REWIND NEWS FOR 2005

HOW CAN REWIND IMPROVE IN 2006?

Saturday 17th December 2005

We want to make some exciting changes to Rewind in 2006 but there is no point in us doing this if it doesn't make the user experience any better. Therefore, please pop along to The Rewind Forums (no registration is required for the Site Feedback Forum) and list your suggestions of how we can improve the site next year. Also, if you are a bit of a whizz with HTML and php coding and would like to work on the technical aspect of the site, please also post a message within the same thread. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone here at Rewind!

Please do not contact Rewind to discuss this matter directly but feel free to use the forums if you wish.

Secondly, we have expanded our "Latest Rewind Reviews" list on the right from 5 to 10 to enable you to see more of the reviews at a glance. Finally, we have introduced "Sponsors Corner" in the bottom right. This will be used to detail the latest special offers and discounts from one of our site sponsors. Please check this section regularly and buy your products using the links provided as you will be helping towards the future of Rewind.

REWIND CHANGES

Saturday 5th November 2005
