has been changed to "illegal".  "rogue motorcycling" already hits well
                                                on Google (at #1), but "illegal motorcyclng" does not appear.  We hope that this change
                                                will change this. [Bingo - it has:  the 
CAMARM website now (Aug 2010) hits at #1.]
                                                At bottom, "We are hoping to add links to and from other sites of mutual interest; etc?"
                                                has been removed.  We are already doing so.
                                                We have removed the Bravenet hit counter, with its intrusive pop-up advertisements.
                  Contact Us            The Geocaching Association of Great Britain has added a link to us on their website.
                                                We have added a reciprocal link to them at www.gagb.org.uk.
                                                The www.walkerstalk.com link has been removed, the site having apparently been taken
                                                over by something irrelevant.
                  Alternative Reporting        The Lake District National Park having extinguished the post of Trails Adviser,
                                                we have removed our email link to that office.
02/04/08                                  It was felt by some that our website appeared hostile to all (off-road) motorcycling.  This
                                                was not our intention but, to allay those concerns, we have made the following
                                                additional changes, and thank them for their help and co-operation in making them.
                   Problem
                  Top      Change     Motorcyclists, as people, have as much right as anyone else
                                                to be on bridleways, footpaths and open spaces in Great Britain.
                                                Riding their vehicles in those places enjoys no such right.
                                                Riding them there causes damage, distress and danger.

                                                Riding their vehicles there enjoys no such right, unless permitted by law.
                                                The great majority of motorcyclists respect the law and ride responsibly.
                                                The irresponsible riding of motorcycles in those places causes damage,
                                               distress and danger.
                   Bottom  Change   Rogue motorcyclists seem totally unaware of the damage they do and the effect
                                                they have on legal users of the paths, the hills, the fells and other open spaces.
                                                They continue to break the law openly, relying for their protection on speed,
                                                anonymity and the isolation of observers.

                                                of likely places of entry and exit to speak to the culprits.

01/08/10    All pages              
We wanted to replace "Why don't they ...?" in people's minds by "What can I do ...?"  
                                                 We have therefore added to all pages:
                                                            Ask not Why they don’t do something about itAsk What you can do to help to stop it
                  All pages               The name CAMARM has been given a new look throughout - as CAMARM
                  Solutions               To reflect the maturity of time, we have changed the sense from "have not" to "did not"
                                                  in the first few paragraphs.

                                                 To acknowledge the greater and more effective involvement of the local police
                                                 since Nov 2008 we have recast, and given more weight to Immediate Reporting.
                                                 The hyperlink to Hierarchy of Trails Routes was no longer valid.  Updated.
                  Final Solution        The HERE hyperlink was no longer valid for the DEFRA document.  Updated.
                  Various                  Some typing errors corrected:

Corrected to MAP.
