Review NRL Club Websites

  • We had an issue with background services between march 10th and 15th or there about. This meant the payment services were not linking to automatic upgrades. If you paid for premium membership and are still seeing ads please let me know and the email you used against PayPal and I cam manually verify and upgrade your account.
  • We have been getting regular requests for users who have been locked out of their accounts because they have changed email adresses over the lifetime of their accounts. Please make sure the email address under your account is your current and correct email address in order to avoid this in the future. You can set your email address at https://silvertails.net/account/account-details
  • Wwe are currently experience some server issues which I am working through and hoping to resolve soon, Please bare with me whilst I work through making some changes and possible intermittent outages.
  • Apologies all our server was runing rogue. I managed to get us back to a point from 2:45 today though there is an attachment issue i will fix shortly. Things should be smooth now though

Comment has been made in the "Hard Edge" on the Manly website.

In order to help rational discussion I have included the links below to the official website of every NRL club.

I invite posters to review the other sites and post their comments on the strengths and weaknesses of the various sites.

Features to consider might be:

*Amount of relevant and interesting content
*Amount of intelligent football discussion on forums (if there is one)
*"Look" of site
*Ease of use
*Prominence to sponsors
*Interactive features.
*Links

You may think of others.

I have just visted the Panthers Website and it is a attractive and interesting site. Visually it is modern and appealing. It's ease of navigation with some pull down menus is good. Four forums are accessible and the range of posts was interesting, considering the team lost surprisingly to Parra tonight.

The CEOs column and the e-mail a player features were ones that looked good. The 'Roar' sound effect is also interesting and adds to the appeal.

Players, cheergirls, match results, ticketing, lower grades a news feed are all featured.

Overall a modern and fresh look that is more interesting and appealing.

I would rate it at 8.5/10

as a web geek i have my issues with using a vbulletin CMS.

It has its merits but there were a few thing i was taught when learning Web Dev.

- Black bg with white texy = Hacker/ugly
- Red BG with white text = merry xmas/hard too read

this is why i faught aganst an abundance of maroon for so long

I checked out the panthers site and I saw bugger all photos. I dont like the overal front page design much.

The forum software is better than ME.

It's interesting that theres rational debate there about the current problems with the team!!!! looks like there are other similar threads as well.
PANTHERS FORUM > GENERAL > "we Have Problems"

Site 3/10

Forum 7/10

I'll give it a go but not today (way too busy). I think this is a very worthwhile exercise. I noted the other day that the Sharks one looks like ME so could be done by the same people.

yes it is done by the same comapny. Oz league is the same.

Nextgen have a basic ASP CMS that they push out to a lot of the clubs and just change the look slightly and a few of the colours. But you can always tell its one of theirs.

They are good at what they do but in my professional opinion I think their technology is outdated
